Despite the fact that many women are becoming wealthier, and men less wealthy – often because of crippling divorce settlements, let’s not forget – one truth remains eternal. Money must flow from men to women, if necessary at the state’s behest, not from women to men.
Women are disinclined to financially support men, and where possible will pair with a man better off than they are – a phenomenon termed ‘associative mating’. So what happens when a woman has more money than her ex-partner (regardless of the reason why)? It’s all too predictable. I must alert The Everyday Whining Project to this iniquity. Women paying alimony to men… who ever heard of such a crazy thing?
