Marriage is tough..

I was the sort that made plans.. and planned on not failing.

No room for mistakes or curve balls.. Even if there was a curve ball thrown at me, I would make that curve ball fly straight..lol. Everything (or at least 90%) on my checklist must be checked. Very stressful, I know.. but that’s the purpose of a plan, no?

On the other hand, Blueberry is my complete opposite. He lives life with minimal planning and goes with the flow (or curves with the ball).. He calls it expectation management, I call it- a disaster.

Our differences drove us mad. We fought.. We made up. Then we fought some more.

Eventually, we got tired of the fighting.. We decided to compromise; find a common ground where we could both work on.

He agreed on better planning and checklists.. and I agreed to detour and curve with the ball, when the need arises.

Falling in love is easy.

Staying in love requires courage, communication, care, compromise.. and the list goes on. Goodness, marriage is tough!

When the efforts result in love and harmony, everything sown in is worth it.

    Insightful set of words. Every relationship takes work as each of us are our own individuals. Good to hear that the two of you have talked it out. Communication is always key to keep the love going. Also, none of us are perfect and the sooner we realise that and accept that, the better we will all get along 🙂

        It didn’t scare me. I’m just glad that someone writes this kind of thing, you know, a reminder that we surely find problem in marriage but we can always try to solve it.
