Not saying it makes it right. Just saying that it goes on........on both sides of the fences so to speak.
In this case the two ladies in question picked up the language very quickly, started socialising quite alot ( as now there was no language barrier) anf basically changed direction with there lives.
Yeah it goes on...personally I'm a believer that marriage is for life, not just for xmas ;0) or in this case when you find someone with better prospects!
......but life is a little bit more complicated than that. Take for example the two girls i mentioned ( i know them to say hello but not all thier personal circumstances).
It could be the case where they are moving on because they are of the belief that they have found somone with better material prospects. ( which in my opinion would be wrong). On the other hand they could be moving on becasue thier husbands are alcoholics, no job and sat in front of tv all day. ( in which case then they would be justified to look for somone else).
