Marriage Day

Two affairs differently related.. One in cloud nine whereas the other in a sad condition...

The one in cloud nine are two happily married couples.... their marriages are not "itchy"... in fact nothing is wrong, just that the man from couple A likes to date the lady in couple B. Life is bliss for both of them.. come what may, as long as they are happy just looking at each other...
Isn't marriage life funny at times?

The second scenario is about a man clinging on to two ladies, one his wife and one his girlfriend. He doesn't want to lose both, neither does his girlfriend wanted to let him go too. Wife is in dilemma.. should she divorce her husband or should she stick to him for as long as she lives? When she thinks of the money he has, she doesn't want to let go.. but when she thinks of his two timing ways, she wants to sign the papers soonest!
Isn't marriage stressful at times?

Moral of story: A happy marriage doesn't mean that husband and wife will be faithful to one another at all times.. but then...
here is an example of a happy marriage...

How many of us can have this 50th year anniversary
and still loving each other???

  2. Hello there ReanaClaire, thanks for visiting recently.

    I have thought about this question before. That why men just can't help being itchy most of the time haha! 1.Perhaps they are looking for excitement, 2.perhaps they are sex addict (like Tiger Wood), or 3.perhaps there are just too many women of his kind around.

    I reckon most probably reason #3 fits best. Let say a Chinese couple move to Zimbabwe. All the ladies are all black black lah. Then that Chinese man will definitely not look for a woman there. So, that husband will be faithful all the time :o) hahaha! Just for a laugh. Though I think it makes sense to me.

    Thanks again for dropping by.
    PS: Love your food blogs. They are making me hungry.

  4. Ours will be 55 this coming July. And sure there have been a few times when I have felt like hitting him up side the head with a skillet and I'm sure he has felt the same. But we both know that neither one of us has ever cheated on the other. Mainly because we did and do love one another and never had any reason to want to. Of our five children, three have been divorced, one of the three has been twice. One was thinking about it, but changed her mind and another never married but has had a partner for 12 years. So a Father and Mother being married 50 years or longer does not mean their children will be.

  5. i think only when it happens to the victim, the person concerned can understand, or forced to accept the situation.

  6. Oh.. I'm looking forward till this day if I'm lucky enough! I do believe in faith. I've seen just so many... god gave them wealth & a perfect home but in return god taken away something in exchange. And some, god gave them a child that they've been longing for and taken away the wealth. There always someone doing something up there!

    Well, nowadays it's not easy to maintain a marriage where money and lust are the greatest obstacles.

  8. OI! Why lah? Why you and Eugene post this kind of topic lately lah??? But I have the HELP that is needed for this kind of scenario Claire. I have just posted it in my blog. It's a questionnaire and people with this 'itchy-ness' should try it :D

  9. wow, 50th year of marriage.what a blessed. I think love will be forever esp. when you put God in your relationship.

  10. Hhmmmm...I have been divorced having survived a very bad marriage and have since been happily remarried.

    I do strongly believe in sticking out in a marriage but if there is no more love or things just better off apart, then the last option is divorce. I really hate divorcing as it felt like I did not try hard enough. Well, that was what ex used to make me feel but again, I strongly believe in LIFE PATH.GOD KNOWS BEST.

    hugs,
    shakira

  11. fiction, right?
    It is funny to think and read about troubled marriages, when it comes to reality, it could hurt badly...

    I like the style your story is told,
    simply language, elegant job.

  13. One woman is already giving me a huge headache. LOL :D I will never ever betray my wife. If I have the time I would rather do what I love. :p

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm only halfway there... Btw, who's the couple? Your parents? And how come you never mention your hubby in your blog (or maybe you did in your early-early posts, then I wouldn't know). Marriage is giving and forgiving...or else it will never last.

  15. patty: u r really a humorous lady! knocking his head with a skillet.. ouch!! anyway, your marriage has been good, that is all that counts.. God's blessings for a healthy marriage.. 55 years is a long time! :p

    chrisau: so u better sang sing, huh.. wife is for keeps... no eye washing too! hahhaa...


    mylittlespace: i do believe God only gives us the best, it is only we humans who make the wrong choices... What He knows we could endure, He allows it to happen..

  18. Well I was married for 22 years when I divorced and it was a long, hard journey to that point. I never ever thought it would happen to me. Now I am very happily remarried and give thanks each and every day that I had another chance at happiness. And to be wed 50 years is wonderful!

  19. I dont think i can make it to my 50th anniversary,for by then i would be 80 years old,,,,so i look forward to this year anniversary and the next and the next and the next untill it slips away.

