A friend of mine told me that he just got divorced. I was shocked. Okay, only a bit. They were married a good 3 years, But he told me that it was mutual. Both sides decided that it was for the better. He said they were compatible, yes.. but the love just wasnt there.

I really thought they were in love long before that. Not too long, maybe 2 or 3 years but i guess that period was enough for a couple to get to know each other before deciding to tie the knot. Then, he said that they maintain the friendship, and in fact their relationship now is much better than when they were married. so, maybe they are better off being "just friends".

His tears were rolling down as he pronounced the divorce, witnessed by family and the judge. But he was feeling relieved at the same time.

Whatever love is, once you are married, You must learn to love. it’s the same as our family. you don't get to choose our parents. they’re just who they are and you love them because they’re family.

To me, my husband is everything. Of course it takes some time to learn about each other. You learn the do’s and dont’s. Yu learn the likes and dislikes. and you are willing to learn because you want to make the most out of it. You know that this is the person you’re gonna spend the rest of your life with.

So, to me a divorce shouldnt happen just because you "fall out of love". cherish it. it can be done. whether you want it or not.

What do you think about?
