Marriage vs dating
Is matrimony the golden ticket to a lifetime of great sex, meaningful conversations and a lifetime of blissful love? Most single people rush into it with the notion that this is how it’s going to be. But those who are mired in marriage know that once the hormone-induced endorphine wears off, marriage is pretty much your same old boring life. Only now, there’s another person to crowd you and take your space on the couch.
Someone once said, “You know you’re really married when you quit holding your farts and burps in.᾿ Audible gas or not, most people agree that marriage is more challenging than dating.
Your perfect partner could be online right now...
What are you looking for?
When dating, everyone usually paints a picture of how marriage life will be… your spouse running about the house in lingerie, your man bringing you breakfast in bed…, your well mannered imaginary kids, family days out. And you definitely can’t forget the usual sending kids off to a friend’s place just to have quality time. I know the picture I have in mind… totally superficial.
Having seen my parents around each other, it’s like suddenly, they are brother and sister. It’s even hard to fathom that there was once all cuddly. Ever gone home and tried so hard to hear if your parents still have sex? Well someone told me that once you get married, the chemistry suddenly vanishes and all that is left is just care… no love.
Some woman said “whenever I talk about the truths of marriage, the married women in the audience all nod their heads and smile, but the singles tend to think I’m some jaded middle-aged woman who didn’t do it right᾿. During the courtship, everything your spouse says is funny… work woes and kooky relatives are all part of the fascination. But do you think those stories remain fascinating after 3 years of hearing same ol’ shit? So what if someone was to track us down 10 years from now? Will we single people be thinking the same?
Well apparently that’s marriage for you. The exciting things always fade, but the kinda boring stuff you don’t give much thought to, turn out to be really important. So what changes?
