Title over Time
Unlike her husband, Amani says she’s not in love with Woody right now. Thankfully, she said she feels herself growing in that direction. But she’s not there yet. She opened up and told him that she feels like she is the one stopping herself from getting to that point right now because every time she has been in love, it’s ended badly.
I guess Woody took that to mean that she was somehow punishing him for the mistakes of other people. In the confessional, he said, “I don’t think your husband is going to do any of those things.” Then later told the crew, “It sucks, leave it at that.” But a title means nothing in a relationship. There are husbands all over the world who have caused their wives unspeakable pain. I understand marrying a stranger, there are some timelines you’ll have to let go. But realistically, he and Amani haven’t even known each other for a month yet. It’s okay if she’s not in love right now. Amani has shown Woody that she’s open to the process. I think he can give her some time to relax into this new role. Because there’s nothing wrong with being cautious in the beginning of a relationship.
