A wedding made in…..
Wedding is synonymous with the unity of two people, who decide that they are ready to spend the rest of their lives together, in a legally and often religiously binding ceremony.
The why of this decision is something which only the people involved can tell you about. The how is also relevant only to the people involved and their families. Each culture and region have their own way of getting married. It could be a quiet ceremony or something on a grand scale with much fanfare. It’s again a matter of personal choice. Sometimes an exclusive ceremony with just a few close friends and family members is enough. And some people and cultures like to make a huge fuss about the whole thing, turning it into a many day event with hundreds of guests involved. Again it’s a choice.
What comes after the vows are taken is much more important than the actual ceremony. The promise to love and honor should be a binding one, which should last a lifetime. Unfortunately it doesn’t do that more often then not. The romance wears off soon after the honeymoon period is over in many cases and rifts and cracks start to appear in the perfectly perceived facade of marriage. The differences become unsurmountable in certain cases ending in a split in the union.
This is not meant to scare people off from getting married but rather in the spirit of an advisory to be more open to understanding the viewpoint of your spouse, to be willing to make compromise and to give it as many chances as you can possibly can. Because like everything in life, love also demands hard work and effort.
Sorry if I went a bit off the brief, but to me marriage is more important than wedding!
So this week consider the notion of a wedding to be the topic for you to write about.
Your story could be the fairy tale account of true love finding itself.
