He also revealed that he was informed by the groom who send him an invite.
I’ll tell you mine. I was away for six month. Never knew my girlfriend that we were stil dating was getting married to someone. It was the husband that even chatted me to invite me.
Got back to attend her wedding. She was shocked to see me. It was heart breaking, but we move.
“Having a chat with my colleagues about their kids. One said he came back from sea and his daughter asked him “who are you” The other said his son wouldn’t let him carry him. One met his wife’s lover in his house This is what sailors face, long time away from their families.
Some are even parenting kids that aren’t there’s So when you think sailors have a wonderful life, cause they travel and sea the world, think again”
