Rare to find a woman marrying down.
Id have to be pretty stupid to (screw) my way to the bottom! Cant remember the movie but it was a good line.
[Rare to find a woman marrying down.]
I know of one, she even made him take her last name.
I did. My parents were aghast when I married a mechanic.
26 years later we own our own business including the commercial building it is in and have one payment left on our house (we are pretty excited about that). We have 4 successful adult children living responsibly and independently on their own. They all have associates degrees, two are pursuing bachelors in STEM fields, one is a tradesmen like his father and the the youngest just married an electrician.
I have been a stay at home wife since day one and live a comfortable spoiled life, although he does make me spend a morning or two a week on doing the books.
This from the article “Its kind of a renewal of the dignity of work, which is that someone who has a skill, has a trade, and is able to work hard will be able to support a family even if they do not have a college degree, is what we need to shout from the rooftops.
It didn’t take long for my parents to realize what a talented gem my spouse is. He is a genius with cars but he is also a fair hand at plumbing and construction.
What do I do all day. Some light housework, a little scratch cooking and various hobbies.
Women wont marry down. Men wont marry old.
Mine did, but she knew when I met her that I would never make a lot of money in my chosen profession. Didn’t bother her then, and 19 years later doesn’t bother her now.
