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!

I'm speechless! you dare to insult Jane Austen (gasp..). It's ok, coz you either love or hate her. Marriage is not on my list of priorities, but I have a few things to say in defense of females that aspire to it. First of all, I don't agree with the idea that women trick men into marriage. What more a rich, (usually) powerful man who makes major decisions everyday. Anybody who has to deal with a human life growing inside them, wreaking havoc in their system by subjecting them to strange food cravings (resulting in huge wt increases), wacky moods, a duck-like walk and scarred, stretched (or even ripped) muscles, deserves to have time off their regular duties and support from the person who took part in the procreation. Nothing greedy about that! And I think wealthy single women are either called eccentric cat ladies, prudes who can't handle a man, sluts, or lesbians, ama?

Well I am not saying that all women trick men into marriage.But women love to trick wealthy men into marriage and divorce them so they can plunder them for half of what they own.
As for having someone to share the load of pregnancy with, that is why I believe in having kids when you are in a marriage and nowhere else.Unless you decided to before hand via ai or sumthin else.
I have never heard of wealthy single women reffered to like that at all in the media.Maybe by a few people here and there but never the media.Single wealthy women are looked up to as gods!

Single wealthy women have been as far as I can remember been referred to as "malayas" and divorcees even when they have not been married to anyone before. Maybe not currently in the media because of the fear of libel and all, but under their breaths men say this. I've heard it once too many. In fact if you want to run for public office the first question they ask who is she married to? As if being married makes you leadership material. One young woman who ran for a seat in 2002 narrated her ordeal at the hands of the electorate and being rejected mostly because she was single and young. I forget her name at the moment.

Single women (wealthy or not)are very far from the godly status.

Prousette has raised a good point. When a woman is in the public eye, people want to know if she's married or not coz she loses status if she's single.
