This has been an interesting week for me, both at work and personally. Work is always full of activities and meeting many interesting people. Everyday is a learning experience, as I have come to learn. I would have loved to share some of the interesting things I came across this week but professional code of conduct bars me from discussing such issues.
However, this week, I was meeting a client for a breakfast meeting in one of the coffee lounges in town. I made one observation that got me thinking about so many things. I noticed that there were very many mature men having breakfast in town. And I asked myself, I thought men leave their homes after having breakfast that has been prepared by their wives (or girlfriends) or by the house-help (of course under supervision by the lady of the house)? It hit me hard that a majority of marriages and of course heterosexual relationships fail the moment they take off!
What about queer relationships? I have had a couple queer friends and from the stories I have heard, our brothers and sisters in heterosexual relationships are in a better place! I know for sure, that over 85% of queer or gay relationships don't last for a year! I have heard of exceptional ones going for between 5 and 15 years! I don't know what the magic is; maybe they should share the trick with my gay brothers. One of the reasons I think gay relationships flop is because of the equality of both parties. I know people play different roles in bed but two men together can't work! All men consider themselves as equals and that they can do what the other can do. 'If my boyfriend is out for drinks with his friends, why can't I go out and hang out with my friends too'; that is how they think. Again, none of the partners is willing to be submissive like a woman submits to a husband in a heterosexual marriage or relationship. Homosexual relationships will only work when one partner realizes their position in the relationship and is willing to submit to and respect the other.
And just as I was thinking about my relationship status, the client walked in.....
