55-I Have Lived An Independent Life

As a wife,
I have lived an independent life.
I paid my own tuition fees,
I earned my own degrees.
I have my own bank account,
In addition to our joint account.
I fully respect my hubby in reality,
I never doubt his loyalty.
No stalks,
No angry talks.
We become the happiest married folks.

*****
Write a poem that is fiction in 55 words. Give it a try and notify G-man at:
http://g-man-mrknowitall.blogspot.com/2010/05/friday-flash-55_13.html

This poem is close to my real life. I spend ZERO time questioning or monitoring my hubby, what's the point? We have two boys, I don't think that anyone can break my marriage. I encourage him to make as many friends as possible. Outside home, everyone wears a mask, it is natural that people are more friendly, but back at home,
everything is real, I know him and he knows me, we make a perfect family!

Independence is vital to growth and self esteem.

I'm really laughing--WITH you, not AT you, believe me!

You wrote (above):

"We become the happiest married folks.

*****

Take a look, do you not agree--funny, of course everyone knows what you meant!

And it is a QUITE nice "55", one I may copy and share around. Thank you Jingle! (I would credit you, naturally!)

Though my husband and I shared a lot, I am glad I had my job, my own bank account and my own ideas about a lot of things and so had he. Great poem, Jingle!

JStar said...

This is so great Ji! Why check up on him because if someone wants to do it, they will...Whatever is done in the dark eventually comes to life....Why stress myself wondering what he is doing, I am too busy doin me :) One day I will have a relationship like this...When that time is right :)

Wings said...

Quite awesome, Jingle.

I feel the same way about me and my Mrs. :)

Jingle said...

I have been married for 18 years,
I am 41...Thank you all for the positive feedback...U Rock!

Prayer Girl said...

No twists or turns in this 55. No surprises. They are not needed. This 55 is perfect just exactly the way you wrote it. You are a very lucky lady.

Dom* said...

Independence shows you are positive of finding the being you truly are as this is your Enlightenment and whatever comes your way you will understand it is a trial that vanishes well because of your Onenness in being...my hat is off to you in this endeavour...enjoy as well and Happy Friday also(+)

Re: Anonymous

My husband works as a professor in university, for 6.5 years, we work at exactly the same building...
he teaches college students, he has to be an adviser to graduate students at times, it means working with female students individually with their Masters Degree creative component or Thesis, my husband looks young and full of energy, he wins fellowships and research grants, everyone loves him.

I know how much he loves our boys,
I told him to feel free doing what's best for his career, I set up different office hours, I purposely avoid going close to his office during his office hours, because he will have students asking him questions...his office door is always open when he has students in....

Yes, I may be be upset or feel jealous if I see a young woman student in his office talking to him individually, but I choose not to see it. I myself talk to many young male college students, besides teaching them the class and helping them learn in a fun way, I have NO feelings for my students...

I choose NOT to ask or doubt my husband (my choice), I am busy with my own stuff. Sometimes he himself tells me stuff, I will listen...

"I think I will spend the rest of my life with you." He keeps telling me,

I said:"Well, any time, if you think that there is another woman who can be a better wife, please let me know.
I love you, but never wanted to be a burden of yours, i will let you go if you love me no more."

And so, he simply stayed and loves me more.

I feed him his favorite dishes,
when he comes home, the food is ready on the table and he simply sits down and eats...he is spoiled,
now I am spoiled to blog about it.

Many thanks for sharing your own experiences.

PattiKen said...

I really like this, Jingle There is no more loving a relationship than that of two independent people who respect and are committed to each other.

Well done.

David Rheins said...

we are all connected, yet feel separated. We strive for independence while we long to couple.
