YOU (South Africa) - - LIFESTYLE - In a way, what has hap­pened here is that you’ve been caught in your own lie. Mar­ry­ing some­one only for their money and sim­ply pre­tend­ing to love them in or­der to do so is also a lie. So you and your hus­band both lied to each other. You have to ac­knowl­edg

I’ve been mar­ried to my hus­band for a year. When we started dat­ing he led me to be­lieve he’s rich and that I would have a life of lux­ury if I chose to be with him. I’m a model and men find me very at­trac­tive, so I had the cream of the crop to choose from.

I grew up in a very poor home and made my­self a prom­ise that one day I’d marry a rich man and have a won­der­ful, easy life. The prob­lem is my hus­band lied to me. He’s not af­flu­ent at all – he just pre­tended to be well-off.

Af­ter we got mar­ried I soon re­alised he was liv­ing a lie. We’ve now lost our home and he has no in­come so I’m ac­tu­ally worse off than I was while grow­ing up. I don’t only want to di­vorce him, I want to take re­venge. What can I do? I don’t love him but was will­ing to be with him as long as he was rich! Anony­mous, email
