Has it ever occurred to you the difference between the words “complete” and “finish”? The following might be of interest to you:
During a recent linguistic conference held in London, England, and attended by some of the best linguists in the world: Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese, was the clear winner.
His final challenge was this: Some say there is no difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED. Please explain the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED in a way that is easy to understand.
Samsundar’s astute reply was:
“When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE. But, when you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!”
His answer was received with a standing ovation lasting over 5 minutes and it entitled him to receive an invitation to dine with the Queen, who invited him after the contest.

QUOTE FOR THE DAY
“Marriage is give and take. You’d better give it to her or she’ll take it anyway.”
A Philosopher HUSBAND said:-
Every WIFE is a ‘Mistress’ of her Husband… “Miss” for first year & “Stress” for rest of the life…
Here is an interesting quotation which I thought would be really helpful
“No relationship is all sunshine, but two people can share an umbrella and
survive the storm together.”…Unknown
During a “marriage encounter” workshop I overheard the following exchange between this loving couple. It ran like this:
WIFE: “How would you describe me?”
WIFE: “What does that mean?”
HUSBAND: “Adorable, beautiful, cute, delightful, elegant, fashionable, gorgeous, and hot.”
WIFE: “AW, thank you, but what about IJK?”
HUSBAND: “I’m just kidding!”
“Love is all around. It’s possible to love and be loved, no matter where you are”. – OPRAH
When you have love in your heart, you always attract loving and caring relationships
into your life.
You need to love yourself and accept who you are before you can love others.
People who are successful in love share one thing in common – they are selfless
and always put others’ interests above their own.
Here is some food for thought:
When you have the self-respect and the self-love necessary to take care of yourself, you’ve got the most basic ingredients of a healthly relationship.
No man can love you until you have given love to yourself.
Give her compliments regularly
Be very rich
Not stress her out
Not look at other women
Give her lots of attention, but expect little yourself
Give her lots of time, especially time for herself
Give her lots of space, never worrying about where she goes
and arrangements she has made.
In a relationship when one party is a control freak over the other person, it creates a lot of underlying tension and resentment. These characteristics can be identified as follows:
1. They see themselves as perfectionists
2. They tend to be judgemental and find fault with others
3. They believe that their way is the best
You are working in competition with your partner.
Everyone likes to be a winner. If your main reason for winning is to maintain your self-ego, then it becomes an obstacle. People fail to realise that winning has its downside too. The other party is made to feel belittled, that he or she is in the wrong or that he or she is not supporting your interests.
Lack of communication is one of the major drawbacks in maintaining a happy relationship. This is especially true if the guy hates to express his views and expose his vulnerability. Hence it is critical to overcome this underlying fear in order to move forward.
Some food for thought
ONE MUST NEITHER PRESUME NOR ASSUME!!
*There comes a time when a woman just has to trust her husband.*
The wife comes home late at night and quietly opens the door to her
bedroom. From under the sheets she sees four legs instead of two.
She reaches for a baseball bat and starts hitting the sheet as hard as
Leaving the covered bodies groaning, she goes to the kitchen to have a
drink. As she enters, she sees her husband there, reading a magazine.
“Hi, sweetheart,” he says. “Your parents have come to visit us,
so l let them stay in our bedroom. Did you say hello?”
A girl brings her boyfriend home to meet her parents. After dinner, her mother tells her father, a business tycoon, to find out about the young man. He invites the boy to join him for green tea in his study.
“So what are your plans?” the father asks the boy.
“I am a religious scholar and want to marry your daughter,” he replies.
“A scholar,” the father says. “Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to live in, and to which she is accustomed?”
“I will study,” the young man replies, “and God will provide for us.”
The conversation proceeds like this, and each time the father questions him, the boy insists that God will provide.
Later, the mother asks, “Well, how did it go?”
The father answers, “He has no job and no plans, but the good news is that he thinks I’m God.”
