In a relationship, most couples dream of getting married to the partners they are in love with. But is love the only criteria for marriage? Obviously, that’s a big no. So what is marriage all about?
Marriage they say, it’s a legally and socially sanctioned union, usually between a man and a woman, that is regulated by-laws, rules, customs, beliefs, and attitudes that prescribe the rights and duties of the partners and accords status to their offspring (if any).
Every couple is different, and so is their relationship. So there’s no one-size-fits-all magic formula for a happily ever after. However, there are some key elements to a long-term, healthy partnership.
Below are the three most important ones:
1. Commitment: Commitment is more than just wanting to stay together for a very long time. It’s the act of choosing your partner for life and promising to go through all of its ups and downs together till date so you are apart. And while there may be plenty of fish in the sea, being married means you are wholeheartedly invested in making the relationship last for a very long time, casting away any doubts that this is just a temporary experiment.
2. Love: While most married people start out their relationships being in love, sustaining that feeling for each other takes effort, sacrifice, and generosity. True love means putting your partner first and giving of yourself without expecting anything in return. It also helps you to accept each other for who you are, flaws and all, and to forgive each other when you fall short anywhere.
3. Respect: Expressing love, no matter how heartfelt, doesn’t actually mean much if marriage partners don’t have respect for each other. Respecting your partner for their qualities, thoughts, and capabilities means that you not only accept but also admire your differences. Respect can also help you listen to each others’ opinions and overcome every challenge and disagreement.
Of course, while these are the most important things in a marriage, there are plenty of other elements to keeping a marriage happy, including patience, communication, intimacy, trust, empathy, and humour as well.
Now let me ask this; if all these qualities are needed for a marriage to work, then what would push kids to commit themselves to one another? Sounds outrageous right?
Well, not to these kids. In a rare but beautiful case of marriage, The names of these kids were held but we were able to their age. This beautiful young couple finally confesses to each other that they will be together, forever. We don’t know the reason why these kids got married at this tender age but they truly look cute together.
Their families supported them on their love journey. Now they will be one until death does them apart. Everyone was a witness to this special bond between these children. They even signed the marriage certificate in front of everyone who attended the wedding.
Even though people did not agree with these children getting married but they had no other choice. They had the most expensive wedding as if there are old. This shows that both the big and girl comes from a rich family. Their wedding tiers were so beautiful there were specifically designed for them. The wedding dress of a girl was looking so pretty.
