Some women got systematically fooled because they are too naive. And it’s not because they ‘re too young. C. is 47 year-old and she gets fooled a lot by everyone around her. At the office, she ‘s the one who ends up with a lot of loans because she lends to the baddest borrowers of her company. They never pay you back, and everyone knows it. She’s also the one who give a hand every time she’s asked for, but ended up with multiple tasks because it’s always the laziest ones who ask for her help.
With her kids, it’s also a catastrophe. She can’t say no to her oldest son, so he’s the most spoiled kid I’ve ever met.
In her love life, it’s the same. She’s married to an engineer who’s been sent for a mission abroad. They barely see each other during the year because of that. She just told me she took a pause in her career to spend three months with her husband. But I learned that he’s not fond of that decision. In other words, he prefers to be alone (maybe he has a mistress where he lives) while she has to take care of their three kids. How delicate he is …
In my previous job, I met a desperate woman who ended up with nothing left except her eyes for crying because she didn’t sign a prenup with her ex-husband. The problem was that he ran a company that went bankrupt, so everything they owned was sold or used to reimburse the many debts of his entreprise, including her own accounts.
When you’re really in love and decide to marry, you don’t necessarily think about the worst, especially financial problems. So signing a prenup appears to some women like an act of high treason towards their future husband. Then, when it’s over, it’s the drama.
Love and money never make a good match. We can’t live without the two, however.
Did you ever get fooled like that?
