Here are a few observations on love versus marriage and I am sure if you have been in love or married that you can identify with at least a few of these.
It’s wonderful when you fall in love isn’t it. The world feels amazing. Your heart keeps thumping in anticipation. You lose weight because you can’t eat. There is so much to look forward to on every encounter with your lover.
But then you get married and gradually things change. Life goes from being moments of excitement to one of routine and over time the excitement just fades away.
Here’s a list I found that has a few differences between being in love and being married and I tell you, it’s all true.
If you have found the same, or indeed if you have found life after marriage to be totally different, please do let us know.
Anyhow, here’s the list. How many of these can you identify with…
Love is holding hands in the street. Marriage is holding arguments in the street.
Love is dinner for two in your favorite restaurant. Marriage is fish & chips take-away.
Love is cuddling on a sofa. Marriage is deciding on a sofa.
Love is talking about having children. Marriage is talking about getting away from children.
Love is going to bed early. Marriage is going to sleep early.
Love is a romantic drive. Marriage is a tarmac drive.
Love is losing your appetite. Marriage is losing your figure.
Love is sweet nothing in the ear. Marriage is sweet nothing in the bank. Actually divorce is even less than sweet nothing in the bank!
Love is a flickering flame. Marriage is a flickering television.
Love is one drink and two straws. Marriage is “Don’t you think you’ve had enough?”
Love is staying awake all night holding each other. Marriage is staying awake all night having an argument.
Love is driving to “lovers lane”. Marriage is driving to the supermarket.
Love is not being together enough. Marriage is being together too long.
Love is skipping work to be close to her. Marriage is working overtime to keep away from her.
Was I right? I’m sure you have experienced at least some of these after being married for a while. Got any more you can think of? Please let us know if you do by leaving us a comment.
