The ideal couple who had it all
We met over 15 years ago in an arranged marriage. We shared the same background, the same ideologies – everything was peachy.
So we tied the knot and were on cloud nine. To everyone, we were the ‘IT’ couple who had it all. I was a stay-at-home mom, while he brought in the bread. He had an excellent job and pretty much raked in the big ones.
A year or two on and we welcomed a little boy into the world. The baby was extremely cute and stole the hearts of everyone. Two years later, we welcomed another bundle of joy.
Years went by, we moved around as he shifted jobs. We lived life king size and the children grew up happy and content. They were not spoiled in the strictest sense but were secure.
