There are billions of people in the world. All of us with our dreams, goals, heartaches, fears, doubts, hopes and beliefs. And in all this huge world, the beauty of love and marriage and longevity in them is that two people commit to one another without regard to whatever else may be out there. That's beautiful!
Further, commitment and love allows you to finally have someone to live with you as the person you truly are. There are no blinders. There are no airs. The gloves are off. You and this person live, love, know and hope together. You suffer together. You prosper together. You celebrate one another when success comes. You cry with one another when failure happens, and then swiftly lend your hand to help pick one another up. You witness the greatest parts of life. You witness the worst parts of life. Ultimately, you become one another. THAT is a beautiful marriage.
At the end of the day, what someone looks like, what they drive, how much money they make and all the other superficial things we look at are not as important as we think they are. Choose your partner wisely, but after you've decided, don't allow hell or high water to divide you if it is within your power to avoid it.
