Project “Marriage” Management

“Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress and working together is success” – Henry Ford

If after all the stress of waking up to my 8 to 5 job, I am able to take away learnings that are applicable in more areas than one, then I am grateful I have a job that gives me such exposure.

I was recently at a Project Management training and a lot of things resonated in various ways that just classroom teaching. Basically everything in life is a project if you look at it in the sense of a classroom teaching. However, for the benefit of my blog, I wish to narrow this to the basics of marriage.

Come to think of it, I read on a blog once where the writer said she doesn’t believe in pre-marriage counselling. Well, I suppose that could work if you’ve dated your spouse long enough but then, I would still have opted for a pre-marriage counselling session. It sort of forms the scope of marriage – letting one know what to expect in marriage, what to do, what not to do, how to behave and what not to accept, to persevere, to love, to be forgiving and all those things. I hold those classes in high esteem and still refer to them as often as need be. So imagine a scenario where a naïve couple plunge into this institution, the only institution where you are given a certificate before commencing your first test. Forgive me, but it almost sounds like someone luring you into the deep with a million dollars. In any case, you need to understand the depth and width of your relationship before giving into marriage. Suffice to say at this point that the list of depths and widths is endless but not having one at all could be destabilizing.
