In the present age, love has become a verb, a satire and most of all, a misused term. Kids now say it all the time to their age-mates who they think they have feelings for but in the real sense, it is just lust. Grown-ups who we were hoping would at least maintain the meaning of the word are better exploiters. However, some have still managed to uphold the value of the term and still go to the extent of making the best out of it by getting married.
Marriage is a union whereby you both agree to be committed to each other, to love each other in good and bad times and most of all, to fulfill each other’s desires. When married, you have someone who you can lean on and a shoulder to cry on when times get rough. After a long or disappointing day at work, you have something to go home to (your spouse). It’s like having a puppy, that is, on getting home, you have something or rather someone that puts a smile on your face and takes your tiresomeness away. When you get ill there is someone to take care of you.
However, arguments and fights are inevitable. Someone once said, “Every day is not a Sunday.” The same theory applies to marriage, not every day will be a day of joy and laughter. Misunderstandings always come up one way or another. Either by both of you not being on the same page or if one of you messes up. The beauty of these fights is that they spice up a relationship and remind the both of you what a blessing it is for you to be together.
Marriage needs energy, commitment, and dedication. But at the end of the day, you feel happy that you have someone to complete you, make you happy and most of all, someone to love you. And that right there is the beauty of marriage.
