On Being Married to an Extremely Rich & Powerful Man

I think it must be so amazing to be married to a powerful man. But what do I know? I am only twenty two. Still, I think it must be so exciting to be the wife of a man of exceptional power, like, for example, Donald Trump. First of all, powerful men tend to be rich men. And of course I know that money is the root of all evil but it sure does look like it can be a lot of fun too. And it means you can go shopping for designer handbags and shoes and take exciting holidays and eat at fancy restaurants without having to think about how you will pay for the bills.

Imagine if you have so much money that you don’t have to worry about how much you spend on sexy lingerie, make up and name brand sneakers. And don’t even mention the world travel in private gulf stream jets and the illustrious real estate all over the world.
It’s not just the money though. I don’t want to sound shallow and superficial because obviously I realize that money is just evil and stupid and that I should never aspire to be rich. It is much better to be middle class or even poor because people like you more.
But when you are married to a rich and powerful man, I mean, I can’t imagine what it would be like to be married to a rich and powerful man. And I don’t just mean the president. There are powerful and rich men in all sectors including in Entertainment, Sports, Banking, Journalism and Technology.

The thing is, even with all the perks, you always hear of women who are miserable as hell being married to rich and powerful men. Some of them are absolute basket cases! It is just inconceivable how a woman could live in the lap of luxury  and have this ultra rich and powerful husband and still be miserable.

But have you noticed that these women rarely rush to get divorced from their rich and powerful husbands? We were talking about that and apparently, according to our editor at Divorce Saloon, rich people tend to have a lower divorce rate than poor people. I find the willingness of women to stay in less than happy marriages to rich and powerful men infinitely fascinating.

Why do they stay? It is not about the money because most of them have very generous prenups that say that if they divorce, they get tens of millions of dollars and so they can buy any number of designer handbags their hearts desire. So if they divorce, these women will automatically be rich. Why then would a woman remain married to a rich, powerful man if she is not happy in the marriage?
