A wife who is obviously too hot for your ass, but she is with you because you are rich or something.

Think Anna Nicole Smith (not fat version) marrying that oil tycoon.

Think Ivana Trump.

Think of any sub-standard male marrying a girl with a model's face and figure for no reason other than she's hot.

That's a trophy wife.

So if I start dating Natalie Portman, would I be a trophy boyfriend or would she be my trophy girlfriend?

Leave the keyboard and mouse, get up and leave the room. Go out and date women.

Neither, it would be a drug induced halucination... ;)

Another example... look at Nick whashisname... no way he's with Jessica Simpson because she's intelligent with a great personality... :disgust:

He's with her cuz she's hot. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

That Nick Lachey guy would be nothing if he didn't have Jessica Simpson. He would end up like Justin Guarini.

Here's how it was described to me.

You get out of college, marry your sweetheart and have a bunch of kids. You both work hard, watch your pennies and you climb up the corporate ladder. At 40, you're making a lot of money and you have some presige, but your wife is 40 too and after a lifetime of kids, housework, etc she doesn't look so good to you anymore. Everything about her reminds you (and your associates) that you're just another suburban family slob, and not the dynamic, dominant corporate deal-maker you now see yourself as. So you dump her and your now-teenage kids, and marry a 28-year-old "Ally McBeal" type who actually does see you as a powerful mover-and-shaker Alpha male, and not the desperate, paunchy, shallow old bore you've really become. THAT's a trophy wife.

Male = 45+, successful/wealthy, and previously divorced wife of same age
Female = ~25 and HOT, but lacking in any intelligence or financial contribution to the marriage

You could also call it a Mid-Life Crisis divorce/marriage

no, that just sounds like a mid-life crisis. trophy wife is someone you don't necessarily love or even like, just some hot, usually younger, woman that you just use for show
