T is for Traditions in Marriage

55 Fiction

He didn’t like her idea. He felt it was restrictive and obligatory!

But she could foresee the future.

He cribbed and protested at every given opportunity.

But she smiled through it all.

And then, though it was not magic, but he could feel it too…

…the bond that deepened because of their daily dinner together!

A Word to the Wise

At the core, what rituals do is, they give you a sense of history, predictability, playfulness or something to look forward to. – Dr. Carol Bruess

  1. Beautifully said Shilpa. Simple acts add more meaning to a lovely relationship. They help us get over small quarrels too…Each day S calls me during lunch and when he is held up for some reason, either of us make it a point to text. It never fails to make me smile.

  2. I almost wrote R for Ritual this time then changed my mind 🙂 This is so beautiful, Shilpa. We underestimate the value of our relationships and our apparently trivial rituals on a daily basis. What a simple way you have driven it home. 🙂

  3. I believe in having at least one meal together as a family. But yes, many days this won’t be possible. But now, with nuclear families, this is sadly a long forgotten tradition.

  4. A family that plays together, eats together, stays together. My dad believed in this and we all ate together, trying to follow in his footsteps now with my family. Lovely post.

  5. Shilpa,

    It is only in the fag end of life when one is down the memory lane that one realizes the importance of such romantic traditions which keep marriage fresh all the time.

    Take care

  6. It’s fun creating traditions with loved ones. My hubby and I take a bath together nearly every evening before dinner. We catch up on each other’s day and our little tradition is to wash each other’s feet!
