After several months of this long distance romance, they decided to get married. Together they built their dream home on property that Todd already owned with mostly her money.I should point out that she was thirteen years his senior. Marcy quit her prestigious position with a major law firm and moved to Jamaica bringing with her several hundred thousand U. Marcy would be living in that home as a loving stay at home wife while Todd continued with his successful taxi operation at one of the hotels in Montego Bay.He also became abusive but she was able to move away from him before she became another victim like Marcy.Two other women were forever sending money to Jamaica because their men said they needed cash for one emergency or another.The most dramatic example I can share with you is one my wife and I were very much involved in.Marcy and Todd, not their real names, met in Jamaica while having breakfast in one of the tourist restaurants.This didn’t seem to bother her because he knew how to make her very happy. Then they bought a coaster bus which could hold about 40 passengers to be used as a daily bus service to and from Kingston.They also bought a top of the line Toyota Mark II for her to use. Several months later, the relationship started to sour.
The more Marcy saw Todd the stronger her love for him grew.
It seems sometimes they could get along and other times they couldn’t.
Some of the men try to marry foreign women as a ticket off the island.
Then there are those macho men who are just on an ego trip so they can brag to their friends about their foreign conquests. I can’t believe that these are the only war stories of love gone awry. Jamaican men have a bad reputation of being philanders.
On the other foot I know of one Jamaican woman who tried very hard to get an English man to marry her so she could move to the U. Some of them have several girlfriends and baby mothers on the side.
I want every woman who comes to Jamaica to enjoy the talents of these smooth talking men to be very careful in getting too involved with them without stepping back and honestly evaluating the motives of these men.
