Marriage is a tough move :)

Each time I attend a marriage ceremony an hear the vows of commitment, surrender and eternal love, I am only confused further. I cannot help but laugh at my own naivety, at a point in my life, a while back where I thought I was ready for marriage :P I then look at the faces of the bride and groom and I wish to get into that sacred knot myself. But the fear of giving myself completely unto someone then strikes me inadvertently as a sense of losing myself.

They say that guys generally tend to have this sense of relinquishing control before marriage and there are a good number of movies too that present this state of mind of men like 'Pyaar Ke Side Effects' for example :)

I can then only honestly, go hats off to these people who commit for a lifetime and wish them happiness throughout their married lives and wish that I too get somebody I could relinquish control to - unreasoned.

Love, Marriage & Happiness :) Wow !

Wishing a happy married life to a dear friends - Kannan & Himani :)

“Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are.” and marriage is another step to know who you really are. Follow me too at and place your comment too. May God bless you always.

Hi Arun, Just chanced upon your blog and am glad I did. You really write well, and I am moved by your philosophical thoughts which are very well put, and ring many bells. The marriage post - stirred many different thoughts inside me, similar to yours. :-) It's beautiful though, to find that person for whom we become so willing. It's possible that the ones taking the plunge perhaps just don't think so much :-). I think I could go on and on so I should stop. I noticed you are in AID? I used to be active here in AID-Dallas. Nice to come across a fellow-aid-er. Take care. H.

I write as a natural consequence of an innate need in me to find a canvas to present my emotions & I love to hear reasonable commentary on my works. Thanks for your comments :)
