Wow since reading this book I'm now seeing that women are not such victims as we were told (By Mr. R.). Yes society puts a lot of pressure on women to look good, buy cosmetics, makeup, fashion and etc...
However it's usually the sucker husband who ends up paying for all that stuff and her lifestyle. If she is young and not married yet, it's usually her father who pays for his little girl's lifestyle.
Men on the other hand don't feel the need to buy so much fashion and don't buy cosmetics and makeup (unless they are gay
A man (generally speaking) can be happy without expensive clothing or a new sport car while women's happiness comes mostly from materialistic things (generally speaking again).
So who is really 'the victim' here?
This reminds me of something. Remember Kim Kardashian?
Her Ex-Husband Damon Thomas said:
Damon says, he was the one who filed for divorce first. And he did it because Kim was cheating on him with “multiple guys.” Kim has denied this claim.

Still, Kim managed to lure Damon back into the relationship for a brief time, during which, he says, she convinced him to finance extravagant shopping sprees and extensive plastic surgery — including a boob job and liposuction. “She wanted to have that lifestyle,” he explains. “She wanted to be what she ultimately became.” And Damon was willing to finance it — until he saw her on the cover of a magazine on a date with Jennifer Lopez’s ex, Cris Judd.
“I saw my wife with another man, wearing the clothes that we had just bought after her lipo,” he says. “It was not something as a husband you ever wanted to see.”
