This is the story of
…who meet at a local community college.
Chahana has come to the States to learn about marketing…
…so that she can help take her fatherâ€s small fabric-making business global.
John has an athletic scholarship that pays for half of his tuition.During his downtime, he plays soccer with others from the Visiting International Student Association (VISA).
Chahana, who is also a VISA student from southern India, often goes to see the games.
She loves Johnâ€s â€œwin by all meansâ€ attitude and his aggressiveness on the field.
A mutual friend introduces them after learning of Chahanaâ€s interest in John, and they soon begin dating.
John also volunteers with a group that teaches inner city children how to play soccer.
Chahana finds herself even more attracted to him because in her mind this means he is good with children.
Their casual dating quickly becomes a serious relationship. So it is not surprising to friends when discussions of marriage come up.
But Chahana is adamant about waiting until closer to graduation, as she is excited about developing her writing and marketing career.
Her professors tell her constantly that she is a brilliant writer.
In contrast, Johnâ€s student counselor never gains a clear sense of Johnâ€s post-collegiate interests or goalsâ€¦
…just that he is almost entirely consumed by soccerâ€¦and Chahana.
The counselor urges John to focus on this strength in math, which sounds good enough to him…
…he is good at following rules, and the logical cause and effect of mathematics appeals to his regimented mind.
Much to Chahanaâ€s familyâ€s dismay, John and Chahana stay togetherâ€¦
…and marry during their senior year.
Chahana lands a great editorial position with a major trade journal in a big city straight out of college on the strength of her portfolio…
…it is such a huge opportunity that her parents feignedly support her decision.
John struggles to find his wayÂ¾his 3.0 average does not seem to impress the schools he applies to, so he picks up substitute and temporary positions.
Although he is thrilled to be married to the girl of his dreams and is proud of Chahanaâ€s accomplishments, John cannot help but envy what he identifies as Chahanaâ€s easy success.
Worse yet, with John only working part-time, her writing job does not pay well enough to support a good life for two in the city.
Oh no! No cash left.
The two argue frequently over bills. Her calls back home alone eat up most of the little discretionary spending the two might have had.
Then the couple receives a godsend.
John gets an offer to teach middle school math in the suburbs where …
…Chahana’s salary can buy a respectable middle class homeÂ¾and her boss is amenable to her working remotely.
In his new position, John will narrowly out-earn Chahana.
The two are finally comfortable, and all seems to be falling into place.
Over time, Chahana begins to feel alienated from her colleagues, her family, her culture, and her home.
Despite their financial success, Chahanaâ€s parents become more vocal in their disappointment in Chahanaâ€s decision to leave home and marry an american.
During her phone calls home, seeds are planted that grow into heated arguments between John and Chahana.
A year later, Chahana becomes pregnant, and with the added stress and frequent morning sickness…
She decides to resign her post and take up freelancing for the added flexibility.
Problem: the two are now down to one salary, and they have become accustomed to living on two.
John quickly identifies an opportunity to exploit his first passion: soccer.
He jumps into an open middle school coaching position, which commands a small bonus and he argues…
Helps keep food on the table
A phrase he increasingly uses to justify any action.
Besides, he is a good coach. He leads the team to a regional championship in his first fall season.
The championship is a moment of huge validation for John; his dedication to the teamÂ¾and their resulting successÂ¾has made him something of a hero in the athletic department and with the students and their parents. He is finally being recognized, and winning feels good.
