What planet are you living on? Every woman I know -- married or single -- has a job.

Moreover, this a one of the riskiest life plans a woman can have. You open yourself up to mistreatment and abuse from your partner, since you can't leave because you need someone to take care of you financially. Also, the extremely wealthy tend to marry within their own class. And the moderately wealthy are vulnerable. We've seen what the economic crisis and downsizing has done to even executive-level jobs. If a woman doesn't have the skills to earn her own money and be independent, that is a very sad and scary existence these days.
It is not what he was trying to say. He was saying that women usually look for man with a higher status, which is one of the universal attraction traits women look for in a man. Of course she can have a decent job but the man should be still a bit "higher" than her.

Because of that, women with lots of power have it extremely difficult to find a partner. So, having a super job can also be a disadvantage for women. Since women have gained so much power in western countries, the rate of marriage and failed relationships has exploded.
