So says Elizabeth Ford, co-author of Smart Girls Marry Money (Running Press), a controversial new book about why women should marry for money instead of just love.
According to Ford, women looking for a longterm relationship should put a mans economic status at the top of their list because, as she puts it, You dont want to marry a slacker.
She believes a mans bank account says much more about his character than his beautiful blue eyes, so women shouldnt get so smitten by love that they forget to factor in financial security.
Ford says the reality is that society isnt equal since career girls still make three times less money than their male counterparts so if the workplace wont provide gals with security, a man needs to.
She calls gold digging a form of survival and argues, If men can value beauty in a woman, then why cant women value money in a man?
Marry Money hits shelves today (May 4).
