Relationships

I usually scan through the newspapers in the morning while having my cuppa. The few stories that continue to linger in my mind today are not heart-stopping news like earthquakes or explosions but about relationships. It sets me thinking why some couplings are so fleeting and others can be so enduring.

By now, you must have read about how the author Salman Rushdie changes his partners like the way he changes his suits. After his divorce, he has been dating some of the most glamourous women in the world, most of them young enough to be his daughter. Doesn't matter if they love his work because they don't even talk about literature.

While Rushdie is dating with a vengeance, another celebrity couple has decided to tie the knot after a 20-year romance. Carina Lau and Tony Leung were finally married in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan yesterday in traditional Bhutanese wedding costumes. As you can imagine, it must have been a unique experience to be married in The Last Shangri-la, a land deeply steeped in tradition and beauty. Like a fairy-tale ending ...

Well, no use analysing too much about such things. When you put two people together, there are lots of stuff to deal with - chemistry, emotions, logic, compatibililty, tolerance and understanding. Oh yah, the maturity level plays a large part too.

Whatever it is, I wish you all a fairy-tale ending.

It all boils down to how two people can compromise in a marriage cos like you said, there's lots of stuff to deal with. We're all different no matter how much you may love your partner.

I can't say much on this since our marriage is still so young, but I SURE hope we'll fight till our death to make it work!!! :-))))

I somehow understand the literature bit...I used to think that when you have too many things in common it could be boring but I am not so sure about that anymore. Anyway, the thing is that somehow I believe that it is understandable.
