Happy marriages do not focus overly on the differences created by background or where the two people are coming from but on where the two are going…as committed couple. If the two people can be united in their vision and work towards it, nothing should be insurmountable. Vision, commitment and a solid sense of purpose is what drives happy marriages.
One day we all will get the chance to tell our stories and be a source of hope and inspiration to many.
We will tell them about how rough the road was and that not all happy endings had a happy start. We will tell them what kept us going in the face of adversity and how our many adversities prepared us and shaped us into who we have become and how in solemn reflection we would wish we never had it any other way.
We will tell them how their perceptions and presumptions of our today are flawed by them not knowing of our yesteryears. We will tell them how much more they will see us in a different light and come to appreciate us if only they will be patient enough to read the whole book and not just the summary of our lives.
Till then, we bear no greater agony than the scattered misrepresentations they have given our lives…our untold stories!
“What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are but how you deal with incompatibility”.
~~Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy
