Energy and luck
It might be surprising that my ex-husband was much younger than me that people tell me. I have some stories around my last marriage in the sense.
First of all, none of people who got to know that I was marrying him as a 21 year old man was positive about my decision and my up coming marriage.
In Japan or the US, it didn’t matter. If I talked about my plans of marriage with the young man, people told me how crazy I was.
I know that his parents were not happy either. Not only I was already divorced once, but also I was 13 years older than him, and the marriage came when he just graduated from a college.
He skipped the first grade of the elementary school so he finished his educations early.
I thought that I was not going to marry again in my life when I was divorced in my 30s first time. As you may not know, I was pretty much expired as a great catch since I hit my 30 in Japan in the era.
Probably in a few months, this marriage proposal came to me. My family was happy for me of course because no one loves to have a crying heart broken single woman in the household.
I have to say that most of my friends laughed at me coldly.
However the relationship lasted for 20 years. I was separated in 2013 so in the marriage including the period before that, I was with him for over 15 years.
Three times longer than the first marriage and this marriage was a roller coaster for sure. My ex-husband just graduated from MIT and ended up with being very successful in the Wall Street !
There was a famous movie that a woman who got luck and her partners always get successful in the 90
