Marina & partner. It specifically said Marina & partner. Where on earth am I supposed to find an eligible and strapping male partner for this weekend?
As much as I get thrills when two people in love getting married, I do get a little apprehensive – Theres so many factors that contribute to my dislike of attending wedding functions.
Like expectations of people looking at me as a single malay female. They’ll see that I’m of that ‘marriageable’ age and then they’ll start their talk of how I should get married as soon as possible. And then chide and scold me for still being single.
I’m rather sick of that. Why should I please you for something I’ll live with for the rest of my life?
But secretly, I do want to get married and care for a partner and have kids. I do want to share my life with my significant other. I just dont like the idea that I have to be obliged to do something, just because of social propiety.
But coming back to my colleague’s wedding, maybe I’ll just go to the wedding alone. She’s a friend and it would of course be lovely to see her on her most special day 🙂
