Couples Court: She’d Have to Give Up Her Inheritance to Marry Him — Should She?
Couples say it all the time: “I wouldn’t trade you for a million dollars!”
But they’re usually talking hypothetically. What if you really did have to give up a million dollars — or more! — to be with the one you love?
That’s what this week’s Couples Court plaintiff is wrestling with …
Dear Morning Bull Pen:
I’ve been dating my boyfriend for nearly three years now. I love him with all my heart and think he’s going to ask me to marry him.
But he does not share the same faith I do — and my parents have told me that I need to marry someone, who follows the same religion. If I don’t, they will remove me from their wills. They are millionaires many times over.
I love my man and want to spend the rest of my life with him. If I do, though, I can kiss my HUGE inheritance goodbye.
Has anyone ever been in this position? What do I do? Pick love or money?
That’s a lot of money. But her guy sounds like he might be worth a fortune, too.
What should she do, Bull Pen jurors?
