When you are immensely wealthy it is sometimes difficult to tell why the people outside your family are drawn to you.

Because most of them are drawn to you because of your wealth. And it does not matter how you happen to come by all that wealth. You could suddenly inherit it, win the lotto, or earn it through hard work. Once people know you have it, they will find a way to find you, it’s happened. So recently, when it was noted that Madonna’s soon to be ex husband, Guy Ritchie stated he wanted nothing from the divorce settlement with the ‘Material Girl,’ I was surprised.

Why? Because usually, most people, whether or not they entered a marriage with their own money, want something with a monetary value from the other person.

Or as one of my high school teachers put it when I told her I was missing something valuable from my belongings: ‘Some people want souvenirs.’

I commend Mr. Guy Ritchie for not wanting any of Madonna’s money. Especially when nowadays it seems as though being divorced from a wealthy person is looked upon as a way for the other party to obtain what he/she thinks is theirs.

On a personal note, I have never been married, but if I were to marry a wealthy person and that marriage ended in a divorce, I would want to walk away with none of that person’s wealth.

Because maybe what initially drew me to that person had nothing to do with their money. It could have been the way they talk, laugh, the way they made me laugh, the happy uplifting way I felt when I was around them etc…

No Gold digger here.
