From the desk of Hunter Blackwell:
When hunting for a wife, it helps to have many zeros in your bank account. I suppose
for those less financially fortunate they could go through the painstaking task of
endless dating and listening to the droning conversation of a woman going on about
her biological ticking clock. For my fellow billionaires, however... hunting for a
woman to take your last name is a simple as finding a service that specializes in
such a contract. It is simply a contract. A word of advice, however. Always go in
lowâ€¦ the woman you pick may try to get away and an added zero might just stop her
from taking that first step out the door. A full-proof prenuptial agreement will
keep said woman from taking more when she leaves. A stealth lawyer with a locked lip
In the case of a woman who denies your contractual wifely pursuits, I suggest a good
private investigator. I have yet to find anyone without dirt in their past. Once you
find that dirt I suggest you place yourself on the chessboard with two moves in your
pocket. Youâ€™re going to use the dirt you find to have your contractual wife
accepting your indecent proposal. This isnâ€™t for the faint of heart. Blackmail is
such a nasty word, but since this conversation is just us men, letâ€™s cut the
bullshit. Women, especially intelligent, attractive women, are bound to push back
when you toss their past skeletons up in their face.
Now here is the best advice I can offer, gentlemen. Pick your temporary wife wisely.
She is not an employee, nor is she someone you should consider beddable. Iâ€™m here to
tell you, as much as I attempted to avoid Gabiâ€™s bedâ€¦the painstaking cold showers,
and restless nights finally added up and I caved. And when you find yourself
sleeping with your attractive, intelligent wife who whittles away at your resolve to
reclaim your bachelor status one day, you might find yourself on that slippery slope
of love and forever.
When you find yourself in love, my friendsâ€¦all those cards you thought you held are
no longer in your hands. They are in hers.
