Financial stress is the No. 1 reason for divorce in America. You must be a very wise man because you are reading this very relevant article!
Stop acting rich and start becoming rich. Ukrainian women are very careful when it comes to their money, so you would be well-advised to be financially sophisticated as well. Due to the popularity of Instagram and other similar social media platforms, many people are showing off by uploading photos in which they look rich or act rich. But in fact, chances are they are broke, because old-money doesn’t behave like that. A best-selling book called The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America's Wealthy (written by Thomas J. Stanley) illustrates this point vividly. According to Stanley, most millionaires drive Toyota, wear Timex watches and drink lower-end alcohol. In other words, if you want to become a millionaire, you must only purchase things that you can afford. In this modern society, saving money is so underrated. But that’s the most important skill that you must master because cash is king and Ukrainian beauties agree with that.
Hang out with the right reference group. On the famous TV show Desperate Housewives, Gabby and Carlos are the rich couple, whereas Susan and Mike are the poor couple. If Susan wants to wear expensive clothes like Gabby does, she will become even poorer. In real life, we all know someone who hangs out with the wrong peer group – their friends are much richer than them, so they have to keep up with the Joneses by purchasing more expensive clothes, cars and houses, i.e. something that can’t really afford but they would like to have in order to impress their friends. If you are married to a Ukrainian wife, please don’t do that because Ukrainian beauties don’t believe in the Jones. Gary Vaynerchuk is an immigrant from East Europe and he even says he is going to kill the Joneses! A recent study in America also explains that each hour of watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians leads to a decrease in savings of at least US$200 a year. In the popular book How to be richer, smarter and better-looking than your parents, Zac Bissonnette states that the financial suicide of competitive consumption is something that many people must pay attention to these days. And it’s perfectly okay to have more poor friends because their spending habits will show you and your Ukrainian bride how to save money!
Don’t let your Ukrainian girl watch The Real Housewives TV show. Hit series The Real Housewives is all about comparison and shopping sprees – it’s something your Ukrainian beauty must avoid watching. Girls from Ukraine are well-known for their modest personality, so you don’t want to change that. You want to make sure she keeps her good qualities forever and never becomes a real housewife like what she sees on TV. That TV show is the worst reference group that any woman can have because almost every housewife is flaunting their wealth on TV.
