Definition Of A Bride
A bride as defined by Wikipedia is a person about to marry, or a newly wed.
Brides are supposed to be happy and filled with joy except in few cases of forced marriage and the likes. But as far as you ‘willingly’ and ‘lovingly’ chose your groom, then you are a happy woman.
Brides spend a whole lot of time planning their weddings, because that what’s makes them go from bride to wives. So i guess no one wants to be a bride forever, but they want to enjoy the time they can spend as brides.
Brides do not have a whole lot of responsibilities until they become wives. Brides just spend time shopping, dictating and planning. Am sure you are already in love with ‘bridehood’,it is really a lovely time to enjoy. I wish we bridegrooms could enjoy that also but it is not possible.
Bridegrooms are meant to serve the brides and then continue doing more of that in marriage. The life of a man is always filled with responsibilities although the responsibilities are shared when a wife comes in.
So i would therefore say that women are quite lucky.
Okay, let us talk a little more about brides and their weddings.
