Must Read; So Touching,Read and Share

She married him today. At the end of the wedding
party, her mother gave her a newly opened bank
savings passbook, with $1000 deposited in it. She
told her, “My dear daughter, take this passbook.
Keep it as a record of your married life. Whenever
something happy and memorable happens in your
new life, put some money in. Write down what it’s
about next to the amount. The more memorable the
event is, the more money you can put in. I’ve done
the first one for you today. Do the others with your
husband. When you look back after many years, you
will know how much happiness you’ve both shared.’
She shared this with him after getting home. Both of
them thought it was a great idea and couldn’t wait to
make the next deposit! This is what the passbook
looked like after a while: – 7 Feb: $100, his first
birthday celebration after marriage – 1 Mar: $300,
she gets a salary raise – 20 Mar: $200, vacation – 15
Apr: $2000, She’s pregnant! – 1 Jun: $1000, He gets
the big promotion and so on… However, as the years
went by, they began fighting and arguing over trivial
things. They didn’t talk much. They regretted that
they had married the most nasty person in the
world…There was no more love. One day she talked
to her Mother. ‘Mom, we can’t stand it anymore. We
have decided to divorce. I can’t imagine how I
decided to marry this guy!’ Her mother replied, ‘Sure,
that’s no big deal. Just do whatever you want, if you
really can’t stand it. But before that, do one thing.
Remember the savings passbook I gave you on your
wedding day? Take out all money and spend it first.
You shouldn’t keep any record of such a poor
marriage.’ She agreed with her mother. So she went
to the bank, and was waiting in the queue to cancel
the account. While she was waiting, she took a look
at the passbook record. She looked, and looked, and
looked. Then the memory of all the previous joyful
moments came back to her. Her eyes were filled with
tears. She left and went home. When she got home,
she handed the passbook to her hubby and asked
him to spend the money before getting divorced. So
the next day, he went to the bank, and was waiting in
the queue to cancel the account. While he was
waiting, he took a look at the passbook record. He
looked, and looked, and looked. Then the memory of
all the previous joyful moments came back to him.
His eyes were filled with tears. He left and went
home. He gave the passbook back to her. She found
a new deposit of $5000. And a line next to the record:
‘This is the day I realized how much I’ve loved you
throughout all these years. How much happiness
you’ve brought me.’ They hugged and cried, putting
the passbook back into the safe. Marriage is not a
game, it’s not easy……but it’s beautiful……..you will
fight and argue, this is normal, because the both of
you came from different background, different
homes…..were raised by different parents, beliefs
and moral……so you cannot expect that everything
you say will be accepted by your spouse without their
opinion being tendered first…….so before you give
up, think back to the good times and to what brought
you together in the first place.
