Unformatted text preview: 9 Dear Gabriella, 15 December 1935 Dear Gabriella, I'm in desperate need of your assistance when it comes to my love life. You see, the problem started back when I was younger and I fell deeply in love with a woman named Tita. She is splendid woman and the love of my life, however her mother refused to agree to our marriage due to a stupid family tradition of theirs. Due to this, I made the horrible mistake of marrying her sister instead because I thought that it would help Tita and I remain close. Well, I ended up hurting Tita instead, which might have lead to her recent engagement. I really wanted to be happy for her Dear Gabriella, after all that I put her through, but my anger took over me and I ended up pushing her further and further away. It literally breaks my heart to bring pain to her, because I see how hard she tries to take care of me, and be a good wife to me, even though she is not. On top of that, her mother has finally died, so we no longer need her consent to marry. However, since I was an idiot and I married her sister, we still have her family standing In the way. I just need your advice on how to approach this situation Gabriella before I lose her once and for all!!! To whom it may concern, you have to learn to look at things from Tita's perspective and consider how your actions have affected her. Ever since she was a little girl, Tita probably had hopes and dreams of marrying her one true love, and starting a family, and now she's being denied the opportunity to do so. On top of that, you added insult to injury by marrying her sister, when she probably didn't even have time to finish emotionally processing the loss of her relationship with you. Therefore, Mister, it's important to learn to be gentle with Tita,and approach her in a delicate way, because she's still going through a difficult time right now. You also have to learn to give her the freedom of choice as well because she never received that from her family due to their traditions and beliefs. I know it's easy to worry that if you don't fight for her that she'll end up marrying her financé, but she needs you needs to let her free more than ever. If you continue to try to dictate her choices, she won't find the liberation and empowerment that she's longing for right now. Plus, I hate to throw it in your face, but you sacrificed your right to have any input in her life when you hit married to her sister. However, if you try truly expressing your feelings to Tita, and allowing yourself to finally be vulnerable, you might be able to break through her walls, and change her mind before it's too late. I would also recommend seeing a divorce lawyer as well because you're not being fair to Tita or her sister by having this emotional affair. . 2 ...
