What Does Marriage Mean to You?

Some may think that when two people get married, nothing can ever break them apart. But, the truth is, a marriage certificate is not enough to maintain your relationship forever. To keep it, you must have a deep understanding and immeasurable love for your partner.

Remember, we are all humans—far from being perfect. So, expect that your partner has insecurities, mistakes, and flaws. Despite that fact, you must still be willing to choose that person daily.

Keep in mind that marriage without trials is a mere illusion. Instead of asking for a relationship with no issues, ask for strength to overcome any challenges together. Learn from Bud and Sissy’s mistakes when they let their problem break them apart.

You will not achieve a long-lasting love life if you just leave after witnessing your partner’s deepest flaw. Remember, a successful relationship requires endless forgiveness and not an ego to feed.

Hopefully, this collection reminds you that marriage is all about teamwork and never about competition. So, be happy with everything your partner achieves instead of being jealous. Share happiness and worries together!
