why complicate the uncomplicated #2

to help refresh your memory...my "why complicate the uncomplicated" thought #1 was when I was at a dilemma of not knowing how to properly answer the question: Kumain ka na ba?! ...to know more about this check out this blog post...


squeezed by Pat and Emma


so here was another thought which my lower-class brain cannot fathom...

we had an after office stopover at Yellowcab the other day before heading off to Starbucks (which was just right beside each other so no fuss)...and we were fooling around and discussing about relationships...because my officemate kinda made up with her bf whom she was annoying for the whole day - in short ginagalit nya ang galit na sa knyang bf - inaasar pa nya lalo...so anyway...the discussion centered on the conjugal rights and housing rights of newlyweds and all that jazz...like is it more convenient to move in with your husband/wife's family at the start of your marriage...and if that's the case what happens when there is an argument between the couple...who stays and who leaves?...obviously...the other should leave...since it's not your home in the first place - parang nakikitira lang kayo...sabay sambit ng sige binabalik na kita sa nanay mo!...haha


now here is when the discussion become so complicated for me...that i really had this funny look of consternation on my face as i listened to my officemate...

how about if you have your own house in the first place...what id you were embroiled in an argument and you end up threatening each other to leave...or making the other leave the house...who should leave?

here's what how my officemate explained it...(I even asked her to explain it again so I can properly blog it in here)


another Starbucks pose


And she goes: - kapag house nyo mg-asawa... wag k aalis ng house khit ano mangyari kc responsibilidad mo kung ano man meron at nabuo dun... kc pag-umalis k prang iniwan mo n rin ung obligation mo at kapal n ng muka mo bumalik p... so dapat lalaki ang pinapaalis dhil sya nman ang nangsusuyo...


binigyan ako ng sakit ng ulo ni Emma sa pagiisip haha


And I go...huh bakit ganon? eh conjugal property na yun...each one has the right to the house...hanep! naman sa double standard un...

And she further explains that: - saka ms.. pag umalis k ang sasabihin sau ng lalaki... "ikaw ang umalis e d ikaw ang bumalik"...e pag ang lalaki ang umalis.. ang sasabihin ng babae "siya ang umalis kaya sya ang bumalik" mas maganda kung lalaki ang babalik at susuyuin ang babae...pangit pagbabae ang nanuyo... kasunod nun kc e pagtatawanan k ng lalaki kc sasabihin nun d kya ng wala sya at kayang kaya sya lokohin...

huh...ok fine...how complicated...what if each one just have his own house para wala ng problema diba..kanya kanyang doghouse na lang pag nagaway!

and on and on we went...me clarifying...still having this weird look on my face as my officemate stressed her point on the matter...


hirap pala talaga pag kagalit mo ang bf mo..kung anu-ano ang naiisip mo


hahahaha
