L is for Love in Marriage

55 Fiction

‘Why are you buying those herbs when you will never use them?’, she asked with irritation.

‘Can I do something without your nagging, please’, he retaliated.

‘Here we go, again’, she muttered.

‘I didn’t hear that’, he said sarcastically.

Amidst giving cold shoulder to each other, he held her hand as they crossed the street.

A Word to the Wise

I love you. Not despite your flaws, but because of them. Your flaws make you, you. And I love all you not, just the good bits. – Christopher Donovan Rowell

  1. What a way to love, truly, Shilpa πŸ™‚ To love because of the flaws, not in spite of them. You touched my heart with that. And the image of him taking her hand, even after a squabble. Sigh…

  2. Not the direction I was expecting the piece to take, but I like it. Very true to life. Everything isn’t perfect all the time, but that doesn’t mean the feelings aren’t still there.

  3. Exactly…for a love and marriage to last there must be unconditional love. No one is perfect and you must love and accept each other for who they are. Lovely post for L.β™₯

  4. A very good portrayal of real love in marriage, love that sustains, that bears everything, that sticks around. Loving the other not despite but because of all the flaws in the other, loving in that deep caring for the other. Very nicely done, Shilpa πŸ™‚

  5. so cute … and it is also true..in all the husband wife relationships I have seen till now, this is the most beautiful part… its not about never fighting … but about always sticking together in all situations that keeps the boat floating

  6. Shilpa,

    Read 2 posts now. Very sensible advice in previous one. We have been following many of those. Love is to accept partner as he or she is without demanding him or her to change while making all efforts to overcome own weak points.

    Take care

  7. Each and every post here is amazing Shilpa! I just smile and wonder yes this is how couples are, this is what happens exactly. This is truth with no fairy tale stuff and reality is lovely and interesting even though painful at times….
