I’m not sure what the purpose of this post is (?) but I will say that I scrounged and used hand-me-down mismatched items for years because I did not get married in my twenties.  I *needed* stuff too, but alas, people did not suddenly gift it to me just because I needed it.  I will also say – I’m always super puzzled by people talking about having nothing after a divorce.  Usually, you have approximately half of what you had before.  (Not always, but often.  Sometimes one party got screwed over, but much of the time it’s a tradeoff between the parties – someone gets the furniture and someone gets the couch.)  So…you have now is what I had for 15 years after college, when I paid for things myself.  The difference I guess, is that I didn’t feel entitled to more and I was prepared to suck it up and accept hand-me-downs, and once you get older and accustomed to better I think people are less willing to do that.
