Let's keep it simple!
Marriage has for long been considered the “sacred institution, the social permit to spend the rest of your life with your loved one”. But, if we delve deep into these deep-rooted permits, we shall be able to justify the way it has evolved over the years.
With commercialized dating apps and websites in place, it has been grossly commercialized. People feel as if they are in a market place selecting the appropriate commodity commensurate their respective sky-rocketing choices. The sanctity and respect aspect of this age-old sacred institution is gradually losing its fervor in the wake of rapid technological and mental evolution.
No-one these days believes in the myth “Until death do us part”. I believe, a minuscule part of ourselves are responsible for complicating such a pristine concept. These days, people get married with delusions of grandeur and when that delusional phase gets over, we find ourselves emotionally and mentally ravaged. What’s left behind is an emotionally complex human being that’ll take time to refurbish their faith in people for years to come.
The ostentatious display of wealth and power at wedding venues these days scale up to colossal proportion and that’s where hideous comparisons come into play. This comparison is the termite that silently eats away into any relationship eroding its essence and foundation.
We humans tend to unnecessarily complicate simple things for our own satisfaction and then blame sundry factors as the root cause of our self-created problems.
If we wipe off all the other complex factors and expectations, and start off a clean slate, things will be much easier. Personal space, mutual understanding, love and respect are the foundation stones for any long-term relationship. Let our head and heart act in coalition to sanction us the permit for a conjugal life, before society or any other person does it for us. Only then can we uncomplicate the sanctity of companionship.
