Love is easy. Love is simple and beautiful. Marriage, on the other hand, is difficult. Marriage can be simply ugly sometimes. Most often, we get married because of our need for companionship. And we marry the person we love. So, why does the love get lost somewhere once you get married? Or was Julie Andrews right when she said, “All love shifts and changes.’’ Maybe, it is true that you can’t be wholeheartedly in love all the time.
Marriage needs to be worked upon. A lot more goes into marriage than just love. The most important things in marriage would be trust and respect. If you don’t trust the person you marry, sooner or later it would cause huge problems. Respect is also equally important. It is not just respecting the person, but also respecting his/ her wishes and respecting their views in life.
Love and marriage are two different things. You can’t serve it in the same plate. I don’t remember who said it, but there is a saying, which goes like, “If you want to read about love and marriage, then you have to buy two separate books.” Love can last in a marriage, but only love can’t make a marriage work. That is the key, which needs to be remembered. So, don’t just get married because you love the person and think you can love him or her forever. Forever doesn’t exist. Change is the only constant.
Another thing I would like to add would be ‘Getting divorced just because you don't love a man is almost as silly as getting married just because you do.’ You need to find reasons to make the marriage work. You are really a fool if you expect a successful marriage without having to work on it.
