The Truth About Love & Marriage

Underneath the spectacular exterior, SUNNY LEONE is sensible, stable and sweetly sentimental too. NICHOLA PAIS lobs some famous love quotes at her, which she returns with panache and perception.

“My prince is not coming on a white horse. He’s obviously riding a turtle and is definitely lost!”

Sunny Says… Nah!

No, not really. I was young and wanted to be single for a while and then, out of nowhere, Daniel came into my life. Like an angel!
The list of must-have qualities was long but every girl has that, LOL! The most important things were that he wasn’t a Scorpio, loves his family especially his mother, is independent and hard working, supportive, and also could make me laugh.
I knew Daniel was someone I really liked and we had a lot in common but when my mother passed away three months after meeting him is when I knew God had taken my mother but had given me an angel named Daniel. He stepped up and basically took care of me, my brother and father in the best way he could. And when my father found out he had cancer eight months later, again Daniel stepped in to take care of him, my brother and myself. I know God has sent me someone very special and still to this day he takes care of my brother and I with so much love. I knew he was my life partner the moment he didn’t run away after finding out my mother had passed on.

“The most important four words for a successful marriage – ‘I’ll do the dishes’”
Sunny Says… Yeah!

Both Daniel and I grew up in a home where both our mother and father shared all household duties so we don’t know anything different but to help each other out. My father cooked, cleaned, helped my mother always and my mother always helped my father in every way possible. Daniel’s father, to this day at 72 years of age, still helps his mother do the dishes. It’s a very cute sight. They both help each other and that example is what we saw growing up. Daniel and I do everything together and I believe we always will.

“All married couples should learn the art of battle and of making love. Good battle is objective and honest, never vicious or cruel”

Sunny Says… Yeah!

Arguing is a part of growing; there is no way that you will agree with everything your partner says. There will be arguments; I guess I would think you were an abnormal couple if you said you didn’t fight or argue. But there is only one word that comes to mind and that is respect. When you respect each other then there is no way that you can hurt the other person with verbal abuse. I would never ever think about calling my husband a name or saying something that would hurt him. And he is the same-he has never called me a nasty name in any argument and I believe he never will.

“When a man opens a car door for his wife, it’s either a new car or a new wife!”

Sunny Says… Nah!
I was recently in a workout class and the instructor was saying how he saw this man not open the door for his date and then the instructor proceeded to tell everyone, “If you are with a man and he doesn’t open the door, you have my permission to punch him in the face!” LOL! I wouldn’t go to the extremes of violence but a man should open the door for a woman always. It’s common courtesy and chivalry. These things must be taught to all young boys. If your man does not open the door for you I am not sure he ever will, unless you decide to teach him. A woman should not have to keep a man on his toes …the man should be on his toes to be with us!

“A man in love is incomplete until he has married. Then he is finished.” 

Sunny Says… Nah!
First of all, if you are someone that thinks you are finished if you get married…then maybe marriage is not for you at the moment. If I was with someone who said that, I would have told him it’s not the right time to get married. Wait till the both of you are ready so that he/she understands the real meaning of marriage and love.

“Love – a temporary insanity, curable by marriage”

Sunny Says… Nah!
Yes of course when you are married love changes. I have this saying which I always say… “I love you more today than I did yesterday and I’ll love you more tomorrow then I do today.” I’m not sure who came up with this quote but fact is, when you are on a life journey then love always changes and you know more about the other as each day passes. For those who have had arranged marriages it changes immensely as you get to know each other. My parents had an arranged marriage – they met and were married in seven days. When my mother died my father said something I will never forget… As he cried, he said that their love was written in the stars. I know initially they did not feel this way but as the years passed they grew to love each other more than anything in the world. I believe my father died of a broken heart in the form of cancer so soon after her death.

As far as keeping the flame burning, communication is key to a healthy love life. Talking about your interests as years go by is a great exercise you can do. Maybe plan a date night just for the two of you with romantic gestures you both come up with. Each of you write a letter to each other and explain what things you loved doing when you met and what you enjoyed the most about that time. Maybe that helps rekindle that fire between the couple.
