Human minds are weird. OP, no one can change how you feel. An unexamined life is not worth living. Based on your current thought process you will have to marry someone who's on partner track. As whoever you marry , you will continue to feel the same, till one day you will stop worrying about partner track money and will think about something more simpler. Till that day comes try to find your equal. And definitely you shud cut lose her. Let her find some genuine and true love. Many will be happy and lucky to have her.

If you are worried about divorce and her taking half your assets, you are a complete dick. I'm sorry for saying it but a marriage is supposed to be about unity and whole, not having to worry about who is winning. It sucks to be in her position and I feel bad for her. Before filing for divorce, go see a therapist and talk this out. Bc if she really loves, she will support you along the way, that's what women do! Also, it is okay to be focused on your career, but remember your family always comes first. Answer yourself this: Who am I without my job. If you can't answer that, you are not living enough. I promise you that if you give this a good thought, and understand how much your wife loves and supports, it will make you feel even more confident about your professional career. Also, NEVER TAKE YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER FOR GRANTED!

You probably should. You clearly don't love her so let her go find happiness while she's still young.

If you are so concerned about money let the poor girl go.

Wow, that's a really negative way to look at your marriage. Sounds like you are married to your job and not your wife. Sad.

If she's getting wrinkles its time to trade it in for a younger model

God I hope this is a troll or that EY has higher standards for is partners.

OP will probably get divorced many times over with this attitude, so it really doesn't matter when she/they get half.

Troll. Has to be a troll. Can't imagine someone being so immature

I don't understand what wanting to make partner has to do with it? Either you love your wife or you don't.

I'm assuming this is a troll post. But damn this is cold.
If you are concerned with her taking half in a divorce you are already setting yourself up for it to happen
