Hypergamy is not about the children
When we look at the expenses of hypergamic women, we discover they want luxurious products and services that aren’t necessary for raising the children.
For example, a swimming pool is not necessary to raise children. Also, many women among those hypergamic women want a luxurious SUV. However, we don’t need to have a luxury SUV like a BMW, an Audi, a Range Rover to bring the children to School. You don’t need to buy a huge house for the children. Those expenses are all driven by the greed of those women.
The children are an excuse for some female manipulators to obtain luxury products and services that aren’t necessary, and they want a man to pay for it.
Second assumption: This was like that since the beginning of the
It is easy to make such an assumption when we look at history from our perspective. However, there were other society organizations by the past. A long time ago, a woman didn’t have any choice when choosing a partner. She didn’t have Tinder, Facebook, Instagram, and the internet. She had no validation from anyone. She lived in a tribe of 10 to 30 people and she had perhaps 4 or 5 male partner options. I looked at the mating ritual of some african tribes and I didn’t see any hypergamy.
People had the same background in this tribe. People had way fewer assets than now. In some societies, there were arranged marriages for centuries, where the bride and the young man had nothing to say.
In primitive tribes, caste systems and communist societies, there was no hypergamy.
For sure, hypergamy is related to the increasing household wealth in the world. It is a sociological behavior that is possible only because households were never as rich as today in a liberal and non-religious world. I am not criticizing liberalism and atheism. It is just a fact. People have more assets than their predecessors.
