The Newlywed Games

Summary (150 to 300 words)

This could have been the typical love story: She was a woman searching for a romantic relation with a compatible person. She met herideal soul mate in the college and after they graduated, they decided to marry. However, this story is not like the others: She is an athletic and intelligent woman who considers the life as acompetition‒ in a good way. She considers him as good as her at everything she knows. This is why, for her, his husband is her lifelong “opponent”. And her husband thinks the same.
They compete in sportsand tasks of everyday life. For instance, when they were preparing their weeding, they decided to declare a contest: the winner would be the person who finds the best invitation. Other examples arebasket, cooking, Scrabble, etc but never salaries and stuff like that.
For them this kind of love is the best of their relation. They know some persons think competition in a marriage isdangerous but they trust each other and believe in their love enough for use competitions to make their love stronger.

Personal Opinion (Min. 50 words for 150-word summaries | Min. 100 words for 300-wordsummaries)

Nowadays it’s true that the less people know what love really is, the more chances of a marriage ending in divorce. But this article shows a different situation. In my opinion, theway the author and her husband love each other is based in equality and friendship. Furthermore, I truly enjoyed reading this article because it brought to my mind a passage of the bible that says“love is patient, love is kind”. For me, this couple is an example of persons that share their life and time with the person they love and doing together what they like and also what they dislike.
