I am dying to ask 2 people on my FB friends list if they are having issues in their marriages. Recently, I was surprised to see 2 married couples unfriend their spouses on FB and suddenly delete all their photos together. I was sad and surprised they are having huge issues within 2 years of marriage. To top it, it was a love marriage and they have known each other for quite a while. What surprised me even more was how so many other people did not notice this at all. One part of me wants to ask them directly on what’s happening and another part tells me to mind my own business. I cannot think of a single non-offensive way to politely ask them if they are having issues and it is not like we are besties. I admit I am nosy
at times most of the time. If their marriages are really falling apart, this is the fourth time* –
- I have known a marriage to fall apart in the past 2 years.
- where the marriage was less than 2 years old.
- where the couple had known and dated each other for more than 2 years.
*The third and fourth were someone I knew here.
All this makes me wonder what went wrong and it is sometimes scary. Didn’t they have more time to know each other when they dated for quite a while? Relationships seem to be so fragile and need tender care. At the same time, it is nice to know that separation is
no longer a little less taboo and many women do not feel the need to stay in relationships that don’t seem to work for them for whatever reason.
