Marriage Blues

Marriage Blues

Marriage is give and take. You’d better give it to her or she’ll take it anyway. Joey Adams

1.They lived happily until they got married

2.I asked my wife what she wanted for Christmas.She said to me “nothing would make her happier than a diamond necklace “So I bought her nothing.

3.Marriage is like a public toilet.Those waiting outside are desperate to get in.Those inside are desperate to get out. Stephanie Robinson

4.A good wife always forgives her husband when she’s wrong. Milton Berle

5.Women marry because they believe that he will change one day. Men marry because they believe she’ll never change. Both are mistaken.

6.The best way to remember your wife’s birthday is to forget it once.

7.You should argue with your wife only when she’s not around.

8.A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

9.Love is blind, only marriage opens your eyes.

10.There are 2 times when a man doesn’t understand a woman – before marriage and after marriage.

11.A little boy asked his father, “Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?” Father replied, “I don’t know son, I’m still paying.”

12.The secret of a happy marriage remains a secret.
Henny Youngman

13.Marriage is the main reason for divorce.

Ok my friends,the point I would like to ask is, why most of  these humor are one sided ?

Thank you

Friendship vs Love…which triumps ?


It’s 2.2 minute read

“Sometimes,in life there really are bonds formed that can never be broken.

Sometimes you really can find that one person who will stand by you no matter what.

May be you will find it in a spouse and celebrate it with your dream wedding.

But there’s also the chance that the person you can count on for a life time, the person who knows you sometimes better than you know yourself, is the same person who’s been standing beside you all along”.      Bride wars

Let us see who triumphs at the end.


L is the 12 th letter of alphabets

O is the 15 th letter of alphabets

V is the 22 nd letter of alphabets

E is the 05 th  letter  of alphabets

Total of Love is = 54.


F is the 06 th letter of alphabets

R is the 18 th letter of alphabets

I is the 09 th letter of alphabets

E is the 05 th letter of alphabets

N is the 14 th letter of alphabets

D is the 04 th letter of alphabets

S is the 19 th letter of alphabets

H is the 08 th letter of alphabets

I is the   09 th letter of alphabets

P is the 16 th letter of alphabets

Total of Friendship is = 108

Exactly twice of 54

So the FRIENDSHIP is twice the value of LOVE.

Do you agree ??

Now time for some fun

One day Love met Friendship.Love asked,why did you exist when I already exist?

Friendship put a smile where you’ve left tears.


“There are friends,there is family,And then there are friends that become family.”

Husband and wife, household chores: who should do what? By Ngobesing Suh Romanus

On Saturday, March, 2, 2019,
I had a lengthy but very enjoyable conversation
It followed a post she  wrote:
How to keep your man.
I believe you will enjoy our chat.
I encourage you to read it. Click this link above.
She put this question to me:
"You know there’s something that
Some women would like to know.
I've been  thinking that too.
I believe a man should be a companion
to his wife and  not a master.
He shouldn’t dominate.
And there are times when
a man  comes home
and expects certain things
from his wife like
to always have  food on the table
whether or not she has been out
all day trying to make  ends meet.
And shes so tired and still he expects her
to clean up the  house, cook, do the laundry
and if they have kids, take care of them.
He  feels it’s her duty, her responsibility.
Do you think cooking should be  a duty for the wife?
Or taking care of the house?
Do you think there is  anything wrong
with sharing the home chores?"
What is your response to this question?

What I can say is, spouses
should be equal partners
and it is a good thing to share the chores.
But couples should always take into consideration
the fact that men and women are different physically, emotionally and in abilities and talents.
Men can do certain things better than women;
And women can do certain things better than men;
There are roles as defined by society that fit men better.
Others that fit women better.
We have different cultures in different parts of the world. People are too attached to their culture. Hence, it is important to take change gradually when it is contrary to culture. When women from a culture which gives men advantages want to overturn things abruptly, they run into trouble with their husbands. Use tact and love to get change not force.
Husbands and wives should also attend marriage courses together. A good one is a Marriage Encounter Week End. Through many presentations and a gradual process, couples are brought to see the real meaning of marriage and journeying together as a couple not servant/ master relationship.
If you read this and have any questions, I will be very happy to answer them.
I thank Zee Yola for her post and raising the questions she raised.
Read How to keep your man.

