"One is bound to bear luck. Everything depends on luck. If you were lucky, the husband wouldn't leave his wife," she said.

"You were proud of your husband," I told her.  "He was a unique diamond. Now there you are. Men are too selfish. They love women until they are young to satisfy them. When the wife gets older, they go out in search of young women."
