Yesterday someone I love got hitched, formally in the marriage registrar's office. I am happy for her and I wish her and her new husband all the happiness in the world. May they love each other always. May the joy they found in each other last forever.
She is starting over again, after the misfortune of an unhappy marriage years ago. Some doubt her decision to remarry either out of concern for her or just because they can't accept the idea of remarrying. But some like me encourage her to follow her heart, for it is the heart that leads you to your happiness. There will be challenges- what marriage doesn't. But I believe that willingness to overcome the challenges and an open communication between the spouses will see them through. Marriage takes a lot of hard work to maintain, as goes the saying "marriage might be made in heaven but it has to be lived on earth".
Anyway, it is a new beginning, regardless of age. As love is blind to colors, so it is to age. And as the Carpenters put it "we've only just begun to live, white lace and promises, a kiss of love and we're on our way..." May love takes you to the place called happiness.
