Hey Jow Forums, am I wrong for judging the potential partners based on their income? For background information, I am nearly a medical practitioner and I just don't think it would be "fair" to marry beneath me. If I do, I would end up paying for the majority of the household and I don't think that would be fair really. I've worked so hard and suffered so much to get to where I am and I would like it if my wife had the same apply for her. I came from a lower income household myself for extra background information.
Yea that's dumb. What if the woman felt the same way? Then nobody could date anyone unless they made the exact same amount of money. One of you gets a raise? Grounds for divorce. Also if you have any children then someone is going to be working less and what then. Your way of thinking is just dumb.
No its not dumb.
Wanting someone who can pull there weight alongside you is a valid need. That said if you actually love this woman and are willing to overlook it go for it. If not well, if your not comfortable getting married your not comfortable. I can't promise any woman after her can be the same but I can promise that you will survive.
Yeah if your ambition is having a high income partner you should aim for it.
It doesn't have to be the exact same. I would be fine with similar incomes.
That's not really my goal, I'm really aiming for someone that I like, but an income disparity really keeps on irking me.
>That said if you actually love this woman and are willing to overlook it go for it.
Yeah I'm trying to but the salary gap really bothers me. Even if a partner had a higher income than me, I would feel like a leech.
Women can be good support in other ways. If you're two busy but wealthy people... I guess you'll have money... but what else?
you're not wrong, but it's not something most males do, look at trump or bezos or many rich men. they generally prefer a woman who can support them and make them perform better, rather than one that performs great on her own.
>t. millionaire not caring about partner's income, but amount of stimulation they provide
in fact i find ur criteria so weird that i feel like it's probably a roastie with a medical degree trying to justify her sacrifice for her income potential of other aspects of her life
"it will earn me a better partner!"
sorry if incorrect, but this is what i feel
Shit LARP, go back to coding monkey.
>I've worked so hard and suffered so much to get to where I am and I would like it if my wife had the same apply for her
You are wrong and pozzed and you like anime so there is something fucked up about you. It's funny because doctors are all such incredible assholes when they aren't really that smart. I've never met a doctor who seemed smart enough to code in Java unless they were some sort of surgeon. You are just a fag with a 120IQ who is good at memorization and desperate for status. Go kill yourself
I actually had good advice to give you but you reminded me of how much I hate the average medical doctor so fuck off. Most people think you're an asshole btw. We all hate most doctors at this point. You signed up to work for a corrupt bureaucracy, that mainly deals ineffective drugs, for social status : nobody is impressed
I'm a male.
I'm not even practicing yet user. But yeah, you're right, most doctors are assholes. You're one too.
>Yeah I'm trying to but the salary gap really bothers me. Even if a partner had a higher income than me, I would feel like a leech.
The thing is user thats how YOU would feel, and this is a standard that you hold yourself too. I am not saying this is a bad thing but you talk to her about her financial situation and let her know that marriage isn't in the picture but maintaining a healthy childless relationship with her is.
Cause lets face it dude you shouldn't force yourself to get married if you just don't want to thats a recipe for disaster.
>But yeah, you're right, most doctors are assholes. You're one too
Nope just you, get sued
Yet you're the one that randomly decided to attack me and I'm not even practicing yet. Did a doctor do something bad to you or something?
It's also not "fair" that you need to interact with and put your hands on disgusting prole people for low 6 figs and deal with life or death situations while tech and finance people only have to see their equals at work and deal only with abstract work not disgusting dying people
So deal with it user
>What if the woman felt the same way?
then the average man would have to earn less than he currently does lmao
women do think this way lol. ever see a loaded babe with some poor mong? lmao
>am I wrong for judging the potential partners based on their income?
If you're a guy, it's fairly silly, but if you want to, go ahead.
The biggest concern you have is with gold-diggers, so when meeting women it's best that you only let them know that you're financially solvent. Don't let them know how much you actually make.
>Screeching roasties ITT
fucking lmao OP, I posted almost this exact question like a week ago, except I phrased it in an inoffensive way like "is it reasonable to expect my partner have a commensurate level of income" and had no reactions
welcome to the betabux trap, where everyone around you thinks it's the natural order of things to get yourself a trophy wife with access to your new income, which easily falls into the top 10% of incomes for your age, who can then deplete it in the consumer economy
I will tell you now that if you don't like it and decide you're not going to play this shitty little game, be prepared to be judged by all those people around you severely for not manning up and providing
My uncle, a high-flying electronics engineer, married his secretary. Their 40th anniversary is coming up. She may not have all the degrees he has, but in a lot of ways she's the smarter of the two
No it’s not bad to judge someone based on what kind of digits they pull in. It’s bad to love someone based purely on that.
Society is broken. Remember when it was considered normal for men to bring home they money and stay-at-home moms actually stayed home in order to raise the family? Now we have trannies and PowerPoint moms with children getting manufactured in public schools.
