I find it sad but true that a couple always has to undergo some form of squabble – to strengthen their relationship. Some say its cause too smooth a r/ship can get too boring after a while, while other feel that having some low moments to get through together do result in a stronger bond between a couple.
However, its also these moments when I feel like I’m losing grip of the relationship
Those close to me will know that I sent out a ‘SOS’ message last night for a last minute meet-up because of a huge squabble that took place. I don’t think I’ve ever walked out of my marriage home before. But there was a moment when I felt enough was enough – and all I wanted to do was just to get out of the entire nightmare.
I was absolutely thankful, and grateful that I had not 1, but 5 other pals who rushed from various ends of Singapore (quickly called to arrange something together) just to be with me. I may have done nothing but cried my eyes out, but deep down I was 200% comforted by their friendship & love. They were as neutral and objective as possible, and in no way judged me in what I did or was about to do. And I love them for that.
My initial plan of wanting to stay out for a few days failed miserably at the hands of my good friends. I did end up going home wee late. And I had to face the husband again. We talked.
It didn’t panned out as happy as most would have liked it (because he couldn’t continue talking after a while due to work commitments early in the morning), but if its pain and anguish to take me through this compulsory phase of marriage, I will tell myself that it’s all worth it.
