Marie Claire Dating專欄:因平凡而動人


MC: april-column

文章由香港Lunch Actually創辦人兼CEO Violet Lim執筆

最近和同事聊天,他們突然問起我和老公的情史。

我們於大學認識,維持了兩年多的Long Distance的戀愛。拍拖三年多,我們決定訂婚。他向我求婚的時候,並沒有什麼儀式,也沒有拍短片放上Youtube。我們坐在草地上,他輕輕抱著我,等待倒數新年。踏正12點,煙火鋪滿天際的那一刻,他在我耳邊細語:「Will you marry me?」我毫不猶豫地答應了。

為了給我驚喜,他私下選戒指。在朋友圈中,我比較早結婚。他們聽到我訂婚消息,都很興奮,喊著要看我的訂婚戒指。但當他們看見這枚戒指後,有幾位朋友明顯感到驚訝,因為他們沒有想到戒指上的鑽石會是這麼細小。

當時仍是創業早期,我們把所有積蓄都投放到生意上。其實我不太在意鑽石的大小,我還跟老公說笑,如果要你花數萬元買大一點的鑽石給我,我寧可你將這些錢放在新居的首期上。

結婚儀式同樣簡單,我們花了不到五萬元。老公不太喜歡拍照,也因為省錢,我們沒有特意拍婚紗相,只在結婚當天叫攝影師為我們拍下幾張雙人照作為紀念。我們亦沒有為度蜜月大費周張,而選了一個比較近、花費低、未到訪過而又可以立即出發的地方──清邁。

同事聽到這裡後,一位男同事問:「我可以帶女朋友來多聽你的故事一次嗎?」:)

很多年輕男女渴望愛情,渴望浪漫,渴望完美無瑕的故事、婚禮。最近有一則新聞提到,婚禮開支越昂貴,離婚的機會就越高。不知道這則新聞是否值得參考,但我估計可能是因為華麗婚禮為小情侶帶來的龐大的經濟壓力,無意中增加了口角的機會,令關係產生裂痕。金錢上的紛爭通常也是離婚的最大因素。

聽過故事後,同事似乎對我的婚姻另眼相看。或許,大家都以為老闆定會一擲千金,買一枚昂貴的鑽石婚戒,而我們的婚宴定必大排筵席。其實這一切形式並不重要,最重要的是你和你的伴侶感到開心和幸福。婚姻是你倆的事,不必過於顧慮別人的想法。
