How could a fortune teller tear our love apart?

CoCo, 27 years old, failed in his romantic relationship simply because of a fortune teller’s words.

“We broke up because her mum said my lucky number and my date of birth means that I cannot marry her,” said CoCo.

CoCo’s relationship started in mid-2011 after they had spent half a year being friends. At the end of that year, CoCo and his lover started to talk about marriage and the obstacles they could face.

“We talk about our marriage in the ‘if’ condition,” he said. “If in the future we can’t marry each other, what are we going to do?”

However, even as they were ready to face their problems, their relationship failed after his lover’s parents went to the fortune teller.

“Her parents went to the fortune teller and they believed in the words predicted. Since then my love and I are not so good to be with each other. Her mother rejected us and didn’t allow us to marry.”

At that time, he got the feeling that his lover’s mother’s rejection was maybe because of the words from the fortune teller, in addition to the fact that he is not wealthy and has an unstable job, so he may not able to provide a good standard of living to his lover.

“Are the fortune teller’s words more important than the love a couple have with each other? If it is just an outsider we don’t know who tells us that this or that couple could not marry, then do they need to end their relationship? Why do parents believe fortune tellers’ predictions?”

However, CoCo said he is still happy and blessed to see that his lover could find the one she can trust and give her love to and,  more importantly, marry.
