…was the existence of things like this, reported in The Hill, in the northern half of the state: ‘Trophy wives in waiting’:

One local news personality, said a Madison [Club] higher-up, “calls us trophy wives in training.” She laughs, tucking a strawberry-blond lock behind her ear. “I would be the ultimate trophy wife!”

Was there some gigantic change in cultural norms when I wasn’t looking?
