I wonder why people exclaim, “Finally the couple in love got married! Happy endings!”I have always thought of love and marriage more as a journey that begins when a couple commits to be life partners. It continues throughout the life, till the moment when one of the them takes the last breath or due to an unfortunate breakup of relationship or a divorce, they separate. However, the marriage continues till the moment they are together.
Marriage gets enriched in layers with a new chapter unfolding every day. With each layer revealing a taste of love, care, adoration, respect, and exploring something new every day. Why romanticise life unnecessarily? It’s not sweet ‘nones’ all the time! Its full of scowls, arguments, anger, insecurities, fears, fights and extreme feelings of hatred too when you feel like parting ways with your partner. But the best part of this journey is the point at which you feel that you need to forget these feelings and shut your mouth to explore more happy moments of smiles, laughter and a joyous togetherness forever.
A very long journey of togetherness meant to be for just the two of them! Not always ” perfect” but definitely worthy, if it gets enriched with efforts, understanding and time..So I feel, give it a thought to make it a marriage that ends not when you get married but starts when you get married!
