"Your house transforms to a home, the minute you marry and your spouse moves-in"
... words of advice from the elders; usually to a young male bachelor, in Asian countries.
 
If you believe me, the word "home" holds a lot of transformational-gravity in the above statement. Among several other things, it means that you can no longer hang your washed-socks through the ceiling fan for drying, wipe the chocolate cream off your lips with a table cloth, keep magazines under your pillow, invite your friends for a late-night booze party, ...
 
Basically, it means that the male cannot, anymore, do anything that even remotely hints on bachelorhood.
 
Frankly, I think it should apply to females as well. Jus' to take a look at this gender: unmarried females glue to their cellphones like a lizard to a ceiling, carry the same handkerchief all the time - be it to an Ice Cream Parlor or a Cinema Theatre, demand that they be reminded about items on their to-do list at odd hours, have forsaken the art of cooking to the archival history books of a barren library, ...
 
Having said that, however, I must clarify that the wedding moment transforms the jeune filles too. But if its for good after all, I'm not sure.
 
Post-wedlock, they use their hubby's handkerchief irrespective of the parlor, the culinary activities of the kitchen are postponed till the weekend (or just Sunday mornings - to be precise), their phone bills are now paid by their life-partners, and their list-of-demands expands like a chewing gum pulled at both ends!
 
In western countries (aka. Europe and America), the "move-in" mostly occurs before marriage itself. I would dare to imagine that bachelorhood there, for both sexes, is different. In particular, with respect to the freedom to choose; borne out of financial independence begining at teenage itself. The concept of "dating", practically absent in Asia, acts as a preliminary to nuptials there. Be it the ambience of McDonald's ready-to-eat burger or a Schlotzsky's Deli serious sandwich, I bet the experience is worth it.
 
The culture to promote (and accept) the individual's choice there extends right from the 'Its like...' exclamations to the 'You know...' wisdom of chirpy girlz.
 
Post-matrimony however, I am sure, the transformational changes are experienced by both there too. Well, to clarify here, I do not mean that after marriage a Sprint (cell phone) gives way to a BlackBerry or that the Papa John's (pizza) becomes a Little Ceaser's.
 
Considering the global nature of the topic, let's traverse through its fundamentals as well.
I believe that there are, basically, 3 Fs that make-up a female: Fructose, Fashion, and Fun. Though we are talking about only the feminine gender here; I suspect that these building-blocks are the ones actually responsible for the transformation per se.
 
To the novice, Fructose is a constituent of sugar that provides the sweetness in it. Factually, it is the males who have to sweat-out n cultivate the harvest that finally yields it. Lets recognize the point with clarity from the gushes below.
 
"That dress fits you fabulously.." "The food you cooked today was simply great!" "You are looking extremely gorgeous tonight". "How was it?" ....

 
The noticeable point above is that irrespective of a blonde's skirt or a traditional saree, Italian pizza or Chinese noodles, subtle intonations to the climactic act; the fact remains. Mind you, the intonations and the act are purely human in nature (I mean independent of geography, culture, language, ... )
 
Coming to the second element, Fashion means more than just L'Oréal Lip Rouge, Wella Powder Puff, and Lakmé Blushtones. Fundamentally, its the beauty in its entirety; including behavioral charm. To interprete the cliche "Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder" - it simply means that every single female on earth is beautiful (as long as they can coerce a male to certify it).
It is easy to suspect that fructose and fashion are interdependent.
 
FTV
hints on the reality of feminine fashion leading to the generation of fructose. In the same way, promotion of fashion stems from the desire to relish fructose. I mean not everybody watches the French TV channel for sole apparel enlightenment. Right?
 
finally, Fun is the motivator among these 3 constitutive elements. In other words, it is the means as well as the end. From enjoying a Bugs Bunny cartoon clip with younger brother, a bit of Salsa shakin' in a discotheque with boyfriend, cooking a delicious Oriental dish to enjoy with husband, ... all lead to fun. Its just hard to miss noticing this element anywhere.
 
You would agree from above that the lives of females and males are inseparable. Marriage only serves as an avenue that further brings them closer to each other. Its that once-in-a-lifetime moment which promises a homely life ahead.
