Another Cautionary Tale

We women are taught that –especially in marriage–we are to serve men. What rubbish! What a trap!   This isn’t to say that the woman shouldn’t contribute. But what’s really happening can be a lot more complicated than we think it is. Here’s a true story told to me by a financial advisor for many entrepreneurs:

“I’ve noticed a pattern,” he volunteered, “that when the husband is committed to a start up, the wife often works to support them. Then when the business is funded, the man wants a divorce. He wants a whole new life of unbridled success. He doesn’t want to be reminded of a time when he needed help, and his wife reminds him of that.”
