Have you ever met a couple who were lucky enough to have found their one true love? Sometimes they are insufferable to be around, always completing each other's sentences and sharing the same clothes (which is weird on a different level all together). But my question has always been: was it luck that brought them together or something else?
For example: Let me introduce Will and Frankie. Raised in two different geographic regions of the country, they met at the theatre in a small college town. Will was tall and handsome, outgoing and talented in music as well as academic subjects. Frankie was quiet and beautiful, smart as a whip and working her way through graduate school.
Two different people there never were. He liked to go out dancing, visiting with friends, being seen. She was more interested in reading at the library or taking long walks through the woods near the campus. But their relationship worked because of their differences.
They complimented each other in the areas they needed it most. She would follow him out into public, letting him take the lead and talk for her. He would go with her to the library and work on his own projects while she indulged in her favorite authors.
After only six months together, they married. Then came children and careers, moves and relocation that covered most of their years until at last all the kids had flown from the nest and it was just the two of them, remembering how it had been all those years ago, dancing to the music only they could remember.
However, happy endings are hard to find, even if you are lucky. First Will fell ill, and they couldn't discover what was wrong. Then he had a stoke, which eventually led to his death, many years too early. That left Frankie alone, with no Prince Charming to share the newspaper with or to go for a walk. But it was OK, because she knew they would be together again soon.
But the years ran away, 5 years then 15 years. Soon it had been 20 years alone, and the loneliness is overwhelming. The saving grace? The failing memory which gifts her with visits from her Will when none of the rest of us can see him.
Are they lucky to have found each other? Absolutely. Was it fair for Will to die young and leave Frankie alone? Well, who ever said life was fair?
So go be lucky, who know what you might find? My parents (whose names have been changed because otherwise I'd be in trouble!) found each other in the middle of nowhere during a war. If it is meant to be... who needs luck?
