Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.
When you look for the right person, you always end up with the wrong one. But when you just sit by the corner and wait, that person comes along and shares the corner with you.
One day, in your search for happiness, you discover a partner by your side, and you realize that your happiness is the one that brought this person.
When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. You know when you have found your love, because you not only have a smile on your face. You have it in your heart as well.
A marriage is not a noun; it’s a verb. It isn’t something you get. It’s the way you love your partner everyday. Successful weddings require falling in love many times, always with the same person.
I think a lot of people get so obsessed with their wedding, at the expense of the wedding itself, that they miss out on what the real purpose is. It’s not about a production number. It’s about a meaningful moment between two people, witnessed by people, they really know and care about.
The real act of marriage takes place in the heart. Not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It’s a choice you make. Not just on your wedding day, but over and over again. And that choice reflects in the way you treat your husband or wife.
Getting married, for me, was the best thing I ever did. I was suddenly beset with an immense sense of release. That we have something more important than our separate selves, and that is the marriage. There is immense happiness that can come from working towards that.
