    Re: "Hey, wait a minute! The wealthy men don't want to get married."

    I would like to see DeSantis in Florida make prenuptial agreements in marriage a legal requirement for marriage in Florida. He'd do it too. They have the legislature that would back him if he did.
    At one time, in a galaxy far, far away, I gave this considerable thought. Would an iron-clad pre-nup actually make a difference?

    It might. To a few.

    You'd still be stuck choosing among the same overly-banged used goods, but the downside finally limited by statute and contract? So you can plan ahead for it? Someone would sign up for that. The only wild card would be child support. The fix for that was simple. Child support based on percentage of income only. No imputed minimum income shit.

    20% of gross from each parent is placed in trust monthly. All expenses, from either parent, other than mandatory living, (clothes, shoes, etc.) must be mutually agreed to, or reimbursement doesn't happen. Expense documentation, to the penny, mandatory. Once child reaches 18, trust will pay for in-state trade school/college tuition only. Trust dissolves upon child's 30th birthday. Remaining balance, if any, released to child as lump sum.

    Actually, that would work for those wanting kids, without the downside of a spouse, too.

    Just one more thing to add to the will-never-see-happen-in-my-lifetime list.

    Offhand, think it would be easier for you to move to an Eastern European country like Ukraine. Believe the average child support award is $67 per month and the average monthly wage is $300 per month. No alimony in Ukraine unless exceptional circumstances. Downside - right now there are Ukrainian army press gangs roaming around looking for men to be sent as cannon fodder to the trenches. Best to avoid Ukraine til the war is over unless you like excitement. Also, in my experience Ukies are the best at credit card fraud - expect your credit card info to be skimmed and sold by the local Ukie mafia. Always turn off your credit card after you pay for a hotel room or whatever in Ukraine if your card has that capacity then turn it on temporarily when you need to use it, then cancel the card after leaving Ukraine and get a fresh one.

    Re: "Hey, wait a minute! The wealthy men don't want to get married."

    American/western women can be enormously motivated and predatory once they identify a wealthy target. But they are not really all that good at the identification part. They look for the flash car, flash watch, flash clothes etc. It's not that difficult to have money and not display it so that the gold digger money radar just passes right by you.

    I call this: 'stealth-wealthy", and it isn't very difficult to do. Women, especially the hard core gold-digging kind, are not just looking for wealthy targets. They are looking for easy targets. That means easy to rob, but also easy to identify. Think his school dropout professional athlete on multimillion dollar contract wearing bling all over his team jersey at a strip bar...

    He may as well have a sign around his neck saying "ROB ME!"

    Work, earn, save, invest... but speak, act, dress and spend as though you haven't done ANY of those first 4.

So men simply need to return to "being men," which means providing for women no matter what.

    An escort is a woman you occasionally financially support only when she has sex with you.

    A date is a woman you occasionally financially support in the hope she will have sex with you.

    A wife is a woman you constantly financially support even when she is not having sex with you.

    An ex-wife is a woman you constantly financially support with alimony so she can have sex......with someone else.

    That's exactly it. It's why feminism is the most hypocritical movement out there. They cherry pick which equal rights they want. They want 2021 for education, jobs, etc. But for dating and marriage, they want 1950, except for the part where they cook and clean. They want a man to fulfill his gender role of providing everything, but they don't want to do the woman's gender role.

    If everything were totally gender equal, they would provide just as much as men. On every date, the check would be split 50/50. They also would not select men based on status or income.

    But they don't fucking do that! It's not even close. They're hypocrites.
