The relationship between a parent and a child is pure – it begins long before a child is born. The relationship between siblings is by blood. A relationship in which you don’t have to make compromises is friendship. But there is a relationship which is made my God. When two unknown people, whether from the same or from different cultural background decide to hold each other’s hand and share their future as a husband and wife, they come together because of God. Such relationships are made by God and that’s why I think they say that marriages are made in heaven.
By writing this blog, I want to share my thoughts on marriage and relationship. It either takes years to find a life partner or sometimes we just find that person in no time – it’s all about destiny. And finally, the D-Day (wedding day) arrives when the wedding bells ring and the bride and the groom take the wedding vows. They promise to be there for each other and to support each other in good times and the bad times.
A successful marriage is not about living together for years, it’s actually living together happily with each other. We never get things easily in our lives; if we do get something easily, we forget to value its importance. For a happy marriage, both husband and wife have to make compromises…they both have to stand for each other when necessary, and they both have to love each other. For a plant to grow it needs proper sunlight, sufficient water, and a good fertilizer. It is only after the plant receives everything it grows and has beautiful flowers on it. In the same way, a marriage needs proper understanding. A married couple should spend sufficient quality time with each other and discuss little things about their lives to make their marriage work.
Grooming a relationship is always important which can be done either by going out on a holiday trip or gifting each other occasionally, or even just by saying ‘I love you’ to each other. The word love is not only about affection it is also about caring. Trusting your partner without even knowing about him and supporting him even without him asking for it is a big thing. I personally feel that in a relationship, we must remember two things: first, never break the promises made to your loved ones because when you don’t keep up your promises then it’s not just a word that you break but you also break the trust. And the second thing that you should remember is to never expect anything from your partner. When expectations are not met, we hurt ourselves and others too. An understanding husband and a supporting wife together make a relationship valuable. It doesn’t matter if you are married for 2 years or 25 years, every couple will face some tough time (be it a love marriage or an arranged marriage). There will be ups and downs in life but they will not last for long. Always remember, life is like a storybook. And the last line of the book is, and they lived happily ever after!
