Getting Married?

To some, marriage is like the grandest and most special day of their lives..some even (mostly girls) dream of this day ever since they were young. It's like they know they were meant to do and be part of it. So what is marriage exactly? From some books that I've read, 'it's the union of two loving souls' but from my uncle's point of view, it's like hanging yourself in a tall and old mango tree only that you don't die after the rope chokes you around the neck...you die after the rope multiplies,wraps your whole body and cut your jugular veins until you have nothing to bleed.. Why is he so bitter? go figure!

It really isn't that horrifying..it's not even that agonizing, according to my cousin's favorite television soap. From what I see, actors and actresses make great effort in making it look and feel like every union is a match made in heaven, that no matter what happens, even though you do not have money to buy your aching tummies bread for the day, you'll get through it as long as you stay together.awwww!! so romantic.. but is that real? does love really take the physical pain away?

After contemplating and daydreaming of possible scenarios, all that I can say about marriage is that, it's a big deal, yeah, it maybe scary but it can be exciting and fun too.. Just as long as you have the right and complete essential tools, you have the money to settle down, you own your own house and most of all... well, the most important thing of all, you have to have the right person beside you to walk through the aisle of life with.. and make it sure that he or she is the 'one' not because she's pretty, not because he's rich.. but because you understand each other and that is all that matters.
