THE TRUTH ABOUT MARRIAGE – From a Man’s perspective
Marriage, it is the ultimate proclamation of Love that a man and woman share with each other. It is a statement to the world that these two are prepared to live their lives together, through thick and thin, till death do them part. It is the unity of love .
That’s how the world would define marriage. But now lets just take a man’s perspective.
Their definition of marriage follows somewhat the same idea:
Marriage means the binding of two souls FOREVER. It means that they will stay together TILL ONE OF THEM DIES. In short marriage is the institution where a man loses his Bachelors degree and woman gains her Masters.
Another definition for marriage uttered in some part of the world, is this:
Getting married is very much like going to a continental restaurant with friends. You order what you want, then when you see what the other fellow has, you wish you had ordered that.
HOW IT ALL BEGINS ?
Normally your happily married couple will tell you their story of how they got married. We met in the park, fell in love at first sight, and got married.
Ask a man how he got married, and you will get stories like these:
A man inserted an ‘ad’ in the classifieds: “Wife wanted”. Next day he received a hundred letters. They all said the same thing: “You can have mine.”
When marrying, people need to be prepared. The bride must accept the fact that she is about to leave her parents, and start a new life, with another person, start her own family. And basically adapt to all the changes that are about to come
When a man prepares for marriage, he must realize he is about to support a new person, start a new life, give up his right of the closet, and that he is always wrong!!
He must also prepare four rings, rings which will symbolize his feelings for his true love.
There is the engagement ring
The wedding ring
And the endu-ring
On Parental Responsibility
Bringing up kids is the job of both the parents. Mothers are usually nurturing of their children, bringing them up, taking care of their basics and making them into the perfect little gentlemen or lady.
But that does not mean that the husband doesn’t do anything, he contributes to their learning. Just take a look at these 2 examples.
A little boy asked his father, “Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?” And the father replied, “I don’t know, son, I’m still paying for it.”
Young Son: Is it true, Dad, I heard that in some parts of Africa a man doesn’t know his wife until he marries her? Dad: That happens in most countries, son.
And just talking on the fact that people know each other before getting married, here are some other incidents:
After a quarrel, a wife said to her husband, “You know, I was a fool when I married you.” And the husband replied, “Yes, dear, but I was in love and didn’t notice it.”
At the cocktail party, one woman said to another, “Aren’t you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger?” The other replied, “Yes I am, I married the wrong man.”
Marriage needs three important things:
1. Understanding each other
2. Always being helpful
3. Never letting there be a dull moment
