It is going to be 6 years to my marriage. 6 lovely years that have changed me as a person. I doubt i would’ve gotten anything out of my life had i not gotten married. Despite promoting marriage, I must admit that marriage is not easy. In these 6 years, I have faced the ups and downs and lived to tell a tale. Marriage is not every ones piece of cake, especially not the current generation who has lost their perception of love for God, for their parents let alone love for someone. I must admin that marriage is not easy. I, myself have stumbled on this path. But i have the desire to correct every mistake i have made, and be a better man for myself, for my family and in the eyes of God.
Prior to getting married, I was aimless in what i did in life, indulged in all the wrongdoings that were forbidden by the Gurus from our Holy Scripture, The Guru Granth Sahib but I believe that God was watching out for me. He took my hand and connected me to my soulmate. It was not easy, as old habit die hard. But life was not meant to have been easy without struggle. She took all my problems as her own, and made resolving them look easy. She supported me every moment, in every way that she could. And i must say that my life turned a new leaf. When I met her, she introduced me to “You are my sunshine, my only sunshine“, and she really did end up being the sunshine in my life.
I must admit that marriage is not easy, but if you are willing to let go of your past self, let go of the wrong friends, let go of harmful lifestyle and embrace God, embrace the love for your wife, and put all your effort in working hard in being a better individual, trust me when I say that you shall feel successful in life. God has been gracious to us, and blessed us with a baby boy two years ago who we named Sehej (Meaning Calm). Since the day I embraced him in my arms, my love for my wife has increased exponentially. I know I am not perfect since old habits die hard but with every day passing, I shall work towards being the best husband, father, son, and friend I can be.
My marriage was made in heaven indeed.
Love you very much Satu Satu, and Sehej
