We met again for the second time. I thought you guys wont turn up.Instead the attendance was full house! A whopping 52 of you. Hehehe..let us see whether we can maintain that!
Hem...our topic that night was mostly on "What is marriage?"You still remember "mithaqan Ghalidan?" which means, a serious covenant (agreement) that should not be taken lightly. It is a legal agreement between man and woman through which both sides enjoy the rights and obligations as husband and wife.
Then, we also discussed the criteria in choosing spouses. Religion or Faith has always been the top priority followed by financial competence, compatibility, loving and beauty. She doesnt have to be as beautiful as Maya Karin -if you consider her as beautiful (well I think she is)or as charming as Robert Redford (him again?).Hem...lets see...do we have a Malay good looking man as an example?Hem...I dont know any except for Rosyam Nor (Sorry!).But again, beauty is truly in the eyes of the beholder. At the end of the day, beauty is also only skin deep. Do you agree? As a future wife, you want someone whom you can respect, be a good leader, guide you and your children to the right path as stipulated in the Quran.
I shall end this posting with a few wonderful quotations:
"A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences". - Dave Meurer, "Daze of Our Wives"
"A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person".
- Mignon McLaughlin
"Soul-mates are people who bring out the best in you. They are not perfect but are always perfect for you". - Author Unknown
Do you have any other quotes to share? Whether they are your own or taken from other sources, I would surely welcome them. Thank you for taking time to visit this blog. I hope you learn something :-)
