I was kinda forced into marriage by my parents, when I was 29. They berated and berated me about giving them a grandchild. What I didn't know was that they already HAD a grandchild, from my younger sister, born out of wedlock and given up for adoption at our Mother's order, legal because my sister was a few months shy of 18, when I was away in the Army. My sister didn't tell me this until we were both in our 40s. She doesn't know what became of him.
So I was pressured into getting married, a total disaster. And after my divorce my parents pressured me again, threatening to withhold their money (I couldn't live on an Army Major's pay) if I didn't marry again and give them grandchildren. I did remarry, and gave them 2 grandsons.
Ironically, I never saw the money. My Mother died first, who had the greater fortune, and my Father proceeded to gamble her money and his away, at Vegas and racetracks, and give it to his mistresses. Millions squandered, and my sister & I ended up with a few hundred thousand each, the family fortune gone.
So today I'm poor. Having married when I shouldn't have, doing what I was told as the good soldier I am, and ending in poverty. At least I've had a couple of great gay partners, one deceased and the other still with me. Thank gawd I'm no longer in a position where anyone can force me to marry a girl.
