Hey Mas I hear you can live like a King in Costa Rica for about $1500 a month...maid, cook, gardner, pool man...it's closer so the flight home to visit is shorter & cheaper! lol
First question...why would someone be asking you to do give up everything?
I did in 1983. Five years later, he waited till I went to work, pulled a truck up to our rented house, emptied it and left the city. With the baby and all our savings. We didn't have that much to begin with. I was homeless, penniless, and childless in one afternoon for marrying purely for love.
