About a year ago I came to know that someone we know cheated on his wife. It was shocking. We had never heard/imagined such a thing happening in real life. All this seemed related to television and its stories. But when it happened, everyone was devastated. You can not imagine the vulnerability and desperation everyone felt. As much as it brought everyone together in difficult times, it broke a family from the inside.
The couple has been married for over 20 years, has three grown-up kids and has faced TOUGHEST of times together.
Now a year later … When when the wife thinks about what the happened last year, she feels helpless all over again. She tried real hard to make everything right so did the husband but the toll had taken over. How can you move on from something like this?
What the husband fails to understand is that why is his wife still upset? Hasnt he apologized a million times? Hasnt he shown he regrets it too? Hasnt he tried to make everything right? Then why isnt she moving on?
HOW CAN SHE? What husbands fail to understand is that typical desi woman of a reserved Pakistani family doesn’t go out to make boyfriends or find love. She waits for her parents to tie her to a man that she can make a complete home with. And when she gets married her husband becomes everything for her. He is the only man to have ever touched her heart and her body. And when he’ll do something like this … Max she can do is forgive. Not forget.
Wives give up their dreams, lives and time for their families and just expect their husbands to be there for them. Love them. Care for them. Be loyal to them. Nothing else. It’s enough. Is that too much to ask?
