Does a long-distance relationship between a married couple really work, especially after a baby is born? We can never feel the pain until we go through the same. Every individual has their own perception of marriage. Some want to fall in love first and then get married; some want to experience the feeling of love and being loved by someone only after marriage. But the ultimate thing we want in a marriage is that one person in our life with whom we can share our pain, who can understand us, whom we can trust and most importantly who can be beside us during all difficult situations. When a relationship faces a geographical separation, it becomes difficult to handle the relationship, especially when one of them is not willing to move apart. With an increase in distance between two, chances of misunderstanding increases.
I remember the days when my father stayed away from us for his profession, and my brother chose to move to a different country for his studies. I had missed their presence, but my relationship as a daughter and sister never felt weak or disturbed the way it feels in one year of marriage life that too just after a baby. This is the time when we, as new parents need each other’s support both physically and mentally. Also, to cherish the moments together by watching the baby grow. Circumstances force us to stay away. When we are not ready for any such situation, it’s quite a difficult task. What if we already had a vision of such a situation which would last for a few months but what makes it more worst is that the few months turns into many months and then into a year. People may think that a relationship will not be affected just because they are far away; in fact, it should just get stronger. But that’s only when you receive proper support from your family and when people around understand and respect your thoughts. When you start giving justification for your thoughts and needs, the relationship just weakens. When one makes a promise of taking responsibility equally, promises to take care of you at all situation, promises to be there all time but then never turns up to full fill any of those promises, you just end up losing trust in them. It becomes difficult to believe them again. And in a relationship, trust and believe should never go missing.
More than words, tears express the pain of such a long-distance relationship.
It takes hours together to cover the distance between two places while it takes years together to cover the distance between two hearts.
