For centuries, women have traded whatever freedom, rights, desires they may have had for the man with money.
He may be ugly, he may have the personality of a hog, but he has money she can spend. She can have a car, buy clothes, drink champagne.

She can have her own little interests and visits so he becomes no more than a sufferable annoyance.
