arranged marriage. i know they still exists
adulterous thoughts or defense mechanism?
You said so much in so few words. It stopped me in my tracks.
Just the thought of it makes me go cold. Sad.
Now that makes me want to slap somebody. YIKES.

Arranged marriages are unfortunate, but it seems much like accidents that leave you crippled; though you may not have much choice in the matter, you do still have control over your reaction to the new situation... given the choice between making the most of it, and staying positive, or falling into depression, denial, and rebellion, which would you choose?I know which one would make me happier.
You can never silence a dream, can you, no matter how old.Heartbreaking in its truth.
Thanks to:Old Grizz; there's only one loser.Asleeponmyfeet; happiness is relative...I saw a TV prog about a girl, married at 12 - divorced at 15...Aspiemom; For some, who have to live the nightmare, dreams are all there is.
A sad but well done haiku!
Thanks Tammy; Inspired by a TV programme I saw recently.
