What I Got Wrong About My Parents’ Marriage

Natasha Singh stood out as one of the few Indian women in a small Canadian mountain town. And she wasn’t afraid to be different from those around her. When she was 13, she shaved her head. By the time she turned 17, she had completely run away. A few years later she came out to her mother.

Natasha’s worldview was quite different from that of her very traditional immigrant parents. Her mother always wore a saree and never wore her pants. Natasha longed for the power and control her father wielded in her family. She hesitated at the idea of ​​her getting married. That is, until she found Branlee.

Decades after leaving home and watching her parents grow old together, Natasha reflects on a newfound understanding of them and an appreciation for their shared dedication.

‘Modern Love’ will be hosted by Anna Martin and produced by Julia Botero, Cristina Jossa, Elissa Dudley and Hans Beetow. The show is edited by Sarah Sarathorn and executive produced by Jen Poyant.
