My Story: From Minimum Wage to Millionaire Mommy

I was a divorce lawyer. I’d change tables if I were you. Doing divorce was like spending 7 years in hell. The clients were all damned sinners, and I was one of the devils.

But that was the bad old days of fiat money. Now there are dozens of love-based cryptocurrencies — LoveCoin, CupidCoin, Erosium, Nubilo — with market caps in the mid nine-figures.

There are also other significant reasons why a younger guy might especially enjoy dating an older woman.

We have all become guilty of thinking the grass is greener over the fence. I can attest that it is not. I also blame no-fault divorce. If you want the fairy tale 60 year marriage where you hold hands in the park when you retire rich and happy, then you need to realize that not only is this very rare in our economic times, but that couple that you are judging us by had plenty of rough times where they had to buckle down and wait it out.
