This morning I had a ding-dong arguement with my friend. I teased him about getting a woman now that his marriage is over. He retorted that if he had money he would still be with his wife. I didn’t agree as I knew that his main problems were unrelated to money although he has been going through a financial drought .
“If I were rich I could still be with my wife and satisfy myself with concubines,” was his surprising generic vs brand response.
Well that set the ball rolling on the topic of whether or not women need men with money, except they are gold diggers.
He contends that even when women say that the man they are looking for do not have to have money or lots of it, in practice this is not how they behave. He gave several examples of professional girls we both know and their behaviour. Although we have heard them expressly state that money is not an issue for them, when it came down to chosing a man they each ridicule men who were not even able to take them out to dinner, or have a home for themselves.
As a woman what do you think, honestly? If you are a man what has been your experience in this area?
