QuoteOriginally posted by: zerdnaQuoteOriginally posted by: trackstarIf he married a supermodel, she would trade up at the first opportunity. There is a fair supply of billionaires in the world for that type of girl, she just needs to be in the right spot to see the deal flow.Women who are not stunningly beautiful are more likely to be faithful and also to put up with the man's personality issues.Of which there may be quite a few in a case like this.Word from the billionaire circle insider. What's trade up? Zuckerberg is like 19th richest man in US. If you take away very old people like Soros, Kochs, Waltons, and Adelson there are Gates, Ellison, and possibly Bloomberg left. So the scenario is that this imagined supermodel with cheat on Zuckerberg with one of the three, get zilch out of her prenup with him, and get one of them to marry her after she cheated on her husband? Actually, except for Ellison who married an OK looking Russian chick, none of the very rich people is marred to more than average looking woman. Look at the wives of Brin, Page, Gates, or Buffer. They are typically their classmates, not some idiotic supermodels. Whatever the reason, it's not a deviation, it's a norm.Yeah whatever. Trade up means start from a certain platform, keep your eyes open and find something better (richer, more powerful, more toys) and jump on to that next best thing as the opportunity comes along.Zuckerberg is only worth that on paper, mostly one kind of paper too. By contrast, some of these guys are diversified, especially the Russian mafia types Forbes Billionaires List Let your girlfriend look through here and pick out a few desirable candidates, just for fun. If she is going to put up with a surly Russian meathead, she might as well enjoy the journey in the material way.On Gates, et al: Yes, so those men can all focus on business and not worry about what is going on at home. So indeed, you are just echoing my point to quantmeh.**Fact Checker (very important when zerdna is in town):Larry Ellison's most recent wife was not Russian, she is American. I met her in 2004 and she does look like the photographs though.Melanie Craft - WikiThey divorced in 2010. The best thing about Larry is his America's Cup yachts. He himself is a migraine headache 24/7.
