Man Who Want Wife Stay When Bad Avoid Women Have Options

Okay, that's a cavemanish characterization of the Forbes story, Don't Marry Career Women written by Michael Noer, which was removed from the Forbes web site before I attempted to read the whole thing. From what I did see, my title is a better fit for this article.

Note: the article is up again minus the slide show and with a rebutting article.

If the target of the article is a man who wants to pick out a wife the way he picks out a car and who takes better care of his cars than he will his future wife, then the advice is spot on.

If you want a broodmare and a not-so-glorified servant as your wife then by no means should you attempt to marry some woman who knows she deserves to be treated as a partner in marriage and who has the financial means to get herself and her children free of you if you neglect or abuse her.

Just tell your future wife exactly why you're picking her.

No bait and switch please. Wives deserve to know what they will and will not be getting from you. If you have enough money, don't worry, you'll eventually find some woman willing to marry you on honest terms.

Since I only read the quotes of this article, I'll send you to other commentaries on the full Forbes article.
