I'm not sure who that last post was directed towards. I would say there are probably more women in the USA than any other country fixated with wealth and gold-digging, it's our national hobby. The difference is many do it by "marrying rich." While prostitution is illegal in the US, there's a thin line between "taking care of someone" (buying them jewelry, cars, clothing, vacations) and paying them directly for sex. People might talk themselves into believing that it's "love" but it's more about economic security, stability and protection. Any country where this is poverty, these desires for wealth will be exacerbated and the desire to get ahead by any means necessary will be even more evident.
