Some people say you only know the true character of a woman when she has no money and the true character of a man when he has money.
This morning on Beat fm on a show that discusses marriage and relationships a guy called in and said that when he makes money he's not going to settle for just woman. The host asked how many he'd want? Ten? He said no, maybe two or three and his wife should be prepared to share. One of the guests said ; don't make your wife pray for God never to bless you. A little conversation ensued and then the caller backtracked and said he was only joking.
I gave it some thought and I realized that there must be wives who wish God had never blessed their husbands with money because it must be hard to believe that this uncontrollable creature was once their loving, faithful and attentive lovers.
Earlier in the week *B and I caught up and we started talking about this guy that we've known for years. We recalled when he was single and broke and how he was the bestest-most caring-most faithful boyfriend. But now that he's chopping oyel money he nor wan gree again. This year alone I cannot count how many times he's asked for us to take different trips around the country with promises of first class tickets and five star hotels. During Easter he suggested we go to Ghana and for my birthday he asked if I wanted to go to Dubai. Not one week passes that he doesn't call me with one tale of love and lust or the other. Mind you when this guy was broke he never as much as winked at me and was fully devoted to his girlfriend. Now I know one of he's girlfriends who's actually married, he spoils her with money and the fine things of life and she doesn't seem like like she'll be going anywhere soon.
I used to know some guy who had never cheated on wifey but just when I was singing his praises he told me that the only reason he'd never cheated was because he couldn't afford to. He said with the high cost of living in the UK, after taking care of his wife and three kids there's hardly any money left for a mistress. But the minute he "blows" he knows with all certainty that he will cheat.
Last night my friend said "I don't care if my husband cheats along as he has a lot of money and spoils me. After I've bought all the gold, designer bags, taken several trips abroad, put the kids in expensive private schools, bought landed property then if there's any money left he can use it on his mistress." Actually she is not the only one I know who's made this kind of statement.
What is it about money that makes it difficult for most men to stay put?
Ladies would you rather have a faithful and devoted but struggling husband who can barely make ends meet OR a unfaithful wealthy husband who's a great provider???
