37. Responsibilities of husband and wife
It is sometimes said that
The responsibility of
A husband is greater than
Of the wife.
But how heavy is
The wife’s responsibility
To accept the husband
When she thinks
He is wrong
In his responsibilities?
Make it not difficult
For Hawa to perform her duties,
Make is not difficult
For Adam to perform his duties,
In the Lord of Adam and Hawa
You will find eternal recompense
For what patience both of you show!
I am not married. I once was, and I have a son to prove for it. My client jokingly likes to call me 'recycled goods'. I myself used to refer to myself as 'damaged' with 'reasonable wear and tear'. But I think I am neither. I am just me, one of many hundreds of million or perhaps billion of souls out there hoping one day for an opportunity to marry.
I hope to be a good husband one day. As you too perhaps hope to be a good hubby or wife. It is not the easy path, but if you choose this way, then I wish you all the best and may you find the wisdom and patience to gain the eternal recompense of the Lord of Adam and Eve. I am thinking about all this because within this one year, a bushel of friends are planning to get hitched. Jolly exciting stuff!
God bless you, sunshine.
