Do you want/have a trophy wife/girlfriend? - Page 4

post #46 of 78
I voted yes as I have a hot girlfriend, but she is also smart and makes more money than me, so maybe I'm the trophy boyfriend? But because she's younger than me and hot, I like to show her off.

Note: calling or introducing your first wife as a "trophy wife", whether she deserves the title or not, is a little nauseating. On the other hand, it's just cynical when you do it for the second or successive wives.

This is the correct definition.

I think a key part of a trophy wife is, she only brings looks to the table. The guy, of course, only brings money/power/fame to the table. If either party should lose their primary asset, I think the other should be able to dispose of them and get all marital assets. So when the trophy wife's looks start to fade, she can be put out to pasture with no harm to the man. If the man should lose his standing, the wife should get all remaining marital assets.

Nick Cage is the trophy in that relationship. Holy shit would my mother be proud if I bagged me a Hollywood moviestar... even if it was Nicholas Cage.

May I present...Mr and Mrs Flavio Briatore?

Trophy wife? No. Trophy mistress? Maybe.

surprised no one has mentioned Sarkozy and Carla Bruni yet. He's not grotesque, but I dont think normally a guy like him would be married to a model half his age if it wasnt for his position.

Nick Cage's status is on the down slide now, pretty much ever since he married Lisa marie.
Sure he did act in some great movies, but look at his films now and how he looks.
Aim higher.

The jury is still out regarding who's who in this marriage...very well may be that Sarkozy is a trophy husband for a relatively unknown singstress

She really hasn't been a real model for a long time (even though she still does some campaigns here and there) and she's "only" 12 years younger than him.
