Marriage Differences

Quotes on Love: Love until it hurts. Real love is always painful and hurts; then it is real and pure.- Mother Teresa

It is really heartbreaking whenever couples argue for many reasons, usually for differences. I admit, I am one of those wives who sometimes want to give up whenever I have those petty quarrels with my husband. We are different in many ways. Aside from being opposite in physical aspects (he is big and chubby and I am petite and skinny), we are totally opposite when it comes to personality. He is an outgoing person, I am an introvert type. Even on how we were brought up by our parents-I grew up with disciplinarian parents and he was not.

There is only  one thing we have in common: we love each other so much. Our differences will not break the bond our love has built. Instead of treating differences as threat in our relationship, we see it as opportunities for us to grow and thru acceptance we will see the real love for each other. It is true that when we love, we give each other the right to hurt us. Love really hurts, but through the heartaches, trials, and success in our lives, we managed to stand up and continue with our dreams and plans. As long as there is love, respect, communication, commitment and faith to God, we will love each other. And that will last forever.

As one of the famous quotes say:
A good marriage is one which allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way they express their love.

  4. I don't agree on the quote that real love is painful and it hurts. Well, Jesus' unconditional love was, when He left everything in Heaven to become a man to save us from our sins. Sure, everything that He went through here on earth was painful and that was the kind of suffering that He has to go through to show us that He loved us. But when it comes to marriage or man-woman relationship, love doesn't hurt. It heals, it comforts, it gives a sense of peace and fulfillment, and everything sweet and nice. For me, when someone is hurt in a relationship, it isn't love because love is happiness. :)
