There is a former couple, Jennifer and Jerry that I have had an acquaintance with. Jerry is one of those artistic types, but he isn’t hard-left is is harmless. He has had on and off work throughout his life with odd construction type jobs, plus as a security guard. It has never paid that much. Jennifer, on theater hand, has had odd jobs also, never paying that much either.
Jennifer decided to divorce Jerry because he didn’t make enough money. Jennifer hung out with a semi-wealthy divorcee who would not commit, but was interested in other aspects of the relationship. Eventually because of her poverty, she left the area to go live with her parents out west.
Jerry, on the other hand, found his calling in life. He makes crafty objects that can sell for a reasonable amount of money. He is not rolling in the dough, but makes enough. He doesn’t have to try to support Jennifer any more.
When they were married, they shared an apartment, along with other expenses. This can mean a lot. In this case, Jennifer threw it all away in search of something better that never came.
Exit Question — How often does kind of thing happen?
