There’s a great post up at Bainbridge on “trophy wives.” It’s a short post that outlines an apparent ad that was put out on Craig’s List by a woman looking for a rich husband, and then a reply from a rich guy (or at least someone claiming to be) saying why she isn’t going to get what she’s looking for (or at least that she wasn’t what he was looking for). It’s funny in the sort of “is this what it’s come to?” kind of way. Basically, for those of you out there that think it’s fine to see others as merely tools (vessels in Confucianism), this is where that viewpoint leads with respect to relationships.
Go read it, it’s the perfect combination of sad and funny all at once.
To my younger students: is this the way your dating world is? Say it ain’t so!
