smile of the day…:-)

N.B. Ce post m’a été inspiré par la comédie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” – revue récemment… – This post has been inspired by the funny movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” that I’ve recently watched for the 2nd time… 🙂 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfYF3TAST5E#t=11

motto:”Le mariage simplifie la vie et complique la journée…”(Jean Rostand)

eh bien, Mr Rostand, je ne suis pas d’accord avec vous lorsque vous affirmez que le mariage nous simplifie la vie… 🙂 avec tout le respect, je dois vous dire que votre affirmation n’a ni queue, ni tête, pas de sens, quoi! Donc, selon vous, dès que nous sommes mariés, ça devient compliqué de se comporter et d’agir tels quels? nous nous réveillons le matin, et nous commençons déjà à nous plaindre, à pleurnicher ou à râler contre la journée en question?… Pourriez-vous préciser ou expliquer, le simple et le compliqué d’un couple marié, SVP?… 🙂 et puis, j’aurais préféré que vous fassiez allusion au jour du mariage, aussi – le plus “démentiel” pour les 2 époux… 🙂 Pensez-vous que la mariée est une princesse ou une super-femme? Que nenni et pas du tout, elle est tjs stressée, l’estomac noué, les genoux tremblants, l’émotion dans la voix, alors que tout le monde souhaite qu’elle soit la plus belle: bien-coiffée, joliment maquillée, arrangée, charmante, agréable… 🙂

Et qu’elle parle, qu’elle sourie, qu’elle danse jusqu’à l’aube avec tous les invités, mais surtout qu’elle reste impecc’! Alors que la plupart des mariés reste “cool”, sans souci de ce genre! 🙂 Disons que le mariage nous simplifie la vie – sur les papiers officiels, évidemment… 🙂 Le soi-disant “mérite” des couples mariés est reconnu seulement dans leur combat pour sauver la planète, parce que la majorité partagent tout: impôts, factures, meubles, salle-de-bains, lit, télé, comptes bancaires ou additions! Par conséquent, Monsieur Rostand, vous avez raison à 1/2, mais en tant que biologiste, il me semble que vous avez omis qqchose d’essentiel pour un couple marié: la nature des sentiments et des relations entre les 2 partenaires… quels seraient vos arguments là-dessus? A propos, je préfère une autre affirmation de vous, au conditionnel-présent:”Un bon mariage serait celui où l’on oublierait, le jour, qu’on est amants, et la nuit, qu’on est époux…” 🙂 – pix from google.fr

motto:”Marriage makes life simpler and each day difficult…”(Jean Rostand)

Well, Mr Rostand, I don’t agree with you when you say that marriage makes our lives easier. 🙂 With all due respect, I dare tell you that your statement has neither tail nor head, no common sense! 🙂 Therefore, according to you, as soon as we got married, it gets complicated to behave and to act as such? we wake up in the morning, and we already start to complain, whine or grumble against the new day?… Could you make it clear or elaborate: what’s simple and what’s complicated about a married couple, please…? – and then again, I would’ve liked you to mention something about the wedding day, too, ’cause it’s the most “insane” moment for the 2 spouses… Do you think that the bride is a princess or super woman? Not at all, she’s always stressed-out, her stomach is “knotted”, her knees are shaking and her voice is emotional, whilst everyone wants her to be “THE prettiest gal”, with stylish hairdo, gorgeous make-up, elegant, charming, pleasant… 🙂

And she has to talk, to smile, to dance with all the guests, until dawn, but mostly she has to stay perfect! While most grooms are “cool” and carefree! Let’s say that marriage makes our lives easier – on the official papers, of course… 🙂 The so-called “value” of the married couples is recognized in their fight to save the planet, because most of them share everything: taxes, bills, furniture, bathroom, bed, TV, bank accounts or checks! Therefore, Mr. Rostand, you are right about 50%, but as a biologist, it seems that you’ve missed something essential about a married couple: the nature of the feelings and of the relationship between the 2 partners… I wonder what would be your arguments on this topic?… btw, I did like another statement of yours, at the present conditional tense:”A successful marriage would be the one where we’d forget we’re lovers during the day, and a married couple at night…” 🙂

  1. I love that movie and I love the ending quote!

  2. Melanie, your blog is getting even better, day after day! Love also your new Gravatar! You’re a brainy lady! Take care and have a wonderful day!

  3. Just wonderful! I so appreciate this.

  4. I loved this movie and your post in which reality hits science!

  5. Thanks for the great post, Melanie! 🙂

  6. Well, the bride is not the only one with stress. A little while after our wedding, I asked my husband what he was thinking when he saw me coming down the aisle. (I was hoping for something complementary or romantic.) He said that as he turned to watch me, he suddenly panicked that his fly might be open. 🙂

    I do think weddings are for the mothers and so there will be photos for the bride to see since the day’s a blur for her.

    Fun post.

  7. Not seen this Movie Melanie… Wishing you a wonderful week with LOTS OF SMILES! ❤

  8. Bonjour Mela de Toulouse, juste une question encore, je vois souvent un motto qui parle, je pense que c’est votre chat, mais je n’en suis pas sûr.

  9. Marriage is not about a contract but a commitment. And you are so right – for the bride the whole wedding thing is a stress bubble that eventually dissipates after the event, leaving her with little or no memory of the actual day except by looking at pictures! My eldest daughter gets married on 22nd August… I am very in touch with this just now! BUT, to be married to my lover, my best friend, the one with whom I share the coalescence of the restitution of zero… now that is the meaning of life for me. Lovely piece and I will check out M. Rostand this evening! 🙂

    • I totally agree with you on marriage… oh, Monsieur Jean Rostand’s works are very interesting… lemme know and keep me posted, please! 🙂

  10. What about this quote? “Marriage: A friendship recognized by the police.” – Robert Louis Stevenson – That made me smile.
