Married Life, Lightening And Thunder, The Mother Of All Storms
Just like any and most storms on the horizon of life, married life is a given.
Yes Siree Bob…the sunny days of a healthy and happy relationship can give way to the thunder and lightening of up drafts and down drafts that can one minute hide the sparks of matrimony and in the next, open the very same floodgates of varying emotions.
Like lightening and thunder: you can see when it is coming…and…you feel it when it when you don’t.
The weather patterns of day to day living are pretty much the same as that of a successful or not so successful marriage. You see when you compare the two, the periods of whatever activity is happening in your life can be matched to the unintended conditions of your environment. Take for example when it’s raining, you are probably no doubt in somewhat of a wet or at least a damp mood. Whereas, weather wise, if the sun is shinning, you are probably kicking up your heels with joy and exclamation.
Marriage tends to run the gamut of emotions and weather related patterns in our lives and we can chart the ebb and flow just like the monthly paycheck and carrying a rain coat. It’s not that unpredictable when it comes to how, when and where our emotions get the best of us. Good days – feeling good. Dark and cloudy days – feeling not so good.
So what is the answer you ask. Pack up and move to Hawaii?
You know as well as I do…that just is not going to happen (at least anytime soon…but I am working on it!)
But just like the thunder and lightening in our daily lives, our married lives can come equipped with certain protections that can make our day. If we have good (sunny) days, we tend to uncover, release a wealth of happiness to all around us. If we tend to get depressed by dark (cloudy/stormy) days, we want our significant other to know that we are hurting and need their comfort. We want to see when the bad stuff is coming and not have to feel it when we don’t see it coming.
What is a marriage, and especially a successful marriage, can best be described as the Mother of all storms!
No No No….it is not fighting or arguing or any of that silly goofy disagreeing stuff…married life runs the range of emotional weather patterns that best defines the make up of your success in health, wealth and happiness.
Just remember guys: “Happy Wife…Happy Life”.
Now all I need is a good weather analogy for women towards men. Hmmmmm….
I’ll let you ponder that one for yourself. Let me know what you come up with. As they say, good luck with that!
You will no doubt make it as a success in your marriage as long as you don’t go running down the fairway of love and romance carrying a long shiny pointy metal thing that will surely attract the lightening of your spouse. And by the way…posturing with rumbles of thunder as you try to get your way will get you nowhere quick too!
Just like the weather, thunder and lightening, good and/or bad, marriage is a compromise…and the best umbrella you have for a rainy day or your favorite hat to shade you on a hot sunny day … is the person you committed to for better or worse, for richer or poorer…hum along if you know the words.
