I wouldn't and the MAIN reason is that I don't want her family become a liability to me. Trust me I have seen first hand, and it breaks families.

I had a conversation with a friend last week about this subject and he told me I was too picky. He even said that he would marry a waitress; I told him I wouldn't and he looked at me as if I was crazy. I want to marry a woman who is independent and who would be more of an asset than liability. Now I'm not saying I want a Paris Hilton but I would prefer my wife at least be from a upper middle class background. There are pros and cons to marrying chicks from humble backgrounds but the cons outweigh the pros for me. When a lot of humble chicks get a taste for money, they become greedier than even some rich chicks. This is due to the fact that they grew up with nothing and now feel that they are deserve the money since they grew up poor (like most celebrity divorces when a rich man marries a poor woman, she leaves with half and starts flossing with the guy's money like she's the baddest bitch).

I know I'm going to get shit thrown at me for this but I feel that this is a legit topic especially since most of us on this board have aspirations to become Big Swinging Dicks someday. With that said, let's discuss.

    I date girls who are rich with drive, one was worth a fortune and her dream job was GS IB. That's my kind of girl, she interned at GS too.

    That sounds like the prefect woman.

    Dating only upper middle class is picky, imo

    I'd be cool with a chick as long as she has ambition and isn't content with some part time shit job all her life

  • Jose.Rey's picture

    It's not about their background, it's about their own desire for a career. Let the impoverished parents live off the state, it's not your problem.

    Just don't marry a girl who is looking to stay home and spend your money. By the way, the GS chick is probably looking to get knocked up by an MD and quit. Bitches hate working and that is why it's important to find one that will.

  • livingthedream86's picture

    Dude, don't be a dumbass...the older you get the more you'll realize you just want someone that will make you happy when you come home from a 100 week at the office. It doesn't really matter what they do. Obviously you don't want someone that will just be out spending all your money on diamonds and vacations while your at the office. Hopefully they will at least have a decent 40 hour/week job. But come on man, don't be an idiot.

  • ProdigyOfZen's picture

    Well I agree the guy is a little tasteless.

    My girls immediately family is quite wealthy, think middle wealthy in a foreign country. One of her family members married into one of the top 5 richest families in her country. The dad in that family is worth a cool 660 million. I found that out through wikipedia haha.

    Although I knew none of this the first year we were dating so it never factored in that she was wealthy.

    i ask you this...

    1. what do you bring to the table?
    2. rich or poor no one wants an idiot and you sound like one....

    power of the P will win everytime.. you say you would not marry a waitress but when that great looking waitress is making your toes curl you feel like you found a little slice of heaven.... you;re a kid so i will guess dont have a lot of exp with women... but end of the day.. you dont hold as many cards as you think you do.. most women dont give a crap about yout job or your pay.. as long as you can provide.. and thats not diamonds and pearls... its simple stuff.. trust me.. you think you are a great package but women get offers everyday from men for stuff simply for having a P... its true...

  • firefighter's picture

    OP i think what you're trying to avoid is gold diggers, not someone from a poor family. there are plenty of girls from humble backgrounds who don't care about money, and plenty of girls from rich backgrounds who do care about money. they don't go hand in hand.

  • MrJetSet's picture

    I feel that my taste in women is more reasonable most other than guys. There are some guys that date chicks ONLY if they look like supermodels. Others will NOT date a chick unless the chick went to the same ivy league school as them. All I'm asking for is a chick to come from a well to do family. I'm not saying poor chicks are bad, I'm just saying that I would prefer to date and potentially marry a chick who is independent and comes from a financially stable family. I don't want her dad's money nor her money. You can call it tasteless but it's not like I'm trying to wife a hooker. Monty09, I'm very hard working and I feel that I can bring a lot to the table. All of the women whom I've dealt with in the past were smart/driven and came from educated upper middle class families. You don't know me nor my personal experiences, so why judge me?

    I would totally marry a poor chick if she was awesome... definitely would need to cut her family out of the picture though

    What if she wants you to help her family out? IT IS GOING TO COME UP. You can't expect the chick to be living well with you while her family is still starving.

