I’ll admit I am not much on movies. I love most all cowboy and war movies. But the most impressionable movie I ever saw was, “Fiddler on the Roof”, the more times I see it the more I learn about life. And I never liked Musicals set to Movies.
The older I get the more the meaning of, “My life is as precarious as a Fiddler on a Roof”.
I loved the part where Tevye, the poor milk man, is talking to his wife, Golde. And he sings, “Do you Love me?” over and over.
Golde finally answers, “
Do I love you?
For twenty-five years I've washed your clothes
Cooked your meals, cleaned your house
Given you children, milked the cow
After twenty-five years, why talk about love right now?
Then you love me?
I suppose I do
And I suppose I love you too
It doesn’t change a thing
But even so
After twenty-five years
It's nice to know
Of course their marriage had been ‘arranged’ as in the EARLY days many marriages were. Sometimes I think they should be now. But of course, like congress, I want to be exempt and pick my own, like I did!
Did you know that divorce is past the 50% mark in marriages? No wonder the youth of today, decide to live together, because they cannot make that ‘lifetime’ commitment.
I know that there are impossible cases where two people cannot live together for various reasons. Basically, the marriage was a mistake. But I believe more in today’s world would work if folks would TRY! Usually it is something small that festers (like Dar’s little sliver could have, until the marriage is truly sick.ref: http://darsstuffings.blogspot.com/2011/02/warm-home-pain-and-rewards.html ). I really do feel sorry for those folk; they will miss so much in life.
I see in life those divorced, some of them bitter, but most simply afraid, and cannot make themselves get back on the treadmill, as they call it.
In my opinion Marriage is worth it for the lonely, but finding the right person is the trick right?
I think I will quit, I don’t see how I merged into this subject. I am trying to take ‘Dear Abby’s Job’.
Shucks, a great marriage even makes a toothache easier to handle.
A body that keeps minutes and wastes hours.
