Marriage is made in heaven…..

So are thunder and lightning!

The fairytale story that once a couple is married, they “live happily ever after” is a total myth… a fabrication of the story-teller’s imagination. Based on statistics, being “happily married” is as much of a myth as the fairy tale. 

“Marriages are made in heaven” is an extremely famous quote but I could never agree with it! No, marriages aren’t made in heaven rather they are made on earth and a lot of work goes into making them remotely earthy, forget divine! Here is why I believe that marriages are not made in heaven; 1) poor choice, 2) unrealistic expectations, and 3) failure to maintain the relationship. You are absolutely not going to be absolutely gaga over each other every single day for the rest of your lives…. You’re even going to wake up some mornings and think, “Ugh, you’re still here…..”

Lasting relationships, regardless of whether two people concerned are married or not, are mainly based on a mix of rights and obligations for a lifetime. It is the physical, mental and spiritual unison of two souls. The ones made in the heart rust with time, the ones made in the mind lack intimacy, the ones made in both heart and mind last. Heaven comes nowhere in it.

Modesty and Beauty – the lost connection 0 402

BizNomics - Chandi

BiZnomics LIFESTYLE Desk – By Chandi A.

BizNomics Lifestyle Desk - By Chandi ALong dresses and long skirts aren’t my cup of tea. In my teen years I would squirm whenever I had to wear long skirts out to the town. Who would ever show interest in me wearing long skirts or baggy jeans I would question? Guess I am just never going to ever find a boyfriend, I sighed. Dressing modesty wasn’t one of my priorities.

As I grew up and had more control over what I could wear, I was able to strut my stuff, loved the stares and attention that followed. Whether it was my desire for attention in general or being able to capture a man’s attention, it felt darn good.
As a female I am sure you can identify with wanting to dress in the latest fashion and look sexier than the next girl who thinks she is all that. We are socialized to believe that the shorter the hemline and the more skin revealed and of course one eighth of the bosom covered, the sexier we look. But should this really be the case? Through fashion we showcase our personality, sure that is perfectly ok, but do we really need to be skimpy about it?

Ancient Sri Lankan dressing habits illustrate the initial absence of social taboo relating to upper class women exhibiting their breasts. Is there a necessity to repeat history in the 21st century?
When we think of modesty, it is not long skirts and turtle necks. Dressing well is more than just having good taste and style. It is also about knowing your body and knowing what works and what doesn’t. Fashion is not about blindly following trends and styles; it is about wearing something that flatters your figure and reflects your unique style.
