Trial Marriage..................

TS is an attractive young lady, single at 28 years young. Recently she found a new boyfriend who is 9 years older than her. All this while, TS has been staying with her parents. Few days ago, she sounded to her mum that she wants to move out of the house. The couple wishes to rent their own apartment and has intention to stay in together. The mother asked what is the real reason for moving out, when the home gives her so much of freedom and comfort. More so she doesn't need to pay a single cent staying at home.

The daughter was very direct to her mother. Mum! I want to live in together with my boyfriend. Before I get marry to this man, I must see whether I could stay along with him in one shelter. Living together allows me to understand him faster. If it fails, then he won't be my future husband.

The mother was shocked! Unable to speak a word. Took her awhile before she could raise her objection. Both daughter and mother argued and quarrelled for the past one week and yet the problem isn't solved. They are my relatives and I'm caught in the in between. Mother requested me to talk to her and the daughter wanted me to explain to the older lady of the house.

Me! I am at lost as well. I'm seeking you readers to offer me some views and advices. Please??

I only know this proverb - "True Love burns the brightest, but the brightest flames leave the deepest scars."

Hi Robert,
Good day to you!
Understanding that TS mother could be conservative, may I suggest TS move out to stay with her future in-laws or the other way round, her boyfriend move in to stay with their family?
Maybe my suggestion sounded funny, but I supposed it works, if TS's true intention is to see if they can stay together.
It works for me...
Though marriage is 2 persons wedded, but getting along with in-laws is equally important.
Hope it helps...
and my advice to TS and her boyfriend... Be serious about it and don't play-play...!
Have a Wonderful Weekend ahead, ya..

Hi Wan,

It sounds a fantastic idea and will relate them to TS. So did this trial marriage worked for you?

Hi Robert,
Ya... it worked.
However, it is all about effort in cherishing the relationship.
It may work in the trial, but the world is evolving and things changed over time.
Put in effort to love and cherish my Darling and family, and the whole family would be the best place to live in.
