Other peo­ple’s re­la­tion­ships

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - SOCIAL REPORT -

Who hasn’t watched other peo­ple’s re­la­tion­ships and mar­riages in ac­tion and thought, what if? To be more speci c,what if he were the sole bread­win­ner, and I was chie y oc­cu­pied with shelf-or­gan­is­ing, hand­writ­ing thank-you cards and wa­ter­ing the gera­nium pots? In­side ev­ery work­ing woman is the dor­mant seed of a kept woman. Ob­vi­ously, we would hate it – loathe it – but Lenvy is not ra­tio­nal, so some­times we do imag­ine our­selves drift­ing off to a mid-morn­ing Pi­lates class or pop­ping into Zara, just in case there’s been a new de­liv­ery.
