Tradition has it that single men show single women their financial success and their willingness to disperse it by showering it on them. The thought is that since being a mother with kids will take lots of resources, one needs to demonstrate something here. Furthermore, women in their hot years are can demand such treatment, as they or the commodity in short supply that many are after.
So women who work at it can obtain lots of free stuff, meals, drinks, travel, automobiles, cash, whatnot. It must be very intoxicating. It also might ease her work requirements, with an easy low paying job being all that she needs.
But what of it? Where might it lead? It should be obvious where this might go; to creating a sense of entitlement. They obtain free stuff because of who they are; others do not (pretty much everybody else, including all men). Therefore they are special, and deserve it. At least that is how the simple rationalization would come off. In a sense, this not a rationalization, it is correct. But the shelf life is not long, and nobody gets to play the game forever. As for those who develop a fine sense of entitlement, more often than not the future is unhappy.
So what do we have here? Men attempting to demonstrate fiscal fitness being exploited by women. In the bad old days, when time was short and resources few, women would never been able to exploit this situation for a decade (or more) of their life. So we have a very un-natural situation that leads to damaged women, damaged future marriages, and damaged children
