What is done out of love is beyond good and evil. – Friedrich Nietzsche
Everyone in my network knows that I’m getting married in a couple of months, but only a few know our story. We are just a normal couple, struggling to get through every *stressful* day. What’s different about us is that we never let religion (or the lack thereof) dictate our morals — that’s probably the last thing we would like.
He was never the traditional sweep-me-off-my-feet kind of guy, but he would always make sure that I am taken care of. He didn’t have the normal hot guy physique, but his intelligence and thirst for knowledge always impresses me. He’s not the traditional man who always wants his way done, no matter what happens. He gave me a voice in the relationship. He let me assert myself despite of him being the man and me being the woman (and for a lot of people, in this day and age, that is still taboo).
His love for me is limitless. I cannot emphasize this enough — in spite of all the objections from his family, my family, and several other issues that we cannot discuss online — our love for each other gets stronger. I believe this is because we are both aware that morality in itself cannot categorize love.
Honestly, a lot of people surrounding us think that we made the worst decision when we decided to get married. Here are some of the more popular reasons:
1. We weren’t together long enough to actually get to know each other.
2. I am too *domineering* for a woman
3. He is too *soft* for a man
Not that we owe anyone any explanation, but I feel like gender roles and other extraditions shouldn’t be a problem for people who want to have a harmonious relationship. Love is too grand, too complex, for us to have it classified. Not by religion, not by gender, definitely not by roles.
And definitely not by someone else’s twisted view of morality.
