"The pain of marrying the wrong person is worse than your fear of not getting married before a certain age." These are the words of 36 year old Takara who's now on her second marriage. In this candid confession, she shares the raw truth of what it was like marrying the wrong person, the pain, the signs, and the reconciliation.
She opened up this much needed dialogue about the consequences that come with giving into the societal pressures of marriage by a certain age. Takara said, while hindsight is 20/20, she realized pressure was a part of her decision to marry. Unknowingly this decision would also come hefty price tag of isolation from friends, excruciating emotional pain for not only her but her family as well, and the stigma of divorce.
