‘Our Kids Couldn’t Stop Smiling’ — M’sian Couple Remarry After Divorcing 5 Years Ago

They remarried on their firstborn's birthday.
Divorces are usually painful experiences for not only the adults, but also the children as they have to witness their once happy family being torn apart.

Thankfully for a group of three siblings in Maran, Pahang, they were able to once again enjoy the warmth of a reconciled family after their parents decided to give their marriage another shot.

Following the divorce, Nur Amirawati continued to be on good terms with her ex-husband for the sake of her three children aged between 10 to 13 years old and resided in Sungai Jerik while Saharudin moved to Melaka.

Despite the calm facade the couple put on, it didn’t escape the eyes of the children.

Our children were very young when we split and they always felt it was strange that their father did not stay with them. They were always curious why he would call often but not live with us.

The children’s desire to see their father further intensified during the Covid-19 pandemic, where the entire country was placed under lockdown and interstate travel was restricted.

Nur Amirawati noted that the children were visibly sad during a video call with Saharudin as they were unable to see him in the flesh.

Nur Amirawati also revealed that her ex-husband had attempted to patch things up with her in the past but she wasn’t ready to do so at the time.

However, she realised that she still loved Saharudin and decided to reconcile with him. The couple eventually retied the knot in 2022.

“When we were confident (about reconciling) and both our families supported it, we chose the date of our firstborn’s birthday to get married. All our children were so happy and could not stop smiling,” she said.

Nur Amirawati added that she has found more meaning to her life after remarrying Saharudin as she had learnt a lesson about being more tolerant and understanding through the divorce.

“I’m thankful to God for allowing us to come together and I pray (the relationship will last). Us separating taught us a lesson.”
