Ding dong! The front doorbell rang. I rushed to open the door. This was the first time I met Marcus. He came to England to travel for a couple of years and arrived at our house to meet up with his uncle and aunt visiting us from South Africa. I was living with my parents at the time in their lovely English house with my son Josh. We also recently immigrated to the United Kingdom from South Africa.
In desperation Marcus contacted his father in South Africa. “I know she is the girl I want to marry, but she is pushing me away and I just can’t understand why!” He told his dad. The wise reply from his dad was, “Stay another month and continue to push the door. If by the end of this month nothing happens come back to South Africa and put it behind you.”
