Rules of dating my daughter
I'm not sure if he really knows what Rachel does for a living.
If that's the case, I'd be curious to see how she explains to him about the money she makes.
Following a honeymoon, we established our first home. I had taken business finance classes in college, with a specialty certification in financial management.
I was fortunate enough to get a ground-floor job in a big brokerage house in a large city just 25 miles from our little small town.
The extra minutes getting ready were well worth it! But I would have been happy just being Wesley -- the ordinary guy with a beautiful wife and a houseful of kids, which we would have lovingly raised together.
Call me old fashioned, but one of my goals was to have the white picket fence surrounding the white-sided two story farm-style house on the big corner lot in a nice, quiet town.
All we could afford was a two-bedroom apartment with a tiny kitchen - Mandy didn't know how she was going to be able to cook for me there. We were so in love that even if we had to live in a hostel, we would have made it work.
I found my job challenging at first, but eventually fell into a good "groove," where the accounts I managed were doing quite well.
It was her that I was waiting on as the clock moved past .That quiet town could have been the town I was raised in, and that would have been fine by me.I was an only child, born to a husband and wife who were a very small-town traditional couple.Finally, at about , she called out, "Be honest, tell me what you think! You work hard, you make plans, you start finding the components to make those plans into reality, only then to find out that sometimes reality has its own plan, and it doesn't ever consult with you." She stepped out of the guest bedroom, and my jaw dropped -- she was the most beautiful creature I had ever seen! I wasn't expecting the penthouse apartment, the daily car service to take me wherever I wanted to go, the multi-million dollar business that makes its money by making money for other people. Granted, it has taken lots of hard work plus more than a couple of times when I blindly took a risk, only to have that risk pay off in a big way.
