A post at Good Men Project discussing, for starters, a piece titled “Your Hubby Zucks” at the New York Post by Rita Delfiner who writes:
It looked as if Mrs. Mark Zuckerberg had won the lottery when she married the Facebook boss last weekend — but now she appears to be the unluckiest lucky woman alive.
What’s Zuck’s crime? Despite being a billionaire, he only spent an estimated $25,000 on his wife’s ruby wedding ring. TMZ made a point
of highlighting how SIMPLE the ring was. We can assume that there are other deranged lunatics on the internet who think that Zuckerberg is a cheapskate. The charge that Zuckerberg is cheap has been walked back
a little after someone pointed out that red rubies fit Zuckerberg’s wife’s Asian ethnicity. But the pro-ring lobby showed their true colors. If Zuckerberg had absconded from his duty to spend x% of his earnings on a ring he would have deserved our collective shame.
All of this makes me wonder, how much do women want the man and how much do they want the ring?
