Woman Marries Man She Met Online, Discovers He’s Secretly Rich

One woman married a guy she had met online and had a relationship for just 5 months, but she would be quite surprised to discover that he’s actually been keeping a big secret from her: he’s crazy rich!

Nguyen Van Anh, a Vietnamese woman, looks gorgeous and has had a lot of admirers even when she was in school, yet she never really got interested in any of these guys. For most of her adult life, she was single.

After graduating from Hanoi University of Science and Technology in 2015, she became a successful career woman. She felt there was something ‘missing’ in her life, yet she didn’t know what it was.

In May 2016, she was just browsing through an idol’s Facebook page when she spotted a man in the background. She doesn’t even know the guy but she felt the urge to message her idol about him, asking for an introduction to this stranger.

The said idol’s curiosity was probably piqued by Nguyen’s question and got the two together. The man was Dang Tuan. The two would soon connect on social media and a whirlwind romance began, despite the distance between them; while Nguyen lives in Vietnam, Dang is based in Russia.

By November, the two were officially a couple. They loved talking to each other and spent hours on the phone. After 5 months of the long-distance relationship, they decided to get married.

Nguyen’s parents disapproved of the union, especially because they feel that the two do not really know each other that much. Dang flew to Vietnam and eventually convinced Nguyen’s parents that he’s truly in love with their daughter and was determined to spend the rest of his life with her.

Now that they had her parents’ blessing, the couple began their wedding preparations – while Nguyen was prepared to have a simple wedding, she was surprised at the lavish plans her would-be husband made. She discovered that he’s actually very rich business who manages a popular international brand.

The two got married in a 5-star hotel in Hanoi, Vietnam last April 2017 and are now based in Russia.

Dang admitted he hid his wealth on purpose because he didn’t want this to affect the course of their relationship – and he was finally able to find a woman who loved him for what he was, not because he was crazy rich!

She truly felt for the student when the girl whispered whether she could rent the lowest price gown but can only give Php30 as downpayment. It was her allowance for the entire day, but the kid wanted so much to join the school activity.

Rica decided to help out, especially after learning about the job of the child’s mother. She didn’t just let the kid borrow a gown for free – she even picked one of their most beautiful creations!

And while the gown actually costs Php5,000 to rent, as stated in one of Rica’s comments to netizens asking for the gown’s price, she let the girl use it for free. The young lady looks so lovely in the gorgeous gown!

While Rica did not reveal the girl’s name or show her face on the post, a lot of netizens were happy over the kind deed. Many are also saying that it would be great if the girl would realize what Rica had done and ‘pay back’ the kindness when she gets older and finds a job.

One Guy Caught Cheating with Two Other Ladies after Girls Posted on “My Day”

One girl catches her boyfriend cheating with two other ladies – in the same restaurant and wearing the same clothes! She supposedly caught wind of his activities after the other ladies posted on their “My Day”.

Hannah Blaine Gaas, according to her Facebook profile, is a student of Cruise Ship Management at José Rizal University and lives in Parañaque but hails from Maasin, Southern Leyte. In the post on Valentine’s Day, she angrily slams a certain “Mark”, supposedly her boyfriend for cheating on her with two other ladies.

She discovered the situation when the two ladies reportedly posted on “My Day” photos of their date with the same guy. He appears to have given them the same gift, a huge brown teddy bear, and even brought them to the same restaurant!

Nagkahulihan na sa Valentines! Sabi ko na ayaw ko mag myday baka pareho tayo ng jowa e. Tatlo pa kami pinagsabay dinala mo pa kami sa parehong lugar magkaiba lang schedule hanep! Ano na Mark?” Hannah wrote.

Soon, the other girls in the photos would react angrily to the post, angrily sharing their sentiments about catching their guy dating two other girls!

Kalma lang girls lahat ata tayo kabet,” one of the girls commented.

How he managed to date three different women on the same day at the same restaurant was rather puzzling! Moreover, a number of netizens are saying that he should have the decency to come clean to these ladies and to also change his clothes! It’s like he’s just trying to date everyone and check who’s the best.

But eagle-eyed netizens would soon realize that, perhaps, this is just a prank and that the three ladies might actually know each other and were together on the “date”. It seems that the three are actually good friends and just had fun taking photos with the same guy, creating the “cheating” story…

What’s “My Day”?

“My Day” is a type of post on Facebook that is only posted for 24 hours as a “story”. It can be seen by the uploader’s friends for 24 hours before it disappears, unless the user sets the “My Day” posts to get automatically saved. In contrast, regular Facebook posts are permanent, unless the user deletes the items.

Wise Mom Lets Kids Have the Phones They Wanted on an Installment Basis

Entrepreneur Michelle Mangahas has three kids: Mark, 14, Mika, 11, and Matthew, 6. Just like many other kids these days, Michelle’s children wanted to have a new smartphone that could take great photos, but she only gave them old phones in the past.

The single mom would later let the kids have the phones they wanted, as long as they agreed to pay on an installment basis. Yay or nay?

Mommy Michelle told Smart Parenting that her kids actually have old phones when they asked to buy a new model that sells for Php10,000.

I told them I didn’t see a valid reason why a 14-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl would need such expensive phones. I also told them they already had phones, which should be enough for school research and a little bit of gaming,” she narrated.

But the kids reasoned out that their old phones weren’t so good. Mark said the phone that cost them Php2,700 to buy took “low quality photos”. Mika received hers for free from Mommy Michelle’s postpaid plan when she completed school as an achiever. But it’s 2 years old.

I told my kids na hindi obligasyon ng magulang na bigyan ng phones ang anak nila. Ang obligasyon ko is to feed them and send them to school,” Mommy Michelle explained.

Although kaya ko naman sila bigyan, sinasabi ko sa kanila na ang daloy ng pera walang kasiguraduhan. Kailangan mag-ready sa posibleng panahon na walang gaanong income.

Because she had taught the kids, particularly Mark and Mika, early on to save money for future needs, they were able to fork out Php3,700 and Php5,000 in savings, respectively. This money went to their phone fund, but they are supposed to pay their mom in installment for the rest of the phone amount they borrowed from her.

Although she doesn’t impose a strict deadline, she continues to remind them of their payments. So far, Mika is the one who pays up the installment faster despite getting a smaller allowance compared with Mark.

Mark has a harder time sa paghuhulog. Sabi niya malakas siyang kumain ‘di hamak sa kapatid niya, so mas kaunti natitira sa baon niya,” Mommy Michelle shared. She doesn’t mind as long as the kids are responsible enough to pay up when they can.

What a good way to teach financial responsibility.

What’s the Difference Between Installment and Layaway?

Both are types of loan that is paid over time, with smaller amounts of scheduled payments instead of a one-time payment. However, the customer can already use or get the item while still paying for an installment loan while the layaway item can only be received once the full loan is paid up.
