When You Marry for Money

'Rick' married for money. His wife is not attractive, not nice, wears the pants in every single aspect. She took him away with her and when he left he told us, he probably wouldn't be able to write much. He hasn't. But every so often, when he really feels alone and sad, he'll post on Facebook. Item after item, jokes or photographs, or videos or whatever he's picked up on the 'Net. He has 'no time' to write because to send us an email he would have to say something. And he can't say anything. We 'read' his jokes, photographs, as loneliness and a kind of regret that money was so import to him he sold himself.

Funny. How could you marry for money? I wish some people understood the word 'Marriage'. It's a pity #SMH

It is the choice he made and sadly one he lives with. He could always leave. He doesn't have to stay and be miserable. Poor Rick.

He likes the money, he likes what it buys. He hasn't yet reached the stage where self-respect overrides

@tallawah well then it is hard to feel sorry for him. Money is not everything.

@Happy2BeMe it is hard, in a way, but if you know how he grew up, how he tried, and how marrying this woman was the 'only door in the wall'

That is just too bad, but it is what he chose. I know people like that and they are miserable.

One wishes that he gets some skill or opens some kind of business to become independent

Depends. You have some people that money isn't that important to them
