SHOCKING NEWS FROM SCIENCE: Millionaire men happy to date non-millionaire women; millionaire women mostly interested in millionaire men. “It seems that financially independent men want to share their wealth with those less fortunate. With women, the story is much different.”
Hogamus hergamus, women hypergamous.
So millionaire men are paragons whose romantic preferences have nothing to do with money while millionaire women will ignore character and virtue to focus on finances, right? Not exactly. Here’s what the linked story actually says - in the title no less (emphasis mine):
Millionaire Men Prefer To Date Women With Less Money
Millionaire men don’t ignore a woman’s financial status any more than millionaire women do. Rather, millionaire men have an active preference for women with less money. And while rich men’s desire for “a partner they can take care of” can certainly be dressed up as “shar[ing] their wealth with those less fortunate,” it looks a lot like hypogamy to me.
