The Gold Digger Myth

Are we all just some gold diggers?
In reality are we all a little superficial and don't know it?
I actually feel that there is way, way, way more to this topic, than we all are admitting too... But somehow the women are getting blamed for it! 
and Nailah D'arcy will not stand for it!

History will tell you that marriage was used as a tool for financial gain, such as land, money, status etc; rarely did anyone every marries for love.
In fact, I believe most marriages are for a benefit, and since this trend has been going on for centuries some of us may not even recognize that we are still doing it now.... Due, to 50% of divorce rates, we must mistake qualities we admire for love!

A gold digger can be in many forms; A man, or women looking for certain qualities
such as, money, genes, protection, physical appearance, status, intelligence, and even personality.... All these great things can diminish over time.
And if these are the qualities you are a looking for, you just may be a gold digger! lol
Could it be true that we all were trained to look for these vain qualities? but dislike others who flaunts it.

Is it wrong to look for beneficially qualities in your mate? Or is gold digging just a myth?

I did my research, as always. I asked many question from all types of people... And of course I did my little history research.

I've got some very angry answers, and some neutral answers. But mostly a lot of hate from the men. Most of the women seem to be very neutral about this topic.
What is a dowry?
The money, goods, or estate that a woman brings to her husband in marriage; a gift of money or property by a man to or for his bride

Dowry was a widely practiced in Europe, and many other countries. Marriage would always be connected to benefits.. but if your lucky you may find love, who knows!

But, before you go ahead, and sing Kanye West "Gold Digger" song, and before you make judgement past anyone... look at your past relationship, and then look up history... technology has changed, but not the human race.

Restez glamour et scandaleux
Amour toujours
