The worst defect a man can have is the sting that remains one of the main causes of the failure of a relationship. But some couples are the exception, as is today’s story about an old woman who has endured her stingy husband for many years. However, after her death she wanted to honor the deceased’s wish to be buried with his money. And his gesture made good talk of her!
The sting is a trait that can hide many other negative traits of the person, including egoism, lack of empathy, lack of sharing, etc. Naturally, anyone is free to spend their money as they see fit, but things are a bit different when it comes to being in a relationship.
A fortune in a shoebox
As relayed by the magazine littlethings , a story told that a man had worked all his life to build his fortune. His wife says he loved money more than anything. When he became ill, the doctors told him he would not live long. The first thing he says to his wife is, ” Now, listen to me, when I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the coffin with me. Because I want to take all my money to the afterlife. The woman replied, ” Okay, I promise you .”
Shortly after, the husband died. The funeral was held at the local church. He was lying in the coffin, the woman was sitting next to his best friend. When they finished the ceremony, just before the funeral directors closed the coffin, the woman asked them to wait a minute. She had a shoebox with her that she placed in the casket. Then, the morticians locked the coffin and rolled it.
His friend said, “What’s this shoebox? “
The widow replied that he wanted to be buried with all his money, and to honor his promise she put it in it. Her friend was surprised that she buried her husband’s fortune in a shoebox!
The old woman said to her friend, “Well, it was a problem to put all the money in the box, so I put it on my account and I gave him a check! “
Whether this story is real or fictitious, it shows that the rickery has created a feeling of revenge in this widow who pushed her to act ingeniously to honor the wishes of her husband .
Unfortunately, some people give in to their more selfish emotions, wanting to enjoy life as they please, regardless of the impact on others. And one of the most common ways to do that is to succumb to the sting.
The impact of the sting on the couple
In the life of a couple if you are a stingy person, your requirements in a relationship are great but your willingness to meet the needs of others is limited. You want everything from your partner, including affection, attention, understanding and sympathy. You desperately need your mate’s love, but you remain upset and hostile to him because he does not provide you with what you need. Your resentment undermines the relationship while your sting removes your partner, the latter can even become unfaithful because he is always in search of a generous soul.
Couple relationships can not survive the sting for a long time. The latter, by its very nature, could trap relations and destroy them. Both are inherently incompatible.
