调查显示:现代女性择偶重“色”轻“财”

2006-05-28 15:06国际在线专稿

  As women gain financial equality with men, they are less interested in how much money their prospective partners have. And psychologists say ambitious younger women are also becoming less likely to pair off with someone significantly older than them.

  The survey, published in New Scientist, asked 1,800 women aged between 18 and 35 to rank how important they considered 13 different characteristics in men.

  These included financial prospects, social status, kindness, fondness of children, sense of humour, willingness to commit to relationships and physical attractiveness.

  The survey found that the more financially secure women in the survey ranked money much lower on their wish-lists than those participants with less money.

  It suggests more women are following in the footsteps of Hollywood star Demi Moore, 43, who started dating then unknown Ashton Kutcher - 15 years her junior - after splitting with fellow A-lister Bruce Willis, now 50.

  Fhionna Moore, of the University of St Andrew's School of Psychology, who led the study, said the results reflected changes in the workplace.

  She said: "Women are becoming more able to participate in the workforce and acquire their own resources and this is having an effect on the way they select potential long-term partners.

  "It appears that the more gender roles become equal in the control of resources, the more women will act like men in selecting mates."

  调查显示,由于现代女性赚钱的能力逐渐与男性旗鼓相当,女性在择偶时对男性的经济实力考虑得越来越低。同时,事业上春风得意的年轻女子也开始不愿意找年长许多的男人。

  圣安德鲁大学心理学院对1800名18岁至35岁的女性进行了调查。调查列举出男性可能具备的13项优势,包括有经济实力、有社会地位、品性善良、喜欢小孩、幽默风趣、对婚姻有责任感和外表英俊,要求被调查者按照自己择偶标准对男性的这些优势进行排序。

  结果发现,经济状况越是稳定的女性对男性的经济实力越是不在乎,而对男性的外貌更加看重。这似乎意味着现代女性的择偶标准开始和好莱坞女星接近。现年43岁的好莱坞女星黛米·摩尔在与功成名就的影星布鲁斯·威利斯分手后,义无返顾地投入比她小15岁的好莱坞无名小卒艾什顿·库奇的怀抱。

  负责此次调查的圣安德鲁大学心理学院的菲恩娜·摩尔指出,调查结果反映出了现代职场的变化。她说:“女性越来越有能力加入到职场并且为自己赚钱,这严重影响着她们的择偶观。调查结果显示,两性在对金钱的控制能力上越是趋于平等,女性择偶的方式就越像男性。”
