V is for Vision

My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Marriage from A to Z in 55 Words. V is for sharing common Vision, Values and Life Paths in Marriage!

V is for Common Vision in Marriage

55 Fiction

She daydreamed about it. He had nightmares.

She felt it would change their lives. He wouldn’t change it for the world.

She tried anger and reasoning.

He remained adamant and stuck to his guns.

Despite love for each other, they had an elephant in the room.

She wanted to have a child and he didn’t!

A Word to the Wise

A common vision can unite people of very different temperaments.― Timothy Keller

The goal in marriage is not to think alike, but to think together

  1. I love that advice, not to think alike but to think together. My husband and I often don’t see eye to eye but we generally end up thinking together eventually. Great post. You are really rocking this A-Z!

  2. That IS a big decision – and hard if they don’t agree … Well built up, Shilpa:-) The advise is great though – to think together but not necessarily alike..:-)

  3. This one is a particularly tough decision, having kids part. But I know you’re concentrating on United Visions in general. It is often difficult to see exactly what the other person sees. For this V to be effective, the U also has to be strong. In that case, a united vision becomes easier πŸ™‚
    Your flashes are a gem for us πŸ™‚

  4. Definitely an issue both parties need to see eye to eye on. Unfortunately I think sometimes I think couples do discuss this before marriage but they often agree with the other partner thinking they might be able to change their partner’s mind…

  5. Great post!!
    It is critical that, before they marry each other, the husband and wife have a common vision on important foreseeable issues, and an identical vision on how to handle the situation when one or both partners genuinely change their vision on a particular issue.
    Unfortunately, in many cases, some of these issues are not discussed before marriage or they are glossed over. There are pink elephants in the room, but their existence is either not known or not acknowledged.

  6. This an important decision and both the husband wife need to discuss this patiently and try to understand if any has a difft view point! Again a wise 55er Shilpa!
