Simple Secret for a Successful Marriage!!

Posted by Saipradeep on December 10, 2008

The following is a story that I recieved as a forward. It is an amazing story expecially for the married lot!!!

Monica married Hitesh the other day. At the end of the wedding party, Monica's mother gave her a newly opened bank saving passbook, with Rs.1000 deposit amount.

Mother said, 'Monica, take this passbook. Keep it as a record of your marriage life. When something happy and memorable happens in your new life, put some money in. Write down what it's about next to the line. 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 Hitesh. When you look back after years, you can know how much happiness you've had.”     

Monica shared this with Hitesh when getting home. They both thought it was a great idea and were anxious to know when the second deposit can be made.  

This was what they did after certain time,

 - 7 Feb: Rs.100, first birthday celebration for Hitesh after marriage                                     

 - 1 Mar: Rs.300, salary raise for Monica                                  
 - 20 Mar: Rs.200, vacation trip to Bali                                  
 - 15 Apr: Rs.2000, Monica got pregnant                                    
 - 1 Jun: Rs.1000, Hitesh got promoted

  ..... And so on...  

However, after a few years, they started fighting and arguing for trivial things. They didn't talk much. They regretted that they had married the nastiest people in the world and it seemed that there was no more love…


One day Monica talked to her Mother, “Mom, we can't stand it anymore. We agree to divorce. I can't imagine how I decided to marry this guy!!!”                           
Mother said “Sure, girl, 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 saving 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.”                                                                                                                                         
Monica thought it was right. So she went to the bank, waiting at the queue and planning to cancel the account. While she was waiting, she took a look at the passbook record. She looked and looked and looked. The memories of all the previous joy and happiness just came rushing into her mind. Her eyes were then filled with tears. She left and went home.  

Back home, she handed the passbook to Hitesh, asked him to spend the money before getting the divorce.          

The next day, Hitesh gave the passbook back to Monica. She found a new deposit of Rs.5000 and a line next to the record which said, “‘this is the day I noticed how much I've loved you thru all these years and how much happiness you've brought me.” 

They hugged and cried, and put the passbook back into the safe. 

Do you know how much money they had saved when they retired? I did not ask. I believe the money did not matter any more after they had gone thru all the good years in their life                               

Amazing story isnt it... take away for the married lot and also the aspiring ones... 🙂                             
‘When you fall in life in any way, don’t see the place where you fell, instead see the place from where you slipped. Life is about correcting mistakes.’
