Happy New Year 2019!
How about a toast for the New Year, a toast to good relationships and stronger families. This was absolutely absolutely inspired by a conversation I stumbled upon a few days ago on IG!
A little history behind the toast:
an author shared a parable where a wife caught husband cheating. As she turned to leave, he asked her to listen to him. He then proceeded to explain, that he found what looked like a homeless young woman on a side of the road. It was raining and windy, he felt sorry for her, picked her up and brought her home with him. She was hungry, so he fed her food that he made for his wife ( but the wife didn’t eat); she didn’t have clothes, so he pulled out he jeans he bought for his wife ( but wife said they were the wrong size so she didn’t wear them) and a sweater that his sister gifted to his wife ( but wife never wore). And as he was seeing the girl out, she turned to him and asked “is there anything else your wife isn’t using that I could have?”
So... he took the girl to their bedroom where the said wife later found them in the act.
The moral of the story the author tried to emphasize (as she explained) that intimacy is important, a woman should never forget about it or marriage will fall apart.
I won’t even start on a fact how much I disagree with that explanation, but!
With 2019 here, let’s toast to relationships where BOTH people take responsibility, to partners who value each other regardless of circumstances and marriages where both spouses can speak their mind freely, be understood and loved!
I am curious, what do you, guys, think about this scenario above? Sure, a parable, but I am surprised how many women think in support of a man here and blame the woman for happening.
I’m definitely of a different mentality, what about you?
