Is the Trophy Wife Inevitable?

Reddit View
June 1, 2018

One of the foundations of MRP is working to increase SMV so as to be above that of your wife's. In general, Men's SMV will increase over time as their career progresses (as long as they stay in good shape both mentally and physically) and a woman's will decrease as her beauty fades. When the point is reached where the SMVs "cross" doesn't that inevitably lead to the man being dissatisfied?

For those of you who have reached this point (and if you say that your SMV has always been higher than your wife's, sucks for you) how do you deal with this imbalance in the other direction? Isn't the temptation to "trade in" for a newer model constant?

I'm where you describe, though my wife is as fit as possible for her age.

Isn't the temptation to "trade in" for a newer model constant?

I'm surrounded by true 9's and 10's - I see them literally every day - a perk if you will of where I'm located.

What balances the temptation to trade-in are (1) the years of shared experience, (2) the intimacy we share, (3) the family we have together, and (4) the vision we're both on a mission to achieve.

Edit: Besides, what does the "trophy" really get you? Same shit, different body most likely.

How old are you and your wife ?

How long have you been together ?

How good is your life together ?

How much value is she adding to your life ?

I'm at the upper end of Rollo's theorized maximum SMV, she's a handful of years younger, we've been together over a decade, life is good though calamity is always one step behind, and she adds enough value.

I own how good it can all be and - since doing so - it has all gotten better.

My bigger head agrees with everything you've written here.

For every hot girl out there, there is some guy who is sick of her shit. Keep that in mind.

I have no desire to “trade in”. As I get older I have less and less patience for the bullshit that hot 20-something women bring to the table. They are strictly for some fun on the side, since it’s always great to bang young, fit and firm women.

I’m in an open relationship for this very reason. When I met my current LTR, I was sleeping with four different women. But I wasn’t happy about it, oddly enough. Fun at first, but you start to feel guilty when they are yearning for more, and you know it’s never going to work. They were all infatuated with me, and I would occasionally try to be monogamous, but it would never hold.

Current LTR has friends in open relationships, she introduced me to the concept, and I realized it had potential WITH the right woman. We’ve had 3-4 threesomes with her friends, and I had a second girlfriend for about 4 months. She’s been with one other guy, just one time.

She’s tried going out with other guys, but they just bore the shit out of her, and don’t give her the tingles.

To clarify, my SMV is 8, hers is 6-7. Is this a factor in her not caring about sleeping with other guys? Absolutely. Could I do better than her? Absolutely, and she knows it. But it’s good for now, and she adds value to my life. And cleans me off with her mouth when I come home from spending time with other girls. 👍🏻

What, if anything, do you feel you have given up in exchange for the freedom of an open relationship?

[–]Rian_StoneMod / Red Beret2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah, life just decides for you man.

How do you leave a life without agency and find yourself in a better life without agency?

[–]Reach180Red Beret3 points4 points  (4 children) | Copy

What you're describing sounds a lot like hypergamy. Female troll who doesn't understand the male brain? Or blue pill man who thinks like a chick?

I've found something that I like 'enough' and I'm pretty good with it.

If you're not, that's fine too. Would advise not making any trophy your wife in that case.

I admire your ability to settle. I say this with 100% genuineness. I wish the temptation of strange would leave me.

[–]justpickanyusernameRed Beret2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

There's always castration...

[–]ReddJiveRed Beret3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Short answer. Depends on the man.

Longer answer: Everything is temporary

Your woman should be of value. No matter how long you want to keep her around. Sexually, socially, and unconditionally. She must provide value to your life and mission As years go on men will remember these things above all else.

We are hard wired to look upon a woman in her old age and if she has been there; Been of value and been supportive, sexually available, a girlfriend, a wife, a mother, and not been a boat anchor. we will remember as she was.

Beauty fades, so unless you accept a life of disposable people that will come and go throughout when you have grown old you will look at her and remember those things.

Men seek value in their lives.

“Isn't the temptation to "trade in" for a newer model constant?”

Yes. Welcome to the world of being a high value man. It’s a great problem to have.

[–]thunderbeyond2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Especially if:

isn't the -(temptation)- ability to trade in for a newer model constant?

High value men have options. Whether you take them or not is wholly up to you.

[–]palmorwrist[S] -1 points0 points  (10 children) | Copy

In one sense yes, but in another it can drive a man crazy, especially if one's moral imperative is to remain faithful. I just hope my T-levels drop as I age to quell the "drive" for strange.

[–]mindfulbutgutlessRed Beret3 points4 points  (2 children) | Copy


You want your T level to drop?

I do not object to this comment.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
