I believe in love...

It surprises me why people who married on the rebound, and after a couple of years end up fighting and wanting out, try to put the blame on something else. It's the husband's fault, the wife's, the kids...

Why'd you get married in the first place? Because you were broken hearted and you said "yes" to this "convenient" guy without thinking twice...without thinking at all.

I believe that if you marry for the wrong reasons, you'll end up making the annulment lawyers richer. Either that, or you'll be stuck in a bottomless pit feeling so very unhappy.

I want to believe that love is real, that happy-ever-after tales do happen. If only everyone would listen to Diana Ross - you can't hurry love, you just have to wait. Why tie the knot in a rush when you'd want to be untied afterwards? Why not wait and be really, really sure before jumping in? Better safe than sorry.

I have a friend in talks with an annulment lawyer. After 18 years, she wants out. Married for the wrong reasons. She believes in love, too. And I know it's not too late for her. Or anyone for that matter. She's bound to find Mr. Right (the right Mr. Right this time), fall head-over-heels in love, walk down the aisle a blushing, happy bride, and after many many years hold hands with the same Mr. Right, toothless and wrinkled but still in-love.

It can happen. It HAS happened to some. The first step: MARRY FOR LOVE, NOT FOR ANYTHING ELSE. That's non-negotiable.
