I was making sandwich for my babies lunch when I saw this drama on TV.
'I Me Wed'
The title and the plot, is enough to make me weep! Plus, it's funny, hilarious and not to forget the moral of the story.
It's about Isabel, a successful unmarried woman who is not that young (she is infact 30), that had a pressure from people around her about getting married. The pressure goes on until the evening of her friend's bridal shower, and she decided to marry herself. She said, "Why I can't just be happy with myself, without a boyfriend or getting married?" and one of her friend said, "Why don't you marry yourself?" she smiled and said she would do it. Assuming she was joking, no one bother about it until her story was written in a Boston Daily Buzz, a blog that tells women what to do and everything. The moment her story being picked up by them, the whole country talks about it.
It's not a problem until she met Collin and she likes him. What planned as a small symbolic ceremony turned out to be a fully sponsored big wedding, and Collin found out about it when he saw Isabel on a talk show.
The point is, this kind of pressure happened to many women this days. If you're not married, you won't be happy. When a woman reach certain age and she doesn't show any signs of having a boyfriend or getting married people will start asking around, "Bila nak kawin?" That kind of question, usually makes a woman crazy! Do we have to get married because someone expects you to? Or you want to get married because you found the right person to spend your life with? Choose either one.
I think I know what my baby sister going through. I do understand how it feels.
To me as long as you're happy and you know how to take care of yourself, be a good daughter and that's enough. But what makes it worst are the parents itself. Most of the time, parents put the most pressure to the daughter. In this case, as a daughter we have to learn to handle it wisely. If you're not ready to get married, sit down with your parents and talk politely. Don't hurt their feelings. If you're getting married for them, what's left for you?
Think about it.
