How to marry a Forbes man

"Weasel your way into a private party" -- and other great tips!

Published August 23, 2006 6:03PM (EDT)

An article titled "Don't Marry Career Women" currently appears on Forbes' Web site, which is funny considering that some of the attitudes therein far predate the Internet. ARPAnet, even. To the many irate readers who've e-mailed us about that one: Stay tuned. We career women are on the case, thereby neglecting our partners' emotional needs.

But while you're waiting, don't miss the apparent companion piece, "How to Land a Rich Man." (Or Forbes' new Quiz and 10 Sex Moves to Make Him Melt sections.) It's also available, with pretty pictures, at AOL. Advice includes: "Get yourself involved in a committee and win yourself a ticket into the world of deep pockets and wealthy mates. Join both parties if you must." This article is geared, I guess, for all the ladies who saw the "career women" piece and quit their jobs.
