The Couple that fought over seven (7) American Dollars


Once upon a time there was a couple, Marie and Pierre, who had been together for many years. One day, when they were traveling abroad, they argued over a sum of money as small as 7 US dollars. The argument began while they were walking down a small shopping street. Marie had decided to buy a pretty bracelet as a souvenir of their trip, while Pierre thought it was an unnecessary expense.

“Why should we spend money on a simple bracelet?” asked Pierre, his eyebrows furrowed.

“Because it’s a special memory for me, something that will always remind me of this trip,” Marie replied, a little offended.

The discussion quickly turned into a heated argument. They reproached each other and raised their voices, attracting the attention of passers-by. Finally, Marie, with tears in her eyes, threw the bracelet to the ground and ran away.

Pierre suddenly felt overcome by sadness and remorse. He picked up the bracelet and ran after Marie. He found her sitting on a bench, her eyes red with tears. Pierre sat down beside him and, in a soft voice, apologized.

"I'm sorry, darling. It's not the money that matters, but our happiness together. I didn't mean to hurt you."

Marie wiped her tears and looked at Pierre. She knew he was right. They hugged each other and promised not to let simple arguments ruin their love again.

And so, this couple learned that sometimes, it's not the amount of money involved that matters, but how we understand and support each other in difficult times.
