When the initial glitter of a marriage wears out, the underlying hard realities of day- to -day life and co-existence are gradually exposed.When thus exposed, the relationship is no more glamorous yet strongly linked. In the long run, it is the inner strength of the iron which sustains the chain-not the sheen of the gold cover.In the same way,the combined resolve of the couple sustains the marriage-not the fleeting moments of charms.
