Marrying for the Money

I have a few friends who have done this over the years and it just never seems worth it to me. My friend Todd married a guy ten years ago who has a lot of money -- along with severe untreated ADHD, an alcohol problem, and a jealous, controlling nature. I asked him how they got together and Todd said he was turning 40, his mom and dad had died, his painting wasn't really taking off, so he decided to take the guy up on his offer of life in grand style. Another friend was kept for a decade by his sugar daddy who had severe emotional problems, and an alcohol problem that led to his death He gave this guy, Dan, total freedom. He could even keep lovers on the side. After the wealthy guy drank himself to death on their tenth anniversary, Dan was left completely out of the will and threatened by the old man who controlled the money. So Todd is still living with his husband and Dan is alone now, back working, not as young as he used to be. Does anyone know of a person in a relationship based on financial security rather than love that is happy? I sure don't. There's always a catch
