My goal in life is to marry a rich man, says lady on Twitter

A young woman went on social media to share one of her life's goals: It is to marry a rich man.

Rich men are highly desirable to women, studies show. Women want someone who will take care of their young children and this has been the case since the beginning of time.

I think people should want whatever they want. I think people should "know their worth" and should go for the guy they feel is the absolute best option for them.

My only concern is that we live in a generation where most women have opportunities to make their own money and not just depend on a man. The women of old had no option but to dream of a rich man. It was their goal, their measure of success because they were not allowed to work, to take part in the economy and governance.

In the show Downton Abbey, which is set just before World war 1, Lady Mary Crawley gets very irritated at her life. A life waiting for a rich man to marry her. She even tells her love interest, Matthew Crawley this.

The modern woman has opportunities to go to work, to take part in the economy and in governance. Why is the modern women's goal the same as the old woman? Why is the modern women's dream not to be like an Oprah Winfrey?

Oprah is a billionaire and is not married. She owns The Oprah Winfrey network, a channel that has reality programming as well as scripted programming. Her show, The Oprah Winfrey show ran for 26 years. It won so many daytime Emmy's that she stopped submitting it for nomination to give other shows a chance. She has been with her boyfriend Stedman Graham for more than 20 years and she is a lot richer than he is.

Maybe the modern woman should take advantage of the opportunities at her disposal.
