As beneficial as it was for you, I feel like this story sends the wrong message. Finding a partner shouldn’t lead to improving your life. Improving your life should lead to finding a partner. And I don’t doubt the love you have for your wife but there is a predatory element to the fact that you chose to pursue women in an impoverished country because their standards would be lesser than the standards of the women you were failing to attract at home. And I’m not even speaking on the age difference. It would’ve been questionable even if she was the same age or older. The age difference really isn’t the main concern here though it is a large one. That should be telling.
