The average guy believes most gals are only looking for money, but the truth is too few of us are interested in their income at all. The modern gal is earning her own cash and is looking for emotional security.
What’s worse, statistics show women suffer far more economically than men when marriages fail. With this in mind, we have some advice: Instead of looking for love, let’s look out for our own security, the kind you can count in dollars and cents.
Now we’re not saying that money equals happiness. Everyone knows even the very wealthy can be downright, even bitterly, miserable. This is not about “happily ever after.” It’s about being smart and avoiding economic disaster by clinging to old paradigms about love and marriage.
Marrying for money isn’t new. In fact, throughout history spousal arrangements have rarely taken any other form. In the past, marriage was primarily a system to promote the financial, social and political aspirations of the families involved. But these days society is pretty much disgusted at the thought of a mercenary marriage.
A happy, fulfilling, and successful marriage is supposed to be lifetime where the couple grow together in loving, understanding and caring for each other. Likewise, ideally, they learn from each other and reciprocate each others needs and simultaneously progress in their pursuit to achieve their mutual dreams.
Which do you prefer, to marry an already very rich prospect without love or to marry the love of your life where you both can build your future together.
