Too close for comfort... seriously.
Me: Shit, I want to go into public interest, but I have ginormous loans. If IBR goes away, I am screwed.
Well meaning friend: I have the perfect solution for you!
Me: You do?
Well meaning friend: Yes! Plenty of Fordham grads go into biglaw, even ITE. Just marry one of your classmates and prosper!
I can assure you that this conversation actually happened. (In fact, I heard this from several people.) I didn't go on a profanity bender, but I definitely let the speaker know that I was not about to spend $225k to become someone's trophy wife. I do have several female friends who would jump at such an opportunity, unfortunately. I'm sure you were joking, but it definitely happens.
I don't see your objection to this. I'd love to be a trophy husband.
Seriously, biglaw-bound TLS chicks. Just continue to buy me pretty things and I'll cook and clean and take care of the babies!
