A reply from Mukesh Ambani, owner of Reliance Group, India to a pretty girl seeking a rich husband.
A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:
Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?
I'm going to be honest of what I'm going to say here.
I'm 25 this year. I'm very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with 100 crore annual salary or above.
You might say that I'm greedy, but an annual salary 2 crore is considered only as middle class now days..
My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of 100 crore annual salary? Are you all married?
I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you?
Among those I've dated, the richest is 50 crore annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit.
If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west
of New York City Garden(?), 50 crore annual income is not enough.
I'm here humbly to ask a few questions:
1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2) Which age group should I target?
3) Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking? I've met a
few girls who don't have looks and are not interesting, but they are
able to marry rich guys.
4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)

A philosophical reply from Mukesh Ambani
Dear Ms. Pooja,
I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of
girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me
to analyse your situation as a professional investor.
income is more than 100 crore, which meets your requirement, so I hope
everyone believes that I'm not wasting time here.
From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.
Put the details aside, what you're trying to do is an exchange of
"beauty" and "money" : Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for
it, fair and square.
However, there's a deadly problem here,
your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good
reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you
can't be prettier year after year.
Hence from the viewpoint of
economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation
asset. It's not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation.
If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years
By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a "trading position". If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to
keep it for long term - same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It
might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any
assets with great depreciation value will be sold or "leased".
Anyone with over 100 crore annual income is not a fool; we would only
date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking
for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make
yourself to become a rich person with 100 crore annual income.This has
better chance than finding a rich fool.
Hope this reply helps.
