my dearest suddenly popped this question, out of the blue.
I was thinking, for goodness sake, i am not even 30.
then i said: "for goodness sake, i am not even 30"
I don't do much of thinking. It's the guy thing.
dear: so tell me, for real, will you cheat when you're 40?
me: should i repeat? i am not even 30.
d: so, will you cheat?
m: are you alright?
d: ok, if you're presented with a very pretty gal, what will you do?
m: i'm bring her to meet you, the prettiest gal ever.
d: but beauty is not forever.
m: maybe not physically.
she took a deep breath and do her own things.
later on, i got curious and probed about those previous nonsensical question.
apparently, among the colleagues, clearly in her line of work, they got too much time at work and started a topic of "will guys cheat at 40years old?". One of her colleagues was saying no money, no babes and the other held on to the belief that money is not the factor.
Why 40? My dearest was saying I would be pretty successful by then, and with success, comes lots of uninvited bees. I believe she's having unnecessary emotional distress from unnecessary discussion in her lepak hours.
I told her,
Without her, my success wouldn't be a success.As a matter of fact, it is true.
Data in the Malaysia Community and Family Study 2004 by the National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN) revealed that “meddlesome in-laws” is the number one reason why Indian couples get divorced.
Incompatibility is situational.
Infidelity is a temptation.
The thrill of it drives you to it, money only catalyzes it.
Doing it is one thing, knowing your partner can achieve the same is another.
Think twice. Thrice better.
And so back to the big question:
Will I cheat when I am 40?I'm not answering the question, am I?
Clearly, my KPI is 0%.
