Not much luck in love for fifty years old Ella Kupper she has wasted her time on three useless men
In the love stakes she's never been a winner but in love it's not easy for to win
To each she's had a child she has raised two sons and a daughter the eldest thirty and the youngest twenty four
But she is planning one more try at marriage though she has tried and failed three times before.
She feels this time that she has found her soul mate success is there for those who try
She wept a little when her third marriage ended but she never wished for to lay down and die
She could have said enough of men forever but she will not go down without a fight
I've yet to hear it said of fourth time lucky though three Mr wrongs could lead to Mr right.
The men she married to her were unfaithful she could have said that all men are the same
But she is not one who is into generalizing and for her bad experiences all men she does not blame
She is one of those who can put the past behind her and for any of her ex husbands she does not hold a grudge
She says that she will leave them to their karma and she is not the one for to be their judge.
Not much luck in love so far for Ella Kupper but good things come to all of those who wait
And her marriage number four may work out for her for it would seem she has found her soul mate
She does not blame all men for her bad experiences and the gift of happiness she still pursue
And she is an incurable romantic and she claims she has found a love's that's true.
