This post has taken ages to materialise… Experience is a good teacher…

Maturity is when you know that :

– its okay if the one you love doesn’t love you back

– your journey is yours and no matter how close people are to you, they have their own journeys

– love is mortal

– unconditional love is immortal

– listening seems worthwhile

– people are human at the end of the day; regardless of stature, gender, age, geography

– winning battles has no correlation to winning the war

– some things are not meant to be and its liberating and empowering to accept it

– empathy is the greatest virtue of all

– there is a reason that ‘now’ is called the ‘present’

– forgiving is easier than forgetting

– to cry is a show of strength

– in relationships, a heart full of love is more endearing than a head full of logic

– there are no free lunches

– charity is something that you do for yourself

– a smile can change your destiny

– true love makes you rise

– hugs work like people, the more the merrier

– gratitude is a worthy trait

– the body may not know but the soul knows, every darn time

– it’s okay to be the moon and not the sun; there is beauty and joy in both

– emotions are neutral, they make us human

And heaven help if there is a marriage at stake.

In this post, I am just addressing the issue of the husband being adulterous. Blame games aplenty, some typically standard stuff – he fell out of love, 7 year itch, 10 year itch, 12 year itch, she couldn’t control him, men will be men, she never gave him time, she was working, she is fat etc etc. It doesn’t really matter.

When the wife has gotten her share of sympathy and/or blame from friends, relatives, and neighbours, she is finally asked to confront, threaten, plead, beg for her husband – from the other woman. It’s so painful for me to hear that!

Wives, hear this: the other woman owes you nothing. Period. She is supposed to think of what she is getting out of this ‘unfortunately caught’ affair with your husband. Why would she think about you, or the kids, or the family?
