In our society marriage is considered the most integral part of one’s life. It is believed that marriage completes a person. As they say in Greek mythology when Zeus cut the children of moon ( who were male combined with female) into half , each half sought the other half all its life till they got reunited. Marriage is considered pretty much the same just there is one problem…
In our socities we are only told about the good things about marriage which most of the times are only delusions which merely exist for example the concept of happily ever after, a companion for love and affection, a big happy family and so on. But let me come towards matters that you wont be likely ever told about marriage…
Matter No 1: Sacrifice:
Sacrifice is a big part of any married life and it can come from either spouse, marriage is not some happy-go-lucky charm, it really takes a lot of “giving up” on habits, jobs, desires, passions, careers, etc.
Matter No 2: Responsibilities:
From the day 1 of your marriage till your death bed, marriage will surround you with a deep ocean of responsibilities, of your husband, of your in-laws, of your children etc.
Matter No 3: Worries and Stress:
First the stress of not having children, then stress of having them, then their school, then their college, then their jobs, then their marriage and then the kids of your kids and so on…
Matter No 4:Privacy Exploitation:
Marriage and privacy are two parallel roads that can never meet no matter how much you try, what’s their is yours and what’s yours is theirs, period.
Matter No 5: Constrain
Marriage has the ability to bound and paralyze you to a very great extent. The companionship and obligation can restrain you from following your life long dreams and passions.
Of course there are always 2 sides to a coin, like its curses, it has its blessings too but marriage is a vow which is not to be forced upon someone, but it should be fulfilled with full dedication and commitment whole heartedly.
