They started out as friends, then they fell in love

Shanmugha Selvi and Prakash Ganapathy hope to grow old having fun-filled adventures together.

There are no surprises in their marriage, declares Prakash Ganapathy, not only because he and his wife, Shanmugha Selvi Rajagopal know each other so well but also because they spend almost every hour of the day with each other: they run a bridal and retail business in Petaling Jaya together. Valentine’s Day dinners or getaways are always planned together, as are their birthday and anniversary celebrations.

“We are together almost always. There is no time to plan any surprise as the other person will inevitably get wind of any so-called surprise. It wouldn’t work, ” says Prakash, 47.
