Lately one of my very close college friends got engaged. With all those ‘weddings’ and ‘marriages’ around me, having been into romantic relationships just in order to intend to get married, and having lost’em too, I come to a quote which is most near to what I could comprehend as my definition of Marriage.
” We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet… I mean, what does any of them mean?? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things… all of it, all of the time, every day. You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness’.” – Shall we dance.
Never been able to think beyond these lines as yet. Maybe because after all the jazz and these lines being the only one that make sense to me, and I have come across only one person who’d stand by this !
