Marry Down or Else!

Lefties taking inequality to a whole new level of idiocy! The royal wedding between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry set this off. Even though her dress was rather plain and underwhelming for wealthy lady marrying a rich royal.
When rich people marry other rich people, social and financial inequality gets worse. Here's how:

...the general pattern of recent years, particularly in the US, has been for mating to become less random. In other words, people are tending to choose mates who are more like themselves, not less. One result is increased inequality....

There have been a number of studies of this, of which the best-known (and much criticised) one was published by the National Bureau of Economic Research in the US, Marry Your Like: Assortative Mating and Income Inequality.

... But the bigger point here is that if well educated young people choose other well educated young people as their life partners, then their children are likely to have a better start in life. The more that the rich partner with the rich, the greater the entrenched advantages of their children and children’s children...

Most people marry people in their group/bracket.

I am a college graduate. I am not marrying a lady without a college degree.

So you'd marry laterally.

I still don't get the premise of the article.

Prince Harry and Meghan aren't even in the same socioeconomic or class universe.

Prince Harry is worth $30 million, literal royalty, top level of the British hierarchy, whose status could get him any quality of woman he desires.

Meghan is, at best, a C-list actress, worth $5 million, divorced, 37 years old, probably hit the wall already.

It's true that they're both wealthy compared to most, but Harry is marrying way the **** down.

She is still rich compared to most. Harry has only down to go anyway regarding marriage.

The point, with the left is that they see this as not correcting income inequality of the poor when the-already-rich marry the vastly richer. It's not my concern, she's still vastly improving her situation ( in exchange for a fish-bowl life full or rules and protocols), but it is to person who wrote it. I was making fun of the concern by this leftist.

I'm absolutely the primary breadwinner in the family. There was several years where my wife did not make good money at all but that was in many ways brought on by us having kids and it limited the job options for her. Basically it was more financially viable for her to do daycare than for us to put the kids in daycare. Now she could have grinded through and advanced in a different job, but it was also important to her that she be the primary person to raise our kids rather than someone else so that was a sacrifice we made.

Now that we are though that period, I'd love it if she ended up with a much better paying job. Just means we can retire earlier. She has an ok job now and that just means I've been able to double what we put in investments. I'd have loved that to be the case for the past decade but it just wasn't. I've already done that upfront work of securing a comfortable nest egg for us. I've provided for my family and secured the future for my wife and kids. If she expands that, I'd be very happy.

I do understand the mindset that as a guy you want to make more for your family. You feel a duty to provide. I don't think you are diminished in any way by having a wife who can provide as well. If your ego is that fragile, a strong woman probably wouldn't want to be with you anyways.

As to your theory, Queen Elizabeth II's husband, Prince Phillip had an aweful time of it adjusting to her becoming queen upon her father's death. I don't think it's a loveless union, in fact her own family weren't really for the marriage originally, but it was hard for him to adjust to being second––and in her case that means very second and unimportant. He was a manly kind of guy too.
Yet Victoria and Albert never had that as a problem. It was more that Elizabeth and Phillip weren't married very long when she became Queen. Her father died very young in his early 50s.

Untrue.

Throughout history men usually marry laterally or down in the socio economic ladder, and women usually marry laterally or up.

That's literally been the dynamic for thousands of years.

Couldn't agree more....I came in the house the other day and the Wife was watching that crap. I swear to you that in the 5 minutes I actually paid attention to that drivel I heard "African-American" (she is not) "black lady" (she is not) "Bi-racial" (she is) I know 25 times.

Sickening. Absolutely sickening. Went back out and mowed the yard......

I actually met my Wife in Germany. She was the daughter of an Army Officer and was going to school at Heidelberg University for her Master's in Nursing.

I had just complete my BA at University of Louisville. And was serving at USAEUR in Heidelberg. I was a lowly Warrant Officer at that time.

Trust me when I tell you this - I would have married the girl if she had dropped out of High School. First time I saw her - I was out with a couple of friends and I told one of them - Holy Shit! I am going to marry that girl!. He laughed and told that I was "full of shit"

6 months later - we were married. That was nearly 50 years ago......

I married so far UP that it is ridiculous....and she knows it....
