Legal and Binding

Not just by word of mouth; of course that isn’t binding anywhere

I heard this a few weeks ago and it made me laugh sadly. Of course, it was at a work thing where everyone was being all serious and weird, but still. Is this true? Do words mean nothing at all anymore? So then, what is the basis of relationships now? Does trust still exist? And I mean
trust, as in, trust, in the real sense of the concept.
For example:
Miss A tells her boyfriend, “I’ll be going on a two-day trip. I may not be reachable, but I’ll be back on Thursday.” Is it possible that his only worry is that she stays safe and comes back in one piece?

For example:
“Baby, I was only blowing out dust from that lady’s eye. She means nothing to me.”
If your husband told you this, would you believe it without a few bags of salt?
Oya, be honest, if you were in either situation, would you take you partner’s word for it? And seriously, if dating couples can scoff at this, is there truly any point in proceeding on to marriage?

Yes, yes, lately I’ve been asking way too many questions, most of which only Da Lord Himself can answer. I really can’t help it; the mind wanders, you see. Also, sharing all this weirdness makes me just a little bit less crazy. Somewhat. Kinda. Probably not, but it’s worth a shot 🙂
Back to the matter, if trust no longer works, then there is definitely a lack of intimacey somewhere, brought on by poor communication. If there is no communication in a relationship, can love thrive? Last? Exist?
Sigh.
I sense I should stop. That helpless feeling is pulling my shoulders down.

P.S.
Maybe this gloom was brought on because when I wrote this down, I was still feeling the disappointment that comes with non-consumption.
Maybe it’s just the alcohol withdrawal talking.

P.P.S.
Erm… or something.

Ciao, darlings!
