Welcome to Vows for Eternity, a bespoke and confidential matchmaking service for the global, successful individual, headquartered in New York with an established presence in London, Delhi and Mumbai.
My personal journey of finding the right partner may resonate with you. I got married late by Indian standards and have a deep personal connect and appreciation of not only the time involved in finding that special somebody, but also with the frustrations and disappointments of the search process at large. I currently spend time between San Francisco and India, but having also lived in New York, Los Angeles, London, Melbourne and Delhi, I recognise that challenges across the world are the same when it comes to finding that special person one wants to spend the rest of one's life with. I needed help in my personal search but couldn't find anyone I could relate to and connect with on a personal level. And that is the reason I started Vows for Eternity (VFE) - to make a difference in the lives of someone by connecting them to "The One".
Do I make any guarantees? No, because the most important things in life don't come with promises. But I do know that we have our heart in the right place. I think my greatest professional achievement has been being true to myself and to my reason for starting Vows for Eternity - that of trying to make a positive difference in someone's life and to work towards building something that stands the test of time. This holds as true as it did 10 years ago when I started the Company or perhaps even more so as I have been enriched by the lives of countless people over the years.
Life is full of unexpected twists and turns and ups and downs but overall it’s just been an intensely fascinating journey. Today as I reflect back on life and my own marriage I realise that love, respect, integrity and friendship are my four pillars of marriage. I have realised that no matter how flawed we all are as individuals, we still struggle to accept the flaws of others. I have seen little things being capable of driving two people apart and big setbacks bringing people closer - ultimately it’s all about what we hold on to and what we can let go of. Today I know that love and loss are two sides of the same coin just like laughter and pain are.
I have learnt much, loved intensely and been hurt often. But most importantly, I have learnt that as long as two people really want to be with each other they will find a way to navigate through whatever life throws their way and come out together stronger.
Today as you embark on a new chapter in your life - I wish with all my heart that your dream comes true, like it did for me.
May your journeys be extraordinary, wherever they take you.
