From one of my fave blogs...

Bullshit saying of the day!
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."

- rubbish author Jane Austen (1775 – 1817)

Hardly surprising a woman wrote that is it? One who never married and supposedly died a virgin too.

The sad thing is that, although the above was written (in her novel Pride & Prejudice) back in 1797, when women generally were reliant on men for an income, most liberated independent womyn in the 21st Century wander around still believing that. Even career girls seem to think that way, that a rich man needs a wife, and that there is something wrong with such a man if he shuns marriage like a barefoot man shuns dog-shit.

Whether back in the 18th Century or today, women generally don't like to accept their own greed and materialistic shallowness, and go to great lengths to disguise these attributes in veils of self-deception, such as by laughably claiming that it is rich men who need wives, rather than greedy women who want rich men.Or as one KBW girl put it, wealth shows that he is responsible and would make a good partner.

In the 21st Century it is a truth universally acknowledged that a man in posession of a good fortune is single.
A man with a good fortune needs a wife the same way a fish needs a bicycle.All the benefits of marriage can be obtained without it.Wealthy men should marry at their own risk!When wealthy men are single they are called playboys and irresponsible and when wealthy women are single they are called focussed and an example.Screw those double standards!
