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


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.

  9. 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

    2. 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. 🙂

  17. I’m a nurse and my husband bounced because his salary couldn’t match mine. He allowed it to destroy what we meant to each other. so this is a real question for some honest discussion because believe it or not people, money can be touchy in relationships. so much so that they die off quick.

  18. sometimes if you try and match salary against salary you can miss out on a good thing. and at the end of the day money is a very important factor in a relationship but so is growing old rich and alone.
