Why Mom Wants Me to Marry a Millionaire
Most parents always want to play the role of guardian angel in their children’s life, especially the mothers, they always want a secure future for their children. That is the reason why most mothers always want their children to marry a millionaire in order to be financially secure in the future.
Let’s look at the practical benefits of marrying someone richer than yourself or just really, filthy rich. Let’s say you not only want your daily bread and butter, but also your marmalade. And a nice steak once in a while wouldn’t hurt much. Throw in some caviar and wine and life is just great. Marrying a rich man brings major changes in your lifestyle. And most of the changes are good ones… In fact, they are spectacular.
If you are the kind of girl who likes to be pampered with jewelry and great gifts, then a rich husband is your means to that end. A great car at your disposal, even better are multiple cars that are chauffeur driven. Hired help and a luxurious house, make that two – your city home an a holiday villa.
You can finally hire your very own personal trainer and look like a million bucks (apart from having a million bucks in your bejeweled designer handbag). And did I mention the designer clothes? Valentino, Lagerfeld, Versace, etc. you could buy them all, and custom-made handbags and shoes too.
Apart from these materialistic, but great motives, there is another side effect of marrying a rich man. You will never be under the pressure of being the main breadwinner. Now this could have been an issue and you would be viewed as regressive and anti-feminists if your partner was an average Joe but if he is a millionaire, no one cares. Look at Victoria Beckham... no… but wait… she has a career in music or fashion or something… right?
A great extension of the above-mentioned aspect is that you could pursue your true calling. So if you marry your rich man, you could give up that bank job you hated and pursue scuba diving like you always wanted. You could take up pottery, or art. You could write, review or critique. Become a salsa teacher. Who knows? You could end up making more money and fame than you used to in your regular job and what’s more, you’d love your job too.
Marrying a rich man is perfect if you are an old-fashioned homemaker at heart. If you like keeping a great home and baking cookies and tarts, it would help if your man was out there making those millions. You could finally become the charitable, altruistic, philanthropic person you only dreamt of becoming. Donate, help the poor or throw benefits and fund raisers. You can do your bit for the world.
Finally, if your rich man isn’t already famous and he is an all-work-and-no-party kind of guy, then you could teach him a few media tricks. Throw great parties and get him in the news with some excellent PR work. Do your part for his visibility and fame quotient and maybe you’ll soon be the Vice President of his new shipping company.
