Yes it is true that men get TROPHY WIVES with power. However, much of the time this wealth and power is gained through intelligence of some sort.-Men get trophy wifes with their power not their intelligence. Suppose an intelligent guy was to go for the trophy wife though. How is this different from what I'm describing in my initial post? They're giving up searching for love, so lust will have to do.
Also, we are not only talking about what motivates a woman to be a trophy wife. We're saying that women are attracted to intelligence because it implies the *possibility* of power, at the very least. And power doesn't have to be being a CEO or multimillionaire ... power is mulch-faceted and can be as subtle as a man having power over his own life and where it leads him.
