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 na├»ve 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?

  1. Men always try to do things and help people. We don't tell women some things because we don't want to hurt them because we love them. What he did was wrong if he was in love with this woman and wanted to marry her. Another thing it could of been his mom who influence him to go a different route. Momma's boy, not me, do many things for their mother but realize they are not happy with that decision. I say this boy is not a man and needs to grow up.

  3. Boy did it to appease his mother. He knew dog gone well Girl wouldn't go for that BS. Unfortunately that is a growing story of many immigrants, especially in cases where the in-laws do not approve of the relationship. Women and men have to understand the battle of being in a relationship where parental satisfaction is a must. If his or her mama or daddy can't stand you, either work on bringing them over to liking you or hang in the towel, because 7 times out of 10, it's not going to end well. They will never respect what you build and always look for ways to under mind your relationship. Great talking piece BM.

    It's hard to please both mom n girl at the same time, but been honest to the girl would have helped.

What President Trump and Kim Jong Un Ate

The historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un continued midday Tuesday, as the leaders satisfied their appetites while holding negotiations with a contingent of advisers over a working lunch. The lunch, which followed a 45-minute one-on-one meeting between the leaders earlier in the morning and bilateral discussion with senior aides, was held at the Capella Hotel on Singapore’s Sentosa Island. It was far from an intimate affair, with each leader accompanied by a bevy of senior staff, according to the White House. Joining Trump were Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Advisor John Bolton, U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Deputy Assistant to the President for Asian Affairs Matthew Pottinger. Kim was accompanied by Kim Yong Chol , the former spy chief and one of North Korea’s chief negotiators, as well as Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho, former

Snapchat Slammed for Domestic Violence Meme Featuring Rihanna and Chris Brown

If Kylie Jenner ‘s stock-plummeting Snapchat rant didn’t make you delete the app, maybe this will. Over the weekend, Snapchat found itself in hot water after a now-deleted domestic violence meme featuring Rihanna and Chris Brown went viral. The meme, which was an advertisement for the app “Would You Rather,” asked users whether they would prefer to “slap Rihanna” or “punch Chris Brown.” Almost immediately, screenshots of the ad appeared on Twitter, with many criticizing Snapchat for making light of domestic violence. Is it just me, or is this ad that popped up on my Snapchat extremely tone deaf? Like what were they thinking with this? pic.twitter.com/7kP9RHcgNG — Royce Mann (@TheRoyceMann) March 12, 2018 Many considered the ad a mockery of Rihanna’s experience with domestic violence. In 2009, Brown was arrested and charged for physically assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna hours before she was to perform at the Grammy awards. Since the incident, Rihanna has spo
