Why You Should Never Marry A Pretty Woman

Natural beauty is a rarity in this world. Yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but there is such a thing as universal beauty.

If you’re a successful guy, naturally you’ll want the best of everything: the best houses, the best cars, the “best” woman on your arm.

Because, whether we like to admit it or not, a man’s ability to attract beautiful women signals to everyone around him that he’s made it. Being married to a pretty woman is seen as a status symbol.

However, there’s a reason why many of the world’s richest men tend to marry averagely attractive women, and it’s not because they don’t have other options.

The truth is, marrying a beautiful woman will cause you nothing but grief; and if you’re trying to live a happy, simple life, then these types of women should be avoided at all costs.

(If you don’t believe me, just listen to that famous Jimmy Soul song, which includes the line, “If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife.”)

Here are just some of the reasons why, if you can help it, you should never marry a pretty woman.

They’re very high maintenance

That beauty isn’t easy to maintain.

Pretty women know that their beauty works for them, and as such they need to devote much of their time to always looking good.

They’ll never want to be caught dead in sweatpants or without makeup; they always have to look their best. And looking their best usually means taking forever to get ready, and spending all of your hard-earned money on their hair and body.

They’ll think they’re better than you

Pretty women are used to being treated like queens; they’re always the center of attention. They think that because of their beauty, all men should bow down and worship at their feet.

Because of this, it’s very easy for them to consider themselves a prize, and you someone who’s lucky to have them.

Now, while all couples should appreciate each other, she’s likely to appreciate you less than you appreciate her, because she believes you’re the one getting the better deal.

You’ll constantly feel insecure

Although she looks great on your arm, you’re not the only person who thinks that way. Fact is, there are plenty of richer, more attractive, more successful men whose eye she’ll catch, leaving you feeling insecure about how suitable you are for her.

Her beauty can get her into the most influential circles, around the most powerful men. How long will it be before you start wondering if she’s being unfaithful, or looking to replace you?

Because she can always do better than you, if she’s pretty enough. And that’s enough to make you miserable and mistrusting of everything she does, everywhere she goes, and everyone she speaks to.

Their beauty is sometimes all they have going for them

If she’s got a great personality, you’re one of the lucky few. But if her looks are all she has going for her, what happens when they fade?

She’ll have to find another way to make herself stand out in society: maybe by relying on other less attractive assets, like intelligence or sense of humor.

If she has none of those things, and you have zero in common because you married for looks, your marriage simply won’t last.

You’ll tolerate her disrespect

Beautiful women can make smitten men accept all types of abuse and disrespect, due to the fact that men feel privileged and honored to be married to them.

For this reason, you’re much more likely to put up with bad behavior because you’re afraid to lose her.

She knows this and will exploit it, knowing that you think you can’t do better than her.

They have higher expectations than others

Pretty women have higher expectations than average-looking women because they know the power their beauty yields.

Just like you, they’re fully aware of the value men place on their beauty and how much men of means will do to obtain them.

It’s like currency; they’ll leverage it and try to get the best deal they can, which means you’ll need to offer her much more than the other guys vying for her attention, and more than you would an average woman with fewer options.

They won’t pull their weight

Some beautiful women consider their beauty the only thing they need to come to the table with, and won’t do anything else in the marriage apart from wake up and look pretty.

You’ll soon find yourself having to hire nannies to look after your children, maids to keep the house clean, a chef to cook for the family, and so on. Your beautiful wife won’t be doing any of that!

You know why? Because that’s not why you married her, and she knows it.

People will assume she’s just with you for your money

A beautiful woman is often seen as a trophy. There will always be people who think she married you only because of your money and not due to any genuine connection or feelings between the two of you.

Whether that’s true or not, it won’t feel good.


We can’t help who we fall in love with. If you follow your heart and it leads you to a woman whose beauty defies all logic, then I wish you luck.

What you absolutely shouldn’t do, though, is go looking for the most beautiful woman you can find to marry, as that almost never ends well. Look for the inner qualities before you focus on the aesthetics, because the latter will vanish over time.
