MARRIAGE: THE LOVE OF A MAN AND A WOMAN EXISTING ON A COMMON GROUND
Marriage is meant to be a blissful experience even in the midst of whatever storm. Just like fire and wind merges to cause a massive explosion, so it is when man and woman come together and are enveloped in the explosion of love all around them. Isn’t that beautiful?
Although man and woman may not be compared in terms of physical strength, however, the real strength lies in the ability of man and woman to express true love for one another – seeking each other’s happiness and not trying to tear each other apart, bring each other down or impinge on each other’s life.
As much as their lives are entwined and interwoven in each other, sometimes, personal space is needed. Understanding is a key companion amongst the friends of love and it is needed for the sustenance of any relationship.
Acceptance of each other as a better half; as a part of his/herself despite flaws and errs is taking a big leap into the path of true love.
I used to sometimes wonder why God could not have imprinted in the memory of man, a picture of his wife so that immediately he sees her, he will know her.
Why do we have to go through the process of searching for the right one? We may wonder. Well, it would interest you to know that God did do this in a way but not as we would have expected. With God, it is not the physical eyes that matter but the eyes of the heart.
He may not have imprinted a photographic image but the heart knows. Remember it is from the rib guarding the heart that woman was formed? So the heart always knows. Someone once said, “The couples that are “meant to be” are the ones who go through everything that is meant to tear them apart and come out even stronger than they were before”.
If after walking the length and breadth of the earth searching for the right one, and you finally find him/her, why then would you choose to make life uncomfortable for that person? Why let unruly and troublesome behaviour come to play in the circus of love?
Man and woman are created to be one. They were created to complement each other and only when they see and accept themselves like this; only when this is achieved can man or woman proudly say, “Completeness is attained”.
