Most people want to marry rich whether they agree to it or not. I'm not saying they only consider income. But between two really awesome people, one who is Rich and the other not so, most people would choose the rich one. And yet, when women dare to even say that they hope to marry a guy who is rich (along with other qualities), they are labeled as gold diggers EVEN when she herself is rich. Why?
I said apart from all other qualities you would want. Wanting someone who is intelligent or athletic or nature loving or anything else raises no one's hackles but wanting your dream man to ALSO be rich gets you labelled as shallow. Why?
This is even stranger in cases where the woman is just as rich and perfectly willing to and capable of making her own money.
Most Helpful Guy
Uhh... did you even have a point, or are you just making one up on the fly? Nothing in your rant was at all coherent.
Do you honestly believe that, given the choice between a rich average woman and an average income hot woman, that a guy would choose the rich woman? Hypergamy is a trait of women (most), not of men (most). A woman who marries a man to take his wealth is a gold digger; A woman who turns men down for their lack of her ideal wealth is a gold digger. The only people who complain about a woman like that should be the ones having to deal with her, not of people who should understand that she is most likely a 2 dimensional kept woman that serves as nothing but eye candy and a hole to fill. It's shallow because, in the event the money is gone, the woman is gone too.
I don't understand why people are offended by gold diggers, personally. I feel like the only time I'd actually feel a genuine hatred for one is if I was rejected, came into money, and then became the apple of her eye.2
