I must admit that I felt a little lost going through the first two paragraphs but appreciate the way the reading took the flow to the conclusion.
I am unmarried and when I saw the theme, the first thought the came to my mind was to just scribble “No comments” but curiosity got the better of me and I read through the whole passage.
My thoughts are solely based on my understanding of marriage and I may be completely wrong since I don’t talk from experience.
This particular sentence resonates with my thoughts- That's the irony of marriage as we've created it. Per me, marriage is between two individuals and what they make out of it. Within the constructs of being good, just, humane and responsible, it is solely the resolve of two people on how they want to embark on this beautiful journey of marriage, love and companionship. I don’t think any society or family or friends can define this bond. I think marriage is an interesting aspect of life to be able to grow with your partner, to share, respect, cherish, understand, uplift, love, encourage, enjoy each other’s company and enrich one another’s life and the community around you.
No being is perfect and just like everything marriage needs work too. It might not be easy but it is the will to make it as simple and enriching as possible.
Is to uplift
Is freedom to be yourself
Is freedom to grow
Is freedom to change
Is freedom to express
Is freedom to be different
Is freedom to fail
Is freedom to disagree
Is freedom to say No
This would be the most apt understanding of love for me - Love is the most authentic experience within the framework of the human adventure. All I would like to say is - enjoy this adventure or experience to the fullest and leave no stone unturned to make it all worth it!