    I am always intrigued with why people divorce, weren't they lovers
    didnt they say i cannot live without you, you are my moon,my sun and my everything.

    why things change after marriage ?, i guess this is a subject by itself,we learn from elementary to university in marriage.

    True story of a lady friend of mine, she divorced her husband because her husband suffered pre-E, things can be solved she reckon but the husband's pride refrain him from seeking medical attention, after 11 years of marriage she could not take it, file for divord ,viola she is happily married now.

    You see, there is really no wrong or right as far as love is concerned,,,,,,,take care,,,

  20. Too much for me to say. But... one thing should be kept in mind. While marriage is made in heaven, we are on earth. It takes two to work things out. And one have to remember that growing old together is a privilege, not a burden. And like Tekkaus would say... "TAK NAK" to infidelities.


    @ Chris... walao.... say me until so bad liddat.... *grumbles*

    eugene: what u said is very practical.. each day is like a blessed year.. treasure the moments together and not take each other for granted.. how i wish i could turn back the clock..


    cleffairy: good Tak Nak to infidelities.. hahaha.. u tot of anything, girl.. very creative mind. Many said marriage is a journey to walk along together, the roads can be smooth and at times rough.. hahaha..that is all i can say.. Happy Journeying!!

  34. To me, you get married just to have children, if not why bother getting married? : )

    ReplyDelete
  35. @foongpc... not everyone get married to have children. There are some people who gets married because of companionship and for the fear of having to live a lonely life. Not everyone gets married to have children. Some love goes deeper than merely to satisfy the need to reproduce. Let's say you get married, and your wife can't give birth... den wud? Divorce her? That's rather shallow to me.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Life is complicated and so is marriage.

    ReplyDelete
  37. foongpc: might as well get a surrogate mother..hehehe.. no need to marry also..
    marrying to one another means both man and lady love each other and wanted to stay together legally, whether they want to have children or not is another matter.. :)


    cleffairy: give me a high 5... *plak* yeh!!!

  38. My Mom once told me that a wife could tolerate the vices of a husband ie gamble, drink, smoke, murder and even the occasional ONS...but can never forgive her hubby having another woman. Is it true for you?

  39. a beautiful picture of happiness.. i wish we will live to celebrate our golden anniversary as well :)
    cherrrrrss :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. rose: actually not complicated.. through an understanding of both partners, a marriage is simple.


    gratitude: for this moment, i dont think i can accept my spouse having another woman.. but then when we have aged, i m not so sure whether i will resort to divorce or not.. if i m still young and looking good, i will surely separate..hahaha....



    nc: yes, hope many couples would too..

    ReplyDelete
  41. sigh... marriage... can be such a wonderful, yet at the same time, a scary thing...

    i'm still so young in this marriage thing, still so many more years to go... not sure what to expect... hopefully it'll be a happily ever after, of course =)

  42. yanz..dont worry so much about it.. live each day happily and treasure each other..

  43. 50 years? in love? that is the ultimate dream. congratulations!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. i cant quaranteed to anyone or to myself i stick with my wife forever.anyday,next week or even tomorrow i might meet my "dream of my lifetime's dream" and then younno lah.my wife,she's also a human and who knows - vice versa.at times,i think if theres any affairs,sometimes it can works out fine in the end, when either party just "cheats" each other for a period of time and then things just heals up automatically - it happened.i witnesses such case and that happened to my uncle and aunty.at the end,they got back together.of coz,it may not works for everybody.

  45. marriage has its ups and downs n it's always best to give and take.

    ReplyDelete
  46. @ Claire... yeah, high 5. You're so right. If it's just a child you desire and not the mother, ur better off paying the surrogate and tells the woman to buzz off.

    @Gratitude... I agree wif your mum.

    ReplyDelete
  47. shadow: yes., congrats to them.. not me! hahaha.a..


    ah ngao: of course anything can happen but if u dont harbour that feeling in u, then u wouldnt even think of it.. a marriage needs effort from both parties.. well, tough but that is how it is! :) hope u pak tau to loe!


    wenn: give take and there will be less divorce..but see what to give and what to take also :)


    cleffairy: or adopt one and buzz off? hahahaha...

  48. In reality, life is never as beautiful as we expected after marriage. That is why many couples choose not to get married nowadays. For those happily couples, the are very blessed.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hello ReanaClaire. How interesting to see my parents' photo on your blog. Looks like you missed the actual kiss too! My son who was also snapping away missed also =)

    Marriage has not always been smooth going but it is a commitment. It is more than a contract, it is a covenant. For the record, my husband and I have been married for over 27 years, and each year has been better than the previous one.

    Blessings =)
