Well, this is a rant post.
And in case you are new to my space, a rant post is a post where I rant about a topic without caring about your feelings. Also, I do not know if my position is right or wrong because I only care to get stuff off “my chest”.
Also, it is how I feel at the time. It could change tomorrow, but still, I don’t care.
Now, let us get into the topic of today.
It is about the trending story I read on Twitter about a lady getting married to her twin sister’s ex.
The summary of the story is that the groom-to-be called off the wedding to her twin sister because they fell in love with each other. In fact, they started dating two weeks after he called the wedding off.
Yep, you read right. Twin sister A lost her fiance to Twin sister B, and now, Twin sister B is getting married to that man.
(I want to puke).
While I was still wrapping my head around that story, I read another story of a lady getting married to her friend’s ex. The friend died less than two years ago.
First, Sis (blood/friendship related), I do not care if you would remain single for life, but please leave my exes alone. Whattttt!! You sure can find your man outside the darn circle.
Why are you remotely attracted to your friend’s ex, not to talk about your sister’s ex??! WHY?
Let me try and break down how I see it:
- We can’t date the same man because we are not a groupie. We can’t sleep with the same man or have fantasies about the same man and call ourselves friends/sisters. It feels like an abomination. My man is/was your brother. You and your brother shouldn’t be romantically involved. It’s incest.
- It’s going to breed trust issues because then we will meet up, and my ex is your man? Like Are we going to be acting like siblings now? What if the breakup wasn’t mutual? If you came back and saw us chatting happily in a corner, you wouldn’t be bothered. Girlll, please!!!!
- You don’t believe in Okafor’s law? Even a little of it?
- At what point did you two start falling in love with each other? Have I always been the blind fool in the relationship both ways? Were you the reason we didn’t work?
To be honest, I have more questions/concerns in my head, but I think I’m just going to cut to the chase to say don’t be unfortunate my dear friend/sis, leave my exes alone. It’s not about them, it’s about us.
Even the bible says you shouldn’t covet your neighbor’s partner. Neighbor ooo… talk more of friend/sister. Don’t do it.
In conclusion, the fact that a man dated your friend/sister is enough to make you not remotely like them romantically. You shouldn’t.
Plus I believe that the men that see nothing in dating friends or sisters are the ones that go after their wife’s family members or friends when they are married.
Anyway, in this case, I’m closed-minded. Get you another man from the planet that hasn’t been with me, your sister/friend. It’s beyond ridiculous.
Or am I tripping? What do you say?
P.S: I used Emily in Paris photo because we all know that Triangle was a betrayal too, and Emily didn’t even know when it started that he was her friend’s “ex”.
