I'm discussing why women tend to want a man with more resources.
Like it or not we still have our monkey brains and all the impulses they give us. Culture changes which is why we aren't still having arranged marriages for the most part in modern society, but evolution, the mechanism that has primed women to look for a strong provider in a male, simply doesn't work the same way that culture does. It takes thousands, tens of thousands of years or more in order to change those embarrassing little facts.
But hey, ATS, home of raging misogyny, probably doesn't want to think about that, and just wants to rage about how unfair women are.
Why women prefer weaker men
Early humans became monogomous because women evolved to prefer reliable providers over macho alpha males, a study has found.
While physically imposing men hold a certain appeal, women long ago evolved to value qualities like loyalty and generosity over bulging muscles and a strong jawline.
This is because men who lacked the ability to compete physically with their peers compensated by providing better for their spouses in order to buy their affection, researchers said.
The rise of the Beta male began at an early stage of human evolution when our ancestors lived in large social groups where the most dominant men had access to the most women.

I mean.....there's sort of been a few studies about the biological preference women have for men they see as better providers.
Just because you may be ignorant of something doesn't mean that it's not well known.
