Marriage as we all know is a great institution which brings two together and make them one. the word “WE” instead of the original “I” arises because they have both been joined in holy matrimony which makes us a “WE”.
It is very interesting how the metamorphosis of life goes round and round starting from when we were little till when we became adults and finally decided getting married. Marriage as we all know is a great institution, the most interesting part of this great institution is graduating from “I” as a bachelor or spinster to “WE” as married couples and facing all the challenges that comes with it.
The bible quote says “A man shall leave his father and mother and become one with his spouse” and they shall become one, therefore everything they do or say is in harmony and agreement and decisions taken is under mutual understanding mostly from both parties. The major reason which brings two people together in the first place is attraction which eventually develops to love over the cause of time and it is the major reason for marriage eventually.
It makes both parties realize they have each others back as couples by getting married and these leads to going out together, doing things together, taking decisions together which is why the word “WE” is paramount in everything they do instead of the word “I” which is often used by a single person who is not committed to somebody but themselves.
Every institution has its own language and the word “WE” which means “two of us ” is predominant in marriage because, both have become one in decision-making and every other thing they do, therefore differentiating them from the singles and unmarried. Now that both have become one, trust, understanding, enduring each other due to challenges of marriage is very important and the love they share will surely overcome all challenges as long as they keep standing as one.
Love is more than words or what we can comprehend, It is more than an occasional gift. Love is a commitment to one another, It indicates our willingness to adapt to and cooperate with each other. It is a lot of effort. When we first meet and court somebody, we are happy that someone noticed us, have interest in us and profess their feelings for us. As the years pass, we do realize that we know more about what makes our partners happy, sad and is important to them.
Marriage is a change of language, because of the love that brings us together and makes us one. Love as we all know, is the greatest reward between two partners which is the foundation of the unity in the first place, because it creates companionship, understanding with one another, sensitivity, unselfishness, tenderness and makes room for accommodation between both parties.
There is always a special bond or unity which makes it possible for us to appreciate and value what could be of importance to each other. The language of marriage which makes us a “WE” instead of a “I” is the affection we show for each other by saying I love you, you are precious to me, I like being around you all the time e.t.c, some couples would say these words to each other everyday, which gives them more confidence and confirms to them, how happy they are with each other.
