MY STORY: I have been married for three weeks, and I am already bored


My name is June – and this is my story

I am a 37-years-old woman – and I have a decent job. I also have a car, a nice car to be precise. I earn a decent salary, actually more than my husband who is an engineer.

I got married to my boyfriend of two years – and now he is my husband.

My husband and I have been married for three weeks.

I hate it so much

The problem is that I am already feeling bored with my marriage. I hate it so much that I want to run away.

I think – to some extent – that the marriage has become my small prison. That I can no longer go out with the girls to enjoy a few shots of Jack Daniels without anyone breathing down your throat is killing me.

To be honest, I got married because I was under too much pressure from the society. My mother kept pushing me to get them a man, and a grandchild.

My many aunties were on my neck.

I just didn’t know what to do – and so I gave in to their pressure, and married this man – for them.

I feel sorry for him

Of course he is sweet, but I feel am not just cut out for marriage. I am the wild type.

I feel sorry for him (my husband), but I guess my individual happiness should be paramount.

The three weeks that we have been married have been the hardest days of my life.

Should I tell him? Ama nivumilie.
