Customs escort the bride and groom to adore good responsibilities!
The regions of cultural jubilances like India have seen much of the fervor and paraphernalia attached with the wedding occasion. All the customs do import a value element to the occasion and point to certain responsibilities. What are these responsibilities? Let’s look into!
Respect for the relation is must
The relation that is cemented is itself a major responsibility in it. The wedlock makes up the couple and the bride and groom are brought together to become one both physically and socially too. The latter element is what is reflected in the open domains and forms the basis of the prospective family that would grow into a healthy tree in the times to come! How could this happen if the wedlock has not been kept? Here is the responsibility and speaking in present social contexts, this responsibility involves a good deal of challenge for the couple. Both should try and live this high responsibility as the basis of life; try to respect each other’s feeling and moreover catalyze the life vehicle through the brighter pursuits of a newly married life. Trust and love are the good attributes that need to be nourished with all dedication from both sides to make out a healthy foundation for future!
Fortunately, the social – cultural amalgams were brewed and nurtured strong enough to support these responsibilities and the couples have been successful in emulating Cupid’s manners and affections.
The eternal aims!
A good and healthy relationship then paves way to engage into other higher responsibilities such as the upbringing of the offspring. Here again, the Nature has taken care to seed the core affinities or fatherhood and motherhood in every individual. These attributes need to be cultured with the warmth of the heart and soul to achieve the greater aims of delivering back to the ‘cycle of eternity’. We all are the part of this supreme cycle and therefore have obligation to return the favor! Parenting is the path to be traversed. This path is long, endurable and requires great deal of patience and dedication on the part of the couple. This aim is achieved when the offspring is ready to serve in the supreme cycle of eternity on his/her own. The couple’s responsibility now starts to lessen as they enter the third phase of life. The fruits are very wholesome and great and could be clubbed all as one single term called as ‘satisfaction’! It won’t be bad to call this satisfaction as the true ‘nirvana’ of the Holy Scriptures!
