- Marcus has been married to Bella, a stripper, for almost 5 years
- They experience occasional problems, such as jealousy
- However, they trust each other and insist that they are happy
A couple in Texas, US, have been happily married for nearly five years despite the wife's profession as a stripper.
Briefly.co.za gathered that 31-year-old Marcus fully supports his wife, 27-year-old Bella, and her career. He has a conventional job as a lease operator.
Speaking to Huffington Post, Bella said she's been a stripper since the age of 19, although she took regular breaks in between.
The couple met in 2009 at one of the clubs Bella worked at. They became friends, started dating, and eventually got married. They'll mark five years of marriage in November.
Marcus admitted that he experiences jealousy sometimes:
There’s times when customers gift her things or say things that might push me to get jealous occasionally ― not to mention the fact she’s out having fun with other men.
However, Marcus said he considers Bella's work as just another profession. They have built trust between each other and get on with their personal lives like any other couple.
Bella, who makes about $300 a night, openly tells club patrons that she's married. She also wears her wedding ring at all times.
Marcus said most people are surprised when they learn he's married to a stripper.
However, this doesn't stop him from giving her his full support:
She makes money doing something she enjoys. The way I see it, if she’s happy, I’m happy for her. And she usually has change for $100.
