Love and Marriage
Couple of years later, woman confronts the reality that was painfully apparent to anyone, (though anyone verbally expressing it would be instantly labeled "jealous","cynical"-and worse).
That marriages that do not spring from the mutual decision of an already beloved couple to "go to the next level" have an extremely short life span-regardless if a divorce follows or not.
"Hubby" starts chasing skirt, and "Happy, proud Mom" starts wondering when exactly her life took a wrong turn and starts to feel trapped.
She then starts desperately to dial the number of old male acquaintances who faded out of the picture because someone who once grabbed your ass in a party does not belong to the new status the woman had envisioned for herself.
The typical conversation goes somewhat like this:
"Oh, hi Peter, it's me! Long time no see,huh? -TIM, GET AWAY FROM THAT!-so, how are you doing? Anything new in your life? Me, I'm-PUT THAT DOWN RIGHT THIS INSTANT.DON'T MAKE ME COME THERE!-oh, that kid will be the death of me!Well, me, I'm a mother now, did you know that? -PUT YOUR CLOTHES BACK ON, IF YOU CATCH A COLD I'LL KILL YOU WITH MY OWN TWO HANDS!-yeah, I'm happy, I'm happy, it's good, it's good. So, there I was sitting, all happy and stuff, and thinking "hey, I haven't heard from Peter for ages, we used to be so close! So..."
At that point in the conversation, anyone who has not hang up, changed phone number and moved to undisclosed location, deserves everything that will come his way afterwards.Or, to be more precise, they deserve each other.
