Love is not just a feeling it is a decision we make and stand-by because feelings come and go but for you to stay in marriage as confessed during your wedding rituals for better for worst, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, it takes a great deal of decision making to overcome circumstances in marriage.
Arsenal football club readily comes to mind, they went 8years without winning any major trophy under coach Arsene “Baba Ijebu” Wenger yet when you go to the gunners home ground “D EMIRATE” to watch a match, you’d see a big bold banner “IN ARSENE WE TRUST” that shows great love from everyone involved with Arsenal club from the coach’s assistants, ex-players, management, and fans.
For them it is more than just a feeling, it is a decision they are ready to stand by and when Wenger finally delivered a trophy (The FA Cup last season, 2013/14) it was well worth the wait.
In marriages where love is based on feelings there are high possibilities of separation or divorce like we’ve seen with Chelsea down the years hiring and firing manager at the slighted hint of failure.
Life is beautiful when it is lived in the right way and sometimes situations revolve around things we can relate to, like politics in government or loyalty in the office to your boss.
Falling in love with football was easy because of the beautiful way it is played and the emotion it evolves, I know you’ll want to ask; does beautiful include teams like stoke, park the bus Chelsea of old or the very rough Italian league of old? Not exactly, but part of the whole I guess or like we say in Nigeria “all-join”.
