Unveiling a Tale of Unrequited Love
In a realm of silence, devoid of any response, a desperate cry echoed, “Please, marry me.” However, lacking the courage for a legal union, she was fatigued by worldly affairs, yearning to escape, avoiding further deception or betrayal.
The Whispered Judgments
People spoke shamelessly, deeming her an odd girl for expressing her desire for marriage. Yet, only she or her higher power truly understood the reasons. The man she longed for, seemingly indifferent to her existence, suddenly proclaimed, “I deeply respect you. I am here for you in every hardship, dispelling your loneliness. If not love, then what is it? Yet, the innocent girl responded, “I cannot live that life. I choose to live with you always, to be with you in life and death. I will reside in your marriage.”
The Compromise and the Heartbreaking Revelation
The man, in a desperate plea, admitted, “I am compelled. My engagement is fixed; I cannot marry you. I will marry the girl approved by my parents. You should abandon these dreams; it’s enough that I will be with you.”
Love vs. Conformity: The Ethical Quandary
Is love enough, even if against societal norms? Is it permissible to go against the wishes of parents for immediate satisfaction? The focus shifts to parental decisions—why? Why is it always the girl who faces scrutiny? Was she naive, not anticipating a time when her world would crumble?
Unraveling the Tragedy
Lost in unrealized aspirations, she wove dreams, eyes wide open to the harsh truth. Deceived and burdened by ephemeral relationships, she walked a path of shattered dreams. The realization struck—his commitment was so minimal that he couldn’t fathom the girl’s desires and sincerity.
A Plea for Respect
If he couldn’t commit forever, why permanently abandon her? Don’t ruin someone’s life. If unable to provide everlasting companionship and fulfill relationship duties, refrain from using the term “love.” Love is not synonymous with coercion.
