I know is a painter in his early 70s. When he was about 30 years old, he looked for a wife. His family was very rich, but he didn’t want someone to marry him for his money. Every time he was introduced to a woman, he told her that he was poor and that married life would be very hard. Most weren’t interested until he met his present wife. She said, “Even if you don’t earn much money, it’s okay with me.” They got married and have been happy for more than 40 years.
