Do All Women Marry For Money?

Post by jamesbond » November 11th, 2019, 5:22 am

Yes, all women do marry for money, no matter what the feminists and white knights say to the contrary.

Middle class women and wealthy women marry for money.

Poor women marry for love and sex. That's why I married one.

Doesn't that just mean they have less options and will settle for less money?

If they do, some of them are really bad at math. If all women married for money, none of them would marry poor men. :D

It means their "normal". Why their normal doesn't really matter.

I had never been around normal women before I moved to the Philippines. Some men will have no idea what I'm talking about but American women and Filipinas are complete opposites.

^ I have the opposite point of view. Filipinas are far from normal. Just my opinion but I'd say women elsewhere in Asia are more like women in America than they are like women in the Philippines.

I think it's more complicated than that. I think women in general marry for "stability", which is a definition that changes very widely. It usually involves financial stability, so money, but just as well the promise that they (and their offspring) will be taken care of, protected and supported throughout life.

To think that women only marry with money is just as cynical and reductive as thinking that women only marry good looking hunks or, as I read here on a few posts, street gang types.

Then there's also the romantic notion of marriage, instilled by one too many Hollywood flicks. They want to live the dream, be the beautiful brides in white, with 50 or 100 people pouring attention all over them. They want their moment. I think that has some significance too, else you would find far more unmarried couples, who by the way can live pretty much the same way.

Women marry for many reasons, one of which can be for money. But they tend to marry for money if they are:

-Very poor or economically deprived
-Single mothers
-Older women who have hit the wall
-Younger women who are sagacious and intelligent
-Old fashioned Gold diggers

But the key here is ALL women have the ability to exploit men for money once they become married to the man so it is a smart strategy to think this way for any man. Virtuous women often become bored, resentful, shrews who will take all she can from a husband when she wants to cash out and explore the sexual market again.

True. Once the sexual tension is gone and routine sets in, if both parties don't make a serious effort to keep the fire alive, boredom and tireness will tear the couple apart in no time. That's why I don't think it's ever a good idea to give the woman all she wants. Once she think she's got it all, she will start asking for things that are much harder to get from a man...like impossible gifts or life choices, or another man's sexual favours.
