“If you won’t be near me, I would be lonely. So, won’t marry a man who lives far away from here.”
No, Grandma, don’t be so silly.
I know she loves me so much, but it means that her happiness is more important for her than MY happiness.
I love her, of course, but every time when she said something like this, I have a feeling like I’ll never have a conversation with her about my future.
“I’m sorry, but I can’t marry you because my Grandma won’t be happy without me.”
Oh, no, that’s impossible.
I’m not her only one family, she has lots of members of her family. Even her elder sisters are living here in Hiroshima!
Well, I’m wondering if a woman refuse to marry a man for this reason, how the man feel?
That means the woman care about her Grandmother more than the man.
Find no word to say?
Tell you your opinion, please! 😉
I know why she said such a thing.
I’m the first Grandchild for her and have been living near her. I’m the only one granddaughter who has been living in this city, and other granddaughters and her daughter have been living in the other city far away from here. She has 2 grandsons and they have been living here, but she felt that they are a little cold than us, girls.
I know, I know.
But! I was irritated with her sometimes…
I don’t have any plan about my marriage and it means that I will stay near her for a while.
So, let’s go, Grandma! I will support you!
At least for a while, until I have a plan to marry with someone who lives far away from here.
