The quote “A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man” by Lana Turner is commenting on traditional gender roles and relationship dynamics of the time period when Turner lived (1920s-2000s). It suggests that for a man, financial success was defined by his ability to be the primary breadwinner and out-earn his spouse.

Meanwhile, for a woman success meant securing a husband who was able to be the financially supporting partner. While reflecting the social norms of the past, the quote also shows that even decades ago, some saw women’s success and happiness as tied to finding a partner to provide economic security, rather than being financially independent in their own right.

By today’s standards, most would view true gender equality and individual success as being able to achieve one’s goals regardless of marital status or another person’s income.
