As you’ve probably noticed, I have been in the process of slowly but surely implementing some new ideas, so that Classic Ruby (now accessible via ClassicRuby.com!!!) can be more than simply a journal for my thoughts and grievances. I mean, realistically, if its just the same old, same old each and every day, where’s the excitement in that? I want to keep you guys guessing “what’s Ruby gonna come up with next?”, and titillate those big, beautiful brains of yours! So without further ado, I bring you Classic Ruby Contemplations!!
Classic Ruby Contemplations, or Classic Contemplations for short, are going to be extremely short and sweet. It’ll be a series of passing thoughts or ideas that have crossed my mind at any given time. Eventually, Classic Contemplations are going to be a regular weekly series, just like the Ruby Rants will be. Until I have some type of timetable set up, though, keep your eyes peeled for these little snippets of golden, brilliantly insightful yet teasingly succinct reflections. Of course, it would be unfair to you if I didn’t, after all this talk about the Classic Contemplations, start you off with one, whet your teeth for future presentations. So here it goes! Let me know what you think of this little special…it might be a bit off the norm, but this is just proof that I am a complex, intricately detailed person, with many beautiful complimentary sides! lol
How do you know when you’ve found “the one”? What’s the moment when you know you can spend the rest of your life with someone? How in the world can you tell if they feel the same? I mean, in this world of divorce, where you know that at least 50% of marriages are going to end in divorce, and that most of those don’t even last past the 5 year itch, how does anybody know when they’re in a “sure thing?” Those less than 50% that last until death does them part… what are they doing right? Is it the depth of their love for each other, their commitment to marriage and building a partnership, or their fear of not being Mr. and Mrs., of admitting failure? Or is it none of the above? I am dying to know: is this real? Have I found IT? Just because it didn’t start in fireworks and undying love and devotion doesn’t mean that it isn’t meant to end that way. Does it?
This isn’t the exact video I wanted, but it’s definitely still from the same movie and illustrates my point either way (it’s the scene with her and her Dad talking, when he reveals that his beautiful marriage made in heaven began as an arranged one). He promises to love her forever if she accepts his proposal. How is he SO confident of that? How does he know this?
