Disney movies have taught women for years that they should marry their one true one and live happily ever after. While that is all well and good, anyone who’s been married knows that there is another more practical side to love and marriage.

In the book Smart Girls Marry Money, the author tries to get women to view the whole love thing another way. It argues that women should not "throw your hot, youthful selves away on young, financially unproven men. They may never become successes, and if they do, they’ll probably just chuck you for younger models when you’re too old to successfully compete again in the marriage marketplace".

As you can see, the book, "Smart Girls Marry Money: How Women Have Been Duped Into the Romantic Dream -- and How They're Paying for It," by Elizabeth Ford and Daniela Drake, is controversial.
