When you’re deciding to get married, one of the things that might be holding you up is holding out for a more perfect mate somewhere. Well, let me clue you into something that is harsh but true, you do need to settle to get married.
Let’s talk about it.
Reality Is Harsh But True
Reality can be harsh, but the that fact is that, in order to get married, you’re going to have to actually settle on someone. Let’s break it down into pure numbers.
There are seven billion people on the planet. I’m going to assume that half of those people are the sex that you’re looking for. So, if you were to just look at each one of those people for only one second, it would take you 111 years just to glimpse every single one of them! Most of them would be dead; YOU would be dead by the time that was done, so obviously that won’t work.
If you have it in your head, “I’m not going to get married because there’s plenty of other fish in the sea. I’m not ready to land yet or bring my boat to the shore,” or whatever kind of nonsense cliche you want to choose, then you shouldn’t even be reading this post. You should go and get fishing (or doing whatever it is you do) because it doesn’t sound like you’re ready to get married. This is a post for people who are deciding to get married.
Neither Of You Is Perfect
You will not like everything about the person you decide to get married to. Let me clue you in to another fact- they won’t like plenty of things about you. You are not perfect and neither are they, but the question is (and here’s another cliche) are you perfect for each other?
Do you like enough about the person you’re thinking about marrying and can you live with all the rest? That’s what you need to answer.
You will have to settle on something. Maybe it’s just that they put the toilet paper on the holder wrong. My wife did that in the beginning. For some reason it really pissed me off. I have absolutely no idea why.
There will be little things like that and you will not know all of them until you get married. You still won’t know all of them when then.
I have been married for ten years and I’m still finding out little things. And my wife finds little things that she doesn’t like about me, but that’s just how it is. That’s marriage.
You have to just settle. You have to just live with each other these little nuisances just becomes part a person’s character.
You will adapt to things that you don’t like about each other. You’ll sand off the rough edges of each other and you’ll both come to the middle.
That’s how marriage works.
Let me know what you had to settle on (and if you were the one who was putting the toilet paper on incorrectly in your relationship). Leave me a comment
That’s all for now. Thanks for reading. There’ll be more.
