Love is forever
Just finished a conversation with a friend of more than 10 years.
Love is rubbish. There is no such thing as forever. Love today doesn't promise love tomorrow simply because people change. You cannot avoid it, neither can you predict when it will hit. Sad it is, but love is like a fairy tale. Every girl's dream, so near, yet so faraway. Fairy tales don't exist, besides, you can't dream all day long. :P
Marraige is not a necessity anymore. Because, people do make mistakes and people can get married for the wrong reasons. For some, even in the face of problems, refuse to acknowledge it, sinking deeper and deeper. A piece of paper is definitely worthless compared to your own happiness at stake.
I'm watching 2 drama serials now that I have all the time in the world. Soapy drama serials....
In one, a business man father values his "face" so much..he swears to do everything he could so that the wedding will carry on. In another, an ever understanding father said this to his daughter when she wanted to call off the wedding. His explaination to all who knew, was just a one time effort. It is nothing compared to a lifetime of happiness for his daughter.
The runaway bride, I call it...it happens in everyday life too...
People also love for all the wrong reasons. Out of gratitude, out of responsibility and of course, for love....For all these wrong reasons, no one will ever know it, except for themselves. Some choose to live in denial while others simply live with it. Its a choice each of us make. No right or wrong but for better or for worse, we'll have to bear the consequences till death do us part.
