Dr Peter Jonason from the University of Western Sydney is an expert in personality psychology and individual differences. In three separate studies, the preferences of participants for mates with money, derived from a of sources — including work income, inheritances, windfalls, and even embezzlement — was analysed. In one of the studies, women participated in an online survey in which they were asked to state whether they preferred a man who earned or inherited his money in a variety of relationships that differed in seriousness.
The relationships ranged from marriage to one-night stand relationships. For one-night stands, less than 60 per cent of women wanted their partner to have earned his money, and only 40 per cent of women wanted a man who inherited his money.
The ability to acquire a steady supply of income through direct effort reflects certain underlying qualities such as intelligence, and a strong work ethic. Picking a mate with these qualities is a safer bet for women because, if the money runs out, there is a greater chance their partner can regain financial stability in the future.
Particularly when it comes to short-term relationships, personal wealth is less of a consideration for men. Search query. Site Courses Search query Submit.
