In my case, I need to marry becuz

Firstly, I am old,
Secondly, I need to determine 'my level of living,'
Fortune tellers told me I'd become rich - I haven't seen that happening
Obviously, Thirdly, I did plan the future of 'being reborn' with 'several men' - making sure they'd be rich,
Now none of them wanna marry me, then I need to find someone around me
My income is limited, then to become affluent, I would have to significantly cut my spending
Of course I save a lot, but there is a level of difference,
It's best if you make the decision now.
Fourthly, Andre told me, he can see future, the pen is in nobody's hand, let us plan
And he said, I would marry a rich man,
now those things that I heard 'here and there' - confuses me
'yeah, fortune telling works' - always, why not?
But I feel like 'waiting not knowing until when is kinda torturous, tormenting.'
it's not like I am fukcing as I am waiting.
