Can women be open to the trophy husband idea?
We always hear stuff about trophy wives. Well, someone said that maybe its high time high-powered women borrowed a leaf or two from men with trophy wives, skip the soulmate cliché and find themselves trophy husbands.
According to findings of a recent Pew study, quite a big chunk of women earn more than their husbands. This elicited several articles (especially one from the New York Times) which claimed... men are benefiting more from this role reversal while portraying women as the victims.
Most successful women are having difficulty finding men – like-minded… like-moneyed men that is. Most men, who are equally successful, have no trouble settling for a wife who is gorgeous and nice, but not an intellectual. Looking at the likes of Donald Trump, men who have it all don’t need a brainy partner to validate them. Women on the other hand want it all … love, money, intellect… Maybe the dating pool for such high-powered women would widen if they were to look for and learn to love a Mr. Good Enough. But are they really open to the idea of a trophy spouse?

Apparently, more that they even think. A study carried out by Northwestern University in 2008 revealed that, much as women believe they choose their partners based on their earning power and ambition, in reality physical attractiveness took precedence over brains and money. Some A-list women (the Demi Moores, the Madonnas…) have actually embraced the idea… which is why we hear of ‘cougars’ talking about the thrills of recreational sex with their ‘cubs’. With a life so full of success, would you even have room for an intellectually challenging spouse?
This is the kind of woman who doesn’t need a man to constantly remind her that he wears pants… tight pants… and in the tight pants there are balls… big balls! This is the kind of woman who needs to have a man who will love her, support her, travel the world with her and bask in her success… Such a woman needs … say it with me… a trophy husband.
Do you believe women are hard-wired to settle for a trophy husbands?
