A girl asked how to marry a rich man in New York City. She got two very interesting replies.
👸 Feel free to write down the lesson learned from either of the two stories.
This Pretty Girl Was Seeking A Rich Husband. The Reply She Got From A Banker Was Priceless.
The following is what a women posted on a dating forum seeking a rich husband:
I’m going to be honest of what I’m going to say here. I’m 25 this year. I’m very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above. You might say that I’m greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York. My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married? I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you? Among those I’ve dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit.
If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden(?), $250k annual income is not enough.
I’m here humbly to ask a few questions:
1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2) Which age group should I target?
3) Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking? I’ve met a few girls who don’t have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys.
4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)
A philosophical reply from CEO of J.P. Morgan below:
Dear Ms. Pretty, I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor.
My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I’m not wasting time here. From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.
Put the details aside, what you’re trying to do is an exchange of “beauty” and “money” : Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square. However, there’s a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can’t be prettier year after year.
Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It’s not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years later. By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a “trading position”.
If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term – same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or “leased”. Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advise that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income.This has better chance than finding a rich fool. Hope this reply helps. signed,
J.P. Morgan CEO

Casandra Clements, well-married Answered April 7, 2016 I'll tell you how I snagged (and eventually married) a rich man beginning at the tender age of 18. This story is 100% true and probably the most reliable method for attracting wealthy, successful men.
First, I finished high school in the top 10% of my class. I immersed myself in the study of literature, history, and science and became a well-rounded conversationalist.
Second, I applied to and attended the best undergraduate university I could afford. I continued my studies and extra curricular activities to become ever more informed and self-motivated. I met many men in my years there, but I attached myself to the most intelligent, interesting, and driven man. And we fell in love.
Third, I supported him while he attended graduate school full time. Oh yeah, and I attended grad school part time simultaneously. If you want smart and successful men to lust after you, you've got to give them something to desire. I have a great body and huge tits, but among 25 year olds, those qualities are rather abundant. I have my own career and my own interesting shit going on.
Fourth, I encouraged, supported, and loved him through the ups and downs at the beginning of his career. At this point in our lives, his realized and potential income are well in excess of my own earning capacity. I took the corporate route, which can be very lucrative for a few, but is a solid upper middle class earning for many. He went into business for himself, which has huge potential upside and a lot of risk. I married him before any of the potential upside was even on the horizon. I married him because I love him.
Which brings me to the most important part of this answer: How did I get a smart successful guy to marry me? You seem to be focused on finding rich guys without much thought as to how you get them to marry or be in a committed long term relationship with you. I got my husband to marry me by being his equal. You may interpret this anecdote to be a story of how a lucky girl happened to choose the right guy. But I would argue that the outcome was no coincidence. As a smart, successful, and driven woman, I am attracted to and attract the same type of man. While this doesn't necessarily equate to wealth, it raises the odds immensely. Feminism did much for the dating prospects of successful men. They no longer marry their secretaries, they marry their CFOs.
Bottom line: if you want to marry a rich guy, the secret is cultivating yourself into the dynamic, intelligent type of woman that a rich guy will marry. Luckily, you're 16 and still have plenty of time for that.
