A true life event inspired this post. Not mine but of someone I know.
She comes from a rich family. She had everything she ever wanted. She’s the pampered one in the family simply because she is the only girl. Then she fell in love. She fell in love with someone whom her father did not approve. However, she continued seeing this guy as her mother still gave her approval although it was behind her father’s back.
Her boyfriend made it to a good working position and soon impressed her father and somehow they managed to get his blessing. All went fine until the boyfriend made one stupid mistake that ended his career and put his life in shambles. She remained loyal to him and kept the whole thing a secret from her family. Her father found out and demanded that she ended the relationship. She blatantly refused. Her father asked her to choose, her boyfriend or her family. She chose her love and left her family after being disowned.
Despite all the chaos and uncertainties, they got married. More problems followed because of financial matters. After three years, she swallowed her pride and called her father for assistance. Her father was pleased. He told her that she could have everything. A house, a car, even money with one condition. Leave him. Leave her husband. She cried and hanged up after saying no.
Such is love. Such is sacrifice. Would you have been strong enough? Would your love withstand all odds and remain steadfast?
I pray for her. I pray for all couples in love.
