Yesterday I learned...
- A couple who had wanted to divorce each other, is now trying to work on their marriage and reconnect.
On the basis that the husband had been philandering and been known to leach out her savings.
- A couple we knew since our college days is getting married.
Knowing full well, and having had witnessed him with our eyes that he had always been cheating for the last 10 years. And he also has another foreign wife.
I mean, come on, do these ladies seriously think they will ever change the spots of their leopard?
My first reaction?
Disgusted. It upsets me.
There's not an ounce of happiness I have for these people even though it's suppose to be a happy occasion as with all unions. I don't know what I should say to them. I feel uncomfortable as they put themselves into deeper sh*t. To me, it's like looking at another person, willingly getting sucked into the quick sand and I want to help them but I had to stay away to not obstruct the process.
I mean, what would you do?
Do you congratulate the couples and then feel horrible after? That you faked it, allowing them to think you "approved" of their marriage?
Or do you NOT congratulate them, ignore and go on with your own life, letting them think you're an idiot for passing judgment they don't deserve?
