Don't Marry a Career Woman? 

In my daily cursory glance at slate, I noticed this piece about an article in Forbes. One thing not mentioned (why would it be?) is a working paper I read in a seminar last semester that demonstrates pretty conclusively that women who work in male-dominated industries are much more likely to get divorced than their counterparts in female-dominated industries*. So it's not career women in general you need to avoid, just ones in male-dominated industries. (Since may of this blogs readers are lawyers/lawyers in training, in my opinion, marrying a lawyer is a good move. My informal sense of things is that law will be increasingly a gynocracy). Career women, don't cry off all your eye liner just yet. What we have here is a market failure.

I, for example, have long sought out a sugar momma to finance my interests in smoking weed, staring into space, and recreational space travel. In a stunning upset to feminism, career women seem be unequal to men in at least one particular way. Career men have long been content roping some bimbo to be a trophy wife.

Aren't you interested in equality anymore, women? I've been going to the gym. If you make me your trophy husband, I can guarantee you will be doin' more screwin' than a sommelier. You need to work late hours? I won't ask questions. I'll be working long hours drinking beer in the unfinished basement with high school girls. Need to travel a lot on business? Good! I've been meaning to set up the world's greatest hotwheels track inside the house. Come on ladies. Susan B. Anthony is crying in heaven. Take a ride on the M-Train.


*Many measures were taken to control for the effects of the personalities of women who take hard-charging jobs in fields such as investment banking.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
