This 90 Year Old Man That Secretly Divorced His Wife 20 Years Ago And Stayed With Her Is A Relationship Guru
Metro- Cristina Carta Villa, 59, had been living an amazing life alongside Gabriel Villa, the 90-year-old man she had been happily married to for 20 blissful years.
Or so she thought, because it turns out, they weren’t actually married. Not for as long as Cristina had thought, anyway. Gabriel had actually secretly divorced her just months after their wedding, in an attempt – it is alleged – to shield his assets.
They had met at a friend’s house, and were quick to marry in a New York ceremony in 1994. Cristina left her life behind as an Italian literature teacher at Boston college to be with Gabriel, a lawyer and travel agent more than 30 years older than her.
But it looks as though Gabriel didn’t quite trust his younger wife, and secretly arranged for a divorce in the Dominican Republic.
According to Cristina, she had no idea that this had happened – and she had not consented to the Dominican divorce.
He hired lawyers to represent both Cristina and himself and blamed ‘incompatibility of temperaments’ as the reason behind the divorce, Cristina claimed in a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit, according to The New York Post. She only found out about it in November when a tax bill arrived for their Manhattan home and her name wasn’t on it.
All hail Gabriel Villa. A man that understands what it takes to remain in a happy, fulfilling relationship. Look at that smile. You don't think that man knows he pulled a fast one and it likely added decades to his "marriage"? Being contractually obligated to one person for the rest of your life is the quickest path to resentment. It's not even the shared finances or the long term commitment to an individual that destroys marriages, it's the idea of it. Men don't need to be free. They need the peace of mind that comes with the fictitious feeling of freedom. It's pretty much the same reason that single guys will continue to fuck one girl for months at a time, but refuse to put a title on it. They think there is no going back once you take the next step in a relationship.
Guess what guys?! Gabriel just changed the game! You can let out a little slack in the ball and chain as long as you are clever enough to do it without your significant other noticing. No harm, no foul. What Cristina doesn't know won't kill her. In fact, her inattentiveness was probably to her benefit. Gabriel's old, rich ass was probably a terrible husband. Always taking out the frustrations of feeling trapped out on his much younger wife. Getting in fights over the most petty of disagreements that were secretly products of his desire to rid himself of the perceived shackles of matrimony. I bet this relationship became so much better for both parties involved once he unknowingly became her boyfriend again. Get mad if you want Cristina, but he did this for you. He did this for both of you. He's a 90 year old man. He needs far too much TLC to suggest going your separate ways. He was never going to leave, he just wanted to know that he could at a moment's notice. Most people that walked down the aisle with each other can't say the same, and that's why most of those people are divorced and hate each other's fucking guts. Sure, he took her name off the deed and she is likely going to inherit jack shit once he inevitably croaks, but if her main gripe is the money then she's only reinforcing her ex-husband's decision not to leave her any.
