It should no longer be called divorce, it should be called 'cashing out'.

Step 1: Marry a billionaire guy

Step 2: Wait for several years until the relationship wears and you can blame the billionaire for everything bad that happens to you

Step 3: Take a divorce with half his wealth.

Money? Stonks!!!
Retirement plan? Stonks!!!

How sad to see that even when you possess so much & don't have to struggle with the fay to day challenges like punching a clock, providing for the family, & fighting to be positive under the pressure-- a good marriage can be elusive. I wish them luck in dealing with their grief, the death of their long relationship!! 😢😢

I question myself every day if I already found my soulmate ever since I met an exchange student a few days after my Fall ‘19 semester at USC ended. I took her on a date and at the end of the night, I made on a move on her by playing “what are the odds?” I asked her “what are the odds we end the night in a kiss? 1-10?” We played and both said 6...

I just knew she was gonna say 6. She asked me how I knew but I bs-ed the explanation. For some reason I didn’t want to tell her the real reason why.

Ever since then, the number 6 has been a very significant number in my life. A friend of mine taught me how to play a Kuwaiti card game called Kout Bo 6 and now I’ll be implementing it into my first clothing collection.

Also, we often here and see “6 feet apart” nowadays thanks to Covid. There’s more. This year, the USC basketball team, who were ranked #6, scored 66 points on their last game in March Madness.

If you’re wondering how I knew she was gonna say 6, it’s because we talked about our birthdays earlier that day. I remember telling her mine birthday is on June 5th and her’s is on May 21st. I then mentioned how I enjoyed having my birthday in the middle of the year because I can anticipate my Christmas presents half a year later.

The craziest part is that my student apartment number seems to be the root of this significant number 6. My apartment number is 6125 and I live on the 6th floor. Also notice the numbers in my apt #. The “6” and “5” make up my birthday June 5th. On the other hand, the “5”, “2”, and “1” make up her birthday May 21st.

If you want to read more about this, I wrote a letter to my dad that involves this entire story. The letter can be found on my Reddit @Mataeus_6everly. Also, if you enjoy photography, feel free to follow my photography account @filmbymataeus. Thank you! ✨

NO one knows what’s going on in a marriage from the outside. Frequently, one of the spouses dosen’t know either.
Lack of communication and inability for emotional intimacy is what kills a marriage. After awhile, due to aging, mostly, the physical side is over or is greatly decreased. You have to have an awesome connection and friendship to survive the changes that a long term marriage brings. If you are not the best of friends, you don’t have anything left.

Today, we live in an environment where we are surrounded by various electronic gadgets like televisions, computers, and mobile phones and we are so used to them, we can’t get away from them. Sometimes we waste too much of our time unnecessarily and we can’t even figure out where our time is going. Parents also get concerned about what their children are doing on their phones, whether they are using their time wisely or not. For students, it may seem difficult to track where they are investing their time or what they are doing on their phones. If you are facing any of these problems, then you are in the right place. WILL_IAM_STONE they did a great job for me.

I notice the trend of high divorce rates among the extremely wealthy. My guess is one of the people in the relationship think they’re going to be happy because of financial freedom. It doesn’t work like that at all. You can be married to the richest person on earth yet still be the most depressed and suicidal. People don’t get married for love anymore, they do it out of necessity and it’s sad. When you find that one person that’s meant for you, it’s literally impossible to go on living without them, which is where the term “soul-mate” comes from..

Why bother now. I guess they don’t believe in forever love. If you have been married this long might as well just stick with it. Then again they can afford to lead separate lives and be comfortable.

Nice video though, If you have any feeling that your partner is seeing someone else? The first step is to ask your partner directly, If he/she keep denying and you have this strong feeling or still suspicious that he/ she is really cheating, then you have a lot on your side to deal with I think it is very common for them to say No, even when they are, but saying no isn’t an excuse not to investigate if it’s true or not, if someone is cheating on you it’s really because they don’t want you to know about it. And you can’t have your cake and eat it at the same times. Never !!! You should contact a professional & reliable hacker, who once did a great job for me when I was going through such Circumstances....hire elite hacks via IG WILL_IAM_STONE

Last week I found out my spouse had always been texting this woman also. He said she lives in Brisbane but we stay in Melbourne then I didn't bother after I did some investigation I found out that she lives in Melbourne too I couldn't just think straight I was hurt and feel like my soul was taking away we have no kids yet and we have been married for 10 years now when there is not enough money I make sure he finish schooling and got a good job, finding out about his affairs with this woman is not easy for me because have hired a lot of private investigators but Keith(mediahackerstech) made all this secret came out plainly to me
