Good article. Why would a high-achieving male be interested in someone less capable or ambitious than he? Lack of self-confidence? Desire for role differentiation (someone to nuture children and manage the home front)? Comparative advantage (economic division of labor theory that underlies trade; each person/economic actor should concentrate on producing those goods and services in which he/she is most efficient)?
And what is a black Amex? American Express cards are green, aren't they?
Awww, the innocence of non-New-Yorkers.
