I don’t object to women being golddiggers.

July 29, 2008

I just wish they were more honest about it. Time was, women didn’t pretend they wanted to earn their own money and didn’t want to marry a wealthy man.

It’s proper for men to be the breadwinners and women to depend upon them, but society is no longer structured to compensate men for their hard work.

Family secrets: I wish I had married for money, not love

I feel resentful, especially as it’s the men who bring in the money; and even if Bill were a head teacher, he wouldn’t come close. When out with the girls I hear Susan moan about John’s business trips and I have to pinch myself to keep from shouting that his £250,000 salary must make up for some of his absences. Or Trisha: she inherited a house from her parents, which means that though her husband is on a normal salary, she needn’t work, and spends her time at the gym. Bill tells our girls that they can achieve anything and I agree, but when they start dating, I’ll try to guide them (behind his back) towards men who can give them the sort of life I’ve never had. Feminism’s fine, but there’s a lot to be said for having your bills paid.
