What do women really want? Money.
Women want freedom from financial stress more than they want to be thin, more than they want a faithful partner, more than sex and, in some cases, more than they love their children, according to a poll on bettyconfidential.com.
“With the current state of the economy, there’s a lot of anxiety about money, and it seems women would give up most anything to stop worrying,” said Myrna Blyth, editor-in-chief of the site. “I doubt there are many people who would tell you that they’d rather have their husband cheat than have to worry about their finances, but when given the anonymity of our polls, women reveal their true priorities, and it seems money is the big one.”
Desire for money beat freedom from dieting 83 percent to 17 percent and beat having your partner staying faithful 52 percent to 48 percent.
Women’s love for their children was the only thing that beat freedom from financial stress, but 40 percent chose money over their kids.
