I am not married. Not yet. Never have been in a relationship either. But all the redundant relations that i have come across up till this age, all the twenty three thousand people out which i befriended only twenty three hundred, i can with all the true wit and awe, say that the charm doesn't stay forever. Perhaps the same in marriage, where people are all in love at first, not taking hands off each other and perhaps there reach a moment where they can't figure out why they did it all in the first place?
I befriended so many people all my life. Played, laughed, spooked, loved and lived. But all i realized was that at the start of every relation, there are rainbows and butterflies, and giggles and playrooms, and fantasies and so much more. There is so much to talk about to your newly befriended friend. About your dreams, and ambitions, and what life you picture after 40 years and movies and music and so many things and probably don't make sense to anyone who is listening to your conversations right across another dinner table. The spark. The charm stays there for long. For as long as you don't feel like 'done talking'. For as long as you feel there is still much to talk about and 5 hours seems like a minute, not a day. Alas! It eventually all comes to an end. Or that's what i have been able to realize so far.
I don't know why i am taking this situation all friendly quite synonymous to marriage. But that is how it is. Like in marriage, long before it all stops to matter, there is love and there is fascination. And there is so much to talk about, to your partner in love. Just like a new friend, that you made cause it just clicked right there. And then its over. Soon after you are 'done talking'. Soon after the spark to talk your friend (Yeah now he's gone from new to an old friend, and you feel like making a new friend cause you are having too many complaints/troubles with your old friend) is over. So, i think we should be used to be this reality now. I have come to make myself used to not believing that the 'spark' stays forever. One day, at some point, this is all going to be over and you'll feel like making a new friend. Thinking that old friend was just a mistake. Just like marriage after 20 years.
