Double Standards


Double Standards

Words 100

“Did your parents agree to our wedding?”


“Why not?”

“They were skeptical about the morals of a girl who was living in.”

“Didn’t you tell them you insisted?”

“Even if I did, it wouldn’t make any difference.”

“Why not?”

“How could you give in to my demands?”

“I love you. I cannot refuse you anything.”

“If you can’t stand up to me, how will you stand up to the world?”

“Don’t you love me?”

“I do.”


“I cannot go against my parents’ wishes.”

“If you cannot stand up to them, you don’t deserve to stand by my side.”

  1. I hate that guy!! 😒
    I think she broke up with him rather than he with her. She deserved someone better. Not a coward like him.

  2. She can definitely do better. Obviously she is not the meek-minded good little girl who has no backbone. She has to be with a real man who wants to stand by a real woman!
