“It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

 

The fuel for endless love is endless friendship. Friends are angels who can lift our feet when our wings have forgotten to fly. When life gets you down, friend will still hold you high! Like stars true friends will always be in your life, though you can see them only sometimes, you can be sure that they are always there.

A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you!!”
― Elbert Hubbard

If you have a friend who can stand beside you when millions stand against you, then your life is a success! No matter what situations they end up in or how far apart they turn to be- they will come back to each other. Those are the people who have the little thing called fate on their side. So it is said “It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.”

Marriage is a Start with an Empty Box

Everyone says that love hurts, but that’s not true- loneliness hurts, rejection hurts and losing someone hurts. Many confuse these things with love but the reality is it is the only thing that covers up all the pain in the world with the right companion who bonds life with friendship. Most people get married believing a myth that marriages are beautiful boxes with full of all things that they have longed for; intimacy, compassion and friendship etc. But the truth is marriage is a start with an empty box, it should be filled with love, giving, serving, praising by the couples themselves. A long and unhappy marriage is not a successful marriage.

Friendship is a Lifelong Gift

At some point, you have to realize that some people cannot stay in your life but can only be in your heart. Friendship is the marriage of the soul. Friendship is the promise to marry each other if no one is there in the end; the bonding of friendship and marriage is pretty much the same. Marriage is the togetherness of three; they must be united by the love’s creator, and the two people. Marriage is the oneness of all these three together. Love is the reason, lifelong friendship is a gift, and kindness is the cause until death separates two who are united under the promise of marriage.

Marriage is Bond

Happy marriage is possible when two good forgivers decide to unite together. Real friends can put up with your worst behavior and be affectionate even when you are extremely irritable. They will believe in you even if the whole world turns against.

“The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for!!”
― Bob Marley

A life long journey with a true person is possible with the friendship that is shared. Friendship is two sided- someone doing something nice to you isn’t the only requirement, it’s like marriage- two sided.

Being there for a friend at times of need is the greatest gift you can give; similarly you should have a heart to allow them to be for you. Marriage is like close friends who are life’s treasure to each other. Sometimes, your partner may know you better than you know yourself; this is possible only by letting go off things that are not meant to be there in your life. In a relationship that is bound by marriage, trust and honesty must exist. If they don’t, there is no point for continuing the love. Stay single if you cannot afford to be honest!
