By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you will be happy. If you get a bad one, you will be a philosopher.Socrates
Today also marks exacty 10 years, 4 months and 4 days since I have known my wife. I must say that looking back, those were the most wonderful 3776 days of my life well spent when you know that you have spend it with someone whom ended up as your spouse.
I know that I have not been a good husband. In fact, I realised that after marriage, I had more to do to sustain my lovelife and family life together. I learnt more about making sacrificies and about giving in and taking moderately, all the basic necessities in life.
Thank you my dear wife for helping and shaping me to become who I am and what I am right now. I do hope that we will remain together till death do us part.
Marriage is a fundamental social institution, providing the foundation of a harmonious and enriching family life and the basic building block of our society. Regardless of religion, culture or constitutional tradition, societies have always agreed on the nature of marriage.
Life transitions require change and often we are not prepared for our reactions to them. Couples who choose to become engaged are “in love,” and would assess their relationship as “good.” In a good relationship, you are free to discuss concerns and feelings with each other.
Marriage is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make. Consequently, some degree of anxiety is to be expected. Your nervous feelings may be the result of the fact that you take commitment very seriously.
You asked me whom would I have made my wife had our path not crossed.You asked me what would have happened should we have not met before.
I understood what you are asking of me. And I know why you are asking me. Indeed, if you need me to repeat to you, I would have said the same thing here.
I have to admit. I never was a fan of Woody Allen. Among the throngs of films that he have acted, directed or produced, I have seen only one. And that was also because Scarlett Johansson was in the film. 🙂
However, there was 1 quote from him that I remembered till this day. That quote stirred up my thoughts from the moment I first heard about it several years back and brought upon interesting discussions among my circle of friends, including my?then girlfriend turn fiancee turn?wife.
This is the quote from Woody Allen.
I came across this as I was reading a book in the school library. I was so fascinated by it that I decided to put it up here for my references, at least in the not so distant future.
Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender,be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant;they too have their story.
