I get hypergamy and I get why women shut down with bad men. But what I don't get is why women shit test and shut down with good men, especially when they don't have another man in the wings.
I've seen this several times in real life. Decent man has been married for a while. Stays in shape, good looking, runs a tight ship. His wife gets harpy and bitchy. Nothing is good enough for her.
But when you look at her, she isn't anything special. She doesn't take care of herself, so she isn't really attractive. Their sex life sucks. She doesn't contribute a lot to the family. And yet she shit tests and complains about everything.
The man eventually gets tired of it and dumps her ass. I know a friend of a friend like this right now.
Hypergamy states that a woman ends up with the best man she can catch. But a woman like this often never catches another man OR catches a man that isn't as good as the one she had. Her shit testing and complaining got her a worse man.
How does hypergamy explain this ?
