After losing touch for a long time, one can only image how a wife could have felt when she learned that her husband had wed another lady and started a family. Since they last saw one other 54 years ago, the husband has wed a different woman. In contrast to the wife who waited, they had a large family together, with many children and grandchildren.
Many families were evacuated during the 1940s in a country where war was raging. After their wedding night, a newlywed couple in a small, isolated community in the highlands were instantly split apart. The wife pledged to be patient while the husband was in war. She declared that she would never be married again if she couldn’t wait.
At the moment, the newlyweds’ love is unwavering and intense. A strong love may light up the sun and the moon, as the proverb goes. Even a solid relationship between a couple, nevertheless, could break down due to an unforeseen turn of events. The wife was forced to migrate after a few days to escape the ongoing conflict. The couple had lost touch as a result of the husband being at war and the wife moving away from her birthplace to live in another city.
The wife has been asking for updates on her husband for many years, but all she has heard is that he has either left the area or that he might have died in war. Even after years had gone, the wife stuck to her vow to never remarry and never gave up looking for information about her husband.
Her relatives and friends would occasionally get her to give up and get married again. She can yet find a new spouse and enjoy a successful and happy marriage. Even when others tried to convince her otherwise, she stood by her vow of honor and kept her commitment.
54 years have vanished in an instant. The young wife who waited for her husband to come home is now an older woman with gray hair. She would simply smile in response to questions from her family and friends up to that point asking if she regretted waiting for her husband and delaying getting remarried. Finding a new husband is not as crucial to her as maintaining her “word of honor.”
When 2020 arrived, fate changed the situation. The elderly widow eventually learned about her husband from some of his family’s friends. Sadly, when she eventually met the (former) couple, her hopes were dashed. The old woman was unaware that her husband had remarried, had numerous children, and had many grandchildren because they had been apart for 54 years and had no communication with one another.
Even though the husband was ashamed, the elderly woman greeted him without any hesitation. After being apart for so long, the ex-couple hugged and sobbed. The grandfather acknowledges that he felt guilty because his ex-wife waited for him for 54 years without getting remarried.
The old woman pounded on the grandfather’s chest while simultaneously crying out in despair and rage, “I have waited for you for 54 years! Why did you not approach me? Where have you been throughout this time? The grandfather sobbed as he hugged her and lost his words.
It turns out that his home was in ruins when he arrived in their town from the war, and no one knew where his wife was. He moved on, supposing his wife had died. As the years went by, he wed a second woman and had a large family, including grandchildren. Before getting remarried, he had a name change. The majority of individuals during a conflict cannot read, and their names were altered to something arbitrary. There was no household registration at that time. How could she locate him among the millions of people who had changed their names? In vain did the elderly woman wait.
