Men, take some advice from ForbesWoman and If you want to find Mrs. Right, don't bother looking until you have a job.

It's harsh, but seventy-five percent of women surveyed by ForbesWoman and YourTango said they would not marry a man who was unemployed. Some marriage and relationship experts say women still look towards their husband as the main provider and won't get hitched to someone without an income. Others claim women are being prudent and realize both partners must have a job to survive in these difficult economic times.


Regardless of the reason, the implications are pretty clear for the men out there. If you don't have the money, you won't get any honey. [Forbes and YourTango via Reuters]
