really good one
as for me I have another theory but before exposing it I'll give my point of view here
first of all, if this woman is the true Margo, then I don't like what I see, sure I though she was a kind of Gothel, but not reaching this level, the relationship mother/friend is not totally healthy, and I think Venus's mom had "responsibilities" earlier in life, maybe she was not ready back then to assume them, maybe she wanted to enjoy her youth, but she had Venus, but it's not an excuse, she have a daughter now, and she had her for 19 years, so she needs to grow up for her sake, and show her the good exemple, even now, which is not the case obviously, I know what you're gonna say, people are in different states regarding maturity, and generally, some people had different view of things, and matures later than others, but Margo's case is too extreme, she seems to be the kind who thinks she's her daughter's friend and rival maybe, I have nothing against older women with a young mind and wanting to stay young in their heads, but come on, when you have children, you should educate them, accept them, and give them what they need, not exposing them to the world, and taking their money (if it's the case), and rejecting her online potential friends for no reason, so a big thumb down for Margo (judging by what we've seen)
as for Venus, I have mixed feelings, I don't agree with you guys all the time, but I don't disagree either, you had good points, and some are questionable, Venus doesn't seem to be a bad person, but she is not an angel either, and far from being one, she's still very young, but her mother filled her with some dreams to achieve, like living in Japan, and other stuff like that, so it's not impossible to think about her wanting to run off with Manaki only to be able to stay in Japan, because it's really quick, and she was a little bit hesitant regarding her marriage with Manaki, so maybe she really loves him, but running from Margo only to go with a perfect stranger, yes love is not enough, you should build up this love before getting engaged generally, but in some cases it can work, but it's not a general case, most of the time, those relationships needs to be worked to work, it seems to be extreme to me, but yet again I may be wrong, maybe she's happy, but we can't say something like that now, since it's only their first year together, the first year is always happy in a marriage, well most of the time
don't get me wrong, I respect her decision even though I disagree with this kind of things simply because I think a girl should be as educated as a guy, and find herself before getting to this point to seriously be happy, and independant, because some girls tend to search somebody who can pay for them all the time, and sometimes this kind of relationship is toxic, of course it's only my idea of life, people are different and I don't have any rights to say what she should do or not, she's gonna learn by herself, but seriously, I hope she'll try to build a career or something like that, because nowadays, this is the only thing that can help us
so here is my theory:
Venus and her mother wanted to live in Japan so badly, and I am sure she wanted to marry a japanese guy, since I knew a lot of people who thinks Japan is a Kawaii land full of mangas and Kawaiiness, and most of those girls wanted to marry a Japanese only, so they met Manaki who was a "fan" of her, and she took this opportunity to know him,'mainly because he's japanese', so Margo was not against the idea because she wanted the same thing for her daughter, so things evoluated, and then they decided to marry, at first, Margo was happy because she though it was her free Visa for Japan, but after a while, she discovered the truth, Manaki only wanted to be with Venus, not her mother, and Margo is not able to get a permanent visa anyways, so she changed her mind, and wanted venus to reconsider their wedding, Venus did, because the visa takes more time to be delivered, and then without divorcing, she told in her social media, just in case, "I changed my mind", and then she had depression, and lately, her visa was approved, so she decided to move to japan, and Margo was not too hapy about that, because she was pushed to the side, so she blamed Manaki for everything, and she posted some inappropriate stuff about her daugher, because she's not acting as an adult, and putting all their personal stuff on social network, she only proved, we were right, as for Venus, I don't think what she will do for now, is she gonna work? is she gonna study? or simply stay at home ? I just really hope it's not a mistake for her and for Manaki, it's none of our business after all
or they are just trolling for attention as usual...
what do you think guys ?
Edit: I don't think Venus is bad, I hope we will see her true colors, and I hope she'll grow up in a healthy relationship since she was angaged so early in life
as for Margo, I can understand why she wanted her daughter to stay, but seriously, it was not an excuse to expose her on the net, if she was a rational adult, she should talk to her calmly, and explain her the true reason why she doesn't want her to go with him, maybe Venus would have listened to her, but she acted like a mad woman here, so, nobody can take her seriously
