Are women just looking for rich men? watch


    I love my man and I want to have babies with him, but the thing is, he's just not wealthy enough... So yeah, I think I'll find another one :rolleyes: coz money is SO important

    (Original post by the realist)
    No actually they can, but does every engineer marry another engineer? does every business man marry another business woman?? yes they CAN, but look at the real world and please note whos making by far the most cashmoney in these jobs? yep it's men. Theoretical equality is all very good but in the real world things are different, just like theoretically equality means women should be earning more than their partners and supporting them in an even ratio.....but that doesn't happen!!

    NO, in fact hypergamy dictates that a successful man will usually have access to the women below him in status, as oppose to those equal to him proffessionally and financially. Thus they often end up with a little twerp who doesn't really appreciate his career or achievements, just likes spending his money.
    I'm not talking about theoretical equality, I'm just saying as a female medic I'd rather marry a professional. I have my own career and will have my own earnings. I know of very few women who actually just marry a man with the intention of spending his money on shopping. Don't think so badly of women.

    Most women do earn less than men. Women are usually expected to take care of the children so marrying a man with a job is not marrying him for his money, but to support a family.
