Ever wonder how some people have amazing relationships without even really having to work for them? Well, there’s more to it than just magic.
Marriage is a big life decision that you should not make without a lot of thought and reflection. But it astounds me that when a single person creates a list of qualities they’d like in a life partner, they usually leave out the most important ones!
Such is the case of a popular circulating online about a man rejected by a rich man’s daughter because he didn’t make enough money to support her lavish lifestyle.
Ten years later, the two accidentally bumped into each other. The ending of the story is absolutely unexpected, but it will give you a valuable lesson in life.
A poor boy was in love with a rich man’s daughter.
Overcome with his love for the girl, the boy proposed to her. However, the rich girl derisively rejected him and said, “Your monthly salary is equivalent to my daily expenses. How do you expect me to marry someone like you? I can never love you so forget about me. Go find and marry someone else of your level.”
Despite being rejected so hurtfully, for some reason, the boy could not forget her so easily.
About 10 years later, they ran into each other accidentally in a shopping mall.
She immediately recognized him and said: “Hey, how are you? I’m now married to a very smart man, and his salary is $15,700 per month! Can you beat that?”
Her cold words felt even more painful this time, but the man said nothing.
As he was turning to leave, the woman’s husband came back to her side. But before the lady could say a word, her husband immediately recognized the man and said:
“Sir? G-good afternoon! I see you’ve met my wife!”
“Good afternoon too, Mr…?”, said the man.
“Mr. Carter, Sir!”
The husband then turned to his wife and said: “Dear, I’d like you to meet my boss. He owns the $100 million project I’ve been working on!”
Stunned by the turn of events, the woman was not able to say anything back.
But the man smiled and said, “Well, Mr. Carter. I’ve got to get going. I have important things to attend to. It was splendid seeing you today. Have a great day!”
For a few moments, the couple just stared at the man as he walked away. Then the woman asked her husband in disbelief, “That was your boss?”
“Yes, dear. He’s a very humble person, but his life is quite a sad story They said he once loved a lady but she dumped him because he was just a poor boy back then. Because of that, he worked really hard. And because he’s smart, he became successful. Now he’s a multimillionaire who earns millions of dollars a month. Unfortunately, though, he couldn’t move on from that heartbreak and remains unmarried still. How lucky would that lady have been if she had married that man?”
The woman was stunned and couldn’t utter a word.
There’s no denying that there are some who prioritize something else when looking for an ideal partner – those who tend to check the contents of their potential partner’s bank account first before knowing their personality and character. As a result, they end up eternally doomed to drama and disappointment.
