*Blowing dust off these pages* I should get a job that requires me to watch movies or read books for a living… If anyone knows of anything please holla my job gets more and more depressing.

So I understand that marriages after some time tend to turn sour and you don’t want to cuddle anymore or something as simple as the sound of your husband’s voice grates your nerves. I wonder is it love gone bad? Is it Love that drives the 2 people down the aisle or expectations?? I know what people are thinking same thing my mum always tells me; you’re young, wait till you get married you’ll understand.

So I would like to post a question after 5 years of marriage; the ups, the downs, the fights, tears, tickle fights and  countless cups of nighttime hot chocolate, if you’re given a clean slate, a do over, would you choose the same person?

My cousin Shiku who is more naive than a girl in form 2 should be, once listened to the ever popular breakfast show with that hippie Maina Kageni and when she heard people’s opinions on marriage, she is yet to understand why we want to get married or we keep telling her she should.

We are a generation that are more and more giving up on happily ever after and just looking forward to forever alone. I see folks who’ve been married for 50 years and still smile and laugh with each other the secret is in finding the right partner and loving someone for all the right reasons.

The movie “the Vow” is based on a true story about a couple who shortly after getting married get into a car accident and the wife suffers from amnesia. The chunk of her memory she has lost has to do with her husband from the time they met to when they got married. In her mind she is still stuck in College when she fell out with her family and hence has not spoken to them for 5 years.

Try as he might her husband cannot convince her that they were married let alone happily. She moves back with her family and her pushy father who never liked her husband in the first place is able to push for them to get divorced and he takes advantage of his daughter’s memory loss to get his way as concerns the direction her life will take.

I’m one of those awesome people who doesn’t tell even if am watching a movie for a second time but forgive the spoilers in this post. Long story short the couple rediscover each other and start dating and cliché as it may sound they get married again.

So y’all are thinking yeah yeah yeah!. That’s such a predictable story line but Hollywood did not create that. Its true. So I guess the question to ask yourself right now  is: would you fall inlove with your partner again given a chance? If you forget about the money, good looks and every superficial reason you might have fallen inlove with. Would you pick him again???



Fall in Love truly, madly deeply this month. Happy new month everyone.
