Allah has put some educative and admiring words in the Holy Quran about love, marriage and temptation. People normally say Allah knows best and things happening in our lives are regarded as destiny so therefore they are meant to happen. Not everything that happens in our lives is destiny. Some things happen as a result of how we design or recreate our lives.
Take married life for instance. Life after honeymoon is different from the run up to the wedding. Our elders usually say marriage is like honey, salt and pepper fused together in one candy bar. The beginning stage tastes sweet just like honey, then it starts changing taste until you start realizing a spicy taste. These changes occur as a result of situations such as children, work and family that come your way.
Allah says that He has put love and mercy between married couples. If you study marriages you realize the beginning is often always very passionate. You’re obsessed with your wife, you can’t think about anything else apart from her. The same applies in her case as well.
When Couples Start Loosing Attention For Each Other
It takes approximately six months for married couples to start losing the affection they had for one another. Initially they have less time for friends and families. They distance themselves from third parties so as to enjoy each other’s company without any interference. Unfortunately as time elapses, love becomes history in the hearts of most couples. It is then that many realize that all they had were physical attractions for their spouse. As the intimacy evaporates, many couples begin to see each other as a burden.
What Is Marriage About
Marriage is all about everlasting love, kindness and respect between couples and not a mere license to satisfying one’s sexual desires.
