Marriage

When You Marry A Woman …….

   

When you marry a woman

You marry the little girl she used to be

The girl with a sense of fun

The girl with a penchant for mischief

The little girl who had dreams of Prince Charming

The little girl who had no restrictions in her imagination

The girl whose love was pure and innocent

The girl whose eyes sparkled like stars

The girl who played with her mum’s make up and trinkets

The girl who couldn’t wait to grow older

Whose cute dimples, belied the confidence beneath the exterior

When you marry a woman

You marry the teenager she used to be

The one who was curious about life and everything

The one who formed her opinions, and changed them again

The one who wrestled with expectations and priorities

The one who tested the boundaries

The one who struggled and started making mistakes

As she started discovering who she really was

Physically, mentally, emotionally and socially

While trying to balance what others expected her to be.

When you marry a woman

You marry her in the prime of her youth

When her beauty is radiant

When her curves are supple and appealing

And she bears your children

You marry a woman with strengths and weaknesses

You marry a friend who has your back

You marry someone who will build with you

With her strength and courage

You marry someone who is increasingly confident about her abilities

Even as she worries whether she is doing a good job

Being a wife, mother, daughter and friend

When you marry a woman

You marry the person she will become

In her later years, her lessons learnt

Even though her outward beauty will fade

But her inner spirit remains radiant

Maturing everyday like fine wine

She has gathered experience over the years

She has learnt to temper her words with wisdom

She has learnt to take the thorns with the roses

She has learnt to pick her battles

And she has rearranged her priorities


When you marry a woman

You discover more about her everyday

Because she is always evolving

Time passes, and the seasons change

But you will always learn something new about her

She will never stop amazing you

She is woman

    It seems that you have put plenty of effort and exhausting work into your post and I require rather more of these on the web in current times. I sincerely acquired a kick out of your post. I don’t really have significantly to say responding, I only wanted to comment to reply superb work.

    This would be the wonderful weblog for anybody who needs to seek out out about this subject. You acknowledge quite a bit its virtually arduous to argue with you (not that I severely would want…HaHa)!!! You actually put a model new spin on a subject thats been written about for decades. Good issues, merely good!
