Love & Marriage| ازدواج وعشق

“93rd story”


Abas asked his father: “What is the difference between love and marriage?”


His father’s phone rang at the same time and the question stayed unanswered.


The next day his father handed an old, antique book to Abas.

Abas said: “This is a very valuable book; I promise that I will take good care of it.”


Abas later put the treasured book on a special place in his bookcase to store it.

A few days later his father was reading a newspaper, when he put it down Abas picked the paper up to read it.


His father said: “This newspaper belongs to the neighbor, I borrowed it for today only. I have to return it this afternoon.”Abas read the important parts of the paper fast and made sure he didn’t miss anything.


When Abas was reading fast and paying attention to the paper, his father laughed and said: “Now do you see the difference between love and marriage?”


Abas was confused.

Father continued: “In love, you try hard to give attention, demonstrate that you care and show feelings because you are not sure if it would be yours forever, just like this newspaper.


But in marriage you have that valuable relationship exactly like that valuable book, you know it is yours and you don’t take time to look at it when you have a chance.”


That is so unfortunate how we forget that marriage is very valuable and we shouldn’t leave it aside. We should appreciate it and treat it like we may not have it the next day.

  11. Una perfetta chiusa del cerchio.
    Ma proprio perché ho sempre immaginato la sorte del libro che non ho mai più accolto il matrimonio come legame d’amore.

  28. Laleh, I changed my phone number… whoops. So, now I’m having trouble getting back into my blog due to Authenticator thingy. Anyway, to hopefully fix the problem, i made another WP blog and invited myself to be an Administrator on my site, so to speak. Naturally, I accepted the invitation. Lol. Anyway, I’m using my same name and everything, but I’m so confused. More so than usual! Hugs! I’m still here. ♥️ Tamara Nika
