10 Things you should know about marriage

I got this article from @IslamicThinking , i just can’t help but save it, because it’s too worth to slip by… 


♥  It’s from the inadequacy of a person to be concerned only with personal gratification and satisfaction.

♥  Do you suffer from face-addiction ? Or do you seek beauty in the imperfections of a person ?

♥  You may know what you are looking for in a partner, but are you aware of what YOU have to offer ?

♥  Allah likens spouses to a garment, thus know and understand it consists of imperfections.

♥  Men and Women are different: understand this for effective communication and know differences to cohabit.

♥  Marriage is a partnership not a competition between two people: it should establish an equilibrium.

♥  Falling in love is easy, sustaining that requires effort and for it to be coupled with mercy.

♥  We marry to create a comfortable space for individual and collective growth both emotionally and spiritually.

♥  Too often we forget that marriage is a union between two personalities, not a correctional institution.

♥  Finding a partner is only the very beginning, sustaining the marriage is what defines it.
