No, I don`t think so.
No, I don`t think so.
Maybe. If I really liked the guy as a person, and could trust him to follow ground rules with things on the side, then definite maybe.
I wouldn’t at this point in my life, though. Now that I have my own career, I am my own sugar. Don’t need it from any man.
I have always thought, though, that I could be a good trophy wife for an ambitious spouse, if I were only a bit more of a trophy. Like I would be a good politician’s wife. Those ladies are usually really sharp and savy.
At least the hypothetical rich wealthy man is HOT lol. =]
Ha, ejs, of course he had to be good looking to make the scenario more appealing.. I could never do what Anna Nicole did! But if it were someone that I found to be attractive.. that puts me in the maybe category i mentioned above.
I also agree, that all of this would had to have happened before we had ever met our sweeties – in fact it probably would have happened in a world where you may have never met (that’s the fun of hypotheticals!)
Snakeysnake: Hello date twin! I’m an ex-athlete & I was always attracted to athletes, dated them thru school, but when I graduated, there were no more “athletes” just walking around.. so I had a lot of crushes on professional baseball players, even met a few. But seeing the life that some of their wives led, made me go the other direction. The guys are out of town for almost 9 months a year (esp. if they play for a team in a different city then where you live), and a lot of them are doing bad-boy things while they are away… I couldn’t live like that, but some of their wives are okay with it. They have the house, the cars, the kids, the cash, and they are okay with that… I couldn’t do it.
So between the stuff going on in the media right now, and my past thoughts, I thought I’d put it out there.. its really interesting to see everyone’s perspective
Yes I could. Life would be easy and I could have anything I wanted. I probably wouldn’t fool around while the kids were under 18, but to have to opportunity to have them set for life without worrying about money would be a big advantage to me.
Love is nice, but marriage is about choosing to be with someone and sticking with them no matter what. As long as you know upfront what you are getting into, who am I to knock people who get married just or money?
Not in my life here and now. If I was living in a poor country with no family, resources, or ability to get a job? Probably.
I would rather be independent and self-made with the possibility of a great romance and life on my own terms. I couldn’t imagine staying in a relationship where we were not 100% committed/in love. Of course there will be hard times when we don’t get along, but I think that foundation of love is what makes the hard times worth it.
