**This is a work of nonfiction based on an actual event experienced by me firsthand; used with permission.
My girlfriend said she couldn't marry me because my father is not so rich.
This is a true story. I've never been married before, and I have never been in a relationship, but she has.
After about 5 months of dating, we decided to move in together. Two months later, she found out my father isn't so rich financially, and he doesn't have much of his wealth. She says that this makes it very difficult for her to marry me.
My father has a good job and makes a decent living. He isn't loaded, but he isn't poor either. He has his personal property and pays for himself. But she is still scared about marrying me because I might be more like my father than I think I am, and I might end up being poor someday. She says it has nothing to do with me, but the fact that she thinks that because my dad is not rich almost guarantees that I will eventually be poor too.
I don't understand this point of view. She is not afraid that I will ever be poor; she just thinks that I will probably not be any better off because my dad isn't very rich.
My father looks after everything he can do. He is often home early and stays late. He tries his best to save, so I am happy to live with him and help out when I can, considering that he helps me out as much as he can.
She was really upset when we talked about it and told me that I was not the person she thought I was.
Maybe every girl wants there life secure and safe, but if I end up being a poor person, she will not be happy ever.
I'm glad she told me this because it made me aware of myself and what I need to work on. I'm working on it.
I hope that she will be able to see who I am one day and not see my father or me as a poor people.
There is no way I would ever want to marry someone who is only with me because they think I am rich. I have so much more to offer than my money.
I don't mind if someone can get along with my family, but if they are going to pick on them and think that they are too poor too, then it would never work out between us.
I think that the only reason anyone would want to marry me is that they like me. She should know that by now.
I think it's sad that any women that want to get married are only after the money.
There are more important things in life than how much money someone has.
Even though I would love to marry her, I understand why she doesn't want to. But I am still very hurt and sad about what she has said and what she thinks about my family and me.
