"Sorry for asking ....But if after some years you finally make the money you desire but nobody proposes to you and you’re 40 and unmarried... would you regret this decision you made?"
"You made a commendable decision by choosing to be a woman who would add value to her future partner rather than wanting to be a "burden" & also deciding not to leave your financial future at anyone's mercy. I pray you finda prepared man who would equally cherish you."
