Point of No Return: My Son's Marriage
You started this marital journey as a mistake;
Each of you has personal ulterior motives different if not conflicting from each other;
He took you for the reason of trying to correct the mistakes of his parents who had a broken marriage;
You took him purely for financial reasons, with your perception that he belongs to a well-off and high socio-economic status family;
Whereas you come from a big family who struggled hard in order to live and support yourselves in any way possible within your mediocre capability;
You never had considered nor had any idea of the kind of personality he got being a financially pampered eldest son between two siblings of doting parents;
You forgot where you come from and that you have no idea how he would inherently look down at people with low intellectual capacity much more coming from a big family who struggle to live; he knew it;
For him, you will just be one of the servants he had in his childhood;
But on the onset you both tried your best to make it right for the sake of your children;
He is two years younger than you;
At age 18, you made him a father of your first born;
Difficult times came your way;
He is not used to poverty and would never do anything to pick pebbles along the way in a hand-to-mouth manner of survival;
He studied instead and fed his dream by doing what he really wanted to do with a vision of getting rich as a result of his struggles;
But you got three little children this time who urgently needed to be fed;
So you did menial jobs just so the children can eat;
The gap between the two of you had started to widen;
He, in the dreamland with his intellectual companies;
You with the servants who struggled to feed the children in a daily basis;
He was enjoying;
You were complaining;
Though you grudgingly yet dutifully continued to do mundane things every day if only to feed the young;
You called him irresponsible which deeply hurt him;
He saw you as a shallow person;
You cannot see that one day he would succeed so you nagged him every day;
You started to gossip with everybody, with your friends, with your relatives about how callous and irresponsible your husband was;
Worse you included to destroy his family’s reputation;
And affirmed to yourself that you are unlucky in your marriage with him;
That he is the worst person you ever know; And destroyed his relationship with his own family by manufacturing lies against one another;
Then the time has come for him to earn his first million;
He succeeded in his dreams!
All of you benefitted from it;
The children are now enjoying an opulent life as well as you;
But the wounds in his heart had not healed;
He started to leave you and you both lived a separate life though he continues to financially support you;
My son cannot live in a loveless relationship with you;
Now he found someone new and you came to me;
What can I say?
I want my grandchildren to be happy without compromising my son’s happiness;
I have great mercy for you but I love my son most of all;
Your situation is now in the point of no return;
He found his happiness;
And what about your new baby?
Who is the father?
It’s not my son obviously.
