Viewers tuned in in droves to watch Rachel’s heartbreaking decision to break up with finalist Peter Kraus — who wasn’t ready for an engagement – in favor of Miami chiropractor Bryan Abasolo, who was prepared to ask her to marry him.

As always, highly successful women should understand that YES, you can get a man to marry you. YOU HAVE MONEY, and men don’t have to provide for you. Therefore being with you is of financial benefit to them.   This is why femininity is important so that a high value woman can align with a high value man who provides, and doesn’t need her money. When HE marries her it’s because he truly wants to be with her, not due to financial benefits.
