Men openly admit to marrying a woman for her beauty and for the great sex. So why are women frowned upon for marrying a man for financial security? If money issues is the number one cause of divorce, then why not have money at the top of your list of importance when choosing a partner?
There is a new book
called "Smart Girls Marry Money: How Women Have Been Duped into the Romantic Dream -- and How They're Paying for It" by Daniela Drake & Elizabeth Ford.
The book discusses how it’s better to marry a man with good finances rather than to marry just for love. Knowing that that loving feeling doesn't last and that women have a "sell-by date," women should pursue the "gold digging imperative" -- finding a man while they still have their youth and looks.
Both authors say they "married for love, but reaped the consequences." They say that romantic love is never a valid reason to get married.
What do you think? Is getting married for money better than getting married for love? Why or why not?
Why are gold-diggers looked upon poorly, but no one says anything about a man who marries a woman for looks?
