Commitment Checklist

Continuing from an earlier post on Borrowed Advice and inspired by a heartbreaking piece I came up with a tentative checklist on questions to ask oneself before going in for a lifelong commitment:

  • Will I still love you when you are too tired for a movie but not a booze party?
  • Will I still love you when you catch a cold and demand 24-hr nursing care?
  • Will I still love you when you insist on trekking with an 11-month baby?
  • Will I still love you when your job is more important than mine?
  • Will I still love you when you have eyes only for your phone screen?
  • Will I still love you when your family is my family but mine is not yours?
  • Will I still love you when you are sullen, surly, cranky, moody, and grouchy?
  • Will I still love you when you are bald and fat?
  • Will I still love you when you break my heart over and over again?
  • Will I love you still?
  • Will I?

Thanks for reading. Feel free to add your own questions…

  1. Will I still love you if you keep blogging 24×7 ? 😉
    I think this would be a better question : will I still be able to love you in the same way I did before you cheated on me? (I see quite a few couple trying to get back after one of them ends an extra marital affair) getting back does include a lot of trust. 😊

    1. Wow. I am impressed. No not at the line (an excellent additiion btw) but that u ‘know” quite a few couples like this! I clearly belong to another era or have tiny circle😁🌹


      1. Know matlab newspaper mein pada tha 😛 most of my “friends” are not in contact after getting married. They are so engrossed in their own world 😂😂 there was some news a couple of months ago about people being cool with swapping spouses and all that. Last week too, there was an article about something similar.

  2. Some pertinent questions those are…and the list could just get longer😜…But wonder if it would make sense to a young bride who is going to take the plunge the first time

  3. I truly wish i wud have read this piece eleven years back maybe things wud have been different…but yes i think a young bride needs to learn her lessons on her own but this piece is like a reflective mirror suggesting you to see this before time runs off, thank you Dhalia for making us wiser day by day, your small medicines work a lot…
