A couple had been married for 10 years, but they didn’t have any child. They stayed with each other and really hoped that they will have a child before their 11th anniversary. Their family and friends were pushing them to get a divorce, but they didn’t want to get separated, because of strong love between them.
One day, while husband was returning home from work, he saw his wife walking down the street with a man. They were looking very happy. After a week again, he saw his wife with same man. He saw them many times, roaming places with each other. Hugging each other.
One evening, while husband was returning home, He saw that man drop her off, with a good bye kiss on her cheek. The husband got very angry and sad.
After a hectic day at work, Husband was home. While he was holding a glass jug to get water, the phone rang. He received the call. As soon as he picked the call, voice came form other side saying, “Hello dear, I will be coming to your home this evening to see you as I promised, I hope..”
Husband hung up the call, before hearing any further. He thought to himself, “It was male voice, and I am sure it’s same person I have seen with my wife many times.” He thought he had lost his wife to another man, thinking that, glass jug fell from his hand and shattered into pieces, his wife came running to him and asked, “Is everything okay??”
In anger, he pushed his wife. She fell and wasn’t moving. Few seconds later, he realized that she fell on the broken jug pieces and a large piece has pierced her. Husband tried to feel her breath, heartbeat, but there wasn’t any. His wife was dead. He saw an envelope in her hand. He took it and read it. He was shocked by what was written in it.
It reads :
“My loving husband, words can’t express how I feel, I had to write down this letter. I have been seeing a doctor for over a week and I wanted to be sure, before giving you the big news.
Doctor have confirmed that I am pregnant. Our baby is due 5 months from now. The doctor I have been seeing is my long lost brother, whom I contacted after our marriage. He promised to take care of me and baby, and will give us best care without any fee. He promised to have dinner with us tonight, can’t wait for you to meet him. I had to write to you, because I am so happy. Thanks for staying by my side.
Your loving wife.”
Letter fell from his hands. At the same time, he heard a knock on the door, it was same man he had seen with his wife. He came in and said, “Hello, I am John, your wife’s brother…….” Suddenly, he noticed his sister lying in a pool of her blood. He rushed her to the hospital, where she was confirmed dead.
We should not be quick to judge other person. In Relationships/marriage, we should try to talk and clear things. Communication is key. We should not let our anger control us, because not everything we see or hear about others, is true.
