Every little girl’s dream is to grow up, fall in love and marry the one man whom she will have and hold, through good times and bad, till death do them part. Fairy tale weddings do come true, however, it is keeping the marriages that seem to pose a problem once the magical dust settles.

Marriage isn’t just a natural progression from fluffy cloud nines, or an escape route to ‘living on your own’. When you say “I do”, bliss and happiness do not simply fall into your life with a wave of a wand. Conversely, marriage is about the readiness to embrace the worst in couplehood and live out your wedding vows of ‘through bad times, bad health and poverty, till death do us part’.

Valuable life lessons we’ve learnt from watching cartoon movies

All fairy tale stories usually have a similar recurring theme in their animation movies. They usually involve a beautiful maiden, a male suitor, a baddie and definitely a happily ever after. Judging from all the children’s costume competitions that are so prevalent lately, it is easy to see that every girl has her own secret idol.
