The wedding couple should share every minute of life together, during times of happiness and sadness, ease and difficulty, frustration and depression. Marital connection is the foundation stone of two person's lives. Over that foundation they build every second of their life, and a plan to guide their children in the proper path until they mature and step out on their own.
When two people of the opposite sex are united by marriage, they are responsible to each other for anything and everything, anytime and every time, anywhere and everywhere. Under no circumstances, should one disobey or disregard the other. Even in time of disagreement, a peaceful solution should be the only answer.
As long as both are going according to their religion, tradition and customs and abide by the laws of their society, neither should disobey or disregard the other Loyalty, honesty and taking care is all about a successful life together. No one should be dishonest or disloyal to the other. Mutual understanding and trust between both will bind the marriage together forever.