    A lot of people are misinterpreting my op. I have nothing against the less fortunate but I would like all of my hard work to go into my wife,kids,and my parents. I hear some of my friends complain about how their foreign parents send their paychecks to relatives in their home country. I hear talk about their parents paying for their nieces and nephews school fees. I sympathize with them because I am also in the same boat and it pisses me off. A lot of you guys don't understand since it's not the culture in the United States. But outside of it, especially in Africa, it's common custom for the family who makes it to America to send their paychecks back to their homeland. That's why I don't want to marry a chick from a less fortunate family. You can call me idiot or cunt but I actually want to have a healthy relationship with my wife and family without having to worry about taking care of her relatives.

  • leveredarb's picture

    Would never marry chick in very poorly paying profession(i.e. waitress), due to general gold digging worries.

    For same reason would never marry chick from incredibly poor background(unless has a very well paying job).

    All theories aside, chances are if you are from an upper middle - upper class background, those would be the general circles you hang around in anyway, hence where you would likely meet your potential wife.

    Also you will tend to get along much better with people from that same background, hence likelihood of oyu marrying someone from it is much higher, you will not get along with very poor chicks regardless, since they will have very different values/preferences from you.

    First and foremost, your logic unveils a blatant lack of experience with women and life in general. Your whole argument hinges on the logical fallacy that not having a resource (in this case money) makes people go ape shit once they are exposed to it. This couldn't be further from the truth. People (women especially) have a much harder time letting go of things they are used to. A rich woman will have a much harder time adjusting to poverty than a poor woman will adjusting to wealth.

    Most girls from lower class backgrounds will have to be exceptional in some way to even be exposed to an upper class stable of guys. Girls who have had to work their way up the ladder are far more appreciative of success and will generally have the ability to look positively and respectfully on your achievements than some daddy's girl who expects to be taken care of.

    The family argument also holds no weight. I can think of very few rich families I know that don't have at least a few designated fuck ups. On the other hand, most poorer families are not plagued by gun toting, crack dealing, three toothed maniac cousin fuckers.

    The bottom line in choosing a mate is always going to be the potential sustainability of a relationship, joint values and that undefinable spark which romance novelists bank on, yet can't explain for shit.

    You would be wise to gain a lot more experience with women before coming to these sort of hasty and (for you) potentially life ruining conclusions.

    What exactly is the power of P (sorry if this is a stupid question)?.

    As for the OP, I am from a relatively poor family (foreign) and can confirm the practice of sending money to parents back home (I plan to do that myself). I also plan to help out my spouse's parents (if I ever get married) if they need it. My dad did it all his life even though he didn't have much himself. I guess its a culture thing.

    Also, I sympathize with your concern. If you're working for the money, you should get to decide who to spend it on. However, I don't think that just because someone is from a less wealthy background, they will be after your money. "Poor" people (at least the one's I know from back home), have a certain amount of pride (especially about taking money from their rich son in law) and would never accept your money if they sense that you don't want to give it to them. Again, my experience is based entirely on people in my home town so take it for what its worth.

    Subtle trolling, +1 for you sir.

    I've dated women from extreme wealth and power, and also from the bad part of my hometown, and honestly it comes down to "Can I live with this person, for the rest of my life". I like the story of J. Rockefeller who sincerely loved the woman he married, and she's the one that helped him organize his life to become wealthy: she was not rich and therefore valued money. It really can go both ways.

    In all honesty, your picture shows a guy that was a bigger liability to HIMSELF than his wife's family......

  • Freshcut's picture

    You can tell pretty quickly whether a girl likes you for you or likes you for your money, and if you can't well then you need to spend more time around woman.

    I don't care so much about how much she makes but I would care about what she does. You can tell a lot about a person by what their job is:

    Waitress, secretary, cashier = I didn't do much in school, had little drive to make something of myself, hoping to just coast through life with an easy job.

