Should I try to marry rich or land a job?

Deleted... I am not at all surprised by the hypocrisy and misogyny in the comment section. Pretty ridiculous that most men on this forum often mentally masturbate about getting a trophy wife (though I seriously doubt these flexers have the balls to afford one), but women are not allowed to expect to marry well. I have also decided that I would rather channel all of my efforts into landing a job than trying to become a trophy wife, so no need to project your assumptions on someone you don't know personally :)

Wow ok

Not in any position to answer this haha.

You sound like an ambitious person. If you think you might regret giving up in 20 years, then I'd go for it.

Otherwise, I'm sure there are really cool jobs in culture-focused/luxury sectors that are only available to someone your background.

Not bad for what comes off as a first jab at creative writing. I was in your shoes once, in high school, trying out different characters, worlds, themes, seeing what clicked for me. Keep at it and one day you might get somewhere

assuming this is not troll, 

As a guy, it's ingrained in our brains to be rich and powerful and work 100 hour weeks to reach the upper echelons ot society. Not sure why the above comments are trying to project their own desires in themselves onto women? I don't see anything wrong with a women's goal in life to be married to a rich/powerful man and have 6 babies honestly

1) what the fuck

3) I have not seen any candidate matching your description pass my desk

3) regardless, no VP (and MD? Lol) would ever hit on an interviewee 

4) at least get your timelines right

I'm a woman who usually tries my best supporting other women and even I have to say your post was an eyesore. It's nothing about misogyny or your gender, your post was just objectively trash and I seriously still can't believe you weren't just trolling. You somehow made yourself come across as worse than most shitposters here (whom are bad enough) and I applaude you for that.
