Tough Times For Gold-Diggers

Gold-diggers don’t have it easy these days. Yvette Penichet, a 43-year-old divorcée, probably thought she was going to be rolling in cash after a few years of caring for Alfred Kreisler, a 93-year-old lawyer with $22-million in assets who Yvette married last October. But less than six months into their marriage, a judge deemed Alfred unable to manage his responsibilities as a husband after three mental health professionals confirmed that Alfred didn’t have the mental capacity to manage his own affairs or get married. At one point during their short marriage Yvette tried to withdraw $400,097.53 for a Rolls-Royce but the bank wouldn’t let her withdraw the money. It’s comforting to know that society is looking out for rich, old men. [AHN] Keep reading »

The Daily Squeeze: Love Leave, Women Working Out, And Gray Hair

  • Next week, the Finnish Parliament will discuss whether to grant working adults one week of “love leave” a year. This proposal is aimed at helping to reduce the number of divorces (half of all Finnish marriages end in divorce — like the U.S.!) and the number of people suffering from depression. Research there has shown that Finns want more time with loved ones than higher wages. [Reuters]

  • A 50-year-old writer posted a profile on Match.com with a photo of herself with gray hair. She monitored the number of “winks” and e-mails she received, and then she removed that profile and put up the same profile three months later with a different photo, this one of her with brown hair. She repeated this experiment in different geographic areas. All three times she received more “winks” with her gray-haired picture than the one that showed her with brown hair. We have no idea what this means for those of us under 50, but we might have to keep this in mind and skip the hair dye in a few years. [More]
