I saw his bride and I stared wide eyed
'Twas like looking up to the sky and seeing cats fly
For John Doe loves women of generous proportions
And this maiden he'd chosen was of a variant dimension
As light is to day, and piety to decay
Was this maiden to the ladies with whom I'd often seen him play.
I saw his bride and longed to pull her aside
To ask, to enquire... but eventually left my dismay to hide.
Cheerily, I wished them farewell and a happy married life
As I struggled to reconcile his past lovers with this one whom he'd made his wife.
So I wrote that while thinking about my darling friend who loves a certain kind of woman but married someone who's the exact opposite, for alleged reasons that are rather unsavory... We've (friends in the know) have argued about it back and forth and back again. Those of us who hadn't been opportuned to view the bride before, received a huge shock on seeing her at the wedding.
Everyone says '... But John Doe loves "amala", why did he go and marry "spaghetti carbonara"?' (Sorry I'm being annoyingly vague, I'm just trying not to get into trouble here. LOL). Let's just say we all know that John Doe likes and has only ever dated "light skinned VERY plus size igbo ladies over 6ft tall", and then just got married to a "very petite Hausa dark skinned size 2"... (Or something like that, long story short, his bride is the exact opposite of what we all know he likes).
Although it's been many weeks, there are still speculations as to the why's and how's and prophecies of infidelity and unhappiness. I'm not quite sure I agree with these but the questions I'm asking are;
...How important is it that someone who has a type marry someone that's their type?
...Does marrying/dating someone who's not your type increase the possibilities of you cheating (OR) Does marrying your type make it easier to stay faithful?
...Are you married/in a relationship with someone who's not the kind you would usually go for? Has this affected your happiness/sex life/relationship? Please share, we would lurrrrrv to know.
