Because marriages do not fail, people fail

Earlier in the week, I read that one of the bloggers whose blog I love to read has gotten herself hitched. And I just love hearing people getting hitched. The camaderie, the beauty, the purity, I love it all. Prior to her getting hitched, she posted a little somethin' in her blog, which I have gotten to love. Here goes : -

Because to the depths of me, I long to love one person,
With all my heart, my soul, my mind, my body…

Because I need a forever friend to trust with the intimacies of me,
Who won’t hold them against me,
Who loves me when I’m unlikable,
Who sees the small child in me, and
Who looks for the divine potential of me…

Because I need to cuddle in the warmth of the night
With someone who thanks God for me,
With someone I feel blessed to hold…

Because marriage means opportunity
To grow in love in friendship…

Because marriage is a discipline
To be added to a list of achievements…

Because marriages do not fail, people fail
When they enter into marriage
Expecting another to make them whole…

Because, knowing this,
I promise myself to take full responsibility
For my spiritual, mental and physical wholeness
I create me, I take half of the responsibility for my marriage
Together we create our marriage…

Because of this understanding
The possibilities are limitless.

I personally like the line which I had coloured in pink, because they are so true. We can't say marriages fail, because they don't. It is really up to humans. And to me, as humans, something as pure as marriage is really something that you need to put your whole soul into because it signifies your promise to God that you are going to take care of each other, no matter what.

Hugs and kisses. Missing my sayang.
