    A young and pretty lady wishes to marry a rich guy- reply
    from a financial person

    A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:

    Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?

    I'm going to be honest of what I'm going to say here. I'm 25 this
    year. I'm very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a
    guy with $500k annual salary or above. You might say that I'm greedy,
    but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New
    York. My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who
    has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married? I wanted to
    ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you? Among those I've
    dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is
    my upper limit. If someone is going to move into high cost residential
    area on the west of New York City Garden, $250k annual income is not

    I'm here humbly to ask a few questions:

    1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the
    names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)

    2) Which age group should I target?

    3) Why most wives of the riches is only average-looking? I've met
    a few girls who don't have looks and are not interesting, but they are
    able to marry rich guys.

    4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be
    your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)

    Here's a reply from a Wall Street Financial guy:

    Dear Ms. Pretty,

    I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of
    girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me
    to analyze your situation as a professional investor. My annual income
    is more than $500k, which meets your requirement,
    so I hope everyonebelieves that I'm not wasting time here

    From the standpoint of a businessperson, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple; so let me explain. Put the detailsaside, what you're trying to do is an exchange of 'beauty' and'money': Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair andsquare. However, there's a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade,but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, myincome might increase from year to year, but you can't be prettieryear after year. Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am anappreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It's not justnormal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is youronly asset, your value will be much worry 10 years later.

    By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position,
    dating with you is also a 'trading position'. If the trade value
    dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long
    term – same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel
    to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with
    great depreciation value will be sold or 'leased'. Anyone with over
    $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will
    not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to
    marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a
    rich person with $500k annual income. This has better chance than
    finding a rich fool.

    Hope this reply helps. If you are interested in 'leasing' services, do
    contact me.
