The trick, for an ugly girl in a first world nation, to marry a decent looking guy is to go abroad. Go to a 3rd World Country, where your nationality is of greater value than your bank balance, and find an attractive man, and buy him as a slave.
Ugly gets a man who looks pretty in her bed, a man who must obey her, please her, and suppress his ego for her.
It’s a boost for an ugly woman to be at some function and announce; “We’re leaving…” and her husband immediately rises and follows like a puppy.
This is what Claudia had with Errol. It was the ‘perfect’ relationship, in Simone’s eyes.
Simone was dazzled by Errol’s deference to her cousin and wanted that relationship. Wanted a man who was entirely dependent upon her, a man who attracted her.
Simone wanted a man who couldn’t leave her, upset her, in anyway hurt her; because if she put him out, he would be left homeless, penniless, with nothing.
Having seen Claudia and Errol, she looked for her own version. And found Damian.
