About 19% of men admitted they were potential gold-diggers and would tie the knot with someone in order to benefit from their wealth and luxury lifestyle, compared with only 11% of women.
Pretty much a staple of a certain sort of historical novel (that is, those written back in history, not those set in history) isn\’t it, the pursuit of an heiress?
Or, as the great Russ Abbott once sang in the style of Noel Coward, ‘I’m Just After Your Cash!’
It also implies that men are more honest than women – only 11%!
This is far more common amongst Russian men than you’d think. For every gold-digging Russian woman after a foreign husband, there are three Russian men looking for a replacement mother who has a job and her own apartment.
