I just wanted to throw this question out there, WHAT DOES MARRIAGE MEAN TO YOU?
so many times i see couples split up in DIVORCE
so many times i see the guy who hits his wife and she STAYS
so many times i hear about the guy who gets hit by his wife and CRIES
so many times i hear it just didn’t work out and they go their separate WAYS
so many times i see her driving by his “friend’s” house to see if she catches him with another CHIC
so many times i see him flip through her phone to see who she’s been talking to
split bank accounts, sold houses, crying kids, broken hearts, cut up pictures
where’s the love? And understand I KNOW love is not necessarily enough ALL THE TIME…where’s the understanding that MARRIAGE IS NOT EASY? Sometimes we don’t even want to deal with ourselves never mind someone else but i think if you’re going to do it, fly out to Vegas and have the king do it in the Chapel Of Love. But before you do, make sure you believe within the depths of your soul that it is you and this other person TIL DEATH DO YOU PART!
Now I’m not saying commit murder, because Lord knows it’ll cross your mind like reruns of Friends and Sex And The City. You might watch it every single day two to three times a day on four different channels to the point you get so fed up that you go down to best buy on black friday and just buy the WHOLE series box special.
But where is the trust? Where is the faith? I know there may be days when we can’t get enough of each other just like there are days when we don’t want to see each other for another second…I know we might not like each other everyday, but i know we’ll love each other til death do us part!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that all divorces are bad. There are circumstances that require it and I don’t bestow that on anyone, to stay in an unhealthy relationship. However, I think that divorce has become such an easy thing to do, that so many people just give up on relationships that just needed a little more tending to. Some of us get so caught up in all the little things that go wrong that we forget to take a moment to appreciate all the great things going on in our lives. I am not married yet but when I do, I know for a fact that it will be for better and worse and not just for the better.
So what do you think is the meaning of marriage? Do you think that, nowadays, couples throw in the towel too soon? Some say marriage is overrated, but I’m betting it can be something out of this world.
