We all know too well about monetary possessions: they may not make you happy completely, but we’d rather spend our sorrows on a luxurious sports ride than on an ordinary bike. While it’s never suggested that these women only marry for cash, it’s a strong bet that the idea may likely have entered their minds. There will never be a perfect marriage and couples will not be completely compatible, but these beautiful women tugged the hearts of men and proved why they’re worth having around. It just shows that not every woman is a cash cow waiting to splurge their days away with useless things.
