  • Are women more materialistic than men ?

    :salams,

    I've been to many Islamic talks and whenever the topic comes to wealth , simple living or greed, the speaker specifically addresses the sisters.

    Is it true that no matter how much a woman has , she still desires more clothes , more shoes, more accessories, more things, in short, more of everything.?

    Why are women less likely to be content compared to men ? Why do they covet for more & more ?

    Do you think, women are natually more materialistic than men ?

    Yes they are, because they have weak hearts.

          That would be generalizing. I would say they are both equally materialistic and it also depends highly on the individual.

          For instance, women tend to love their jewelry and clothes and so forth. A lot of guys collect gadgets, like the newest electronics or they have to have the latest sports car on the market.

          But then again you can't paint EVERYONE with the same brush. It's highly subjective.
          Give me a clear vision, that I may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless I stand for something, I will fall for anything.

                Maybe women just have a better idea of what they want?

                I know I am very basic. Food, sleep, clean clothes. Everything else is bonus.

                  No, not all of women are so. And not all of the men are less materalistic than women. There is no point in generalising two groups of people which need each other and assist each other.

                  Allah knows what really is in our hearts.

                  Be a good example yourself and it's one of the best means of daw'ah.

                        I wonder what the record time is for a sister to jump into defence of her gender when a generalisation is made? :)

                        But being serious, this is a general discussion so we would speak in general terms and hopefully people will have the intelligence to realise that its not to be taken as tarring all with the same brush. That's not directed at Kubs just a general statement.

                        I have learned that neither man nor woman is content with their lot in life. No matter what blessings man receives he always wants more. That includes men and women.

                        Do you think, women are natually more materialistic than men ?
                        It is easy to see it that way; that women are more materialistic than men. But Kubs made a good point that both men and women covet worldly things which I have added my two cents to.

                        Men can sometimes see women as materialistic when we must interact usually for the sake of marriage. Women naturally need security and are attracted to it (attracted to men who can provide wealth and security). This is only a natural instinct as it is we men that are expected to be the providers and protectors of women. So you could say it is a woman's right to be materialistic in some cases. As long as her expectations don't go beyond the ridiculous.

                        For example, would I marry a woman who was penniless? Yes I would, as generally speaking her wealth is no factor for me. But would the same woman marry me if I were penniless? Almost certainly not for obvious reasons. Is that perfectly understandable? Of course it is.

                              Yeah and I was only joking. Thought that was evident. Sheesh.

                              EDIT: Actually come to think of it I am a little curious. If I was betting man (and I'm not) I would say 60 seconds. It's like you women have a sixth sense for when its happening.
