L for Life partner #AtoZChallenge
His choices were hers.
She gave up meat for love and their story was perfect.
She was the perfect life partner.
But was he?
Marriage is again one of those things where women are expected to adjust more than men. They leave their home, change their last name and somewhere in between, lose their identity.
They become a life partner who understands, takes care of the household and gives up on her choices willingly. While wives encourage their husbands to focus on their career, do husband reciprocate the same? How many men willingly give up their career to become a primary caregiver for their child? How many men know that their wives need to have a social life too? I can go an on but the point here is that marriage is a partnership. One between two people who love each other and are friends. They need each other to be the best version of themselves.
I would be wrong to point at men here so the questions are open for both men and women. Let go of somethings and let your husbands and wives breathe.
“The most empowering relationships are those in which each partner lifts the other to a higher possession of their own being.”
― Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
