Have we had a forum topic on WAGs yet? For those who are unfamiliar with the term, WAGs are the wives and girlfriends of sports stars.

http://www.guardian.co.uk...

Anyway, I just wanted to know why, when you ask a teenage boy what he wants to do when he grows up he will often say "a footballer" or "a racing driver" yet when you ask a teenage girl the same question they often reply "I want to marry a footballer" or "I want to marry a racing driver"?

Doesn't this demonstrate a lack of ambition? Why don't girls want to be successful in their own right?

The ones with no talent or ambition (or daddy issues) will most likely answer like this. But the majority of girls do not (or should not) answer like this. I would NEVER want to marry a footballer or racing driver. I'm way too independent for that.
I'm not back. This idiot just upset me which made me stop lurking.

Yeah, I kind of guessed this wouldn't be the sort of site wannabe WAGs would frequent!
