Seriously How Did We Get To A Society Like This?

Thu Oct 02, 2008 4:01 am

(Non-argentines are excempt trom the title question, I doubt your societies have gotten as rotten as ours)

On the day when we find out girls were giving oral sex in their school uniforms at a gas station, now this gem arises from the dead...
 crazy   vomit 

http://www.diariouno.net.ar/contenidos/2008/10/01/noticia_0016.html

Last year Reinaldo Wabeke and Adelva Volpe made worldwide headlines when the couple got married in the city of Santa Fe. Why? The groom was 25, the bride.... 82 years old. Some may recall hearing about it. Of course public opinion around the world was of the view this marriage was pure gold-digging, since Volpe had a confortable pension.

Surprise, surprise, Mrs. ''Wabeke'' died just 25 days after their honeymoon in Brazil, from complication of pneumonia (a stroke). The now 26 year old widower has kept in complete silence since this 'tragic' news hit him (surely as a total shock).

Now, about a year later, Mr Wabeke has come out to a newspaper interview.

Literally. Wabeke has admitted in the interview that he is gay, is in a relationship, and says he plans to marry his new partner Cristian "as soon as the civil-union legislation in Santa Fe province becomes law".

Wabeke earns AR$ 2,900 in a goverment pension, plus income from the properties he inherited from his wife, which according to sources might bring an addition AR$ 4,000 to 5,000. He openly admits he does not work, he hasn't found a job that ''satifies'' him.

What a great example for future generations. What a disgusting human being.

He doesn't speak for society. He speaks for himself and no one else. There will always be a few bad apples that shine above the rest. This is one axample.

Disgusting? Possibly. Opportunistic? Very much so.

There's nothing "new" about this at all. Unless the woman was not mentally capable to
enter this marriage properly, what's the uproar about. We've had in society young women
marrying very wealthy old men, women from poor countries marrying men from wealthier countries to become legal citizens. Gay servicemen getting married so that they'll receive
a larger monthly paycheck. There's no shortage of sham marriages, and it's definitely not
something new. And don't forget societies where it is common to have arranged marriages.
Maybe a better question would be how many people get married because both the bride and
the groom are truly in love with each other. I think the divorce rates answer that question.

Well, in the guy's defense.. he sort of earned it, that lady married him with full knowledge that she would not last much longer, and just imagine if they actually -consumated- the marriage :S Seriously, that is not a pallatable task !

If he brought some joy to the woman in her last days, then what's the big fuss all about?? Who has the right to tell her who should receive her worldly belongings once she would be gone?

Certain things happen in our society that baffels the "normal" ones amongs us.You'd be surprised the number of things that take place in a 'civiliseed' society.

A few weecks back a couple where arrested after they found 3 of their children sleeping outside on a balcony while they enjoyed the comfort of sleeping inside.

Or what of the sick dad that locked his daughter and children up in Austria?

There are faaaar worse things in the world that make me question society.

The guy you mention seems to be opportunistic, thats all.

I have a question though for everyone. . .

What if it was the other way around as is commonly the case. What if the girl was in her 20's and married a man in his 80's? Would we thing differently?

I wouldnt be so sure. London is like a medieval war zone yobs rule the streets. Not to mention the pathetic government we have running the country. I mean, police have to fill out health and saftey forms and do a risk assessment before they can chase a criminal, by which point he is at home laughing. Get caught carrying a knife, oh thats ok too becasue you might get a fine and a community order, which means you sweep the streets for a few weeks.

You get taxed to eat and drink, you get taxed on your savings, you get taxed when you draw out your pension and you get taxed when you die.

Not so long ago an 11yr old got pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl, what did her mum say...'oh im delighted im so glad she was mature enough to keep it'. She then added that she thought her daughter was 'mature enough to look after a baby, she loves them to bits'. Bare in mind that the mum is now a grandma, and she is just 26!!!! Teenage pregnancies in the UK is one of the highest in Europe, if not the highest.

The UK is in a mess and i am now convinced it is run by vegetables who are all on 6 figures salaries why we crumble under financial pressure. Trust me, the UK Government is one of the most corrupt, but the public seem to pass it by.
Eagles may soar high, but weasels dont get sucked into jet engines!

It takes two to tango.... I am sure the 82 year old knew what was going on, and just wanted some good sex before she died... I could be wrong but if I am not, I don’t see anything wrong with it, think of it as a business transaction. It was a decision that they both made fully aware of the outcome (unless the 82 year old was not capable of making sound decisions which is entirely possible as well)
