Actually this is an impromtu post, didn't plan to write this for sharing but i thought it was kind of funny and a bit of thought provoking as far as marriage, affair, children and divorce was concerned, so here goes.......................
Met an old school mate over a coffee break, have not been seeing her for a long time now, married and with two wonderful children. As usual men and women our age, usually the topic of conversation would be revolving about family and marriage. She was sharing a story about her uncle and his 27 years old affair whose second woman happened to be his wife's old friend.
Her uncle is about 61 years old already, may be what people say is true, when we are old, we tend to see things differently and we tend to come to our senses and trying to make amends with those we have short changed, neglected or even forsaken and that's exactly what my friend's uncle did.
After 27 years, he openly admitted to his wife that he had been having an affair with her old friend and he intended to bring the second woman to Penang (she was in KL) and even he even told his legitimate wife that there was no need for her to divorce him for he was kind of sure that their children would object to it.
After 27 years, he felt that he had been neglecting her all these years, not spending enough time with her and she was most of the time alone in KL and she never whined about it and now he felt that it was time to repay her, therefore he blatantly asked his wife to accept his intention.
After 27 years, the legitimate wife did not even realize that her husband second woman was her old friend, the one even attended their wedding and the husband revealed that the secret liaison started when he was near bankcrupt and that woman happend to his white knight.
After 27 years, the wife was devastated and indeed she wanted a divorce but it was funny enough the children objected it and according to my old school mate the children did what they did because they knew the content of the 61 years old man's content of the WILL.
After hearing my good old friend's story, spur of the moment i asked her these three questions from a lady's point of view.
1) Would it make any difference to her if the husband admits to his affair as compared to her finding out by herself?
2) Would it make any difference if the affair is 27 months old or 27 years old ?
3)Would it make any difference if the "accomplish" is of a stranger as compared to your old friend?
P/S : What if God never gave us conscience.................
