Post-Marital Grief #writebravely

“I didn’t know that you are such a fool!” the newly-wed bride told her husband.

“Why did you marry me?” he asked.

“They told that you are a king and are very rich! You are neither!” she grieved.

“You should have talked to me when I had visited your home to see you.”

“But, you were so quiet and gave only one-word or one-line answers. They said you are very intelligent and have gravity.”

He didn’t tell her that it was his plan.
"Blessed is the man who, having nothing to say, abstains from giving us wordy evidence of the fact." – George Eliot
“You could've found out for yourself. Choosing me was your decision. Now stop the blame-game and grief!”

  1. Hahahaha. Her choice whether she wants to continue grieving. Better option will be to discover what type of person he really is. Who knpws maybe he is 'the one' for her.

  2. A king and rich - perhaps this bride needs a lesson in humility!

  3. will this marriage last?

  4. I am curious to know her decision

  5. Wonder how she will decide her next course of action!

  6. Is it a case of undue expectation or case of cheating? Both sides carry equal weightage. Wonder where this marriage will head to.

  7. Someone marries because he is a king and rich ?? He could still be intelligent!!

  8. I think she should give him some more time. To me, her husband seems to be an intelligent one :D

  9. I pity her for her naivete!


Your words mean a lot to me.
