Witnessing a marriage is really beautiful.. Marriage.. It's when 2 people makes the commitment to be together for the rest of their life; accepting each others' differences; sharing life's bittersweet moments; always together in sickness and in health.
Some sees marriage as a burden, some rush into it because of accidents, some use up a few years to plan for their dream wedding. But no matter what the circumstances are, when vows are exchanged, one should always remember and honour it.
Genesis 2:22-24 : Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, " This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, for she was taken out of a man." For this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
I was at my cousin's wedding dinner last weekend and my uncle gave a speech that night which i believed left a big impression to everyone who was present that night. " It's okay for couples to quarrel, but at the end of the day, u must not forget to say three big words".. The first thing that comes to your mind?? I LOVE YOU.. No,you are wrong..haha.. Actually, the 3 words are " You are right, my dear". Always say this before you sleep to your partner, just to keep the peace at home"
So at the end of the day, marriage is not all about love only. It's about trust, tolerance, acceptance, sacrifice and understanding between two different people; so that two hearts can unite and become one to form a family and a life together. The goal of a marriage is not to think alike, but to think together.
As scary as the commitments might sound, marriage is still a beautiful thing because i believe every marriage is God's plan and a match made in Heaven. ♥
