I know a gal, super entitled, who married into a major land-owning family in my area. Like 500+acres owning.
The family she married into has already put their land into trust. Those who continue the line will continue to inherit what has been built.
Still she says she will never have children. Wants to get her tubes tied. Blah, blah, blah me, me, me! As she said all this, for his family’s sake I agreed — get those tubes tied! You go sista!
Because as she and I wrapped up a group business meeting at a local watering hole, she was already cozying up to a guy at the bar who was by every indication a total cad at best.
Her husband’s family strongly objected to the marriage and held it off even for several years. But she (and he) prevailed.
I find it tragic but also illuminating that rather than secure her position via future generations she seems hell bent on not only terminating that for herself but also her husband, who is currently the oldest son of the oldest son.
Hopefully the cad boys will be there for her. But probably not.
When she bails I have a feeling the oldest son will find a more than willing life mate to secure his future line.
If he can believe in it then, that is.
