Would you still Date -or- Marry Him, if he made “Less Money than you?” on “Conversations Of A Sistah

March 30, 2016 by The ReadyWriter


Indepenent-woman-shaidysworldIn today’s society  women are high achievers, successful and financially secure. They’re buying homes and investing in property and basically holding their own. Women are no longer waiting on the dream of meeting a prince and living in his home with 2.5 children and the white picket fence. Today’s women are independently stable and self-sufficient.

The successful woman have choices because they no longer need to worry about some man supporting or taking care of them? However, if you’re a woman who is in the top 10% of earners and you INSIST that your man out earn you, then you’ve now eliminated 90% of the dating population. And that’s before you’ve considered kindness, compatibility, attraction, values, height, weight, age, humor, children, etc. Doesn’t that sound like a self-defeating edict? Sure does.

Tune-in tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST on Conversations Of A Sistah” via Blog Talk Radio as I weigh in on the subject “Should Women date -or- Marry a man who makes LESS money than she does?”

I will be taking calls in the studio at 1-917-889-7872, just press “1” to speak with the operator.

    Well for me, I don’t think he has to have more money than me for us to build a life together. But he has to have something that is foundational to our success as a couple.

    If your man makes less, then that means you will downsize on your lifestyle. I’m speaking from experience. Unless he has his own business with the potential to grow then NO ladies, get the man who is on your level financially. #dontjudgeme

    It would be so fucked up if she did make more money than me and I was madly in love with her and she couldn’t wrap her head around ‘US’ and OUR FUTURE because of our salary differences. Depending on how she’s handle it would be a wake-up call for me and that’s real talk….

      Point,
      Money is one of the leading causes of trouble in relationships. Try not to ever let money get in the way of how you feel about a person. At the end of the day it does not matter how much money we have if we do not have love. 🙂
