Tying the Knot


Marriage is one of the major events that we go through in this life. It could turn out in bliss or total disaster. I don’t consider myself an expert but having been married for fourteen years, I’d like to share some of the things that I’ve learned. ‘Hoping that it’ll help you along the way. You probably find this harsh but hey, so is life. Marriage is not a laughing matter or a joke.

Be Yourself

This doesn’t have anything to do with marriage itself. Rather leading to it. Show your true attitude. Do not try to impress each other, being careful not to offend each others feelings. Be honest and be blunt. Marriage is all about trust. If you like to fart, fart don’t hide it. Just reveal the true you. Don’t think that he or she would be turned off. Don’t do it on your first date though. See, what happens if you let those barriers go down after your marriage. You both will be asking what happened and realize that everything change once you got married. Let it out . Don’t be afraid. If you drool while sleeping let her see it. If you can’t control your fart let him hear it. It is better to find out the things that annoys you while you’re dating than later on after your marriage.

Don’t Marry for Love Alone

There’s a saying “Love is Blind,”. Yes, indeed love can blind you that you overlook the other important things. Remember you are going to be with this individual for the rest of your life(‘hope so). Love alone cannot put food on the table. Make sure you’re both financially stable and responsible. Sooner or later, you’re going to have children. And having children is costly. Marry someone that’ll be there to help you and not totally depend on you or just let you do everything.

Character Before Appearance

Again, you’ll be with this individual 24/7. It’s not only about sex. Physical appearance wears out eventually as you age. Character does not. Be with someone who you have something in common with. Otherwise you’ll end up contradicting each other all the time. Marry someone who shares the same believes and faith – I cannot stress this enough especially if you are a believer in Christ.

Good luck out there. Have fun, and if you do get hurt. It’s fine, its called life. Let time take its course and heal up. You’ll be ready again for this race called life. The goal is not to win but to finish it.
