    Onassis heiress to wed in Brazil

    It'll all end in tears!

    One of the world's wealthiest women is getting married in Brazil in what's being called the wedding of the decade.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/4494300.stm

    Does anyone honestly see a happy ending to this marriage? he's too old for her and she's too young to get married anyway, IMO.

    apparently her father was once called the top gigalo, but i think this gal's future husband can now claim the title for himself.

    I didn't realize she was 20 already!! She looks so much like her mother. I just hope she can find some happiness in this marriage. Her mother was never lucky at love. I wish her all the best.

    Also notice that the advisors on the charitable board think she is too young to adminster the funds as well as haven't attended university. Seems like lots of dudes in line for picking at the family fortune.Not just the husband......long line of greedy, manipulative people. Tough road for anyone much less a 20 year old.

    The article has her name wrong. Her name is Athina Onassis Roussel, not the other way around. Her last name is Roussel.

    And I don't blame the foundation for not wanting her to be president. She IS too young, and she didn't go to college, and they're probably are a little wary of her after her father, Roussel slammed the foundation the way he did.

    She seems a little like she's wasting her youth.

    Blessings for a long and happy marriage. And maybe when she's older she can manage her grandfather's foundation.

    Actually, you are correct. She is too young but I still say there is manipulation going on. With this kind of money some of it always goes to large administrative costs. Think United Way.

    No kidding. United Way wastes way too much money.

    I don't think 12 years apart is too much. My husband and I are farther apart than that.

    See, I didn't notice a big problem with age as much as her financial condition vs. his. I just see a lot of problems when one has always been privileged against someone who is not.

    Bless her and yes, good wishes.

    in my opinion she hasn't stood much chance with all that money behind her.

    too many picking at her fortune.

    pretty much everyone.

    imagine!

    i so hope she doesn't go the way her mother did.

    looking at Christina's life, it's clear money isn't really happiness. not that kind of money, anyway.

    i don't believe those who have control of her charitable billion are not in it for themselves.

    as to her name: i would wonder if she didn't choose to have Onassis as her surname anyway. seriously wondering about 'their' objections about her not going to collage or not speaking Greek (apparently she rebelled against 'Greekischness'); it's to do with the money, IMO. always the money.

    really.

    poor

    little

    rich

    girl.

    it will be a movie in our lifetime, sadly.

    because something is laying in wait.

    To me, the difference is between 20 and 32.

    later (like if she were 26), then the age difference wouldn't matter so much, i don't think.

    there is a 9 year age difference between me and my partner. but we were older.

    yes, i'm being subjective.

    I just keep thinking about her. The world is her oyster. In her lifetime, if she tries hard and pays attention, she could completely change the world. The joy of having this much money, more than she could ever spend, is not what it buys but what changes you can make in the human condition.

    She could pick a lifelong project, like elderly care, or creating opportunities for poor bright children, or work on a specific disease. And when she dies of old age, she could have made such a profound difference in the world it would be astounding.

    Instead, it looks like she's opted out of college and now she's marrying young and I hope she's not throwing away her potential.

    While I'm very sure that Athina is worldly and more experienced than the average 20 year old, I feel that 32 is too old for her. I have seen many pictures of the couple, and her new husband "Doda", as he is called, is
    NEVER ever smiling. He always looks very aggressive and almost creepy.

    I wish her well, and hope that he's not just after her money.

    He has an adorable 6 year old daughter who will live with them....
    talk about an instand family for a 20 year old!!
