Have you ever noticed that fairy tales always have a happy ending? The Beautiful Princess falls for her Prince Charming and they live happily ever after. Fairy tales always offer a suggestion that all problems and pains will magically disappear when true love enters the picture
Although it’s easy to imagine a world of bliss and happily ever after, we forget that marriage, in majority, is about routine ordinary moments wrapped up in an extraordinary commitment. Marriage is all about the day to day choices – choosing love over selfishness, keeping the peace of being right, and having intimacy instead of control. Marriage is about striving for faithfulness and resisting temptation. It is the day in day out of two people learning to love in a way that they never imagined they could, in a way they hardly know how to do.
True love is not the end of your story. it is only the beginning, a glimpse of something more. If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You dont expose it to the elements. You dont make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by.
