Are you a woman obsessed with marrying a professional athlete, high profile politician or eccentric multi-millionaire? Think again. There are benefits to marrying a regular Joe. Below are five of them.
1. He’s home.
Part of the issue with marrying a rich man with lots of money is that his job may keep him on the road. Ask any wife of a football or a famous actor. Either you deal with the fact that he’s only home a few months of the year or go on the road with him. Regardless of your decision, you sacrifice your time and don’t get the kind of care regularly that money can’t buy.
2. He’s faithful.
A big benefit of marrying a regular Joe is that you compete less with other women. Although your spouse might be faithful only by default, at least he is. Because of the number of women throwing themselves at rich and famous men, they often cheat. As a result, their wives have to learn how to share and turn a blind eye to the influx of women.
3. Real privacy.
Hate airing your dirty laundry? Don’t marry a man with special talents and means. When he messes up, the whole world gets to know. Just ask the ex-wife of Tiger Woods. When this seemingly nerdy guy cheated on his beautiful mate, no one could believe the accusations were true – including her. Unfortunately, she had to go through her embarrassment in the public. She didn’t have the luxury of keeping her business private.
4. No lawsuits.
Issues a majority of wealthy people complains about as a downfall of having money are lawsuits. A benefit of marrying a regular Joe is that you don’t have to worry about this kind of activity. Kooks, nuts and opportunists rarely target people with middle-class incomes. They overlook them and go for the big fish.
5. He’s reasonable.
Men with high achievements almost have high standards for their women. They want them to be a perfect size 2, tall, immaculate and charming. Let’s face it. Most women can’t meet up to these ridiculous standards. The best aspect of a regular Joe is that he’s usually down-to-earth and will accept you as-is. You don’t have to change one thing.
See the benefit of marrying a regular Joe? Don’t turn down that sweet guy next door. He may never be president of any major corporation, but he can still make you happy.
