In the 6 months of our marriage, the Mr and I have been byeach others side day in and day out and to say we’ve grown accustomed to eachother is an understatement. For instance, he’d started to get used to the A/C ( http://www.indusladies.com/forums/s...tion/170775-part-my-life-called-marriage.html) and had even stopped snoring, well most of the time anyway. he had also gotten so used to my baiting that he had long stopped biting them ( http://www.indusladies.com/forums/snippets-of-life-non-fiction/114190-tell-me-honey.html) ! he has also learnt better than to argue with me. ( http://www.indusladies.com/forums/snippets-of-life-non-fiction/138217-postmortem-of-an-argument.html) . well, for me, i have learnt to put up with his weird 'terms of endearment'! (http://www.indusladies.com/forums/snippets-of-life-non-fiction/146570-terms-of-endearment.html). So it’s but understandable that it’s a struggle and a half when I leave hubby’s side forthe first time as I make my way to another city for higher studies. Few nights before leaving, we lay in bed and were watchingTV when I realized I wouldn’t see him for a long time after and began to choke up. I understood that this wasn’t going to be easy for him either and I neededto be considerate about the emotional toll this would take on him. I turned to him and gently placed my hand on his arm. As the flickering light from the television reflected in his big brown eyes and he asked what was wrong. I contemplated telling him that I wanted to stay back but I chose to be strong for him. Brave me! ‘What are you going to do when I go?’ I asked with genuine concern. He turned and looked at the TV as he pondered. Perhaps I shouldn’t have asked him the question as it turned his attention to all the time we’d be spending apart. I bit my bottom lip and tried to come up with a topic changer when he finally turned toward me and gave this oh-so-touching answer: ‘I guess, I’ll be studying a lot more and………….(longgg pause)…….guess I ‘ll be sleeping in the middle too.” And did I not hear his ‘mind voice’ say gleefully…..” This part of my life is called happiness!” Talk about priorities! Blah! oh and i meant the 'sensitive' in the title sarcastically!
