A 9-month Scam


“People claiming I married for money - I'd hardly
call settling balance of 2nd hand car worthwhile”
[ice-cold parasite, R 200 000 spent when her
maintenance and debt taken into account,
not bad for a 9-month scam]

“Don't take marriage seriously - treat as business”
[she married for financial gain, if not agreed upon
by both parties in writing as part of marriage con-
tract, if she did not honour conventions, it was all
false pretences - marriage is null and void]

“Parent 1st, all else 2nd” [if this was not a specific
part of marriage vows or pre-nuptial contract
that husband has no marital privileges, it’s a
cop-out, made up after she pawned off
ALL her debt onto you]

“Can't bring commitment I expect, the deal is
off” [marriage agreed as business deal? What
commitment, agreed upon by both parties in
writing, was not honoured? ]

“Lack of emotional intelligence and personal
growth” [What behaviour constitutes lack of
above? Vague accusation has to be specified,
what previous agreement was broken here? ]

A constipated face in a confection of a wedding
dress, lack of talent to play role of happy bride,
no inner light – false pretences means she is a
parasite, out to suck you dry!

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
