    While going for "wealth and power" alone can be shallow, I believe that women are naturally programmed to look for certain traits (such as status and resources) in a partner that may have to do with him being a good father to her children. This is largely because, with women being the child bearers, the investment is very high on their behalf (time and effort in child bearing and rearing). So they are attuned to looking for a partner who will also invest resources into a relationship and family. It is akin to men who prefer their partners to be decent looking, warm and caring, which are traits that would make a woman a quality wife and mother.

    That said, "wealth and power" can have a wide variety of meanings, and there are always exceptions from the norm. There are plenty of rich men who have problems finding women due to their difficult character, for example (I've heard of women who were in relationships with rich men and complained about being treated like they were their property or servants, others who felt like they were shown off as trophy wives, etc). Not to mention that wealth and power can go just as easily as they come, and not necessarily everyone who has them is industrious. I would say that being concerned with matters such as financial stability is normal to a certain degree, especially if one is planning on raising a family. However, pure materialism is another matter. It can be shallow and even counterproductive. What if, for example, the husband loses his job due to matters that are outside of his control? A good, faithful wife would be there to support him, as well as their children, in the best way that she can.

    I think going for ''Wealth and Power'' is more like urban city peoples ideas than those people living in country sides.

    Then I shortly see some TV-serie about Swedish millionare wifes (living in California) ... their lifes, ideas, talks ... it makes me almost puke. Partly because of those women and partly because American lifestyle ... selfishness and superficial shines miles away.

    With money? I don't need it more than we have now (my parents). The land/forest/lakes used to keep its value too. Of course I would not like to mouth to feed my man and children ... alone either. But above that, all the rest are more important.

    With power? Yes, would love to have some power (= political influence) as these countries are suffering here. Not for me, but for coming generations.

    I don't really know. I mean, I certainly appreciate wealth to a certain level, because I love to be a stay-at-home-mother, so the man should be able to provide for the family. But he doesn't need to be really rich. My husband has a normal middle-class income which is enough to support us as a family with three children, so it's enough for me. I don't need more "wealth" or "power" than that. Personality is more important. Strength and self-confidence and a sense of humor is what makes a man attractive to me - and thankfully my husband has these traits.
