Getting MarriedWith the high divorce rate, it may seem risky to get married these days. Of course, marriage has always been a risk since we don’t know how we’ll get along with someone under the same roof, no matter how long we’ve known each other.

If you are flirting with the idea of getting hitched, assuming you have found someone with whom you share a serious relationship, you may want to consider indicators like those that follow. While there is no fool proof way to guarantee that someone is or is not ready to wed, issues like the following may help you reflect on potential problems to deal with before saying “I do.”

1. Will your financial condition contribute to a successful marriage? Although you and your intended may have agreed that you will not work for a while, or might work for fewer hours or less of a salary, money problems are at the top of the list of issues that married couples fight about. Unexpected expenses like medical bills, home and auto repairs, and recreational costs can soon have the most loving couple at each other’s throat as bulldogs more than lovers. Make a budget with your beloved and determine if both of you can live within a joint framework of shared income and expenditures. If conflicts arise, make an appointment to see a marriage counselor.

DisappointmentYou feel let down because you expected in the first place. Expectations happen only when we are secure about the relationship. There is an element of  ’taking for granted’ when there is intimacy, involved.

Disappointments happen only when there are unrealistic expectations. Just like imagination has no boundaries, expectation has no limits. Adding fuel to the fire is the fantasy fiction and celluloid drama that can fan the angst of failed expectations.

Radhika was jolted out of her reverie when Bhaskar became the ‘typical husband’. Definition of ‘typical’ being – get up, go to work, come back late and relax at home. Their typical conversation started with ‘what’s for breakfast and ended with have you paid the bills’. While she stewed being at home, he was happy outside working. Or so she thought.

Expectations in marriage‘Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus’ is oft repeated refrain whenever there is a conflict of interests in a marriage. Expectations are well… only to be expected!!! After all you expect to get married only once in your lifetime!!! But as expectations go there is bound to be disappointments. It is inevitable. We even expect them – the disappointments.

Nisha Varadarajan bride to be says, “It’s been drummed into me not to expect anything and that I should put my husband and his family first.” This is a familiar scenario and one of the reasons for bickering and dissatisfaction in a marriage. The girl morphs into a faceless identity depending on her many roles in her husband’s family.

But, looking from the man’s point of view- hey! He is equally apprehensive about living up to the expectations of his prospective wife. Nirmal Krishnan, a newly married guy says in a hassled tone, “Whatever I do is never enough for her. How does she expect me to drop all that I know and love and go behind her like a puppy?” Fie on you, Nirmal! Remember you couldn’t wipe off that silly goofy grin on your face when you got engaged!

Power of ThankfulnessThere is one sure fire medicine which cures all pain and opens the way for your greater good. It allows you to sleep well at night, wake up refreshed and filled with enthusiasm for your daily tasks and ongoing relationships. This medicine is abundantly available, has no side effects and can be taken in large or small doses regularly. You need no one to prescribe it. The more you take, the sweeter it is.

The medicine is the practice of thankfulness. Although there are endless cures for anxiety, one thing is impossible - to be upset and grateful at the same time.

When we take thankfulness on as a practice, we see that it is more than a fleeting feeling; instead it becomes a daily practice, a basic way of life. In fact, no matter what we are feeling, we can always perform deeds of thanks; actions that express our gratitude and awareness of the good we constantly receive. Actually, when we perform these actions, our feelings often turn themselves around.

Happy marriageListening to the news and reading articles in the papers I am sometimes tempted to think that the “happily ever after” concept about marriages is a thing of the past and the examples of such marriages that we see around are exemptions to the rules. But, my absolute faith that good things like happily ever marriages can be nothing but the rule led me to research the issue.

I was talking to Mr. Shayamsundar Das, who has been very happily married to his wife of 35 years. He just couldn’t stop talking about how people in “those days” got married with the idea that it is a relationship that they are forming for life. According to him, even with most marriages being love marriages (where the couple have spent quality time getting to know each other) people still leave the possibility of “things may not work out” open.
