Is marriage really a wedding
if the hearts don’t yearn for each other?
Are the customs and rituals just formalities?
Is it only for bedding?
Does this bond, then,
make any sense
or has any significance
if it is not done
with any intention
of the permanence
of the relation?
To get married for the sake of it
or to seek it as an escape
from the judgement of the people—
what sense does it make?
If the girl doesn’t feel
that she is the wife of her husband
and vice versa. If they don’t understand
and match each other’s frequency,
does the marriage, then, mean something?
Aren’t husband and wives
supposed to be lovers
or friends or more than the labels
that they get assigned with after the wedding?
As far as I am able to understand,
marriage is a beautiful bond
which is very strong.
It is more like an adventure
that the partners live together,
far from exploitation and abuse
or manipulation of any sort
and should be only filled
with love and understanding.