    (not what I consider good qualities of a "marriage material" girl and is probably outside of the bedroom pretty boring)

    Owns her own business, lawyer, works IB = I at least tried some what in school, had at least some sort of idea about what I want in my life, had drive and the desire to make what I saw in my dreams happen, have enough passion in me to work through the difficulties of a more challenging job.

    (She more than likely is smarter, will be more fun, and will want to get out and do something with herself instead of just sitting around and living off you which in turn makes her WAY more interesting)

    Now of course if I'm just out for a good time well then I don't give two shits about what she does.

    What makes you think a woman would marry you to begin with? You obviously come from a bumblefuck nontarget family trying to sit at the big boys table.

  • JBGH's picture

    It is always easier to marry a woman who is of the same social status as you. If you come from a wealthy family, it is much easier to marry a woman who comes from a wealthy family - not necessarily a must, but if you have a lot of family money and marry someone whose parents are blue collar workers, there will be tension that will eventually rise on a lot of issues.

    It is a legitimate thought / issue if you come from a wealthy family - it seems like so many people on this website come from less fortunate back-rounds and get their panties all in a bunch every time an issue like this is brought up.

    Um, let me just say this as someone who comes from a humble background and, through my career progression, is now doing well enough for myself (and likes to help my family back home)...

    if you're married to a woman who's ready to live the good life with you while not giving a damn what happens to her family, you've married a true cunt.

    She's the same woman who, when you're old, incontinent, and half-demented, will leave you to rot in your diaper while running off with a young, hot stud...

    and, just so you know, it can happen just as easily with a woman who comes from a "good" family as it does with a poor woman.

    Thank you sofib09 and others for the mature responses instead of the immature name calling. I too was born from humble beginnings but my immigrant parents worked very hard to get to the top. As a result, I have been living upper middle class since my teenage years. I wouldn't want my wife to have a total disregard for my family's well being but I am also not looking for her to carry my weight. I personally would feel uncomfortable with my wife taking care of my family and I hope she would feel the same way about me taking care of her family (besides her parents). I never said I wanted to get with a rich but like I said I'm not to comfortable getting with a poorer chick either simply for the fact that I'm not sure if she is attracted to me as a person or my money. The best balance for me would be chick from an upper middle class background. That way she will know the value of money and hard work from being raised in a decent household and I would not have to worry about her getting too greedy with money since she would be somewhat used to it.

You will ask your wealthy wife for help, right? How would you feel if she tells you she is not interested in helping your parents because they are not her responsibility..... Just using your logic here....

    Um, let me just say this as someone who comes from a humble background and, through my career progression, is now doing well enough for myself (and likes to help my family back home)...

    if you're married to a woman who's ready to live the good life with you while not giving a damn what happens to her family, you've married a true cunt.

    She's the same woman who, when you're old, incontinent, and half-demented, will leave you to rot in your diaper while running off with a young, hot stud...

    and, just so you know, it can happen just as easily with a woman who comes from a "good" family as it does with a poor woman.

    Thank you sofib09 and others for the mature responses instead of the immature name calling. I too was born from humble beginnings but my immigrant parents worked very hard to get to the top. As a result, I have been living upper middle class since my teenage years. I wouldn't want my wife to have a total disregard for my family's well being but I am also not looking for her to carry my weight. I personally would feel uncomfortable with my wife taking care of my family and I hope she would feel the same way about me taking care of her family (besides her parents). I never said I wanted to get with a rich but like I said I'm not to comfortable getting with a poorer chick either simply for the fact that I'm not sure if she is attracted to me as a person or my money. The best balance for me would be chick from an upper middle class background. That way she will know the value of money and hard work from being raised in a decent household and I would not have to worry about her getting too greedy with money since she would be somewhat used to it.

    What is considered upper middle class here in the United States and what country does your family come from? Somewhere in Africa I presume?

    I wouldn't put the type of woman I like in terms of upper/middle/lower class as far as income goes, I just require her to have class. And, honestly, coming from a less well-off background a girl is less likely to catch my attention because she most likely won't have some of the qualities I'm looking for.

    Let me clarify, I would help her parents but that's where it stops there. I admit, I would feel low if I couldn't take care of my parents and she wouldn't want to. My deal is taking care of her other relatives ie siblings.

