1. The Story
A man married a beautiful girl. After the wedding, they lived happily together. The man admired her beauty and loved her very much.
But after a few months, his wife learned that she was suffering from a skin disease and was gradually losing her beauty.
Knowing this, the woman began to think, "And if I became ugly, my husband would begin to hate me. I won't be able to tolerate his hate."
Meanwhile, one day, her husband had to leave town for work. On his way home from work, he had an accident and lost both his eyes in the accident.
Despite all this, their married life continued to go on as normal.
Time passed, and the woman completely lost her beauty because of her skin disease. She became ugly, but her blind husband could not see it. So it did not affect their married life.
He continued to love her as always.
One day, his wife died. Now the husband was sad and lonely. He decided to leave this city.
He performed all the funeral rites for his wife. The next day, as he was about to leave, his neighbor saw him and went to him and said, "How are you going to live without the support of your wife? You can't see, and your wife has always been there for you to support you and help you for many years. It would be difficult for you."
The husband replied, "My friend, I am not blind. I was just pretending to be blind. Because when my wife found out she was sick, I realized that she was embarrassed and afraid of the disease".
If my wife had known that I could see her ugliness, it would have hurt her more than her illness. She was a very good wife and I just wanted her to stay happy. That's why, for all those years, I pretended to be blind.
