Decisions of Love


I heard today on the radio, a woman discussing her relationship issues with the RJ. Her take on the problem and the RJ’s advice got me thinking and gave me the idea for this post. When astrology comes in between your relationship, does love still conquer all? Or is faith stronger than love? Read on to know more.

Ridhi and Rahul (names changed) are two young people in a relationship. They are yet to start their careers and find a direction in life. They are very much in love but are now facing some problems. Rahul is a Manglik and Ridhi is not.

Err what? What has that got to do with anything one may ask. I was surprised too when I heard this. Isn’t it too soon to worry about this. Well, they didn’t think so. So Rahul’s parents are firm believers in astrology and he believes they may not accept Ridhi. Manglik is one kind of state in the Hindu horoscope. But it is feared and has many superstitions attached to it. As a norm, Hindu beliefs are such that Mangliks are advised to marry other Mangliks only and vice-versa, failing to do so will result in disastrous consequences in the marriage.

Ridhi wants Rahul to take a firm stand on this issue and commit to her that he’s going to marry her no matter what the consequences. But he believes this decision should be left for the future and whatever happens at that time will be dealt with accordingly.

Naturally, Ridhi sees some warning signs because of this. The RJ that was listening on her side of the story also gave the advice that she should ask him to take a decision now and confront his parents about their relationship. If they won’t accept it then they should end it now, without “investing” more time in it.

But is it the best way to approach this relationship? Is there any right way? Do we always have to do the right thing anyway? I disagree.

Sometimes you should take life as it comes. Forget about the consequences for once and enjoy what you have. A relationship is a beautiful journey that two people decide to go on together. It’s an exciting adventure that should not be burdened with the stress of something so far off in the future. We should work on finding the solutions to problems and not fight with our partners over it.

There is no guarantee that relationships will survive the test of time. Why do we want to impose even more challenges and hardships on them? Don’t rush into things.
Enjoy the time before that big decision, take one step at a time.ย 
One may argue that why should she invest more time in a relationship that does not have a secure future. I would say no relationships have a secure future. They are secured and strengthened by our experiences and overcoming the hardships together.ย Let’s not think of the time you will spend together as the time you shall “invest” rather think of it as moments you will “live” and enjoy with the person you love.

Always live for Today, because we never know what Tomorrow may bring and what it can take away.

  1. Hey.. I like this thought.. Relationships and Marriage are difficult,, mostly it is the willingnes to make them work.. u have manglik or in laws or money or carrers and the list can go on for reasons that can turn issues.. People say wats important is that they are in love.. actually I feel that wats more important is the effort they take everyday to continue staying in love.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Well living for TOADY is something I really believe in with all my heart. Sometimes, we should definitely go with the flow instead of trying too hard. But isn’t taking decisions with a future prospective important as well? Even a relationship comes with a future prospect at one point and then there is no escaping, like the story you wrote. Well, may be, sometimes it’s better to kill it in the crib than letting it bloom, no matter how much momentary sadness you’ll have to bear. Life’s worth living and enjoying in every possible way, isn’t it? One failed relationship is not the end of it.
    Right? Being practical is necessary as well. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I agree, practical is nice. Perhaps in matters of a career, business and all forms of decisions, maybe even relationships. But in a relationship, I wouldn’t want to get too analytical too early on and weigh the pros and cons like a contract, every step of the way. I would want to give it my best, my trust and my belief.
      But sure sometimes, it is better to kill it before the time comes, all depends on the situation and the people involved in it.
      This is just my general perspective ๐Ÿ™‚
