The Distance In - Between
“Couples who are living apart from each other can also enjoy sharing with each other, telling one another about their day as this can create communication between them.”
“Nevertheless, while the distance is about miles and not about love distance, the situation is different. “
Miles become the worst enemy a couple has to face when they have to say good-bye to each other and part to different countries when, due to life circumstances, they cannot be together. When a couple is living far away from each other, people always speculate that distant love is not possible; that is said by those who haven’t lived it. Nevertheless, while the distance is about miles and not about love distance, the situation is different. As long as the couple keeps loving each other and decides to respect themselves so that they can be together some day they overcome all the forces against them.
‘‘…Even though she travels frequently to where he is for approximately three months a year…”
The distance between couples can also serve for them to enjoy things they wouldn’t be able to enjoy if they saw themselves more often. They can enjoy long conversations by phone, they can enjoy surprising themselves when they see each other again and even wait anxiously for that day to come when they’ll see each other again. Couples who are living apart from each other can also enjoy sharing with each other, telling one another about their day as this can create communication between them. The couple may even begin to value one another, and even know if that other person is who they want to be with.
That’s the story of Nohemi and Alejandro, who have known each other for eleven years and have five years of marriage, which for circumstances in live, they haven’t been able to be together. Even though she travels frequently to where he is for approximately three months a year, when they say good-bye is when they wish they could throw down the walls that keep them from being together as a family without the need of saying good-bye. Those walls that keep two children from their father until their mother’s next vacations to go visit him again.
There are couples that overcome the difficulties caused by being separate from each other and all the prejudices of society. His makes a big sacrifice to let go of his family to another country so that his wife can complete her dream of finishing her career. And her sacrifice to be both mother and father to their children needing to work, study and look after them too. The sacrifice that the couple makes to better off themselves to eventually be together as a family are things other people don’t see yet they judge without knowing.
