This is the second in the State Of The Unions series.
As discussed in the previous post, most modern women go for the tingles. This is what strikes fourteen year old girls first, providing them with their first thrills, ones that they never forget and try to replicate for the rest of their lives. With time, women come to appreciate resources and social standing with respect to men also. Resources are obviously useful, with social standing being desired for the luxury of rubbing their frenemies faces with respect to their relative rank.
Also desired would be “fun”. The man is expected to be able to make her laugh, and drive her happiness in general. The requirement is useful because it provides the justification for whatever she does (cheating, divorce) after she decides that she is unhappy.
As mentioned in the previous post, women’s built-in hypergamy drive them to want only the very best in men. Furthermore, modern women are taught that they are all special snowflakes, feeding the hypergamy beast. They know that they deserve the very best because they are the very best.
Almost all men will come up short of these expectations. Most will come up short by a wide margin. Still, most of these women will marry. They will feel cheated. As to who cheated them, it is not clear. Probably they blame the Evil Patriarchy somehow.
Short answer as to what women want — they want their expectations to be met.
