Every woman’s secret wish is to marry a millionaire. If he is a billionaire, even better! Unfortunately there are not enough billionaire bachelors out there for everyone. Here are some of the world’s luckiest women who have somehow landed up with very wealthy husbands.
You Have To Have the Perfect Body
Billionaire Bachelors are allowed to be picky when it comes to choosing a bride. Jeffrey Soffer was just that. He was not going to settle for anything less than a supermodel. And along came Elle. The gorgeous Elle Macpherson tied the knot in August last year. Her new husband is a 43-year-old real estate developer and owner of a property firm called Turnberry Associates. Soffer’s net worth is $1 billion.
Invest in a Model
Paul Tudor Jones’s net worth stands at $4.3 billion. He is the founder of Tudor Investment Corporation and is married to the Australian Sonia Klein, a former supermodel. They met in New York in 1986 when Sonia was pursuing her modelling career.
Swimming With the Big Fish
Former Olympic swimmer, Charlene Wittstock (now known as Charlene, Princess of Monaco), married Albert II, Prince of Monaco in 2011. Charlene lived a very humble life growing up in South Africa. She met Prince Albert in 2000 and started dating him publicly in 2006. Albert II, Prince of Monaco is worth $1 billion.
Irina Snags “The Hard Man of Russia”
Irina Viner is the wife of Russian business magnate and billionaire Alisher Usmanov., also known as “the hard man of Russia”. He is the world’s 34th richest person who has an estimated net worth of $17.6 billion. The Jewish Irina and the Muslim Alisher met at a gym in Tashkent. Irina was coaching rhythmic gymnasts (many of whom went on to be Olympic medallists) and Alisher was practising his fencing. They married in 1992.
The Iron Woman
Susan Dell is a keen athlete who has competed in a number of Iron Man triathlons. She is married to Michael Dell, the computer magnate who is worth &17.5 billlion.
Brains is Better
Tamiko Bolton, a 42 year old registered pharmacist, is a University of Utah graduate. She also obtained a MBA from the University of Miami. Was George Soros attracted to the fact that she was an educated woman? The 83 year old billionaire investor (founder of Soros Fund Management) has been married twice before. Will his knot with Tamiko stay tied? Only time will tell. Soros has a net worth $23 billion.
Something to Write Home About
Mackenzie Bezos is the lucky lady who is married to Jeff Bezos, the co-founder of Amazon.com. Jeff has a net worth of $32 billion. Instead of shopping and drinking tea all day, Mackenzie, the Princeton University graduate, writes novels, and is very successful at it too!
Priscilla the Pediatrician
Priscilla Chan married Mark Zuckerberg in 2012, just before she graduated from med school. The two met at a frat party while they were standing in a queue to use the bathroom. His net worth is $28.5 billion, but she has not let this money get to her head, and enjoys a conservative and simple lifestyle.
Google Lucy Southworth... What a Belter
This gorgeous woman is married to Larry Page, the co-founder of Google, who is worth $32.3 billion. She happens to be a doctoral student at the University of Stanford.
The Richest Wife in the World
Melinda Gates obtained her degree in computer science and ergonomics from Duke University, and then her MBA from Duke’s Fuqua School of Business. She married the richest man in the world in 1994.
So if you are thinking of snagging a billionaire husband, look at the statistics. If you are model material, you stand a chance. If you are a famous athlete, your chances are even bigger. And if you have a few degrees behind your name, you are in high demand!
