Lets touch on the "Trophy Wife" aspect of why we (men) go to the FSU in order to find a lady:

 I hope most who read and post on forums like this know and understand the basic reasons we go to the FSU in the search for a lady. But what about the reasons we do not talk openly about? After all what is wrong with wanting a young, beautiful, sexy and intelligent wife who has more traditional values? What is wrong with wanting to be with a lady who knows how to dress nicely and take care of her appearance? What is wrong with having a "Trophy Wife" if both people are happy?


 Quite honestly when I started my search I was 44 with 2 teen age children, my prospects of finding a beatiful 25 year old lady in northern California who wanted to settle to a quiet home life were extremily slim (non existant would be more like it). Why should a man have to compromise for a worn out feminist in the throws of mentapause when there are other options?

 Some have said what will happen when the man who may be 20 years older turns 65 and she is 45? Ok lets be honest most women are over the hill somewhere between 45 and 50 years old, there chances of finding a man their age or near it are much slimmer than they were when she was 25 and you were 45. So enjoy the ride and your bride, don't worry what other people say or think, they are most likely jealous anyway as they look at the fat, old nag they are stuck with.



Oh I think there might be some mileage left in this one :)

Well at least when a necropost comes up we know the archives are being perused.. LOL

Tiger was our prenuptial king for a while, interesting kinda guy quite insistent regarding his views.

I may not agree with them but accept that in reality there are many that think along his lines.  

The connections he drew between Prenuptial Agreements and Offshore Trusts are kind of contradictory since Prenuptial agreements usually require full financial disclosure of both parties at the outset.

Oh well...

I recall that he was indeed wealthy, yet the prenup with his wife would give her almost nothing.  Not good IMO.  Reminds me of another RWD member.

TP's photos and prenup discussion are in the archives somewhere.

Evidently his crossing route took him through the Bermuda Triangle!

Couple years ago PM'd him and invited him over since his planned journey passed our doorstep.. even gave GPS coordinates.. -no show.  Think we would have enjoyed it.

I do hope he and family are doing well though.

His wife sent me a nice PM just a few months back - and she and Michael and their daughter are all doing well.

On the topic of a "trophy wife" - not sure about all you other OMB's - but in my case, my wife is a "trophy" indeed - and I am not the least bit ashamed to confess it.   :tongueout:

Yeah, remember that!

There was an excuse offered IIRC, something along the lines of the necessity to use large fonts since he was typing on a mobile device.. small screen, big letters didn't make much sense at all to me though..  stronger reading lenses would have been less irritating.

Nothing wrong with a big age gap and trophy wife so long as you are happy to accept the risks that go with it. Don't really understand the point of Prenups and as it turns out where I'm living once you are past the 5yr marriage mark they are basically worthless. The stats paint a pretty ugly picture for marriages with age gaps around the 20 yr mark but there will always be those in the minority that work and everyone on the board likes to see relationship success stories.

As I said, if you are happy to take that risk then go ahead, in theory if you were looking at up to 10 yrs younger and are now looking at up to 20 yrs younger there should be twice as many to choose from  :)

TigerPaws was and is still married to the beautiful Mrs Victoria. They are sailing on the seas and enjoying life from the last PM I got from them. Say what you want about the guy but he's still hanging in there. I think I saw them a few months back while on our cruise to Key West and The Bahamas. TP was driving the boat and Victoria was working her tan and the kid was probably below. TP looked pretty content with a little captains hat and smoking a Cohiba and Mrs Victoria was looking stunning as always. They were a ways away from my ship so maybe it wasnt a Cohiba.

   I met a "10" once in Odessa.....


    My god...I was walking early in the morning around 6am and looked up to meet the eyes of a lady who was indeed a "10". I looked right into her eyes as my mind went totally blank and she looked into my eyes. After reflecting on this later I felt a bit stupid but it was a natural stupid..lol. She looked at me and stopped and smiled and she turned 45 degrees to let me know which direction she was heading. I swear she must have woken up at 3am and done the perfect makeup and hair and I swear to anything she was a 10.

Hello,
 Just had to jump in on this topic with my 2 cents. I am still in the letter-writing stage with a UW, but this topic would pertain to any woman from any country.
 Just like most men I know, I am looking for a 10 or as close as I can get to it. My criteria is:
1) Family values close to mine.
2) Compatable interests
3) Sincerity
4) Want of a family
5) Intelligence
6) Beauty
 This is not a complete list, but good enough to demonstrate my point. A given man may rate beauty very high on his list, want of a family ( a close second), and he may not even care about intelligence. Thus his perfect "10" may be a beautiful, airhead that wants a family. As my girl says she is more interested in intelligence, values, and fairness, thus her perfect "10" may be well...me (ha ha, I'm humble too).
 But my point is, but the man and woman may both find their "10", but for instance the lady may be a beauty, and the man may look just so-so. But too each other they may both be "10"'s. Maybe a man 15-20 years older was on her wish list.
 The girl I am writing wanted a Brad Pitt look alike, But she says she can do without his looks.
 (Good thing because I am much better looking!!!)

This would be pretty stupid of the man.  The children's intelligence will be influenced by both parents.

Call me old fashion but when I think of a "trophy wife" I think of a woman that I am proud to be with and supports me in my endeavors as I would hers.  But then again if I married someone I really don't give a damn if others see her as I do or not. but what do I know I'm a simple old fashion kind of guy. :noidea:

Just happened on this thread by accident.
Kind of surprised that it died out way back when.

