Just last night I had a talk with a friend about bizarre and intriguing topic, marriage. It is bizarre because it started with a phrase that no married woman wants to say, “I feel that this marriage is…”, and intriguing because I did not finish the phrase. My friend would despise me for leaving the phrase unfinished.
In a country with many devout Catholics and divorce is not legal but legal separation is which is weird. And women stay in marriages for the sake of the kids or love or martyrdom, a marriage is only in trouble when the partner makes a punching bag out of the woman’s face or have practiced infidelity for 10 years. Men can get away with adultery but a woman is condemned for concubinage. Maybe, I exaggerated a bit or not!
Anyway, I am still new to this marriage thing; 3 years of union with my almost wonderful husband, life for us has only started. By the way, this topic is not about me. Neither about my friend I spoke to last night.
Today, I woke up feeling bright and fully loaded. I slept longer than the other night, I feel unnecessarily stressed in the City. I just learned today that my greatest life coach is getting married. I felt energized and suddenly jumped to my feet due to excitement. She is getting married! Yahoo! Preparations are underway. Exciting! I thought of the food, all the deserts and the drinks! I’m having food-gasm now! If that word even make sense.
I have gone astray. Going back, I know the greatest challenge is preparing herself for that day. Getting married is easy. Staying married is difficult. Getting married and getting out of it is costly. In retrospect, I cannot remember what I felt before I got married. Let me try harder and maybe I can write a whole blog about it. Haha!
Best wishes to the most influential woman in my life! 🙂
