Love knows no boundaries.
But the thrill of the high life can be the biggest downfall for many woman.
Mary Mubaiwa had it all going in her life. The daughter of respected Zimbabwean business man and former Dynamos Football club chairman, Mubaiwa was at one stage married to Zimbabwe international Shinji Kawondera.
Footballers are well known to have a lower career and when Shingi's career started dwindling, Mubaiwa hit the headlines when she fell for Zimbabwe vice president Constantine Chiwenga.
For her it was lover at first sight judging by her Twitter timeline.
"I didn't marry the material wealth, I married the wealth that was in his heart, the gentle touch of his hand, the knowledge of God,his understanding of what my heart wanted, he understood the person that i was, the me that I am today, focused, forgiving and forward thinking," she tweeted.
Mubaiwa has been the subject of suffering in recent months. she is being denied the opportunity to seek medical attention in South Africa.
Had she chosen to remain with Shingi, she could have had a dignified health care system at her disposal.
But that's life and her story is a painful one that many ladies can learn from.
