Is A Smart, Successful Woman The New “Trophy Wife”?

The running joke on some college campuses is that many of the women enroll to get their MRS degree. The joke is meant to imply that a good number of the female enrollees are there only to find a husband. Sometimes these types of women are referred to as “trophy wives”, and the image is that of a beautiful woman who stays home to raise the kids and keep house while her husband earns a living. The most typical stereotype is that of a younger woman, married to a wealthy older man. That image seems to be changing though, and it is for the better.

With celebrity marriages (and break ups) a mainstay of popular social media sites, the term “trophy wife” has taken on a new meaning. Some of Hollywood’s most desirable actors are seeking women who are both beautiful and smart to marry. Some examples:

●          George and Amal Clooney.

●          Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan.

This trend is a huge step forward in the fight for gender equality. It seems that in today’s world, brains are beautiful. Still yet, all the brains in the world won’t prevent a divorce. Every type of marriage is susceptible to hard times, and when a couple is unable to overcome those hard times a divorce may be the answer.
