Has anyone seen a perfect marriage?

What is a perfect marriage? How is it defined and who defines it? Is it a real thing or just a beautiful imaginary thing like the unicorns and mermaids: making for beautiful fantasies and stories but not found in real life.
A couple that handles their differences with ease, still has passion for one another and has completely alligned goals… do such couples exist? Has one ever 'seen' one with their own eyes? 🙂

Or is it that where there is love and maturity the perfectionmanifest itself in the imperfections…?

There is nothing perfect in this world. Everything is a compromise and those who willingly and lovingly accept it, go the distance. *p**p*For me, it is all about understanding and mutual respect that makes a relationship special. *p*

Not to brag, but this is how my marriage life is. My wife and I have our differences. We have resentment towards each other's families and we are quite open about it. We fight, yell at each other, point out each other's imperfections when we are angry. But we also love each other like the two crazy people we are. *p**p* *p**p*We have realised a few things, such as –*p**p*1. The two of us are the most important people in each other's lives.*p**p*2. Both of us are equals; and so are our needs; be it professional or emotional.*p**p*3. Our families are our families. Not your family, or my family.*p**p*4. Whatever happens, its always okay to move on.*p**p*5. Embrace my crazy side, and I will do the same for you.*p**p* *p**p* *p**p*See? Perfect.*p*

Perfect is the marriage where the spouses can easily handle their imperfections. That's how most of the marriages work where the couple knows that they are meant to be together and they can always take steps with mutual consent to make things work in their favor. The differences will always be there but that doesn't mean you part your ways. *p*

What is a perfect marriage, really? Is it the lack of fights? Always agreeing with each other, being passionate etc? For me it is about love that grows every passing day, no matter the obstacles internal or external. And so, yes, I believe perfect marriages exist. For only some lucky few. But they exist nontheless!*p*

Yes, I have seen a perfect marriage. My parents' marriage was a perfect one. They had great respect and understanding for each other. They made it a point to resolve all issues immediately and never left them lingering on. They stood up for each other and shared the workload, both my parents were working. Though theirs was an arranged marriage but those who met them always believed it was a love marriage. It is because I have seen them that I fail to understand why people break up. *p*

While perfection is a myth, a happy couple isn't. Every couple faces their own set of differences and it is how well you overcome those differences and make it your own. I know no one of our era would like to give it a thought but when I look at my parents I cannot help but smile. 30 years of togetherness and they are still bickering, still frowning but at the end of the day still falling in love together in their own old school ways. *p*

I honestly have not seen a perfect couple. As I find that what seems perfect on the outside, once you scratch the surface, may have a lot of problems. Perhaps relationships can't be perfect because the people in them aren't. It is just an ideal we can aspire to, but never really achieve!*p*

The parents of a classmate come to mind. Our friendship coninued post college and I was a frequent visitor to his house. His parents had a love marriage and seemed perfect. In his own words he said he had seen his parents fall more in love as they got older. Obviously they would have had their arguments etc, but they werethe closest to perfection any couple I met has been*p*
