Journalist Tara Winter Wilson, who recently wrote a newspaper article warning against the signs of Toxic Wife Syndrome, is angering many who say she is betraying feminism and is a misogynist by claiming women try to trap men who will pay their way.
She says signs of a toxic wife are large legal settlements; giving up kids to boarding school after outgrowing nannies; she demands a maid; housework, cooking is a no-no; and having to live in a large house in the country that makes the husband commute.
She said, "I have had feedback from readers around the world recognising the syndrome. In America, many people wrote in about their toxic wives." Although divorced, she says her children are "unbelievably sane, happy and confident."
