Excellent piece, Krishen Samuel. I believe we are inching, slowly, away from the rescue me type of romance. At least, I hope so! Although it will surely survive for some, wouldn’t it be better if we married for companionship and love, not money and security? For that to happen though, society must value the contributions of its citizens equally, so women aren’t forced to rely on the higher earning power of men, leaving us to drool over royal weddings and reality TV shows about wealthy men choosing a bride from a pool of needy applicants. Capitalism favors testosterone.
