Reflection
True love doesn’t have a happy ending because true love never ends.” Wedding
Dance, a different kind of short story written by Amador Daguio that takes place in a
tribe wherein a wife, Lumnay, is not able to give birth that causes for her husband,
Awiyao, to leave her and takes another wife. How scornful it is for them but this
separation has to be done in accordance to the unwritten law. If ever Madulimay do not
give birth will there be a chance that Awiyao and Lumnay will be together again. It
presented the situation where they must let go of extreme emotions to give way for the
man to marry another woman. Awiyao couldn’t bare the sadness seen in Lumnay’s face
anymore. They had to ignore the call of their hearts and free each other—just for a
shallow view of an unwritten law. Their love for each other will remain forever even
though they are blocked by great barriers.

“If I fail I’ll come back to you... Then both of us will die together. Both of us will
vanish from the life of our tribe.” A line taken from the story and a proof that there’ll be a
chance that the two can be together again. An assurance that Awiyao will just marry
Madulimay for the sake of the tribe. A promise he gives to Lumnay that even though
he’ll marry Madulimay his love for his first wife is still unfailing - never ending, intends to
never die, and will never be burn like lumbers thrown into angry flames of fire. A
compliment that if he fails for the second time to have a child, he still wants to spend his
life with the first woman he married.

“Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep. The only
way to retain love is to give it away.” The love story between the two will never end for it
will grow and will retain in their hearts. The author has been indirect to this essence but
this is what he really mean - a love that will never lost even it is sacrifice and given or
taken away.

In conclusion, accepting it is the best thing to do if you let go. Considering that a
girl is happy with another person, a man must accept the fact, appreciate the happiness
to the girl that he loves, and also, to the benefit to all of those who are involved in a
relationship.

For the progression of industrialization. less developing countries cooperate with more developing countries to get new technology or instruct employees to know some modern methods.
