Don’t Marry Your Equal. Marry Someone “More” Than You!

Is Your Wife Your Equal?

In one of the lighter moments of one of my seminars, a student asked me if my wife was my “Equal”. To which I quickly replied: “No. She is more than me” Of course, the whole classroom erupted with people gushing with corny delight.

The seminar that I was conducting believe it or not was about finance. Naturally, in finance I talk about my ultimate love for my wife. Sure, it makes sense right. Ha ha ha, well, let me rewind a bit and connect the dots for you.

“Who you marry is one of the most important decisions you will ever make if you want to be a success.”
This is not just my belief, but also the belief of one of the wealthiest persons on earth, Mr. John Gokongwei.
Quoting from an article by Wilson Lee Flores, Gokongwei says to him: “Marry a good wife…having a good wife is not only good support for life and career, it’s great to come home daily to good rest. He revealed that ever since he got married, he has stopped going out to parties and stayed at home every night with his wife.”
For the women reading this, it goes both ways, you also have to pick “Mr. Right”. I know, not as easy as it sounds right? Especially since I’m already taken (ha ha ha). Seriously, your “husband to be” or your “husband forever” (and you) hold the key to unbelievable wealth.
Happiness is part of Wealth.

One of the reasons why I am Wealthy is because I am happy, and I am happy because of my marriage. Let me share my secret to why that is: It is because I’ve always believed that I married not just the right person, but a person that is MORE than me. If I am smart, she is smarter. If I am kind, she is kinder, if I am lucky, she is luckier. And it goes both ways. My wife believes that I am MORE than her as well. And because we think that way, we treat each other with more respect, love and gratitude. We have known each other now for 15 years, married for 11 and up to now we never fail to say thank you, I appreciate you, and I love you every chance we get.

It Only Takes One Person To Make All The Wrong Things In Your Life Right.

Believe it or not, finding the best career was my second priority, my first priority was finding that one person that I was destined to spend the rest of my life with. Okay, I know it sounds very corny and cheesy, don’t worry, there’s more. I always felt that I looked like “Aga Mulach” (but a little more handsome) in the sense that I had the “looks” but could never get the relationship right (This was before Aga met Charlene Gonzales of course) because women always took advantage of me, treated me awful or was simply not the right fit. So when I met my wife, I instantly knew that she would be the one. She was “home” to me and she made all the wrong things in my life right.

If it is not yet obvious by now, I am absolutely in love with my wife. She is the person who saved me from myself, multiple times from the day we met to this day. She molded me to who I am, and like the Jack Nicholson movie “As Good As It Gets” She makes me want to be a better man.

Love Requires Work, Sacrifice…and well…Love

But of course, like everything great and worthy in our lives, it will never come easy. Finding and maintaining your love for each other requires work, sacrifice…and well…love. While I believe that there is one person for you in this lifetime, I also believe that it is not just about fate or destiny, it is also about quarrels, heartaches, disagreements, tantrums, misunderstandings and all the bad stuff that comes along with caring for someone. Love is not just about comfort, it is about discomfort and the ability of both of you to overcome your differences. My wife and I fight every now and then simply because we care for each other deeply and passionately. It is a healthy thing to have but one thing that we don’t do is to NOT resolve it by the time we sleep.

Happy Valentines To You and I Wish You A Love As Legendary As Ours.

As you might still be wondering why I chose to write about “Love”, it is partly because we just celebrated Valentines day, but mostly because I am happy where I am in my life, because I married my wife, someone who is more than me in every possible way, and my wish for you is you find and work to make your relationship with your partner as legendary as what I have worked hard to have.

Until the next article, good luck, and God bless.
