Before tying the knot, there are a lot of things that have to be considered, from shelter to financial stability.
Recently, a Twitter page known as Twt Wedding shared an anonymous confession from a woman whose mother is not fond of her boyfriend. Her boyfriend did not have a car before this and it was initially agreed that the couple would use her car first after marrying each other.
However, after the woman’s mother changed her mind, she managed to persuade her boyfriend to purchase a car first, only to learn that her mother is not a fan of Myvi.
“She said Myvi has no class and it’s only used by students.”
The anonymous woman admitted that it doesn’t matter to her what car her partner drives but is in a dilemma as her mother constantly reminds her to avoid being regretful.
“My mother constantly reminds me to listen to her before I regret anything. Am I really going to regret just because my partner drives a Myvi?”
She asked fellow netizens if she should try to comfort and convince her mother or simply ignore the feeling. You can read the tweet below.
Diluar negara kereta hanya sebagai pengangkutan & ditafsirkan sebagai liabiliti. Asal sampai dari tempat A ke tempat B, sudah memadai.
Tapi, sebaliknya pula di Malaysia. Korang menyesal ke kalau pakai Myvi? pic.twitter.com/f6qcOUJrlA

Human satisfaction is unlimited
A netizen has since responded and said that she should be stern with what she wants and not listen to her parents on every occasion.
“Your mother is prioritising liability over asset. I’m not asking you to be rude but if you’re going to satisfy your mother every time, the satisfaction will never be fulfilled. ”
She also reminded her that owning a car comes with a lot of responsibilities that involve money.
“Even if it’s a used car, your reputation won’t be ruined. I’m still using Myvi and as long as it’s not stolen, then it’s fine.”
“I’ve met a mom like this. Her son wanted to buy a Myvi but she asked him to buy something better. However, she wanted the down payment to be only RM3K. I pity her son who has to pay a high amount of monthly instalment.”
“I just wanna say that Myvi saves a lot of fuel. Your man is the one who will be paying for the car, not your mom.”
Do you think a Myvi is “not big enough” for a married man to drive around?
