In September 2013, I accompany one of my friends from Kunming to Qujing, a city 2 hours from Kunming. In the evening, we meet up with some friends at a bar. One is a young couple with the woman being 2 months pregnant. They look like they are very much in love. I ask them how they met.
He: “I was in 9th grade and she was in 12th grade. The first time I saw her, I knew that she was special. I fell in love with her right away.”
She: “I was hesitant. After all, I was 3 years older than him – he was 15 and I was 18, and we were both still at school.”
He: “I chased after her for 2 years. Then we got together. We’ve been together for 6 years now. We’ll get married next month. After we’re married, I still want to see her as my girlfriend rather than my wife. Your whole attitude changes when you see someone as your wife and not as your girlfriend. Her attitude might change too. I still want to treat her special, like you’d treat a girlfriend.”
Do you agree that you’d treat a wife different from a girlfriend? Let us know in the comments’ section.
