Marriage, Is It Overrated?

By:  Davida Brown 


When I was a little girl, I loved all the princess fairy tales.  Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty…I couldn’t get enough. Each time the Prince arrived, I’d clap with glee.  He was always so dreamy and knew exactly what to say to melt the Princess’ heart.  And, honestly, he melted mine.  He seemed perfect in every way. I longed for the day when I too would meet my Prince and we’d ride off into the sunset, destined for a life filled with sunshine and blue skies.

As I grew up, I realized that fairy tales are just that. Not reality.  Yes, I eventually met my Prince.  Yes, he was dreamy. Yes, he said all the right things.  Yes, he melted my heart.  But that’s where the similarities ended.  My husband is my Prince, but Perfect? No. And me, Perfect? Uh no. Our relationship, Perfect? Absolutely no. After we tied the knot, did we start a blissful life together? You already know the answer.

I recently read an article about marriage wherein the author questioned whether marriage is overrated.  The author talked about how so many marriages fail, how couples aren’t really willing to put in the work to make the marriage thrive, how most marriages just coast along. Ultimately, the author concluded that most couples eventually discover that while marriage has benefits, it’s overrated, and for many, not really worth all the effort it requires.

As I reflected on the article, I couldn’t help but think back to my childhood, the fairy tales, and all the things I thought marriage would be. I was fortunate enough to see “marriage” in action firsthand, as I was raised by parents who were married until death.  I was fortunate enough to witness how a couple communicates effectively.  I was fortunate enough to witness how a couple should handle adversity, manage differences and move forward together.  At the time, I didn’t know that those observations would shape my expectations of marriage.  At the time, I didn’t know that those observations would supplant the fairy tale romance and notions of marriage I had as a small child. At the time, I had no idea that those observations would make me a believer—a believer that marriage, a great marriage, can never be overrated. 

If anything, marriage is underrated and here’s why.

  • Marriage is the quintessential team. My marriage is the only relationship I’ve experienced where another human being is 100% invested in me.  My husband wants to experience, be part of, and influence my life’s journey.  He wants me to “win” in every way possible and is committed to doing his part to see that happen.  And yes it’s reciprocal.  See what we’ve figured out is, my experiences affect him and as a result become part of his journey. When I’m happy, so is he.  When I’m b*tchy, he’s off his game.  When I’m stressed, so is he. When I succeed – promotion or other accomplishments – so does he. We are a team.  There is no “I”, only “we” and “us.”  I am truly an extension of him and him, an extension of me.   What other relationship offers that?
  •  Marriage allows complete vulnerability. My marriage is the only relationship I’ve experienced where I can be 100% vulnerable and completely transparent.  I can say those things I only think about and dare not say out loud for fear of rejection, disapproval or judgment. I can fail miserably and fall completely apart at the seams, because he’ll be there to help me pick up the pieces. I can be 100% me, flaws and all, without fear that he’ll leave me, because he gets that they’re part of me and make me the woman he simply can’t be without. What other relationship offers that?
  • Marriage has incomparable sexual Intimacy. My body is 100% his and his is 100% mine. This fact unleashes a freedom and inhibition that is unparalleled.  Can you have great, even toe-curling sex outside of marriage? Yes, but it pales in comparison to the intimacy and connection you’ll experience with your spouse. Our sex blows my mind. What other relationship offers that?
  • Marriage is the highest high. When we are in sync, the happiness I feel is unmatched.  It trumps my best day at work. It trumps my melting heart when my kids smile at me, call me mommy, and say they love me.  In fact, that happiness is addictive. We both crave it, and during the “valleys”, we both start itching for that moment when we’ll be back at that happy place again.  In what other relationship could I experience that?


Is my marriage a fairy tale? No.  Have we experienced storms that nearly wiped us out? Yes indeed.  Would I trade it for single hood or any other relationship? Not in a million years.  Is it Overrated? No way, far from it.

    I am one of those people who said, “I’ll never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called Dr Jumba. When I nearly lost David in one of our stupid, fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything. I cried all day and thought that he would never come back to me again. I read so much testimony about Dr Jumba love spell ,how he helped to bring back an ex lover .I quickly emailed him and helped get back my husband with his power, he didn’t take advantage of me because I was hurt and needed help by all means . Dr Jumba you are the best, you performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it, or how this spell works, but all I know is, IT WORKS PERFECTLY!! My husband and I are happily back together, and I’ll always be grateful to you Dr Jumba. email him for any kind of help. He is capable and reliable to help you solve any problem. wiccalovespelltools@yahoo.com , wiccalovespelltools@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +19085174108 . Website : https://drjumbaspellhome.wordpress.com

    You produce great content here Miss, I'll be saving your blogs so I don’t miss out, Now let me tell my story of how I escaped financial crisis and show people that they can become wealthy too...I’m sure most of you don't know there are hacked cards used by investment bankers worldwide? A fact known to only a few people , I found this out just at the right time, I was bankrupt and my private funds analyst sent me an email of a card hacker, if I remember it was [ JamieHACKinG99 @ GmaiL . Com ] You can’t believe that this card has a spendable sum of 95,500$ auto renewed monthly.. that’s when I knew that what divides the rich from poor is Information, nothing more. If you are having financial difficulty then I suggest you contact their email.

    I want to use this opportunity to share the good works of Dr. Odunga who brought my husband back to me from another woman in 2 days. His email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and his WhatsApp contact is +2348167159012.

    The day my husband left me, things appeared bleak, and the atmosphere was heavy with uncertainties. Everything seemed pale and so I decided to look for help in spell casters who have the capability to bring my ex husband back to me. As envisaged, I went on the internet and as you too have seen in your search for a reliable spell caster, I saw a lot of testimonies of spell casters in the recovery of ex husbands and loved ones. Driven by belief in Doctor Odunga, I contacted him and after explaining things to him, he accepted to face the challenges on ground. He did brilliantly well. My ex husband came back to me within 2 days of contact with more care and affection and promised never to leave me. I will therefore like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to him and share this testimony to enable others in need to contact him for his selfless service to situations and problems. Commendable, he shows great courage at taking on the daunting task of finding solutions to practically any given problem. Contact him at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and I believe he won't fail you too.
