“ Marriage is not about compatibility, companionship, or extracting happiness. It is an opportunity to achieve a union that will open up a greater possibility ”
Relationships are not about extracting happiness but about giving joy to the other. Short journeys can be made alone, long journeys need reliable and resilient Relationships.
What most people are calling marriage right now is just a whole bundle of expectations about how the other person should make heaven for you. If you're trying to extract happiness out of somebody, you will be disappointed.
When one marriage partner tries to control the other, it shows a lack of real love. But when they express their love in continual thoughtfulness for the true happiness of the other, it becomes divine love
A marriage is not an absolute thing that you can do once and forget. It is an active partnership.
You plant a coconut & a mango tree in your garden, when they were saplings they were of the same height, you thought they will get along pretty well, if both of them remain stunted & never grow, they will remain compatible, same height, everything; But if both of them grow to their full potential, they will grow to different heights, shapes & possibilities
