I figured this is a worth a share especially to the fellas with assets and businesses they hope to pass on.
I know this dude in his 70s. He's been a very successful entrepreneur, sitting on millions with dozens of business and hundreds of properties. Back in the day he got himself the prettiest wife his money would buy and she bore him 4 handsome sons that are all adults now. He's ready to retire and he thought his legacy secure, however, his sons are all dumb as shit.
When you're making people, your children are usually on a continuum between you and your partner. All of his children ended up on the lower scale of intelligence like their mother. He didn't need her to actually be useful because he just used his money to cover for her shortcomings. Try as he might, his sons can't do even the most basic functions like keep up with paying the bills of various businesses. Like their mother, their only talent is being pretty. He is watching everything he built fall apart at the hands of his well meaning but below average intelligence sons.
I know in the west, men don't have a tradition of seeking smart women to partner with but if you are like this guy with all this legacy you are hoping to build, don't make his mistake.
If you would be upset with the children turning out like your partner instead of you, you should not mate with that person. Mate choice is important.
That is all.
