I have anothern cousin from the Philippines, a man, whose lovelife is in stark contrast to my doctor/lawyer cousins’ love connection. This particular cousin happens to be a jerk, an as*h*le, and a freakin’ cheater. And that’s saying it mildly.
So what’s this guy’s story? This guy, I call him the jerk, has a girlfriend. He and girlfriend are already living together, but have not married yet. The jerk is one good-looking guy, unfortunately, and though he’s not really a player/ playboy, there are several women co-workers who are crushing on him. But, there’s this woman who’s really head over heels in love with him , and according to the jerk, she’s been throwing herself at him, and , what is he going to do, he asks. He’s a man and so, he dated her and one thing led to another, and got the girl pregnant. So, then, what did my jerk cousin do? He called his dear Mama who lives far away from the city. Mother and son went over to my aunt’s house to seek legal help. No, this aunt isn’t a lawyer but both mother and son knew my other aunt was a judge, so they called my other aunt to seek legal advice. It was my lawyer cousin who talked to them, and told them he was not legally bound to marry the girl, but legally bound to give child support. According to my jerk cousin, the pregnant girl’s father and brother came to see him at his workplace and the father actually begged him to marry his daughter. The father assured my jerk cousin that he was free to leave his daughter even right after the wedding, just as long as he puts a ring on her finger and gives his name to the unborn child. Apparently, there was some sort of a mild threat thrown in fro good measure. Fortunately, the jerk cousin ‘s mom has an uncle who is a high – ranking general in the army and he was the one who told the father not to threaten my cousin. Anyway, the last we heard of this problem, my jerk cousin didn’t marry the girl , and had returned to his girlfriend’s loving arms.
So, what’s my opinion on this ?
It’s a load of cr*p. And there are 2 real victims here. …. the child, and the girlfriend. …. another child without a father. My cousin and his girlfriend have been living together for sometime now and the girlfriend hasn’t gotten pregnant. I assume they use protection. So, when he stupidly decided to date the other girl, why didn’t he use one? It wasn’t the girl’s fault. She was a girl determined and so much in love. People in love do stupid things. ( Men should watch the movie ” Fatal Attraction “! ) He should have spurned the girl’s advances, told her to take a hike or go jump off the cliff, zipped his pants tight , and walked away. Or if he couldn’t restrain his libido, then use a condom! ! Gosh ! ( I’m getting angry now.) And his girlfriend…… she took him back. (=_= ) I wonder what she felt when she found out her boyfriend cheated big time. I’d pop a vein, have a massive coronary, and drop dead. I don’t think I could ever trust such a man again. What he did is not something one could just delete and forget it ever happened. In my book, that’s untenable, and darn, I don’t want such complications in my life. Is that harsh ? What if it was a girlfriend who cheated while still in a relationship with you, had sex with another guy, would you forgive and forget ? No? Exactly.
Okay, ranting done. * fans self *
