When I first came to Honolulu, 50 years ago,I was told and did meet several what they called "remittance" people. They were from wealthy families but hadn't lived up to the family honor and so were subsidized to live in Hawaii. Later, as a church secretary, I was to meet women who came with men to get married here. The men deseerted them right off and they were left to roam the streets. Most were bipolar and were not welcome back home. Their relatives figured they wouldn't freeze to death and they'd never have the money to get back.
