Originally “Cruz: PNoy too old for marriage” by David Dizon
Marriages between people younger than 20 and older than 40 are unstable, according to former Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Oscar Cruz.
“We found out that those who get married young, and by young, 20 years old below, and those who get married old, 40 above, these are the marriages which are unstable. The younger part, it’s unstable. They are movable. They change. Marriage is a continuity, it’s a permanence and easily they change. It doesn’t suit their age,” he told ANC’s “Headstart.”
“But 40 above, marriage is blending. Two in one. Somebody who’s 40, 50, 60 cannot blend anymore.”
He, however, said there could be exceptions. “I’m just saying our statistics is yung mga bata, hindi dapat magpakasal. Yung matatanda hindi rin dapat magpakasal. Baka may exception ha,” he said.
Asked if the President would be a better leader if he was married, Cruz said: “I do not know…Happier or not, no more. I’m thinking more about marriage per se. The person is there. But as I said, no. 40 is old.”
I just spent a good 5 minutes staring at this.
This is how the rain looks like when you’re up there.
It has been almost a year since I last saw you. Now, all I’m hoping for is for my feelings to turn out self-implicated; my efforts futile; and us being together, imaginary.
I continue to walk down my path, hoping that our paths would cross some distance ahead. Do I wait for you, and miss out all the other opportunities? Or do I grab my opportunities and miss out my chance to be with you?
In the battle with myself, I end up winning. But I also end up losing.
Which do I choose? And why? Why is that even when I was sure that you will never be mine, I still look on and watch myself fall carelessly deeper into the imaginary world where you and I are together?
