Holy matrimony

When two souls joined together in a holy matrimony, everything looks blissfully beautiful. Everyone is happy and we have a textbook ending - somewhat.

However, the monsters that is in SOME of us emerge when situations turn ugly and the once-blissfully married couple starts fighting and the "D" word is the only solution for the dispute. People always tell me that marriage is not all well and happy as what you see in movies. There is more to it than that. I feared being married. Then there is another batch of people who told me that yes, marriage is no easy task - but it can be beautiful if the COUPLE joined hand in hand to solve any problem they might encounter. That's what marriage is all about right? Joining hand in hand as husband and wife sailing through the sea of life. So what if you have to split 50-50 for the household expenses. You stay in the same house, eat the same food, sleep on the same bed. Why not 50-50? I may be single, you say but that does not mean I don't think. I have to admit that I may not be an expert when it comes to matters of the heart but I am not afraid to learn. (What's there to lose when you ask for help? NOTHING!)

I pray that when I do get married, my life partner and I will always be together forever - come what may. Just like Mak and Bapa. My parents raised us TOGETHER despite all the times when their ship of marriage rocked so hard that they thought it was going to crash. But they pulled themselves together and held each other close till now - with us, their children. Alhamdullillah.

Thank ALLAH for guiding us to the right path of Islam and granting us patience.
