Analysis of Wedding Dance

By louieandrew Mar 19, 2011 273 Words
“True love doesn’t have a happy ending because true love never ends.” The story “Wedding Dance”, written by Amador Daguio, tells us how a human normally acts in dealing with the beliefs and traditions that evolved in the society. Cultural norms have always been used as an excuse to control the behavior of people. They can be constricting and opressive though it was probably not initially the intention of the practices. The tribe’s culture permits man to leave his wife and take another woman hoping the second wife would bear him children but no such provision for women exists. And although the first wife may remarry, it would only be after her husband left her. The main characters of the story were Lumnay and Awiyao. The two are ex-husband and wife who decided to end their marriage because they weren't able to produce children. The man, who badly needs one to affirm his virility and to establish his place among his tribesmen, decided to leave Lumnay and married another woman named Madulimay. He was hopeful, that after seven years of waiting, Madulimay will give the child he has been asking for. Lumnay is hard working, knows how to plant beans and can do household chores. She’s very graceful, a good dancer and a loving wife. Awiyao is good looking, a loving husband and he’s very strong. He has a good sense of humor, kind and blessed with beautiful and firm muscles. Madulimay is the second wife of Awiyao. She knows how to plant and do household chores but she’s not as good as Lumnay.
