It hasn’t really been the best of days for me but I am lucky that I have someone to be comforted by in such days. There is something to be said about relationships we create and the importance of it that just can’t be put into words no matter how much you try, but we all still do try.
I used to think such thinking was meaningless that it was all a religious and capitalist propaganda to keep us busy in our lives, so we don’t think on the holes in the system. They use it, for their reasons but it has never been their to create. Yes marriage and wedding is a huge market, but you cannot say that it is so and than fuel the other markets that cater to a single lifestyle. No matter what you do, you will still be part of some market one way or another.
But what I am trying to say over here is whether you decide to get married or not, it is very comforting to have that person who would always support you no matter what, given you do the same for her or him. If you truly love that person and are loved back the same, your mind would be at peace at least in this respect.
I know there would be billions of varied point of views to this argument, and all would be valid – I guess at the end it just depends on what you want. From my point of view I feel absolutely lucky to have found the most beautiful and perfect person to spend the rest of my life with. Or at least life so far.
