Winter’s Night


She holds my hand and we step into a moment of our own. Nothing else matters, you share everything regardless of what type of emotion is being ingested at that given time. I feel that way about my wife and that is probably why I married her right? Makes sense. Someone at work asked me a question the other night about marriage and I said β€œto me it is simple, you marry for love and for shared moments. The promise of future moments and because that person makes you happy.” If you marry the prettiest girl you can find there is an issue with that strategy. Time catches up to everything, even beauty and then what are you left with? You better hope there was some personality beneath all that makeup.

    I wonder if ever women would stop being measured just by the outer standards of beauty set by the skewed parameters from some cosmetic conglomerates for commercial gain! It’s just sad at times…

  3. That was actually pretty good…

    I can’t exactly relate that well because I haven’t been married but it’s something to think about.

    I kinda wonder if I’ll ever get married though. People keep telling me to but I find the idea laughable now that I’m 26 and still a bachelor. Oh well. that’s life and love for ya.

    You win some you lose some!

    Beautiful! I’m not sure how many understand that marriage can’t be selfish but must be giving of oneself. Love ? πŸ™‚ While I want to be happy, I should want my partner to be happy. Oh, dear….emotions… πŸ˜€

    Plus everything Suz said.

    Your answer to the question asked of you is great! I also liked the comment that another person made about marrying quickly can sometimes mean you are repenting slowly—very true. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt as they say. Married for close to 31 years–repented for probably 28 of those years! how dumb is that?

  8. suzjones says:

    Agreed. You marry someone you would count as your best friend. Who will stick by you no matter what is going on. Who would go in ‘to bat’ for you and stick up for your rights. A person who is not afraid to tell you when you are not being on your best behaviour. A person is happy to wake up beside you knowing that you have morning breath and your hair is sticking out all over the place. It’s a special person that you choose to spend your life with and often marriage in haste really does mean that you repent at leisure.

    I couldn’t agree more. Looks fade, so you better make sure there’s something good underneath them. I recently wrote a post about how people get away with things simply because of their beauty – https://mewhoami.wordpress.com/2014/01/27/does-beauty-permit-bad-behavior/ Sadly, many people seek after looks and seem to ignore the wickedness that’s sometimes lurking below the surface. It’s great that you found a good woman with a good personality, looks and all.

  10. Very smart (fur a human)!! (purrs)….

    I agree it’s all about the connection and the support.
