兩個好人為什麼沒有好婚姻(開啟婚姻幸福之路)

每個人往往都用自己的方式去對待對方,出發點當然都是想經營這段感情。

但是效果往往也不如期待,最好的方式就是在其中找到彼此得平衡點。

 

我的母親是個非常好的人,自小,我就看到她努力地維持一個家。她總是在清晨五時起床,煮一鍋熱騰騰的稀飯給父親吃,因為父親胃不好,早餐只能吃稀飯。然後,還要煮一鍋乾飯給孩子吃,因為孩子正在發育,需要吃乾飯,上學一天才不會餓。

 

每個星期,母親會把榻榻米搬出去曬,曬出暖暖的太陽香。每天下午,母親總是彎著腰,刷著鍋子,我們家的鍋子每一個都可以當鏡子用,完全沒有一點污垢。晚上,她努力蹲在地上擦地板,一寸一寸仔細地擦拭,家裡的地板比別人家的床頭還乾淨,打著赤腳也找不到一絲灰塵。我母親是個認真辛勞的好女人。

 

然而,在我父親的眼中,她卻不是一個好伴侶。我成長過程中,父親不只一次地表示他在婚姻中的孤單,不被瞭解。我的父親是個負責的男人。他不抽煙、不喝酒,工作認真,每天準時上下班,暑假還安排功課表,安排孩子們的作息,他是個盡責的父親,督促孩子在功課上有所成就。他喜歡下棋、寫書法,沉浸在古書的世界。

 

我的父親是個好男人,在孩子們眼中,他就像天一樣大,保護我們、教育我們。只是,在我母親的眼中,他也不是一個好伴侶,我成長的過程中,我經常看到母親在院子的角落中,暗暗無聲地掉淚。父親用語言,母親用行動,表達了他們在婚姻中所面對的痛苦。

 

成長的過程中,我看到、也聽到父親與母親在婚姻中的無奈,也看到、感受到他們是如此好的男人與女人,他們值得一椿好婚姻。可惜的是,父親在世的歲月中,他們彼此的婚姻生活都在挫折中度過,而我,也一直在困惑中成長,我問自己:「兩個好人為什麼沒有好的婚姻?」

 

(自以為是的付出)

我長大後,進入婚姻,漸漸瞭解這個問題的答案。在婚姻的初期,我就像母親一樣,努力持家,努力地刷鍋子、擦地板,認真地為自己的婚姻而努力。奇怪的是,我不快樂;看看我的先生,似乎他也不快樂。我心中想,大概是地板不夠乾淨,飯菜燒得不夠好,於是,我更努力擦地板,用心做飯。似乎,我們兩個人還是不快樂。

 

直到有一天,我正忙著擦地板時,先生說﹕「老婆,來陪我聽一下音樂!」

我不悅地說﹕「沒看到還有一大半的地方沒有擦!」

 

這句話一說出口,我呆住了,好熟悉的一句話,在我父親母親的婚姻中,母親也經常這樣對父親說。我正在重演父母親的婚姻,也重複他們在婚姻中的不快樂。有一些領悟出現在我的心中。

 

「你要的是?」我停下手邊的工作,看著先生,想到我父親…他一直在婚姻中得不到他要的陪伴,母親刷鍋子的時間都比陪他的時間長。不斷地做家事,是母親維持婚姻的方法,她給父親一個乾淨的家,卻從未陪伴他,她忙著做家事,她用她的方法在愛父親,這個方法是「做家事」。

 

而我,我也用我的方法在愛著我的先生。我的方法也是母親的方法,我的婚姻好像也在走向同一個故事「兩個好人卻沒有好婚姻。」我的領悟使我做了不一樣的選擇。停下手邊的工作,坐到先生的身邊,陪他聽音樂,遠遠地看著地上擦地板的抹布,像是看著母親的命運。

 

我問先生﹕「你需要什麼?」

「我需要妳陪我聽聽音樂,家裡髒一點沒關係呀,以後幫妳請個傭人,妳就可以陪我了!」先生說。

「我以為你需要家裡乾淨,有人煮飯給你吃,有人為你洗衣服…」我一口氣說了一串應該是他需要的事。

「那些都是次要的呀!」先生說。「我最希望妳陪陪我。」

 

原來我作了許多白工,這個結果實在令我大吃一驚。我們繼續分享彼此的需要,才發現他也做了不少白工,我們都用自己的方式在愛對方,而不是對方的方式。

 

(幸福的路徑)

自此以後,我列了一張先生的需要表,把它放在書桌前,他也列了一張我的需求表,放在他的書桌前。洋洋灑灑十幾項的需求,像是有空陪對方聽音樂、有機會抱抱對方、每天早上 kiss 拜拜。有些項目比較容易做到,有些項目比較難,像是「聽我說話,不要給建議。」這是先生的需要。

 

如果我給他建議,他說他會覺得自己像笨蛋。我想,這真是男人的面子問題。我也學著不給建議,除非他問我,否則我就只是傾聽,順服到底,連走錯路時也一樣。這對我實在是一條不容易學習的路,不過,比擦地板要輕鬆多了,而我們在需求的滿足中,婚姻也愈來愈有活力。

 

在我累的時候,我就選擇一些容易的項目做,像是「放一首放鬆音樂」,自己有力氣的時候就規劃「一次外地旅遊」這樣的事情。有趣的是,「到植物園散步」是我們的共同項目、共同需求,每次婚姻有爭吵,去到植物園,總能安慰彼此的心靈。

 

其實,這也可想而知,原本我們就是因為對植物園的喜愛而相知相惜,一起走入婚姻,回到園子就會回到多年前彼此相愛的心情。問對方:「你要什麼?」這句話開啟了婚姻另一個幸福之路。兩個好人終於走上幸福之路。現在,我也知道父母親的婚姻為何無法幸福,他們都太執著用「自己」的方法愛對方,而不是用「對方」的方式愛另一半。自己累得半死,對方還感受不到,最後面對婚姻的期待,也就灰心而死了。

 

既然上帝創造婚姻,我想,每個人都值得擁有一個好婚姻,只要方法用對,作「對方要的!」而非自己「想給的!」好婚姻,絕對是可預期的。
