Remember when you would spend endless hours on the phone with her, talking about anything and everything, your phone was always loaded, and in most cases you would ensure hers’ was loaded with call credit, just in case the network would not permit for voice calls, then you would easily switch to text messaging?
Remember how long it took you to work up the courage, just to meet her parents, and remember all the assurances of love and loyalty you gave to them, just to make them trust you?
Remember when you finally decided to propose?
Remember how you felt when she said yes?
Remember your wedding day?
Remember your vows?
Remember your wedding night? (wink)
Remember all those days when you couldn’t wait to get off work, just so you could rush home and be with her?
Remember how beautiful she always looked, even when she just got out of bed?
Remember how she listened to all your jokes, and laughed, even at the ones others never found funny?
Remember how she suddenly became a sports lover, just so she could share your moments with you?
Remember how she supported all your dreams and aspirations?
Remember when she was the “ONLY” woman you wanted and desired?
Now my dear friend, its barely two(2) years, and you don’t remember to call her, and tell her how much you love her, now you hardly remember to send her text messages, off course you still do send messages, but none ever get to her phone, now you don’t even remember to tell her how stunning she looks in that new dress, or how lovely her new hair do is.
Suddenly, she just doesn’t mean that much to you anymore.
Suddenly, you realize that she snores in bed, and always takes up too much space.
Suddenly, you begin to notice how she likes to “CUDDLE” too much.
Suddenly you realize she doesn’t cap the toothpaste after she uses it.
Suddenly you realize she is putting on too much weight, and it annoys you (even after baring you a child)
Suddenly you developed a sour taste for that egusi soup you always loved so much, and could eat for days without end, and you decide to adopt a new phrase “IS THIS ALL WE HAVE TO EAT IN THIS HOUSE”.
Suddenly, work becomes more tedious after normal working hours.
Suddenly, you prefer to spend most of your weekends with the “BOYS”.
Now, someone else is taking your attention.
Now you feel you have something better going for you.
Now you feel you have a more sophisticated woman in your life.
Now you feel you have a more submissive woman, to cater to all yours whims and desires.
Do you really believe this other woman is a better alternative?
Do you actually feel there is room for comparison?
Do you honestly believe your own lies and justifications?
You walk around with a ring on your finger, the other woman clearly sees this, she knows what it symbolizes, and yet she agrees to sneak around with you
She knows you have a family at home, and yet pretends to be your quantum of solace, she pretends to give you a safe haven from your self induced and assumed problems.
Ask yourself this simple question, if she is willing to run around with you, if she is willing to destroy the home you built with your wife, then what possible future do you have with her.
After all is said, and all the excuses are made, the bottom line is simple, all you get from her is sex.
Why go out for sex, when you can make passionate love to your wife, a woman who has given you her mind, body and soul, with no price tag attached to it.
Why don’t you see your wife for who she is, and in case you don’t know who she is, I’ll tell you, she is the woman you fell in love with.
So my dear friend, before you pick the easy route, which will lead you to more sorrow and pain.
Try to remember your wife, who she was, who she is, and who she will always be to you.
