“Officially I am…unofficially I am not” he said looking at her naughty and all smiley…
The girl started to laugh and then she said:
“I see…interesting view… well, I don’t care…for me you are out of the market…plus… I already have someone in my life… not looking for anything new… especially not an experience like this one… been there, done that… nothing special…sorry dude, but it ain’t gonna happen!”
She smiled back at him and then she left. She got on the next train and left. On the way back home, she couldn’t help thinking how frivolous everything is. How fragile and stupid the human being is. Especially the one who was waiting for this guy at home.
“How many they were? Maybe… few months or something… “ she thought and started to look out of the window, somewhere far, touching with her look the blue, clear sky… this guy was married just for a few months and he was proposing her to have intercourse with him .
Marriage… such a strong word and yet, it seems to be treated more and more just as a contract which has a lot of unwritten rules and unspoken truths that in the end define it just as it is: a legal way to make the unofficial stuff official. Like cheating your partner for example. Pretending to be happy. Showing pictures to the world with your happy family and then hiding your face under a wave of tears because only you know what a big lie you sell out there just to cuddle your own ego and sometimes your mind. But your soul knows better.
When you are just lover with somebody, cheating it’s betrayal… when you are married with someone and you’ve been cheated, he has a good excuse: you are married, so suck it up and move on or get a divorce. End the contract. But don’t be too surprised of the outcome. Of course he was going to cheat on you… what the hell did you think? That he will love you and be faithful to you till death will do you part? Well… you married the guy… did you check the small notes at the end of the marriage contract?
Wanted or not, the love part died like after 2 years or something after you’ve got married… you should have lived in an impossible relationship, unfulfilled one and maybe then you might have had a chance to still speak about love after… let’s say 5 years after your break up… in your case is just about survival in two. And that’s the way it is.
There are men very conscious of the fact that they can’t be good partners and they don’t get married with all the risks included, and there are men… well… there are men who make it unofficial… advantage? The second ones… they have a slave to take care of their children and of their basic needs too- food, sex and they have fun also… the last one, without the wife, of course.
Isn’t life just great? Perfect families. Perfect love. Perfect relationships. Everything is just perfect!
“Sad…” the girl said to herself… “so God damn sad…” She got off the train, she looked around, pressed the Play button on her phone and headed HOME…
It was a nice, warm autumn day…