An ideal couple

If you are married,
Try to be
An ideal couple;
An ideal husband and wife;
An ideal man and woman;
What do you expect
To find in
An ideal married couple?
Love tops the list;
Where there is love,
There is trust;
There’s fidelity;
There’s self giving;
And there’s oneness.
And they can’t have
All these qualities
Unless they are God-loving;
And prayerful;
God is at the center
Of their marriage;
The binding force;
That cements them together;
To be no longer two,
But one.
An ideal couple,
Is an inspiration
To other couples;
And non couples.
Their love radiates;
And lights up
The whole world around
An ideal couple
Is a role model.

Poem n.6 from 100 poems for my sweetheart

You are my perfect darling;
The darling of my life;
Your eyes!
Never seen such eyes before;
Where did you get them?
If you stare at me
From morning till bedtime,
I will not get tired
Of seeing you;
And your lips;
Are they laced with gold?
Or sugar?
Nothing has ever tasted
So sweet,
Not glittered so brightly;
Can you guess how I feel
Knowing that you are all mine?
It’s hard for anyone to guess;
With you as mine,
All is perfect;
You are the perfect darling;
The darling of my life.

Poem n. 4 from 100 poems for my sweetheart

So dearly I love you;
Your glittering eyes
Shining brighter than
The sun,
Do speak volumes of
Our love;
The glance you cast me
Daily before you leave
For work,
Is meant to fill my day
With love,
That, I know;
But that’s not what it
Instead it gives thirst
For you so strong,
I do poorly breathe;
It’s a strong love
That is eating away
My heart for you.
I can say this a thousand
And more times.
I love you so dearly.

100 love poems to my sweetheart no. 3


Hello, my sweetest!
Where do we go
For quality time tonight?
Where I shall be alone
With you?
Do you remember our last
Quality time?
When we spent many hours
All left to ourselves?
That is a day
I will never forget;
A day I will remember
All my life;
That day,
I not only felt your love,
I could touch it;
When I pressed you to me.
I want us to experience
That again tonight;
Tell me:
When shall that be?
And where do we go?
You decide for us.

100 love poems to my sweetheart no 1

Apple of my eyes;
When I look at you,
And know you are mine;
And all mine;
That you are all for me;
That we are for each other;
That I will live with you
Till death do us part,
I am ecstatic;
I cannot measure
The temperature of my joy;
My joy tank overflows;
You are the one
I have always wanted;
You are God’s best gift
To me;
I love you more than
Words can express;
I want to have you
Even in the next world;
The Love that burns
In my heart
For you will never die.

Who has noticed What I have noticed about many couples?

Have you noticed what I have noticed about many couples?

I have noticed that before marriage, the boy and a girl hardly become tired of each other’s company. They can sit together for hours chatting. They love to listen to each other. Their dream is a life together for ever.

After marriage, it does not take very long, the same person whose company was so precious is like not wanted again; the voice that was so melodious and you wanted to hear all the time becomes boring. In bed when you start to chat before long your spouse is snoring leaving you feeling lonely, unloved and frustrated.

Have you noticed this?

This is destroying many marriages.

But what must you do?

Three things are enough.

  1. Accommodate: Accommodate your spouse. Accept all that you will discover in your spouse that you never expected to find there; after all, that is how almost all marriages are. High romance before and disillusionment after marriage.
  2. Whether you marry A or B or C, you will find that not everything will continue to shine and glitter as you found it before you got married. You must accommodate.
  3. Learn how to keep that glow in your marriage; how to keep that fire of love in you burning. Continue to sharpen your cutlass. Don’t expect it to remain sharp or to just keep burning without your fanning it. Fan the flame.
  4. If you are a Christian couple remember that you are three in your marriage which is a triangle. Christ is sitting at the top watching and ready to come in and help, and husband and wife are at the other two angles. Go to him. He will help.
  5. Make an effort. You do not climb a mountain with folded arms. Fight (positively) for your marriage. Some people neglect this point because they think that they will find a better spouse if they break up. Lies. You may end in a more frustrating situation.
  6. Once you are married put in your head once and for all that it’s for life.
  7. Know that those beautiful or melodic voices that you hear will become boring the same way if you jump fence and go to them.

Happy marriage! May the fire of your love keep burning!

Marriage is ordained by God

A marriage ceremony is such
A sweet occasion;
When husband and wife
See nothing but happiness
When they feel like one
And hope to be one forever.
Marriage is a union ordained by God;
And made for enjoyment
Of husband and wife;
Our prayers for
All the couples of the world;
Grant O Lord,
That married couples
May find joy in each other!
