Engagement on X'Mas day ..
On Christmas day a few decades ago (wow!) , I got engaged to you-dont-know-who. It was quite meriah albeit a bit solemn as Mak wasn't around then. Had hinted to Mak about the majlis two years earlier. She seemed elated but Allah loves her more, she was never meant to witness it, sob3.
I was married to you-still-dont-know-who 4 months later AND we live happily ever after ... ("you hope my dear, you hope" .. as uttered by you-know-who in the perfume advert. Hahaa, ngaderlah si Mawi tu..).
To be able to live happily ever after you need to have lots of ............? Should you ask me for tips, I would just say it is plain qada' and qadar. Afterall, there is no such thing as 'live happily ever after' except maybe in 'life after death', insyaallah. Itu pun kalau..?
A friend of mine shares her 'bereavement' with me. She feels empty and has totally lost trust with her hubby though there is still a bit of love left. Her final say is that she doesn't mind to live alone but she is still living together for the children's sake.
And yet there's another friend who's having somewhat the same dilemma. She feels empty, ridiculed and not appreciated. She stays on for the sake of her children.
Oh well .. life is such ..
