If a man is rich, getting married can be a headache. For one, the divorce rate is about 50%. Which means there is a 50% chance he'll lose 50% of his money and assets He can get a prenup, but not only does it undermine his faith in the marriage, there's usually a set amount of money he has to give her every month, or agree to giving up a certain percentage of his assets upon divorce (less than 50%). Second, while he might not have a problem getting girls, they all either A) want to get married and be set for life or B) be spoiled with nice gifts and use his credit card or C) both. He could always hide that he's rich, but most girls who are hot go for rich men. If he's ok with an average looking woman, then no problem. But most rich men do want a hot girlfriend or wife.
