My partner and I argue petty stuff like “Why did you take this jammed road?” to serious issues, like “Why are you always avoiding my family functions?”
From big ballroom dinners at fancy hotels to garden luncheons with performances by Chinese acrobats, I cannot afford to compete for ‘Wedding of the Year’, nor am I interested in doing so.
I had been romantically rejected by my friend, and a few months later, she wanted to start anew. I was conflicted, but what my mother said knocked me to my senses.
Even though I was expecting it, I couldn’t hold back the tears when the truth was finally staring me in the face. I cried at the restaurant where he broke the news to me, and all the moments in between.
There were nights when my dad would tell my mom that he would be busy working, that he’s going out with his friends and won’t come back for the night. Ever since we read that chat log, we knew that these were lies.
I’ve always admired their independence and strong will, but I can’t figure out one thing – why do they stay in their problematic marriages, even when their husbands cheat on them and marry other women?

I held his hand, cuddled him in his sleep, kissed him like we were dating. I cried the last night we spent together (while he was asleep, of course). I knew we would never date. But I didn’t regret a single second I spent in that weird limbo zone between dating and not-dating.
Breaking up can be hard. A bad break up can lead to regrets, essentially causing harm in the people involved but you broke up for a reason. Don’t let regret place you back into a relationship that’s failed before.
