The early phase of establishing a household requires undivided patience and trust. For those stepping into the world of marriage for the first time, financial pressures are undoubtedly among the concerns.
However, through a viral video on TikTok, a heartfelt sharing can be seen where a husband and wife accept their current situation despite their lack.
New home, few possessions
The couple can be seen together dining on the floor, using only a single black plastic bag as a mat, with their surroundings bare.
“This is the perspective when you just have enough money to buy a house and now you don’t have money to buy furniture. “That’s alright, for now, we have the house, later when we have the fortune, we’ll buy the furniture.”
They were observed having mixed rice and fried chicken which is believed to be packed from a food stall.
After enjoying the meal, the wife picks up the black plastic bag that served as their seat along with the food containers to be thrown in the trash.
The video has garnered 3.2 million views and over 10,046 comments as of the time of writing this article.
Netizens were mostly supportive of the couple. One netizen said its a blessing to have such a understanding partner.
Another netizen said its normal for people to start off like that as it teaches us to have the fighting spirit and keeping the hard work.
One netizen becomes philosophical by saying “Furniture doesn’t make a house , a home. But those who lives in it does.”
