As people age.. a.lot of questions arise as to why someones not married and why they chose to remain single.
For others..questions or statements like "ang tanda na nya di kaya siya nahihiya sa pinagagawa niya?" often followed.
I have seen situations where some engaged in questionable affairs but like they say.. "buhay nila yon and they can do whatever they want" which is actually true.
One story caught my attention though.
Roma is a striking lady.She had learned to wear make up at an early age thus afforded her many suitors behind her.She had boyfriends in the past but for sometime that I had known her,The truth remained unknown why she remained single all this time.
Once I asked her this inevitable question why she remained unmarried when in fact, she can easily have one judging by the way she looked.
She timidly answered me "I am happy being single and if being married means added headache to me then I would rather stay single all my life than suffer the consequences.."
"But don't you wish you had someone to spend your life with? I mean growing old and all will be a lot better I think if you had someone to turn to in times you needed company.." i asked her again.
I have my parents..i have my nieces and nephews.. and besides I often saw my friends having marital problems..marriages not working out,wives beaten blue..blah blah blah...
OK I got her..
She doesn't really want to talk about it..
So I gave her a break..
And in time I totally forgotten all about our talk regarding her marital status..
Not until last evening.
Someone casually mentioned the reason why she remained single..
One night Roma was chatting with her boyfriend on cam when she decided to break up with him.
The boyfriend was pleading with her but she was adamant and stucked with her decision..
Then the unexpected happened.
The boyfriend pulled a gun and shot himself in the head.
Live on cam.
