Is love really blind?


As usual I was loitering around the corridor in the evening and I heard a sob. When I looked around I saw her in the dark corner on the corridor, weeping. I have always seen her cheerful and hence was shocked to see her crying. I went near her to pacify her. Slowly she started talking to me, about the reason for her grief, about her loveless life, a long story of dating and marriage, and post-married days. She is married; an 8 year old love story and a marriage that almost separated her family from her, due to her incorrect (according to her parents) decision.

After hearing it I felt that both of them, she and the guy, were far-flung from reality, during the time of dating. Both of them could see only the best part of the other person. Literally blind love!

The guy is from a lower-middle class family that has not saved much in life. She is from a rich affluent family and the guy’s parents, who had their eyes on her wealth, showed them a green signal. But her parents were still not ready to agree for the match as the guy didn’t even have a good job. After a constant battle with her dear ones, she managed to convince her parents and half heartedly they agreed. As she had a job she was confident that she could manage their life until he gets one.

But problems started off soon when she realized the real intentions of her in-laws. Even her husband turned against her when she refused to hand over her jewellery to her in-laws, to buy a property. The drift grew wide day by day, with the active contribution of the cooked-up stories from her in-laws, separating them, and finally making the guy take up a job in another country. The love that was there had nearly vanished within a year!

Hey! Don’t you feel that this saas-bahu-pati clash is going on in the usual track? Yes, it is, because the next episode has a typical suspect-maniac husband who always yells at his wife, when she is spotted even with her brother.

And now, their 8 years long love story is about to reach the climax soon, with a suit in the family court; which is going to happen soon.

THEY SAY THEY LOVED EACH OTHER AND WANTED TO LIVE A BLISSFUL LIFE! THEN WHERE DID THEY GO WRONG?
