Celebration, is often defined as a joyful occasion to mark an event. It can be either celebrations of religious events or personal events. It often marks the victory over something. So, in this post I would like to describe about an event which is so special in our life and that is MARRIAGE - A Celebration!
For most people marriage is a one time occurrence and everyone strives to make it as a very special event in their life. Marriage is often a compilation of celebrating many events before or after the wedding day. This varies from one culture to other. Instead of making marriage a customary thing, we treat it as a grand celebration. Its a grand get together for all the relatives and friends. They all gather to bestow happiness and well being to the newly wed. Such is the joy of marriage as a celebration!
Did you ever wonder why it marks for a grand celebration? It takes a lot for marriage to happen. It starts with the efforts our parents put to find the right groom/bride for us. If in case we ease their pain and find our partner, it still takes time to get the approval from both the parents. For some people it is very simple to cross this line but for few of them it takes a long struggle to get both the parties to agree for the decision. Once this is done we can say more than half of the task is done.
Then the beauty of the culture gives the Bride and Groom the special feeling for this event. For example in the Indian culture we have mehendi & sangeet ceremony, Haldi ceremony for bride and groom. In this way there are many small or big events before marriage that gives a feeling for the bride & groom that this is the special event in their life. The companionship and mutual understanding of two people that has been flowered into romance , is now going to end in the joyful union. On the marriage day, couple proclaim their love and commitment to this world and decide to begin a new life together. Marriage requires love, trust and commitment from both sides. Lets define each of these elements that play a vital role in our life.
Love is defined in many ways. Love is something which makes us see beneath the surface. It makes us to see things which other people don't. That's how we finally meet one person in our life who becomes our soul-mate. Marriage sometimes brings two people from diverse cultures , like two threads crossing in opposite direction yet weaving a tapestry. Such is the magic of marriage.
To make a relationship work it takes more than love. At this point we introduce other two elements trust and commitment. The mutual trust between the husband and wife will push them forward in the life. It makes the bonding more stronger. It takes commitment to be loyal to each other in any circumstances. It takes faith to go forward together without knowing what future holds for you both. These are all included as a part of the marriage vows. Thus the true art of marriage is in the divine journey with the inner self. Because of all this the husband and wife get the courage to face the world strongly by walking hand in hand together. Marriage is thus a commitment to life , the best that two people can find and bring out in each other.
Marriage marks a new life and new beginning. I would certainly say that marriage is a one time celebration that happens in our life and we should definitely enjoy each and every moments related to it. Since, every second we spend during this time remains in our memory forever!