One thing was discussed a little concerning has anyone ever seen an actual 10.
The closest I ever came was when a mid 30s couple came into our house to discuss buying a parcel in our subdivision.  The woman was in my estimation a 9.5 at least.  And she didn't act like she even knew that she was a 9.5.  The guy was probably an 8.  My wife was not in the room when they came in and sat down at dining room table.  But later she came in and sat down with us.  After they left, my wife looked at me and said  WOW  in reference to the woman's looks.
Unfortunately, they didn't buy as I wouldn't agree to the placement site of a second building they wanted to put on the property.
A beautiful woman is pleasant to look at, but it is easier to live with a pleasant acting one.

Back on trophy wife . . . a couple of guys were on the right track when they stated that trophy wife doesn't have to be based on facial looks or even total looks.

Yes to be considered a trophy wife, she would probably have to be above average looking in face, at least above the average of other men's wives in his circle.

But still, each man can establish his own trophy characteristics.  For me, it was obtaining a woman  whose total score on a number of variables was higher than that which I could obtain locally.

I am a 'body man' over a 'face man' so a slender shape was at top of my list along with being at least 5 foot 6 inches.
But still I desired a face above average.
At least minimum English skills . . . i.e. no interpreters ever required.
High intelligence was also required, and I found it in a number of women.
I really lucked out with my current wife as she has super intelligence having obtained PhD in  mathematics.
But luckily she has none of the 'weirdness' associated with many math and science geniuses.
Unfortunately she has the problem of many women (some men also) in that she cannot understand anything mechanical.  She hasn't the least understanding of what causes a car to move from here to there . . . just push on gas pedal or brake and turn steering wheel.
Personality also high on the list.  Current wife is quick to smile, rarely in bad mood, has good sense of humor, knows how to talk with complete strangers, etc.
High interest in sex required, and I found this with several women.
Not deal breakers, but nice if the gal has interest in music, art, history, museums, outdoor activities, etc.
What about cooking skills and house cleaning?
Luckily my wife is great at both.  Would I accept a gal who didn't  have these skills . . . probably I could come to resent it over time.

I have seen one "10".  She was the better half's neighbour, four or five years older than him.  Beautiful face, thick blonde hair, taller, with a perfect figure.  People literally stopped and stared as she walked past them. In Kyiv, where attractive women are a dime a dozen! The better half first saw her when he was about 15, her brother was BH's classmate.  So he met her when he went to the brother's apartment.  The BH said she was the human embodiment of the term "beautiful until she opens her mouth".  He said she was the most empty headed person he had ever met.  She had no malice, was just incredibly stupid.  He could not bear to be in her company, ever, as she was so stupid.  She ended up marrying a general's son, and moved to the centre of Kyiv, to a luxury apartment.  But they split within two years, after the birth of their daughter.  The son couldn't take living with her, presumably because of her lack of intellect.

I think the traditional meaning of the term 'trophy wife' is one based solely on her looks/physical appearance as in the guy was walking around with his trophy wife on his arm. Trophy like a glittering sparkling trophy to flaunt in front of all the other guts you walk past, the prettier the girl the greater the trophy. So in that respects an at least above average looking girl facially I think, after than how she looks bodywise, certainly not overweight to qualify as a trophy wife. That dies not mean to say any such girl that is not a trophy wife will not make as good or better a partner to be wife, most likely they will be better.

A lot of girls in or near the trophy wife category have given me looks of interest over the years, but I always knew they wanted a guy who's 'all that' and I just fell a bit short in one or two categories to qualify lol. I also knew that they would show signs of interest to many guys to get off on the ego of it all and many guys would always be after them. One girl I knew in High School was a dead ringer for Suzanna Hoff's, the lead singer on the Bangles, very pretty, baby faced, reasonable height, large boobs and attractive bushy hair. Suffice to say most if the guys were in awe of her as was I.

Kherson girl I would say was around the trophy wife definition not perfect but pretty enough, when I was walking around Paphos with her I heard this English guy walking past commenting to his very chubby English girl about me as a guy with glasses (at the time) and not much muscle was with a girl like her :D After that I heard him tell his girl that it wouldn't harm her to lose a few pounds as they passed by, I don't think sge appreciated it lol. That said at times I felt like the loneliest man ever with her. We didn't have much in common and so it was mostly all her looks but at points I realised during the holiday that I would rather have someone I could get along with in a companionship.

The present girl we are very much good companionship wise and having stuff in common, good communication. I think in general someone just fits with you and you with them or they don't so much. If the girl's an airhead then she will probably suit a guy who just doesn't think that much and so on and so forth. Occasionally there are opposites that bounce off each other well but usually I think those that are mostly alike tend to do the best, not exactly alike but mostly. Present girl is attractive looking enough, about right for me I think as too attractive looking without having something big yourself and it can be a problem. I think in general having someone you can get along well with in life and share problems is the main thing. Pretty girls are magnetic but there can be more to a good relationship than her being a trophy wife.

Boetheis,


My wife is attractive. I have dated more (physically attractive) women. But my wife and i have many things in common. We both like to fish, swim, sail, hike, look for fossils, travel.......and many other things. I have never said I would like to hang-out with the guys.......more. When I think of her "gone".....it makes me very sad. There is much more to life than {good looking). If you are lucky you will find this out.
