Advice."Marry a wealthy and elderly man! So when you start to lose your good looks he will lose eyesight." - Thoughts?
just wait it out until he's pushing daisies, and hope you're in the will
The undead will suck daisies down into their grave I think?
good call, the last thing a lady needs is to put in those years just to get traded in for another 22 year-old 😛
Some guys seem to feel the urge to replace their "aging" blonde partner with the same model but 10 years younger. And marrying seems to be a must too. Why the hassle of marrying when your partner are always best before another couple of years?
I always thought that was the trade, he gets the trophy and she gets the alimony (or the estate) after marriage
Yeah, but that sorta guys have marriage contracts usually?
Yeah but they can pay lawyers to deal with that sort of thing, and in some states around here contracts around marriage are difficult to enforce - the community property laws in California get called out a lot
Pool accidents and party drugs solve this quite often it seems.
Marry a wealthy and blind person. You'll have the same results
Best would be to marry a bank account directly without the whole kaboodle!
But that's an object. Too much impersonal for me
You could then make them to adopt you as their child and heir?
adjusting my tinder sliders as we speak
Cannot you let them be sorted automatically by age?
I remember that as I kindergartener I used to tell my mom I wanted to marry a rich old man so that when he died and left me his money we could travel to Hawaii. I’m not sure why I was obsessed w going there.
That narrative seems to be a very old one and is the base of many a comedy and drama too.
I don't really understand that mentality. Since I don't care to be rich, just enough to live decently well.
Couldn't be 4 me. Can't relate to wealthy people generally, there are people my own age with terrible eyesight, and ya can't lose what you never had.
The "advice" is horrible and the mindset that created it in the first place is lunatic in my opinion.
Silly sounds a bit too ... soft?
I think it's silly because just getting old doesn't necessarily mean your eyesight would deteriorate, and if it did it wouldn't necessarily deteriorate in a way that you can't see the details of someone's face, and the deterioration could be compensated by glasses or something, and also even if he did start going blind you couldn't know that its timing would coincide with your getting older and uglier..
and when it is true what some say about growing wiser with age a divorce can happen anytime then.
We know actually he and her will spend a fortune on preserving and surgically restoring any losses due to age. But that is not interesting. Much more interesting is the mindset, don't you agree?
I don't know what your saying
