Is It That Complicated?
Girl meets boy, girl and boy falls in love. Three years into the relationship, boy proposes to girl. Girl says, “Yes but not right now.” She asked him to get his life in order before going to the alter. Fair enough, I would say.
Boy had few minor things in his criminal record but nothing he couldn’t work around. He also needed a stable career. At the time, he was unemployed. With few kind words of encouragement from her, he went back to college and ended up with a degree, four years later. With his record been cleaned for the past four years and his new degree, he was able to get a decent job that required him to work overseas for a year. That was not a big deal for the strong couple, they decided to tie the knot after he returns.
Boy went oversea, and like a gentleman, he kept in touch with the love of his life. He became a proud son to his mother; he took care of her and took care of his sweet love. Now, let me clarify something, the girl was awesome, very beautiful, with a good heart but she was not a saint. She had a passed. She was what they called, “the village slut”. To be fair, she didn’t become “the village slut” intentionally. She was a naïve girl, looking for love in all the wrong places. Men knew that about her and took advantage of her by promising her what she wanted until the sex was over. Over the years, she grew emotionally strong. By the time she met Boy, she was emotionally independent and stable, unfortunately, the repetition remained the same, and her passed follow her.
Even though boy knew her passed, he was still willing to take her to the alter.
After a year, boy returned back to the States. Few weeks later, girl started hearing rumors that the boy came back with a wife. When she asked him, he said, “It is a lie. Why would I be that ungrateful to you? You were there for me before I became somebody, I could never do that to you.” She believes him but the rumors continue. After a while, she got fed up and decided to ask his mother. This is what the mother said, “Why would my good son marry a slut like you,” and she hung up the phone. When the girl confronted him about what his mother told her, he said, “Ok, I will be honest with you. I did get married but it is not real. I was just helping out a friend I met oversea to come to the States. If the marriage was real, would I be here living with you and not with her?”
“If you are telling the truth, why didn’t you tell me from the beginning? Why didn’t you ask me first if I was comfortable with you helping her? Why all the secrets?”
Hmm, ladies and gents, what do you think? If he is telling the truth, what could be some of the reasons he kept it a secret from her?
