Marry someone who could be..

Marriage? Just how big a decision it is? Enormous, right? Who to marry? When to marry? Is the person right for you? And many more unanswered questions pop into one’s head when thinking about this earth-shaking resolution.

So me and my friend we were sitting in the food court of a mall, sipping coffee and discussing over this very subject. Well, even we could not conclude to any answer and ended up saying it is contingent to every individual. But he said something very deep, something that kept me smiling the entire day.

“You love reading books so marry someone who can be your book, whose pages are unending, whose words mean always something new to you. The book that imparts wisdom, makes you laugh, makes you cry, tells you the truth but also lies to you to make you smile, whose words make you wonder again and again, who is a puzzle, a mystery you love to solve, a book that has all the answers to your questions. A book that you want to read again and again. A book that may not be a bestseller but would surely be you’re ‘the only classic’. A book which after every read, you close it and stare at the cover smiling and you wish that it would happen all over again. So marry someone who could be your book.”

PS: The idea belongs to my friend’s philosophical mind but I took the liberty to exaggerate it.

So what are your thoughts on it? Do you agree? Would you have it any other way? Would you marry someone like this?

  1. A creative mind he is. Marriage even this word terrified me,scares me. But I think it’s a big decision at least that must be taken by us not others should decide,I think you are getting my point. Marry the one who takes you to another world,haha.
    Great read✌👍

      1. The question still holds without an answer. Yes, there are people who are beautiful inside. But then again this world is too huge and where would one be able to find the one ?

    1. Hi there,
      Why loose hope?
      There is such a person, trust me on that. I cannot simply say that you will find him/her at a particular point but yes, you will and that person will change your entire perspective of life.
      It might be too soon, too early but yes, one day you will!!!

      1. Hey,
        I am not losing any hope, because I don’t have it in the first place to begin with.

        I believe you. I too hope that there is one for everyone.

        Too optimistic, I see.
        I am not disregarding your point of view. But I would to look at more realistic situations and well, I know me, hence I feel so.

      2. I guess everyone has their own point of view.
        But honestly, even I doubt myself sometimes. The fact that I can be a part of someone else’s life and that can be as important scares me and almost seems impossible to me.
        But then for me, I think “What’s the harm in dreaming?”
        PS: Please just don’t say that it’s more painful when those dreams shatter, just please. 😀

      3. Completely agree.
        Though for me, being a part of someone else’s life doesn’t scare me at all. Because I know I am not going to take any part in that.

        You are right again. What’s the harm in dreaming? I can’t dream of things that are very unlikely to happen.

        P.S. On the contrary, you will live your dreams. All the best. 😀

      1. That was a dhoka. You talk about marriages in business-like meetings, unless ofcourse you are looking for a suitor for youself.
        You do know why I asked you the question, right?

      2. Yeah I do know that. He does read books.
        Also I shout say that the person I met is a friend cum business partner and the meet turned out from work like to personal stuff.
        And as in unexpected situations our conversations turned too deep which could barely handle and which is why this deep thought from his insane mind 😀

      3. Shout say?
        You can just say.
        I was kidding about the whole business and marriage stuff. If you were talking about marriage in a business meetings, it would simply because you two know each other quite well.

        You don’t say.

  2. Your philosophical friend definitely had a point, and associating this very idea of marriage to books gave marriage a whole new dimension, and you, Moushmi, by exaggerating his philosophy, did a good job. 🙂 Though ‘when’ to buy such book, is still a poser. 😉

  3. Well, quite a very philosophical, & intriguing guy he would be who has got such ideology ov’r the concept. It just had my whole attention for sure!

    I must agree with him. Yeah, a guy must be a book, but more importantly, a guy must also have some knacks of “texturing” the thoughts of his lady by means of “scrawling” down an every inch of his novella right ‘pon the body of gurl ev’n without snatching the pleasure she deserved outta pain. In short, besides of being… good or bad book, he must be a “Quill” to his “Quinn” not just for allowing her read anything what she wants (from him, or what he servin’ to her), but also prioritizing her enough to carve ‘pon her soul just to make it delve in one not to make her feel good, but to make her feel blessed.

    Simply, marry someone who understands you. And understanding never comes easily. It takes real time to be understood.

    Here’s something for ya, gurl:

    “He can be your book. You can be his quill.
    He may write you down or may fill your wills’
    You just have to find, but what will you gotta find?
    Marriage ain’t no game, & its thoughts’ve us entwined.
    You don’t needa make him what you want;
    ain’t believe what you barely see throu; naked eyes.
    Simply, Marry the guy who ain’t just marry you…
    but also “care (s) enough to ask you if you ‘ight”.
    Be his novella. Let him be your book.
    Or let him be a pen just writing down what you unhook.”

    Good luck, Moushmi.
    Wishing you the best for your life ahead. May you find the right one to walk along for life!

    Also, kinda liked your post. But above all, enjoyed reading the philosophy of your friend as well. Very catchy, & so captivating thoughts he cracked ov’r the concept. For a moment, i was like: “whats? a book? oh dear, hope it’s gonna sell in bulk, man.” lol xoxo (kidding)

    Looking forward to readin’ your blogs, shortly.

    1. Hi there,
      Thank you so very much for these beautiful words.
      I have to say I couldn’t stop smiling reading every inch of your words.
      Thy were deep!!
      And you couldn’t have understood or interpreted any of this any better.
      Thank you so much for stopping by otherwise I would have missed this whole thought of yours.
      And I would be simply happy if he could be my pen, the rest we’d jot down in our specific journey.

  4. The idea is great but the question which rises is that why is it not easy to get the right person who can be the book you wish had endless pages, each telling a new story. To be looking for that one person who you don’t even know exists, the one who might bump into you at some random bookstore or even on a bus stop. That one person you might see for once and the next moment he is gone, gone forever. So,the book idea is great but what are the chances of this happening with everyone and what if the other person may prefer a different ‘book’.
    Wouldn’t it be easy if we just stop thinking about this and start living a life where every moment is important and who knows, maybe one day we might run into each other’s ‘classic’☺

    1. Thank for your thoughts and I agree that why should we keep searching for that book and not live our lives to our fullest, in the moment.
      You are right on that, and of course there is no such guarantee for each and every one of us that ‘the one’ is waiting for us, but there are few lucky ones who do get their ‘classic’.
      I may not be one of them but there must be someone who might be reading the perfect book.
