People put up with crap from rich men and beautiful women that they wouldn’t put up with from anyone else. And rich men and beautiful women know it.
So whether you’re talking about extreme money or extreme looks, you’re talking about a great equalizing factor that is the only thing that allows certain people to find partnership. And you know what? For a domineering and tempestuous entrepreneur, or an insecure and dim ingénue, maybe it really doesn’t matter why they’re married.
He gets his showpiece, she gets her diamonds, and both get the relationship they deserve.
But for people of depth – the beautiful woman with the heart of gold, the wealthy man who values conversation over cars – this is always going to be a lingering question: Why does this person want to be with me?
Which brings us back to you, Lisa.
Would your boyfriend have proposed to you after six months if you weren’t pregnant? Probably not. But the fact that you got pregnant, followed by his immediate joyous reaction that he wants to marry you to create a family, seems to be a pretty good indicator that he truly loves you
Yes, things have been sped up a bit unnaturally. But unless you have issues with him that might break you up – he’s a cheater, he’s financially unstable, he doesn’t wear deodorant – I wouldn’t spend much time worrying about why he’s with you.
Instead, I’d focus on making your relationship into a success – rather than rushing into marriage. And if, in six months, he’s not the man he seemed to be, you won’t be legally entangled the way you were with your first husband.
Congratulations, good luck, and stay in touch…
