Growing old together, still being in love is the most beautiful fraction of a relationship. Though it is not a miracle; it’s certainly an accomplishment that requires much dedication. The fact that whether you are with the right person holds very little significance since, it is very seldom in life that we find the ideal life partner. A great relationship is all about learning to love the person you are committed to and treasuring your better half for the rest of your life.
Witnessing an amazing transformation
Growing old together means, grasping the changes that life offer along the way; those changes may be in the form of financial, physical or social. It is also witnessing your partner embracing an amazing transformation from young and naïve in to an old and bold individual. Happiness is not a constant state of mind and true relationship involves a roller coaster ride which has its own ups and downs. Romance and intimacy to be present daily is a myth and accepting this fact and uncovering ways to revive these feelings is what a strong bond requires. Every now and then engaging in childlike activities and discovering ways to have fun in various ways without losing the sense of wonder keeps the mundane feelings away from the relationship.
While children will undoubtedly make the foundation of the marriage more solid; experiencing the whole journey of parenthood together is the essence that adds flavor to the marriage.
It is the little things that matters
It is the small gestures in life that create the biggest joys in the heart. Hence showing the love and affection you have for each other every day even in a small act can bring so many blessings in to the relationship. May it be a text message with love, a surprised gift, a bouquet of flowers or just a random hug.
Wrinkles bring wisdom in to the marriage and it is a real privilege to have someone to grow old with, to have someone to expose your vulnerabilities and finding a sense of protection in one another. Pure kindness towards each other shields the relationship from the evils in the world and being each others’ best friend throughout this journey makes the living worthwhile. It may not be a perfect journey, but a unique one that belongs only to the two of you.
Growing old together is experiencing an adventure with your best friend and what matters most is learning to enjoy the ride along the way. A true love is finding a place to call “Home” in one another, believing in each other, staying strong for each other at their worst and finally arriving at every destination in life…holding hands..Together…!
