Why Do People Seek Love Outside Marriage

Scribble and Scrawl

By Somali K Chakrabarti

Going a little offbeat from the usual kind of posts on this blog on the occasion of Valentine’s Day, when the idea of Love pervades the atmosphere and fills up most of the heart space, I present here a topic, the occurrence of which may not be as infrequent as we may think/want it to be.

This guest post is written by Sarbani Chowdhury, a Clinical Psychologist with the Indian Air Force. Sarbani draws from her experience of counselling couples who have been involved in relationships outside their marriage, and shares her observation on why people sometimes seek love outside their marriage.

What If

deefiftyone

What if you weren’t the worst person I ever came across in my entire life

What if your bad intentions had some good in them

What if you stayed

What if you had another side to you that I never knew

A nice side

A side that is not rude and disrespectful

A side that was sane

Human

Decent

Sweet

Loving

A side that was not you

What if you were not you

What if I’m going out of my fucking mind

What if you drove me crazy

What if I start thinking in a ‘what if’ kind of manner

What if you actually loved me

A tiny bit more

What if I deserved it

What if I was better

Prettier, smarter, nicer, a tiny bit more charming

Would it make any difference?

What if this was all a dream

Or a nightmare

Please wake me up

The Symbol of True Love-A Match Made in Heaven.

 

It is said that good things never come easy and great things require time, as masterpieces are never urgent. And such great things stay strong and tall for a very long time.

Life is a journey on unchartered areas, it is a map which is yet to be discovered and the only way to know what lies beyond this is to take a step forward.

We never know on this journey what happens; we don’t know who will meet us and whom we will meet.

 Some come in our life as a blessing and some as lessons, but every person is very important because all those people have played their part well in making us the person what we are today.

We meet many people in our lives and only a few remain with us till the end.

But once when people are meant to be together, no matter what they will be together till the end and such bonds are very precious as they are rare.

 It has been 23 years that you both have come together today and on the day when you met, neither of you imagined that you would be having a life together in the future. Maybe this is what destiny had in store for you. You had many ups and downs, many hurdles and many challenges during your life but no matter what and how anything happened, in the end, you both stood by each other crossing all the hurdles together, holding each other’s hand before entering into the new phase of life.

Gangishetty Rajendra Prasad, Gangishetty Krishna Kumari, you are the true symbol of love in our lives. Never let the smile escape from your face because the most beautiful thing we ever like to see about you is a smile on your face and we cannot bear to see you without a smile.

 You are our source of inspiration, our source of determination and our refuge in hard times. We learnt from you that life is not easy and so long as life is, there is a struggle and no matter what and how bad the situation maybe never stop believing in what you do and never stop loving your family. You both have been great parents, great teachers, and good friends to us. You are the most precious gift god has ever given to us and we can’t thank him enough for it.

We wish you a Happy Marriage Anniversary………………

You are the symbol of true love in our lives and this is the proof that it is a match made in Heaven.
