Marriage equals unconditional love

When I was young i thought that getting married is all about me always receiving and being understood. I was wrong. Marriage is a give and take relationship. It's all about loving the person unconditionally. Commiting yourself to the bond you made and promising that whenever there are problems you'll give 100% to solve it. My husband taught me the meaning of unconditional love. Everytime we have a fight, he alwyas tells me that he loved me for what I am and did not marry me to change me. I loved him more than ever for saying that.

Hi there aileen2008!I agree that Marriage is a two-way street. It teaches us how to give and take. I am really sad that some people doesn't understand that and some people try their best even when it seems that they can't to stay int he relationship and pretend to be happy just because her or his significant other is not doing their part and they are still determined to make the marriage work no matter how much sacrifice they need to make. You are lucky to have a really sweet husband.

I personally don't believe in unconditional love. There are just some things that I can not and will not tolerate. But I do agree that marriage is about love and compromise. However, it can be a bit difficult when your spouse is a completely different person than the one you fell in love with in the first place.

You are indeed a very lucky person to get that kind of a man as your husband. There are many persons around who always want to change the other person before they start loving that person. Good that your husband dosent belong to that lot. Afterall it feels good to keep staying as we are.

I have to agree. I met my husband when I was 15. We get married at age 21 and 22. We dating consistently and then got engaged. We had the wedding 1 year later. My husband has taught me so much about myself and how to be a better person. He is my life and passion. He is my best friend and my other half. Without him out team does not exist. We are a team through it all good and bad. I love him and I am gald to hear that you have a similar relationship to your husband.
