Trophy Wife

Updated on December 19, 2012

How to Find & Keep a Trophy Wife

As a young man of limited means and charm, I thought I had no hope of marrying a trophy wife.

However, Fortune smiled on me one day and I received the chance to pursue and marry the woman of my dreams.

This lens contains tips and information to help you source, attract and retain a life partner who is superior to you in style, spirit, social station and/or intellect.

Though the road is neither short nor easy, it can lead you to success.

Now read on!

Choose a woman with power & presence.

One who enjoys live music.

And animals.

A love of outdoor activities is excellent.

A superior work ethic is vital.

As are table manners...

...And ability to handle alcohol.

Observe her interaction with infants.

They are excellent judges of character.

Holiday resorts offer excellent prospects.

Lure her with trinkets.

Shoes can be used to devastating effect.

Success can be repeated ad infinitum.

I warmly welcome your feedback.

      My first sprinkling of angel dust on your trophy wife lens has long worn off so I am back once again to scatter a little more. It is my quest this week to re-bless some of the lenses which I blessed way back in 2010. Your lens is on this list.

      I think it is so nice that you value your wife and for us fortunate wives that feel adored, we can be models to the women who do not know how very valuable they are! Thank you.

      CozyKitty 6 years ago

      The title of this lens kept me away for a while. When I finally decided to take the plunge and have a look, I was prepared to be offended by your male-chauvinistic viewpoint. So glad I WAS WRONG! This is a very sweet tribute done with love and humor. All the best to both of you ...

      @newbizmau: Super photgraphically and wittily awesome how you treasure that "trophy." Mostly, women use it to refer to the interloper with sympathy to the nice lady he ditched. So the way you used it made me laugh out loud.

    • Amy Fricano profile image

      Amy Fricano 6 years ago from WNY

      Awesome, funny and photo-spectacular. Women often use "trophy wife" with sympathy for the first nice lady he ditched, so I LOVE the way you use it. You three all all "trophies."

      This is just wonderful--everyone enjoys a love story in any form. This is also a lady with an amazing sense of humor to match yours! You must have a lot of laughter in your home. You have a unique way of presenting a trophy wife with no negative connotations--how do you do that? The secret if love, isn't it? I also observe with the shoes, that there are no low back issues--heels are the first to go.
