The fact is Bruno Mars is not a marriage counselor.
And he is not even married.
But why should you listen to him?
I first heard about Bruno Mars from my teenage nephew.
He caught my attention because he is an awesome singer.
As I said, although this 25-year old songwriter-turned-singer from Hawaii is still single, there’s one song that can really teach us about the secret to long lasting relationships.
The song in question is “Just the Way You Are”.
The title explains it all.
Before marriage, everything we see is rosy. Our partner is angel and you tend to overlook his or her weaknesses.
Everything goes haywire once we get married. The OPPOSITE is true: We ignore our partner’s strengths and magnify his/her weaknesses.
When this happens, quarrels become a daily affair. And marriage gets worse by the day. Sadly, many choose the path of no return and file for divorce.
They forget why they got together in the first place. Why they attracted to each other.
It’s not an overstatement that most marital problems can be solved by accepting your partner whole-heartedly – including his/her shortcomings and character flaws. And there’s not a thing that we should try to change in our partner.
Take home this: Trying to change a person is a GRAVE mistake.
That’s the exact message of the song.
Anyway, if you want to take a look at the vid, here it is:
(BTW, the girl in the MTV is so cute. But don’t tell my wife I said it.)
Isn’t it beautiful (I mean the song, not the girl)? Isn’t it the way we want our partner to treat us?
And to be fair, we must do the same too.
