Why Smart Women Don't Marry Money

I found a quote I really like yesterday in Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's book, "Dating Secrets of the Ten Commandments":

    "Warren Buffet, America's most successful investor, once said, 'To marry for money is probably a bad idea at any time.  But it's especially stupid if you're already rich'

    There are few people in the West today who aren't rich.  Yes, that includes you, although you are probably too cheap to buy this book and are now perusing it at a friend's house.  But in all seriousness -- are you starving?  Do you have only rags to dress in?  Of course not.  To marry for money, then, is simply dumb, dumb, dumb.  I could understand impoverishing your soul in order to save your body from starvation -- but just to dress you body in Gucci rather than Gap?  That's just plain silly."
