Are you a woman?
Actually, Alice Eagly's theory is spot on. Several recent polls and studies prove high-status women are behaving exactly like men; that is, once they have the money and the social security, they no longer crave for it on their partner but rather, they'd chose a much younger, handsome man which demonstrates it's socio-cultural aspects the ones trumping biology -not the other way around. For what it's worth, I can confirm this is the rule where I live. Just take a look around.
We are what society allows us to be and we certainly accommodate quite fast to its relevant changes. For God's sake, it was patriarchal society which dictated women's old roles through history, certainly not biology despite the emphasis on it.
