Reasons I’m Marrying For Money
He made it himselfDrake said it best: started from the bottom now he’s here. No, but seriously: he’s worked his entire life to create what he has. No hand outs. No free rides. He’s a true blooded entrepreneur who had an idea that created shared value to his team and customers. To me, this is the best kind of money you can have. He is in the drivers seat but isn’t afraid to roll up his sleeves in order to create the next round of growth. He doesn’t protect it. Or hedge it. He has smart money principles that I respect. This is important.
He’s created a lifestyle that I could only have dreamed ofLet’s not pretend. I was young when we started dating and had never seen the world, shopped in a designer store, or known the difference between cut, color, carat, and clarity. He’s taught me everything he knows, we’ve seen more places than I knew existed, and I have more things than I know what to do with. I say this with the utmost humility: I appreciate everything he generously gives me. I talked about this earlier this week and it just needs to be stated again: I am the luckiest woman on the planet and the lifestyle he provides is not lost on me.
He gives and gives and givesYou can’t give what you don’t have. Seems silly but it’s true. The more you have, the greater your ability is to give. This was the very first lesson he taught me when I started working for him and he lives this principle. Brandon is a giver – not just to me, but to all of the people he loves and the causes we’re passionate about. He truly believes that giving is better than receiving and I watch him live this core value time and time again. I believe he gives freely because he comes from a place of abundance. So yes – I am marrying for money. And love. And trust. And inspiration. The list goes on because our relationship is just like yours – too complicated to simplify it down to a couple components. And honestly, people get married for all sorts of crazy reasons – why does money get a bad rap? Money is more than the things you buy – it’s the philosophy behind the person who has it. From the outside, it’s easy to make assumptions that younger women in age gap relationships with older men are willing to forgo the “love” in lieu of the “money”. But what I’ve learned is you can’t summarize why people choose to spend their lives together by face value. It may look like money, to an outsider, but the deepest, most connected and human part of you needs to give people more credit. It’s never love or money. It’s both – and so much more. See you tomorrow. Xoxo Natalie
