Don't make a promise when you are in joy.
Don't reply when you are sad.
Don't make a decision when you are angry.
What is Marriage?
The teacher said, "in order to answer your question, go to the padi field and choose the biggest padi and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick."
The student went to the field, went through first row, he saw one big padi, but he wonders may be there is a bigger one later. Then he saw another bigger one... but may be there is an even bigger one waiting for him. Later, when he finished more than half of the padi field, he start to realize that the padi is not as big as the previous one he saw, he then knew he has missed the biggest one, and he regretted !!!! So, he ended up went backto the teacher with empty hand.
The teacher told him, "... this is love... you keep looking for a better one, but when later you realize, you have already missed the person.... "
"What is marriage then?" the student asked.
The teacher said, "in order to answer your question, go to the corn field and choose the biggest corn and come back. But the rule is: you can gothrough them only once and cannot turn back to pick."
The student went to the corn field, this time he was careful not to repeat the previous mistake, when he reached the middle of the field, he has picked one medium corn that he felt satisfied with, and came back to the teacher.
The teacher told him, "this time you bring back a corn.... you look for one that is just nice, and you have faith and believe that this is the best one you get.... this is marriage."
