Is the trophy wife a thing of the past?
Researchers have found that men today want more than a woman whose talents include looking beautiful and nothing more. A German study that surveyed 2,000 men over three years found that 76 percent of them would not accept a partner who didn’t have a job, and 45 percent said they want a woman who earned lots of money herself.
Relationship expert Teri L. Orbuch told HuffPost Live’s Ricky Camilleri that the change in the ideal vision of a wife shows that men want a true partner who can help guide the couple’s future.
“Men these days of all ages are wanting less stress, and less stress means having a partner or spouse who can bring in resources, whether that be income or people — anything to help take the burden off men,” she said. “What that translates to in the relationship is not making all the decisions in the relationship.”
