Marriage is Hard Work

Sherlly Wu

I always love this phrases “Marriage is Hard Work”. Is very true, right… marriage is very very hard work full of effort we put in marriage life. Full up and down, sad, dissappointed, confuse, happy, mix together in one big bowl. It doesn’t come easy.

What does a marriage means? Some people say it is a status, some will say it is a process, some also say they will only get married when they are pregnant. Whatever the answer that is going to be, I am sure not all understand the true meaning of marriage.

The fact is marriage is a lifetime commitment. It takes two people to make the love perfect. Two lovestruck people get married because of their deep love and admiration, but when both are unable to deal with each other’s weaknesses, they will find their marriage very hard to maintain. The fact is before when both get married, many underlying issues such as living style, habits may not be known to the partner before hand and when reality sets in, they find it hard to accept the fact of being like this. Do you agree with my statement above ?

Hence, in order to make the marriage better, we have to put in time and effort to understand each other. It is when of you are able to withstand through the test of time, your relationship will turn stronger and it is because of all these beautiful imperfections in life, it makes your marriage special and different.

Marriage is again all about hard work because you need to learn how to compromise with each other. Learning the art of give and take in a relationship is not a day thing to understand too. We also learn to accept, respect and trust in each other. The key to a successful marriage should comprise of all these.

I write it to inspiring my self. Even tough how hard is our marriage, but there’s someone keep fighting for me and always be there for me and never give up of me. Yes, he is my husband. He is the one who can make my life so colorful. With all his weakness and strongness.

I will hard work to be together, share my joy and sorrow with my spouse. Our love will blossom with hard work. There are ways to bring back Happiness into Our marriage even if our marriage has hit the rock path. I believe in this! Keep on Fighting.
