Gold Diggers of course come in many colors and temperaments, ranging from kind and coddling to bossy or even lazy.

Nor does she nag her new husband to death in a grim attempt to hold on to her money bag. No. She takes that access to wealth and parlays it into a fortune of her own, so she can keep or leave the man at her bidding.
