Love....

"My pretty doll - how pretty u look today" laughed  Rajeev as Pia twirled around in the new range of "Princess" skirts they had bought over the weekend. "Be my little gal always"…

No sooner did Rajeev  step out to office, Pia rushed  into their bedroom and stripped her Salmon-Pink Skirt! The gaudy "Love" sign splashed all over the skirt filled her with distaste. But Pia knew as long as she acted the clueless pretty girl who was helpless without Rajeev, he would be the perfect husband…..

Only if somebody had told her every marriage was built on “Conditional Love(s)”….

"Conditional Love" is the prompt for 100 word fiction at Write Tribe.

  3. I think more than cunning the wife is trapped. And this might be the true story of many women who are stuck in a loveless-conditional marriage. Loved the story :)

  7. O, that's too sad. It is not even conditional love....it is even worse.

  8. conditional love is surely not the purest love.. hope she was accepted as she was and given the freedom to be whatever she wishes to be!

  16. Well written - and depressing. I've spent a number of years in a third world country and have seen that it's the women as much as the men who continue the traditions of women being subservient. I hope this will change in the next 50 years with the prevalence of the internet and western culture.

  17. In some cultures it is completely normal. 3 out of 4 marriages in our culture end in divorce so weird as it seems we can't judge. Cool story. Shawn from Laughing at Life 2

  18. I'm unconvinced by the characterisation in this piece - if she's that clever and independent, why would a man like that ever be her idea of a perfect husband? Perhaps that's just my own preferences showing...

  21. I wish she was accepted for what she was and not just for what she wore ! It is difficult to be in a relationship like that !! Well penned, Meena :)
