We all know in today’s society money is a huge factor in most relationships, it creates as well as tears them apart. Besides wanting nice things materialistically a lot of people stay in bad relationships because they have a ‘sponsor’ to allow the lifestyle that keeps them comfortable. A friend has a contender that she simply is not attracted too, is a bit judgmental, and can be controlling but for now she stays with him, although she knows she will never be happy. Her reasoning, he makes close to $500,000 yearly,and she’s in law school. Anyone that has ever gone through or considering school knows just how expensive it can be and the cost of that degree will have the morals and standards of many blurred.
Years ago it was sensible and fitting for a woman to find a provider but not with all these ‘independent women’ the idea of finding a mate that can take care of you has fallen taboo. In today’s society when we think gold digger, its more along the lines of a sugar daddy or cougar situation. Fact of the matter is you cant dig without someone providing the opportunity to be dug. Most people well off are aware of the reason you come sniffing around. Often you’ll hear ‘money can’t buy you happiness’, how many people do you know that frown on a jet ski? With the way things are in today’s society do you feel its wrong to make yourself secure with someone that can financially keep you?
Fact of the matter is now, yes men, your earning potential and current income is indeed a factor. If something life changing happens you need re-assurance you’ll be taken care of. Women look for stability and insurance you can provide her with a happy lifestle. Now before you jump on me guys- no Im not saying you NEED money to be happy, but, I say this all the time, as great as it is to marry for love, love will not feed you or pay the bills. You want a partner that can support you, and well, finances are a part of that support.
