Came across news of Russell Crowe refusing to divorce his wife of 12 years.
I find this news unusual. Mostly, because when was the last time you heard something like this.
It looks like Russell really cares for his wife and would really like to give another try to his marriage. I find it very inspiring coz you never get to hear news like this especially in the western societies.
The concept of marriage in a western society is very different than ours. For them it’s okay to date that starts right from the school which might cause some serious heartburn for girl’s dad over here.
Dating is okay over there and that’s how you end up finding partner for life.
It also does raise a lot of questions.
Like if you are dating from your school days and yes that also involves sex too, would you give all that up for that special woman/man when you can have all the fun and sleep around with anyone you want?
If you are married to the person you love, does it stops your urges of your physical needs or checking out the opposite sex to only wish and act on it after years passes by…
Let’s be honest, marriage asks for commitment when one forgets why they married when years passed by. Unless you can keep the love alive.
I wonder how it works out to stay loyal, committed in their marriages. Otherwise it’s pretty easy to stray outside marriage when lust lingers around you.
Divorce does no good to anyone including the children who carry the scar for the rest of their lives.
There are so many couples who give up too easily when it could have been worked out. Lives are then spent on what if?
It’s nice to see someone trying to work things out.
In the end, even if it doesn't, at least you know that you gave your 100% when you had the chance…
