Lost Necklace Reward
Her husband worked really hard to get her tickets to the Ministry. But all she did was complain she had nothing to wear.
Her husband gave her money for a dress. Yet that still wasn't enough so she borrowed jewelry from her friend.
She's at the party. This is also when she realizes she has lost the necklace. Her husband is searching all night for it and going to the police and saying they'd give rewards.
She replaces her friends necklace, which takes her ten years to pay off.
Later she saw her friend on the street with a child and still looking young. While she had aged and looked much older. She found out that day that the necklace she had lost wasn't made of real diamonds.
