A Marriage Like That

So you have witnessed the debate that institution of marriage is falling apart. Lot of cynics would jabberingly ask you, why we need the institution of marriage. 😯

Here is a story that can shut them up. I stumbled upon this touching story while browsing through Hindustan Times.

If a marriage is like that, I want it. πŸ™‚ Or I am happy as I am now.

    Nishu!! Don’t say that.

    Stupid, guy was once in gulf, he could have easily had a good life with another woman. He needn’t be married to a disabled woman.

    Dat he choses not to work is a conscious decision that they made. How many people you know would sacrifice their ongoing life for your comfort? Think about it.

    Marriage Institution is falling apart or likely to because of increasing longing for freedom, independence and so on. But is that the freedom we all are looking for. Wouldn’t somebody be loosing out freedom on the ground of physical and mental security, lonelyness and many more, that they get by honoring such institution of marriage. We need to understand what Kenneth W. Phifer says,
    “The institution of marriage was begun that a man and a woman might learn how to love and, in loving, know joy; that a man and a woman might learn how to share pain and loneliness and, in sharing, know strength; that a man and woman might learn how to give and, in giving know communion. The institution of marriage was begun that a man and woman might through their joy, their strength, and their communion become creators of life itself. Marriage is a high and holy state, to be held in honor among all men and women. Marriage is a low and a common state, to be built of the stuff of daily life. Men and women are not angels, nor are they gods. Love can become hatred; joy, sorrow, marriage, divorce. But human beings are not condemned to failure.”

    @Ramesh: You seem to me walking encyclopedia of quotations. This is the third quotation I hav had from you in last two days. Yesterday you shared two quotations about democracy.

    How do you remember all of them, one befitting for each occassion. πŸ™‚

    And true, space and individuality are two reasons that threaten marriage today. But truly, I have no idea, no way of knowing actually how many marriages are happy, really happy.

    Ashish: I can understnad your marriage to geekery, books but a phone! A mere gizmo as phone. I am sure you cant be faithful to you phone. πŸ˜›

    By the way, which is this gizmo (ph) you have that inspires such commitment in you? πŸ™‚

    Well I’m ‘faithful’ to my phone for all the wrong reasons… I don’t use it to ‘phone people’. In fact I never phone anybody and usually outgoing calls are about 10 in a month…. I use it as a GPRS modem to get a net connection on my Pc [the best available here]. Also it is a great music player with quality better than an Apple iPod [I have tested!]… presenting the Sony Ericsson W550i! πŸ˜€

    Nishu: I’m not rich enough to own it. lol. And anyways I’m content with mine… I don’t think the GPhone or anyother phone for that matter would increase the internet speed… unless the service providers bring 3G! lol. πŸ™‚
