The bride and the groom could not stop kissing after they exchanged regurgitated vows and we could not wait for them to be proclaimed husband and wife so we can proceed to the reception. So we can eat their food and guzzle their liquor. They honeymooned in an exotic island --so exotic that even the parasite that landed them in the hospital had an exotic name, but no worry they're in love. Sugar booger remember, in sickness and in health. Yes, I do. They ride on the rainbow. And then life hits them in the face. With twice the emotional upheaval as the preparation for the wedding, they're now scrambling to postpone the divorce. And hopefully stay alive in the process.
The above is a typical scenario of a typical life cycle of a man and woman in heat --which soon turned to hate. And what's even sadder is when they end the relationship obsessed with destroying each other. I knew of a woman who went to sleep comforting herself with a prayer for her ex-man to come back crawling and begging for her to take him back. "And I pray that he gets leprosy and be so broke." She says. Well, I can't help but wonder. "And would you take back a man with melted ears and zero bank account?" "Oooh, it depends." She raised her nose up in the air. It depends? Depends on what? If he still looks good minus his nose? Or how low he's crawled and how good he can make you feel by his begging?
At the start of a relationship we use words like, "he's the greatest, he's so good to me I won't know how to live without him." Then we find that we'll die if we remain with him--the ideal soon becomes an ordeal, so off we go and find a new deal. And there the cycle begins again. Or maybe not. Maybe I'm just jaded. But really, I still believe in love --that you should not give up on love, because love will take you to the finish line-- even if it makes you end up looking like this.
