Kya is a spoiled prima donna with a taste for the finer things in life, and Aubrey is her handsome, doting husband who indulges her every whim…even if they can’t afford it. But when Aubrey loses his well-paying job, and has to flip burgers to pay the bills, Kya’s got to kiss her expensive fashions goodbye and look for a job of her own! Can a high-maintenance princess learn that real happiness doesn’t come with a price tag?
“For Richer or Poorer” is a solid movie which focuses on a contemporary couple that seems to be living the American dream, only to see it slip away due to the husband losing his job.
Rockmond Dunbar is terrific and convincing as Aubrey, financial expert and husband to Kya. Kya is used to living the way she wants to, buying expensive clothes and planning exotic vacations. However, Aubrey’s sudden loss of income places a terrible strain on the couple. Kya is soon deciding whether to move in with her parents or not and Aubrey feels as if his wife is flying the coop just when he needs her the most.
