Great scene from Blue Valentine
Women that marry men for status and resources often end up miserable. I have seen this many times in my life. My mother married my father because of his professional status. This blinded her. She ended up stuck with a man that is abusive NPD ( narcissistic personality disorder). The money and lifestyle pales in comparison to the other stuff.
I have an ex gf who after we broke up got pregnant for her beta bux. She totally ignored this dude for years and when the wall came closer she latched on to him. Apparently he had access to a ton of family money. Well fast forward and they are no longer together and she is not happy with the situation. She admitted that she didnt want to leave him because he had a nice house and fancy stuff.
The most important characteristic to look for in a husband is character. The money will come if the guy has good character. It's better to live a lower middle class lifestyle and have a happy home than to live rich and be miserable. I know a girl who married a guy who is not rich but has an amazing personality. She is happy.
The same goes for men. We over emphasize the looks aspects of a female when we are supposed to be looking at character. In summary, Karma ends up catching up with many of these hypergamous females. When your base you life decisions on vanity and ego you always pay a price.
