Marriage Life

Most people love weddings and marriage is a wonderful thing! When two people come together and commit themselves to love each other till death parts them, it is truly a beautiful life event. The wedding itself, all the planning that goes into making sure everything is "perfect" from the gown, to the food, the music, the venue, the entourage. So much money and effort spent in planning an exquisite ceremony for friends and family. However after the euphoria of the ceremony wears off, reality sets in.



I think some people expect everything to be just as "perfect" everyday of their married lives. I personally always pay attention to the exchanging of vows. In sickness and in health, for richer or poorer(i think the poorer thing makes me nervous too), and forsaking all others, till death do us part! Hmmmmmmn, yes people recite them with smiles on their faces but do they ever ponder the meaning of their vows when married life turns sour?

Married life is fraught with many challenges. I encourage people to take their time and make sure that when you do get married, you are ready and mature enough to face those challenges. If you have made the choice to commit to someone for the rest of your life then stand firm in your decision and be ready to accept that you will not always be blissfully happy. Living with someone for the rest of your life in harmony will take patience and perseverance. There are not supposed to be any secrets between married people but ask yourself this "do i trust the person sleeping next to me? am i keeping things from them?"
You have to be willing to compromise sometimes, you cannot always have your way! Respect each other and learn to apologize when you make a mistake. Communication is essential to a good relationship. Talk to one another and keep your relationship alive. There is no "perfect" marriage in this world. I believe marriages that last are those where two people commit to one another and work towards building a life together, make decisions together, forgive one another for mistakes made,trust each other and rely on each other during hard times and difficulties.
