The day she got married, she thought it will be the end to her sorrows that she found her prince now.
She happily entered her new House. Day and Night, she worked to make it a Home.
As days unfolded, her beliefs started shattering and everything seemed to prove her wrong. It was not her Happily-ever world anymore.
Quarrels over small things, Arguments over silly topics and Partner’s irresponsible behavior was making her Marriage different from dreams.
She was not able to accept these tides and started believing that her Marriage is a fail.
Since childhood, she believed Marriage to be a Fairytale. The girl has some kind of life crisis, she meets a perfect guy, they kiss, get married, “And They Lived Happily Ever After.”
Marriage is not a bridge to an ever-happy land. It takes work and yes, Time.
Nothing comes in a complete perfect package and Marriage is no exception. How can anyone be perfect, we all have our own flaws. When you expect the other one to become perfect, things start getting a bad shape.
Downtime exists in Marriage too. There will be “Ifs and Buts”
See it like this– Till we reach marriageable age, we already have our habits set. Now when a new person enters into our Life and starts questioning and stirring those habits, we feel offended.
Marriage is to settle down with the differences two people have in their Lifestyle, priorities, and beliefs.
When you are married and running a household and have a million things to take care of, you end up arguing, you end up getting hurt or you end up hurting your partner.
I myself said this a million number of times “I wonder why I got married” in 5 years of my Marriage.
We both went wrong, we failed, we said sorry, we got up and moved ahead again. But despite these blue moments, we try to follow few things that help in filling the cracks that begin to show after few years of marriage:
- We call each other at least once a day to talk about where and what each one is doing.
- We attend parties together.
- We go for morning or after-dinner walks.
- We watch movies together; though rare these days as our Toddler keeps us busy and sleep only after making us sleep.
- We tease each other about high-school crushes.
- We do not hide respective social Life.
- We give each other a personal space.
- We do not quit on each other.
Saying that I do nag him sometimes for him watching TV when I am in a mood for a chit-chat or for his last-minute firefighting while going out.
But hey! It’s our indifference that adds spice to our Life. BTW, Who wants a tasteless food for Life.
DO YOU BELIEVE IN HAPPILY EVER AFTER MARRIAGE?
