5 Memorable Quotes About Life, Love, Marriage, And Family From “Matrimonial Chaos”
As a drama that explores the meaning of love, marriage, and family, “Matrimonial Chaos” is full of relatable situations and gives room for thoughts on the subject. In particular, the drama offers many memorable lines that stick with viewers, allowing them to reflect and look back on their own lives.
Here are five snippets of daily conversations from the drama that have touched viewers:
1. “The people that you think about right away living together — those are the people that are your family.”
In this situation, Kang Hwi Roo (played by Bae Doona) exploded at her ex-husband Jo Seok Moo (played by Cha Tae Hyun). She told him, “The people that you think about right away living together — those are the people that are your family.” If there was something good happening in her life, he was the person she wanted to do it with — in other words, family.
2. “When you’re close, you forget it. That you are strangers.”
This line came up in a conversation between Kang Hwi Roo and Jin Yoo Young (played by Lee El), Jo Seok Moo’s ex-girlfriend. One thing that both women had in common was that Jo Seok Moo had hurt them with carelessly tossed words. On her ex-husband, Kang Hwi Roo commented, “I thought about why he’s like that. It’s because everyone is [technically] strangers with each other. But when you’re close, you forget it. That you are strangers.”
3. “When you become family with someone, it’s similar to wiping the floor.”
Go Mi Sook (played by Moon Sook) was telling Kang Hwi Roo a family story when this particular line of dialogue emerged. She shared, “When you become family with someone, it’s similar to wiping the floor. Whenever you wipe it, you see flaws that you don’t see every day. That’s why you clean it, cover it up, and wipe it.” She explained that even if you become family, you still need to have sincerity.
4. “I love him, but I don’t like him.”
Kang Hwi Roo said this about Jo Seok Moo, when she talked about how she didn’t like him but was also worried about him. When Im Si Ho (played by Wi Ha Joon) asked her if she still loved her ex-husband, Kang Hwi Roo answered, “I love him, but I don’t like him.” Through this simple comment, she showed just how complicated love can be.
5. “In any case, beginnings need support.”
When Kang Hwi Roo made the final decision to get divorced, Go Mi Sook threw her a divorce party. She told her, “If the marriage registration is the beginning of a marriage, then the divorce papers are the beginning of a divorce. It’s going to take time to recover. In any case, beginnings need support.” Through these words, she advised her to think of divorce as not the end of something, but the beginning.
