Sometimes, we don't always do a post on wedding features or suppliers or concepts. Sometimes, we take a step back and dwell on the core of the whole hullabaloo -- that thing called marriage. So, the question is, are you really really really ready for this?
To start with, we do not claim to be marriage experts. It's just that being married in all, we find that it helps to know that you are practically in the same boat as most couples out there. That we are not alone in this roller coaster ride called marriage. That and there's this article trending in Facebook entitled:
With tons of marriage advice articles out there, this one stood out. Because it's real. Because we're all just human at the end of the day. Because not all fights means you are in a crumbling marriage.
You see, with the glitz and glamor and cheesy photos depicted on wedding photos (or getty images for that matter), you never really get to capture the other side. That other side that helps couple grow wiser and stronger. Nope, you don't see that in photos. And oftentimes, we are bombarded with the perfect couple photos that one small fight and we feel like we are failures.
So what is the secret? Let us tell you this. It can get ugly sometimes. Over small things like towels on the floor. Or toilet seats. Or blanket hogging. And it's okay as long as you commit to sticking together through anything, then go ahead and make epic battles.
Then kiss and makeup after, which is the fun part!

The Elevator Fight
I have long forgotten what we fought about but my favorite story is this one battle inside an elevator. It was just the two of us and I was hanging on to my usual weapon called the silent treatment. It drives my husband crazy. Specially because he wants to talk. And in exasperation he decides to pick his weapon of choice -- walking out. So he presses a floor to exit from the elevator. But we're already moving up and it passes by the floor he just pressed. He literally presses almost all of the buttons but the door wouldn't open. The damn elevator wouldn't let him do a proper walk out! I try my best to stifle my laughter. Then he looks at me and we both burst out laughing. I was laughing so hard I was crying! Silly fools! And just like that, we were okay. I hold on to that moment as a reminder that we'll do just fine.
And you know what? You guys out there will do just as fine. Just fine.