    To answer you question ProdigyOfZen, my parents are from Ghana and upper middle class to me would be a household that generates anywhere from $150K (somewhere in Texas) to $750k (New York City) depending on the city/state.

    i ask you this...

    1. what do you bring to the table?
    2. rich or poor no one wants an idiot and you sound like one....

    power of the P will win everytime.. you say you would not marry a waitress but when that great looking waitress is making your toes curl you feel like you found a little slice of heaven.... you;re a kid so i will guess dont have a lot of exp with women... but end of the day.. you dont hold as many cards as you think you do.. most women dont give a crap about yout job or your pay.. as long as you can provide.. and thats not diamonds and pearls... its simple stuff.. trust me.. you think you are a great package but women get offers everyday from men for stuff simply for having a P... its true...


    this may apply to women from poorer backgrounds, women will rarely ever downgrade from their current social class.

    jesus christ, either half of the people in this thread are really retarded and actually believe all their true love conquers all and power of the P (i guess this means penis?) bullshit or you just never have been around chicks from wealthy families lol.

    women do it all the time.... it works both ways.. men and women both date down and up.... if anything women play the better 10x better then men...

    younger chicks will occassionally date down, the older they get the less down dating, down marriage is very very very rare.

    alot of bitter people from poor backgrounds denying women being attracted to status and money on WSO.

    LOL yea i'm sure WSO's membership is comprised entirely of bitter people from poor backgrounds. that's why were're so pissed at OP for this thread, in fact i'm standing in the welfare line as i type this ahahahahahah.

    on another note someone made a troll post not too long ago about changing this website's name to "congregation of tools". threads like these make me understand why people say stuff like that.

    Money Never Sleeps? More like Money Never SUCKS amirite?!?!?!?

    The degree to which many of you lack basic social consciousness is astounding. Speculating on the "class" of the person you're going to marry before you've even had a single adult relationship is also fucking retarded.

    I've dated up and down the spectrum of "classes" (random: for a country that boasts of its social mobility, it's remarkable how much the income of one's parents determine life trajectory... and how some of you idiots care so much about it) and the only generality I've been able to pull is that rich girls act the most entitled. Then again, I've also been with independent rich girls who work for their own money and insist on contributing for their share. What have I learned? Each person is different. While certain patterns may exist, there are plenty of people out there who don't fit the mold.

    After years of marriage, many people develop close relationships with their in-laws. In 20 years, you will either hate them or feel like they're your second parents. If the latter, I hope to God you will WANT to help them as you would want to help your own parents. If the former, and your wife insists on assisting them, you should STILL want to help them. They're her blood. You would want the same care for your parents if you couldn't afford it. Common decency isn't so common anymore, apparently.

    You love hard-working banker girls? Faaaaaantastic. Take them. I'll go with the happy, outgoing, adventurous, attractive, non-neurotic women. *gasp* if I'm reaaaallyyyy lucky, I might even find one of those with some intelligence too. I know, I know: if you're not in banking or didn't go to a top target you're CLEARLY mentally challenged, but a man can dream, no? Seriously... why a banking girl? Have you ever been with one? Most of them are as dull as their male counterparts. Sure, they're ambitious. Some of them are attractive. Some of them dress really well. Most of the ones I've encountered get boring to hang out with quickly. And many are fucking robots. Also, a girl can be independent even if she's not on the "greatness" track (see LSO).

    At the end of the day, I want to find someone who makes me happy. I claim to be an independent guy and, as such, am not depending on my wife's income or family money to support whatever lifestyle I may want. If she wants to work until we're married and then stay at home and focus on becoming the best wife and mother she can be, I'd be fucking ecstatic. If she wants to work, I'd fucking ecstatic as well. Compromise comes a lot easier when two people are happy together and genuinely care about one another. But fuck, I'm way too young to hypothesize about what makes a marriage work.

    All I know is: I couldn't care less about how much money my girl makes. It's all about how happy I am with her. Also: you sound like a terrible, heartless fucking person. And you also sound like you have shit for game.
