It happened some time ago. Ms. A is a so-called Gold Maid. She has graduated from a renowned university, is getting 6 digit paychecks, and is entitled to affluence in the device from her parents. She also has a fantastic appearance due to a long time yoga practices. All the doors in the marriage market were wide open to this lady who was born in 1985, and was nothing short of anyways.
I introduced an equivalent quality of prospective bridegroom Mr B to her. The two liked each other at the first glance. Mr B was shivering in excitement after the first encounter.
“My hobby is enjoying classical fine art, and he told me that he is a good artist. I felt that I was snug and familiar even at the first meeting. “
Ms A told me that her partner’s first impression was awesome, and the topics of talk were the better.
“It is very rare that any man is interested in fine art except those who majored it in university.”
I did not expect that, either. It is my first experience that I met such a fantastic man.
Mr B was the first son, and had two younger sisters. He was tall and slender, and was to inherit his parents’ business soon. I expected that these two would make a fantastic couple because they were compatible in their characters and were communicating very well.
As the meetings went on, there came the talks of marriage. Maybe it is the expected results. One day, however, the mother of Mr B called me and begged me on the phone.
“Mr Lee, this meeting is impossible. Please make it null and void.”
“Ma’am, what is the matter? What went wrong with this matter?”
“It’s impossible for me to have a daughter-in-law who would not have children. My son is a second-generation only child. How can these two be compromised?”
She was too much astounded to keep her talks. The mother’s worry was that she heard Ms A had no inclination of having children even though she had the willingness to marry Mr B.
I called Ms A right after the talk.
“I fell also deep in agony. I liked Mr B, and thought of him as compatible as it can be. “
“How do you think of changing your mind? ”
“I thought of such matter from long time ago. If couples love each other, sort of different things, I thought, would be solved in time. But this problem is beyond Mr B’s control, isn’t it?”
She was steadfast.
I called Mr B, and asked.
“How would you bridge over such different thoughts and values?”
Mr B’s answer remained for a long time as a lingering reverberation.
It may sound reasonable to some to have children and raise them with love, while others find the value of living in themselves rather than in the future generations. Especially increasing number of woman who can only bring forth the children into this world has such an idea, and the number of man who supports such idea is increasing, too.
