Gold diggers rejoice: according to a survey by MillionaireMatch.com, San Francisco’s millionaire men are unlikely to require a pre-nup before getting hitched.
In a survey of 425 of the dating site’s loaded and love-lorn, less than 5 percent said they would want a pre-nup. (“Why ruin the romance with another piece of paper?” said one site user.)
“San Francisco millionaires overall tend to be less concerned with paperwork and romance,” said MillionaireMatch spokesman Darren Shuster in a statement. “This is a very passionate and impulsive community when it comes to matters of the heart.”
The site’s wealthy women weren’t quite as free-wheeling when it came to their finances: 81.6% said a pre-nup was “absolutely necessary.”
According to some research, this would indicate that the men of MillionaireMatch are actually more marriage-inclined than the women.
“If you’re thinking about a prenup, or — worse yet — your intended is pushing a prenup on you, you might as well go ahead and just cancel the wedding,” W. Bradford Wilcox, director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia, wrote in the New York Times last spring.
A National Center for Family and Marriage Research study found that couples who do not pool income are 145 percent more likely to end up in divorce court, compared those couples who share a bank account.
According to MillioniareMatch, this is how one female user summed up why she’s pro pre-nup: “In this town, you can always find a younger and hotter person. I don’t want to be left alone and with half as much money as I had before.”
