btw, what is little T&A?
That does not sound like the sentiment of a guy that is meant to be a leader?
How is he to achieve anything? How would anyone achieve anything if they thought that way? As a woman I can say it would be a lot easier to rely on other aspects to get ahead? Minus my dignity, nevertheless much easier? And this is almost always an available option to most women? But in the end most women are unhappy with that situation, no matter how empty headed or distitude they are?
Also I think men are very disappointed in the end that they do not have someone to share an intelligent conversation with, or that they can trust to share advice and rely on at the end of the day? Basically a woman he can respect and be proud of
that deserves the admiration
of her husband and people at large? Is that such a bad thing?
No woman can be very supportive if she is not capable of understanding or even recognizing issues that might cause her husband stress? An intelligent women would have the intuition to even see it coming? (hence the conversation above). It doesn't make a difference how dumb and intellectually lazy some women are, they all will tire quickly of waiting at the door with their husbands slippers, like a dog waiting for his master to return?
Respect begets respect? If men are dismissive towards women, so will the woman be dismissive of the man? Then it really is nothing more than a business deal no matter how hard they try to justify it
in their mind?
Some people I guess are happy with medocrity in life? Some people prefer to be victims? Some people seem afraid that they might just achieve a level of happiness where they would be forced to give up old ideas they like to cling to? If people didn't have hope and dreams, nothing would ever happen in the world? Humanity would never evolve? Sometimes you have to go out on a limb?
And these are the men and women that are always remembered in history? In the end it's people who have had the courage
to do the thing that doesn't come easy? Then as you say there are just those people "that go with the flow..." Albert could do that? But what a wasted opportunity for someone who was handed the position and resources he has been handed, "to just go with the flow..." It's a good thing the monarchs before him strived a little harder, I hope he has the faith in himself and trust he will hit his own stride!
I agree he may be trying too hard, maybe he should relax a little and take some time out from women in general, and concentrate on himself, look after his health, enjoy the things he enjoys doing, and spend more time on all the things he would like to acheive? Maybe one day he will look up and find himself in a new pond with better prospects than he has ever had in the past and he might fnd someone who will be a refreshing asset to both himself and Monaco? Is that such a bad thing? My intuition
says he should hang in there!
I guess there's nothing wrong with a little T&A if it included a little B&C (Brains and class)

Well, perhaps it is just my own perspective?
But I believe we are meant to grow and evolve through our lifetime? One way that happens is from the people we meet and interact with in the world? Personally I like to surround myself with people I admire and hope I can learn something from them (it need not always be intellectually), sometimes they are even hard lessons, but if you take the time to see what you can learn from a situation, sometimes you learn something about yourself that you had failed to recognize before? Because if you don't learn the hard lessons in life that you are meant to learn? They will return over and over, larger and larger? So a little reflection can go along way?
Wasn't it Einstein that said the definition of insanity was doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result?
As far as the women (girls) Albert is attracted to, he seems to have seeked them all out on looks alone before even meeting them or having any conversation with them? It would seem he does not look very deep and his admiration for women only goes so far, it appears
he has a superficial and shallow idea of what a woman is or should be and so he does not look for a partner that will help in grow in life, or grow with him? And this usually is a very common reason for divorce? Especially with the age difference of his current relationship, and Charlene seems to be underdeveloped for her own age at that? It does make one wonder?
If a woman has failed to empower herself before she marries, she will eventually feel trapped, which usually results with the man becoming unhappy when she becomes her own person, even if she is intellectually challenged? Women often out grow their husbands as well, and become unhappy when the staus quo of the realtionship that they once were willing to compromise themselves for, do not fulfill them anymore? This is why so many women wait to get married now? You cannot bring something to a realtionship if you are bereft of the things inside yourself that nurture your own soul? Well, that is my perspective anyway?
Also I really admire people that are wise with experience that often comes with age, I often find myself reaching for the books of these people. Maybe to explain myself better Richard Branson and Peter Gabriel have put a group of people together both men and women known as The Elders? People like Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Jimmy Carter. Muhammed Yunis. Graca Machel, Ela Bhatt, Mary Robinson...and many more? So when you say a man at 50 has no need to grow? I find that disappointing? I am not always high minded or serious all of the time, I am a great hedonist myself and enjoy the pleasures in life!
But as a Libra, I cannot help but try to find balance in life?
