Memoir Monday 01: Commitment

Wifespeaks: Memoir Monday

It's the first Memoir Monday over at Wifespeaks. When I saw the theme, HAM OR EGGS immediately came to mind. So I won't be posting pictures of our wedding anymore. And since I am too lazy to look for a picture of ham, i'm using a picture of pork food instead.



Commitment is all about being a pig, not a chicken. A chicken gives of itself but it stays the same (and alive). A pig, however, gives itself. Totally. Irrevocably. But since it's in poor taste to ask, "Are you chicken or pig?", we ask instead, "Are you ham or eggs?"

Marriage is a lot like being ham. Sure, you stay alive, but you are transformed. You become someone new, something new. You cannot say you're just going to give a part of you, because you have to give all of you. And if you married the right person, you become someone better, someone more valuable. Because now you are not just a person, but a member of a sacred institution. Later on, you may even become a parent, and thus affect the future.

I like to believe both hubs and I are hams :) The choicest cuts of hams! :)
