Day 15: Marriage is not for Everyone


Yesterday, I had a surprise visit from my good friend. He came to check on my recovery and then we talked a lot – from friendship, ‘bromance’, marriage, relationship and commitment.

It is common in Asian family to make sure that their children will not stay single for good. Parents will make sure by asking, keep on asking, add some pushing and even arranged scenes of match making or blind date.

The objective is kind, not to let their children suffer alone in their old age. But sometimes, parents forgot that marriage is not for everyone. Some people choose not to get married. And some others were born that way.

I am a happy wife and I don’t regret my decision to get married. I have a great husband and we are matching up daily to walk the road together. There will be humps and bumps, but with two helping hands, we will be able to get through it.

To answer the question, can unmarried people be happy? My answer is yes – especially if they choose to be happy.


“I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition”
(Martha Washington)
