I thought these things were what it really took for a man to be my “equal” in life.But what I have discovered is that it isn’t a man’s incomes or pedigree that makes him my equal, but rather it’s his character, perseverance, and his hustle. Daniels I always imagined myself marrying my “equal” or what I perceived to be my equal.He had to have a college degree and he had to make a certain income.My question is this: I am an aspiring law student who comes from a poor background.I really have no idea how educated people *truly* look at those who have less of an education than them.So let’s say he is just a mechanic — does it matter?I say no, his profession does not matter: a happy spouse is a good thing.
Readers have joked a lot that they would love to be electricians (set your own hours and prices, always in demand, etc.), and my own first thought was, “that’ll be great, because when you start to make real money you and he can buy a franchise or set up his own shop and really start to pave your own way.” But that may assume an ambition that isn’t there on the part of your fiance — maybe he has no desire to ever run his own shop or be a boss/manager.
There are people who WANT to commit, some who are not ready just yet, and some who simply WON’T.
You just have to find one who wants to take their relationship with you seriously.
Look at celebrities who date other celebrities—don’t necessarily work, right?
But sometimes they will date the “everyday guy” and the relationship finds itself in marriage which lasts for many years.
