*LiFe t0gETheR*

0ne fine day, an 0ld c0uple ar0und the age 0f 70, walks int0 a lawyer's 0ffice.
Apparently, they are there t0 file a div0rce.
Lawyer was very puzzled, after having a chat with them, he g0t their st0ry....

This c0uple had been quarreling thr0ugh0ut their 40+ years 0f marriage as n0thing ever seems t0 g0 right.
They hang 0n because 0f their children, afraid that it might affect their up-bringing. N0w, all their children have already gr0wn up with their 0wn family and hence, there's n0thing else the 0ld c0uple have t0 w0rry ab0ut. All they wanted is t0 lead their 0wn life free fr0m all these years 0f unhappiness fr0m their marriage, s0 b0th agree 0n a div0rce....
The lawyer was having a hard time trying t0 get the papers d0ne, because he felt that after 40 years of marriage at the age of 70, he couldn't understand why the 0ld c0uple w0uld still want a div0rce..
While they were signing the papers, the wife t0ld the husband..
"I really l0ve you, but I really can't carry 0n anym0re, I'm s0rry.."
"Its 0k, I understand.." said the husband. L0oking at this, the lawyer suggested a dinner t0gether, with just the 3 of them. The wife th0ught why n0t, since they are still g0nna be friends..
At the dining table, there was a silence 0f awkardness.
The first dish was r0asted chicken. Immediately, the 0ld man t0ok the drumstick f0r the 0ld lady.. "Take this, its y0ur fav0urite.."
L0oking at this, the lawyer th0ught maybe there's still a chance. H0wever, the wife was fr0wning when she answered.
"This is always the pr0blem, y0u always think s0 highly 0f y0urself and never th0ught ab0ut h0w I feel. D0n't y0u kn0w that I hated drumsticks?"
Little did she kn0w that 0ver the years, the husband have been trying all ways t0 please her. She als0 did n0t kn0w that drumsticks was the husband's fav0urite.
Little did he kn0w that she never th0ught he understand her at all. He also did n0t kn0w that she hates drummsticks even th0ugh all he wants is the best f0r her.
That night, b0th of them couldn't sleep. They t0ss and turn f0r h0urs. The 0ld man c0uldn't take it anym0re. He kn0ws that he still l0ves her, and he can't carry 0n life with0ut her. He wants her back and wants t0 tell her he is s0rry. He wanted to tell her "I l0ve y0u"...
He picks up the ph0ne and started dialing her number.... The ringing never st0ps.. He never st0p dialing....
0n the 0ther side, she was sad. She c0uldn’t understand h0w c0me after all these years, he still d0esn't understand her at all. She l0ves him a l0t but she just can't take it anym0re.... The ph0ne rang but she refuses t0 answer kn0wing that its him...
"What's the p0int 0f talking n0w that its 0ver... I have asked f0r it and n0w I wanna keep it this way, if n0t I will l0se face.." she th0ught...
The ph0ne c0ntinued t0 ring... Theref0re, she decided t0 pull 0ut the c0rd...
Little did she remember, he had heart pr0blems...
The next day, she received news that he had passed away... She rushed d0wn t0 his apartment, saw his b0dy lying 0n the c0uch still h0lding 0n t0 the ph0ne... He had a heart attack when he was still trying t0 get thr0ugh her ph0ne line....
As sad as she could be... She will have to clear his bel0ngings... When she was l0okin thr0ugh the drawers, she saw this insurance p0licy, dated from the day they got married. The beneficiary is her. T0gether in the file, there is the f0ll0wing n0te...
-->>T0 my dearest wife,
By the time y0u are reading this, I'm sure I'm n0 l0nger ar0und, I b0ught this p0licy f0r y0u. Alth0ugh the am0unt is 0nly $100k, I h0pe it will be able to help me c0ntinue my pr0mise that I had made when we g0t married. I might n0t be ar0und anym0re but I want this am0unt 0f m0ney t0 c0ntinue taking care 0f y0u, just like the way I w0uld if I c0uld have live l0nger. I want y0u t0 kn0w I will always be ar0und, by y0ur side... I l0ve y0u.

Tears fl0wed like river......

**S0, m0ral 0f the st0ry..
"When y0u l0ve s0me0ne, let them kn0w... Y0u never kn0w what will happen the next minute.... Learn t0 build a life t0gether.. Learn t0 l0ve each 0ther. F0r wh0 they are.. N0t what they are..."
