I happened to be the witness of a relationship ending yesterday. A person, whom I know quite well, who got married few months back. I could see the joy of starting a new phase of his life when he was about to plunge in to the matrimony. I don’t know what went wrong but within a couple of months, things got sour and they decided to part their way.
it is their life and entirely their personal decision so I guess no one has any right to be judgemantal about it. But I felt bad, sad and disturbed at the end of which could have been a lifetime commitment. Committment to be there through thick and thin. Why people make a haste….
Not only the relationship of a husband or wife, I wish every other form of relationships be it between two friends, parents and children, colleagues, acquaintances should work smoothly. How wonderful this world would be if people make certain compromises to maintain the harmony. It might be easier said than done because a fire looks bright, warm and colorful from the distance but those who live with it can only feel the pain of the burnt. But still, life itself is a big compromise of several small compromises bundled together. I repeat once again that I am not being judgemental on that specific case but I felt that that couple hardly got any time to know each other before deciding to split.
Just a wishful thinking if only they had spent sometime to understand each other, maybe things would have worked out, if only they were advised to buy some more time by their respective relatives rather than provoked, the picture would have been different. I admit that these are just plain hypothetical equations I am trying to draw. But still I hope I am not being unfair in hoping that as far as possible nothing should be destroyed.
