Are Chinese Women the New "Trophy Wives"?
It is a fact. Everywhere you look, more and more rich foreign guys are marrying Chinese women, especially in places with a dense Chinese population, like in the US. In cities like Los Angeles and New York it is common to see Chinese women shopping in expensive brand stores with their mixed children. So, what is it that got these guys ignoring all the skinny busty blondes and pursuing Chinese girls?
There are probably multiple answers to this question, but one that seems to come up over and over again is the fact that Chinese women tend to care more for their families. In these uncertain days, when every year seems to bring about a new financial crisis, more and more western women are investing time in their careers, while putting their families a little aside. Western men, in the other hand, have been watching helplessly as their women slowly take over their role as being the sole financial support of the household. The truth still remains: men enjoy having a wife to look after them, to look after the children and to keep things running around the house. Knowing that they have a wife that depends on them, gives them a feeling of dominance, which just makes them feel a little bit more like a man.
The last decade has brought about the rise of women to power. Never before have so many women attended universities and occupied important governmental and corporate positions. Western women love to boast the fact that they are financially independent, because to them it is almost like coming out from years of reclusion and finally being able to see the sunlight. Its like showing off the prize for winning a long and strenuous battle. What women didn´t really count on all these years, is that you may be able to change the way society thinks, but you can´t change the laws of nature.
It is a fact that women love to feel secure. When looking for a partner, most women will even put financial security ahead of many other aspects and this is something that they do even unconsciously. Even those women who have a thriving career and are completely financially secure, will not allow themselves to marry or even fall in love with a man who earns less than them or who has an inferior education. Not to mention the old saying that women love guys with expensive cars and pockets full of money. It´s not about the steel shaped structure in form of an expensive car they love so much. It´s not about the greenish colored rectangular piece of paper with dollar signs printed on it. For women, it´s all about the sense of security and confidence, which these objects are able to bring them.
In this scenario, where the figure of the male provider is coming to an end, Chinese women have come to fill a gap. Most adult Chinese women today were raised by very traditional parents, who taught them the importance of being a good wife and taking care of her husband. Being a good wife is an important part of Chinese culture and most Chinese women are willing to make great sacrifices for their families and for their marriage. Tradition will heavily influence even Chinese women who have a higher education and are very well capable of leading a financially secure life of her own. For wealthy western men, who already possess everything, but a caring wife, it is the perfect match.
Another reason why more and more wealthy guys are showing off their Chinese wives, is the simple fact that Asian women possess a “quiet” beauty, which does not require them to spend hours in the gym or getting thousands of facials done. They also seem to age much less than white women, which gives an older man the feeling of being with a much younger girl without having to deal with all the age difference related issues. Wrapping it all up, Chinese women are becoming popular, because they are easier to please and are not ashamed of being (or feeling) dependent on their husbands or boyfriends.
