It’s been 6 years of our marriage still we fight every now and then. This time, I made my mind, ” I will leave this house, I will move out of this relationship”
Oh, you must be thinking who is she, I am Aradhna Khanna Senior Software Engineer in a world’s leading MNC and a member of the Women Empowerment cell of the city. Mother of two, an angel of 5 yrs and a prince of 2 yrs Last but not the Least Wife of Abhinav Khanna – AVP of Multinational Bank Delhi.
Being a member of the women empowerment cell I always wished to set an example among all.
Last Saturday I had made this final Decision lets end this. I was waiting for Abhinav to come back from office. While I was busy socializing on what’s app and FB he opened the door of the bed room and took his clothes from the wardrobe.
I called him “Abhi Its enough, I want to move out can’t take it anymore”. He nodded and whispered, ” will talk in the morning “. I was sure in my conscience, I will not give up, this time, I will take a stand. After all, we women’s always fails when it comes to taking a stand for ourselves.
Sunday morning I woke up at 7, I went to look out where is he I silently looked everywhere he was nowhere. Straight in my head, I had a voice, “Oh god where is he, did he went to his mom’s place, did he took the step I was planning for, No no it is never he in such situations it’s always she.”
I was pouring tea for myself in the kitchen and as I could turn holding cup of tea in my hand, I found those two eyes glaring at me so beautifully that I had to struggle too hard to hold my smile back.
He came closer he was in white Kurta pyjama I gifted him from online shopping site last month. He held my hand said thank you and took the cup of tea from me.
My inner voice said, ” no, no This is the time to take the stand”.
I went to him “Abhi, I will be leaving you today forever and am taking kids along”. He held both my hands in his and asked me to sit. He looked straight into my eyes and said “Aru I am sorry I know I am the worst Life partner, I don’t give you much time entire staff enjoys Saturday and I sit in the office and work. I will not say stereotypical that I am doing all this for you and the kids, After all, it’s my responsibility to earn a good life for you and the kids, you all are my family. I know you don’t demand too much. But My darling, my love, and intentions are not wrong. I love you as I loved you in 2009 when we got married. ”
His words were like raindrops I was loving this moment. He continued ” you are angry I know, but dear has I ever complained to you”. I looked at him and asked ” what did I do You come late, you forget our anniversary, Birthdays etc. You don’t buy me flowers, you don’t surprise me now and then. The love life post marriage fades ppl says so right.”
He smiled “Aru my love, you are so right, I come late cause I wish to earn more so that when you ask for holiday in Nainital I can take you to New York. And I love surprise Birthday and Anniversary party, you throw for me, I am sure you must have noticed I always come dressed and on time on Birthdays and Anniversary.” ” I am not aware of flowers and surprises for you I will definitely do that”.
He loving said “what are we Life partners. When we entered this partnership we accepted each other with all good and bad. I don’t want to end this partnership I wish to have this for life long. I know you are an awesome mom, loving wife and above all an excellent human being.”
I had to smile and joyful tears in my eyes started rolling. I had a feeling as if my internal system is rebooted all the bugs of negative thoughts are fixed by the romantic dose. I rest my head on his shoulder and had a deep breath.
My inner voice “Yes, I took the stand to keep my partnership alive. I am an empowered woman as I stopped my nest to get destroyed by unwanted thoughts and misleading steps. I pledge to keep my partner happy always. I will always be your Partner for Life, Love you Abhi”.
“Before ending any Relationship one should always have a space to Re-communicate.”
