The article on Market Watch does a pretty good job of explaining why.Here’s the paragraph that hit home for me: “Why are wealthy divorced women more likely to decide to remain single?
The Overly Feminist This type of woman assumes and believes man is the cause of all the pains and suffering of a society. To her, the man's responsible for paying for dinners, drinks, trips, jewelry, flowers etc.
She needs to know she is loved—rich or poor—flaws and all.” As a dating coach for smart, strong, successful women, I’ve seen this up close, and think that this is a genuine obstacle for women to overcome.
I’ve written a lot about gender, money, and equality, and believe that the entire point of having money is that it gives you the freedom to marry for love rather than security. Male millionaires (smartly) don’t seek out female millionaires because, to them, it doesn’t matter what she makes.
I am going to go out on a limb and state that many, if not most men date for intimacy.
Most men, especially when they reach a certain stage in their life, are looking for that "special someone" to get romantically involved with, who will hopefully be that potential mate for life.
