Love Story (1)
I want to share the stories of two young couples, both are children of my friends. The first couple is in their twenties and the other in their thirties; one ending in a wedding and the other ending in the cancellation of an announced wedding on the Facebook. Which one should I write about first? The happy one first before the bitter one!

Mary (not the real name) has just turned 24. She graduated from university in 2011 summer and is therefore in the second year of her advertising career. She announced in September that she would be getting married on New Year Eve and that she is already three-month pregnant.

Though growing up in a single-parent family, she has always been very well looked after by her mother. We all found her a docile, quiet, sweet girl. And as we were worried how she is to hide her big tummy, she said that there is nothing to hide when after all, many of her friends are “doing the same things.”

Times are truly different! We were not brought up to be this open! We could never be this casual! Dating would be limited to holding hands and hugging at most! I am glad for Mary because she will be married! I wish her all the best as she embarks on her married life with a baby girl to come along very soon!
