My cousin will be engaged next week. She is actually struggling about making this marriage to happen for a while. I don't really know what's her concerns, but I know there are concerns, because after all, marriage for a woman is a huge thing, she gives her life to a man, and another family. Her life will be totally changed from that moment.
Thus, how do you know if you are ready for all of this? I cannot imagine how a woman can be so ready to marry a guy when it comes to reality.
What I can think now is "faith". A faith to believe that you are making a right choice which will bring you "happy forever", because seriously, nothing can guarantee for your future; not yourself, not your husband, not your parents, not anyone, or anything.
Once, I told an old friend of mine who was going to marry. I told him "do not abuse the love your fiancee is giving to you, because she is the one who gives everything to you". Why? Because we only see how much that girl adores our friend, but we don't see our friend treasure her.
Of course, everything happens for a reason. There must be some connection which we don't see, or don't understand.
Anyways, I hope my cousin will have a happy life as she expects.
"Keep the faith!"
