Many of us have heard the saying, "Love is blind." My interpretation of what this means is to be focused on what you are about to become part of in marriage.
Marriage is not for the faint of heart, in fact one must commit themselves to a live of togetherness. Any time a person decides to marry someone, they are communicating to the world, they have found what they have been looking for their entire life.
Can we really say we really know the person we married? Tough question to ask, however its one worth discussing. Rely on your own experience to tell you whether you really know the person you married.
Sometimes the person you married you may feel as though you know them and at other times its like living with a stranger. Why is this so?
Great question and I will answer it for you. Plain and simple, people change and sometimes its subtle and other times its dramatic. Whether you are willing to accept the change in its maturity is the issue.
Love plays a pivotal role and marriage or at least it should. If you are talking with you spouse and you ask them if they love you and they say, "You have no idea how I feel about you," it may be time for further discussion.
Making a full and complete commitment to marriage is important because you do not want to live with someone you hate. Love transcends misunderstandings, miscommunication and shortcomings we all have in life. Unconditional love means we are willing to invest a bit more of our personal selves while we interpret and understand things about our spouses we do not agree with.
Marriage takes commitment, love and affection and its up to us to work with what we have personally and as part of a union of marriage. Affection plays a key role in marriage, in that its a bonus in a marriage because you can be friends with your spouse and support them, even if you do not agree with their decisions on matters affecting you and or your children.
In a nutshell, enter into marriage with your eyes wide open. Work on becoming the best spouse you can be and continue to create good experiences for you and your family. Commitment, love and affection will provide invaluable benefits to your marriage and its up to you to make your marriage succeed.
