The meaning of marriage is joy. It goes without saying that married life is the happiest, fullest and richest. The wedding day should always be remembered and set apart from other particularly important dates in life. It is the familys duty to love and support each other. Everyone must forget about his "I" by devoting himself to the other.
Many famous people, when asked what is the most important thing in their life, answered that the most important thing to them is their family.
Michelle Obama had a lot to say and write on her Instagram profile.
As an adult, I’ve lived in a number of places, but as far as I’m concerned, I’ve only ever had one real home. My home is my family. My home is Barack.
But here’s the thing—our marriage has never been perfectly 50-50. One of us is always needing more or giving more. We have to be willing to listen to each other, honestly and without defensiveness. Only then, can we evolve together.
Over the years, a lot of young people have asked me about marriage. And my response usually goes something like this: You have to prepare yourself for long stretches of discord and discomfort. You have to learn how to make real compromises in the way you’ve lived as an individual. Glamorizing a relationship while you’re dating will lead you straight to difficulty once you’re married. You can’t paper over problems when you’re living with someone day in and day out.
So you’ve got to ask yourself: What are you trying to get out of this relationship? Have you truly thought it through? Do you want a wedding or do you want a lifelong partnership? Those are two very different things. Together, you are answering the question: Who are we and who do we want to be? Now I want to hear from you. What advice would you share about marriage or relationships? #TheLightWeCarry

After this message on her Instagram profile, Michelle Obama also received positive comments.
We love that you’re talking about the realness, sacrifice and awareness that comes from choosing to be married. We focus so much on happiness as a society but at the end of the day, another person cannot be responsible for your happiness! The advice we give often is - if you want to make a better marriage, make a better you. Two healthy and humble people make a healthy and happy marriage! Rather than looking at what your spouse is or isn’t doing, look at yourself first. Marriage has its ups and downs just like anything that truly matters in life. The people who make it work are the people willing do to the work ❤️People will say it’s about communication, emotional intimacy and trust/ all things that create a good marriage. We go back to this simple truth 👉🏽 Always be a lifelong learner. If you’re willing to learn how to be a good communicator, and how to build emotional intimacy and how to keep trust levels high - you can get there! It’s the couples who are willing to learn and grow that go the distance!!!
