This week was full of events, both on line and in real life. After two weeks of vacation I am back to work; Mik got his phone (eventually :up: ), Pam became a MOTW :hat: , Carlos celebrates one year in My Opera :cheers: , Dirk went to meet Theresia, two of my friends got married…. These last two events made me think.
I wanted to make this post earlier but somehow I was not ready. No, I am not getting married if this is what you think, I was spending some of my time thinking about marriage and having a life with someone. I grew up in traditional surrounding, where institution of marriage was recognized as one of the main goals in everyone`s life. This and children, too, as a purpose of being in this world. Thirty or forty yers ago it was like this: young people finish their education, spend some time fooling around then chose someone to get married and have kids. Just like that. But then, somehow something goes wrong. I guess "chosing someone" part was done lighthartedly, without getting deeper into subject. It is not for month, nor for year, it is for a life time. Some may call me old fashioned and I know, I am aware that world has changed a lot since I was a kid. And to stress one more thing, I am not judging anyone. Probably 60% of my friends, both on line and in real life are divorced, some of them having 3rd marriage behind them :faint: But I like to think about marriage like this is something both parties goes into with a full awarenes and with both feet on a ground. Otherwise, someone is suffering. I have seen in some movie, one of the actors was talking to his friend explaining him that getting married is like standing on the edge of a cliff; you know you have to jump, you are just waiting for a moment to do that. And everything else is just of matter of luck. But I think we all know this is not how things are going in a real life. And then, we have a different kind of celebration 😛
I guess, we can`t be sure. You spend ten years with someone and then discover he/she was cheating bastard; or life became the same boring circle and one morning you realise you don`t want to wake up anymore with that person on the other side of the bed. Or, you realise that a choice you made was the best thing you have ever done in your life. There is no universal recipe for being happy with someone; it depends of a too many things that I could even imagine.
Coming back to that cliff and jumping from the edge…. maybe it has to do something with luck. I don`t know. I was never married before.
Now, I didn`t want everything in this post to be public. If you are not on my friends list you may comment here, if you wish. The rest of you may procede to the next, not anymore friends only post.
