THE MARITAL BLISS; ‘A DREAM OR DILEMMA’
A handsome prince on a white horse wearing fine shining amour held her hands and took her along with him for eternity. She had an everlasting blissful smile on her face. When she opened her eyes she was still in her bed and she realized it was a mere dream. Every girl imagines flowery, fanciful and enchanted dreams of finding the prince charming of their lives which might come true as in the fairy tales, yet the reality is quite a contrast.
Every girl dreams of having a perfect man and a charmed life which is not possible on realistic and rational grounds. The society is also responsible of such upbringing of girls in which they desire to have the best marital time or more of a LALA land. Even with the era of modernization and feminist movements women still continue to be the beholder of the sacrosanct marital dream.
When it comes to relationships especially the marital affairs it is not an easy job as someone said marriage is not a word it’s a sentence. But the satire is that when you jump in the poker game of marriage there is no going back even if you are the best of the players.
On the other hand men have a self styled façade on them, even how welcoming they might seem are never the same when they get into a relationship of intimacy with a girl. In our society, generally the prerequisites of men for a wife are much more flowery then the girls requirement for husbands. And men want beauty and brains and several other attributes to be catered while girls are always on the compromising end and always face the worst of it.
Since centuries men and women have eaten the forbidden fruit of marriage sometimes on choice and sometimes on demands of society, religion, cultures etc. The marital ideals of girls are always conversed in every part of world and millions of literature have been written on this subject yet there is no obvious change in the thinking of mankind at large especially women.
Whatsoever every time a new juvenile prey (girl) is on the verge of changing her life forever with masculine set of ideals with the most gleeful desires of futures true bliss.
