Marriage made both of them sacrifice. Their frequencies didn’t match still they tolerated each other for a long time and then one fine day, the husband met someone of his own kind. His heart failed to listen to his mind. Her eyes, her smile and her voice moved like a movie inside. How much ever he tried he couldn’t control her entry into his mind, she used to come anytime without any warning or signs which made him involuntary smile.
His wife detected something wrong in him; she tried to figure it out on her own will.
“What is it that makes him so happy?” she wondered.
Following and spying on him made her realize his attraction for some other woman. Surprisingly, she was neither angry nor sad; she just felt empty and blank. Over analysing the situation made her feel victimized. She knew that he was not her soul mate or for that matter even a mate but regardless she was ready to compromise her life and her happiness in the name of the marriage.
Their parents set them up together, fate tied them up together and they were thrown into this together so why should she be the only one to suffer? Along with all of this, how could she forget that this marriage also forced her to leave her studies and it brutally snatched her dreams trapping her inside this meaningless relationship. Also, the huge sum of dowry he took how can he justify it with his behavioural outlook? She knew that her worthiness was much more than the regular abuses he gave her.
Her head was pounding calculating all the sacrifices and compromises she made. She didn’t know what to do now, she felt as if she should stand up for herself now at least, to fight for what she wants and what she deserves. She never wanted such a life with an unfaithful husband and shattered dreams.
“I will not let this issue go this time, I will stand up and fight for my rights” she adamantly decides, but the question which runs in her mind is how will she do it? How will she get out of this trap and what about the notorious society which will naturally make her look like an accuse in all of this?
She didn’t know what to do and how to go about it, the right choice currently seemed was confrontation. She wanted to confront her husband, to talk to him and to know about his views and his feelings. She wanted both of them to get rid of each other.
Somehow, she gathered all her courage the next day and went to confront her husband. His reaction was something which was least expected; He showed no remorse or any regret. In fact it seemed as he was feeling quite proud about his infidelity. He laughed at her and mocked her. He was surprised that she hadn’t realised as of now that their marriage was just a lie, a lie for the society to cherish and enjoy.
He just gave her one reply, “You will be destroyed after leaving me, this world will never accept you as it is, so your choice.”
Her confused, lonely and insecure self then made her take decisions which in future she would regret.
Her mistake was that she decided to tolerate, to tolerate all the injustice thrown in her face as she found herself to be too weak and too alone to do something. Eventually her life ended just like that as she feared standing up for herself.
