Trust

tot week 18

In life sometimes a slight drizzle can obscure one’s vision but what is more important is a fact that in this journey mere feeling of suspicion could also result in parting of ways.

I never wanted my younger sister to repeat the mistake and today when she got married, she asked my advice and I replied

“Remember if ever there’s a key to successful marriage then it’s only trust..”

It’s still okay

Reading a letter

Dearest Ava,

This is a cold winter day and while my fingers are busy in writing, my mind is strolling in that street.The cloudy sky of that evening is still fresh in my mind.

I and you, we were just two there. That was the last day of our university and while walking on that street, I had said that no matter what I would never get married and you in your calm voice had replied that sooner or later I would change my perception and here I confess that I was wrong.

I agree that marriage is the most beautiful relationship and never before I had imagined that life could be so full of colors.

Sharp and bright, soft and light this is now how I defines life and when everyone complains that December sun is getting lazy, I believe #it’sStillOkay.

Happy wedding anniversary to my beautiful wife

Pride and Prejudice

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE

Once, the guests were supposed to come. All day long my mother continued to give us instructions. I remember she asked us to behave properly and said, “Always remember that first impression is the last impression!”.

She was right at that time but I guess it’s not always true.

I have just finished reading “Pride and Prejudice” and I’m still rambling in the shrubs of Longbourn. Marriage and the difference between reality and appearance are the major themes present in the novel.  I really admire the character of Elizabeth Benet. She was not a charming girl, yet her keen intelligence and lively nature make her a popular heroine of classic literature.

It so happen that the black clouds of pride and prejudice obscures the vision of Elizabeth and Darcy. They both misjudged each other. Thus, their wrong judgment and false precision at their first meeting, provide basis for the development of novel.

Jane Austen gives us several examples of good and bad marriages here. She gives us an example of bad marriage and tells us that passion and love at first sight often prove fatal for the relationship of marriage. I love the way in which Elizabeth and Darcy accept the fact that they both love each other. It was a gradual process which also enables them to get rid of their attitude of pride and prejudice.

Unlike, the passionate desire of love which blinds Lydia and unlike the only want of economic relief which Charlotte seeks in her marriage, Elizabeth looks for an honest man.

Reading the novel was a great experience. It makes me to think upon this topic and I came to conclusion that trust, honesty and wisdom provide firm basis for the successful relationship of marriage. I believe that first impression is not always the last impression. Human nature is quite complex and our first impression about someone can mislead us. The pure relationship of marriage requires trust and honesty and the love bond between Elizabeth and Darcy beautifully depicts this message.

I love Elizabeth Benet. She’s not naive rather she’s bold in expressing her feelings. Have you read this novel? What is your perception about the successful marriage?
