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...

That's true. It was a love match and she had nine kids. So you know what they were busy with. Though she was a shitty mother, she still populated most of European royalty that still exists today.

I don't know about his wealth, whereas Phillip had to escape Greece and as separated from his family pretty young. So I wonder if he had much of anything.
Seems like the old way of marrying royalty ended with Charles.

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.
I know that. They didn't expect it to be so soon, and that they'd more time together as a couple but also so he could be in the navy—which he loved. He eventually found his place from look up info about Phillip when I watched The Crown. He eventually found his way.

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....
I will bet that even with your wife's education level and looks, you still married down.

Thing is, women aren't attracted to the same thing that men are. They want someone who's cool, confident, and gives them that feeling of security (financial or physical) that they can't get on their own. They want to look at you like a man that can and will take control so they won't have to.

Men are attracted to looks, sex, food, and shut-your-face.

You had a degree and a military career. You were probably a handsome, charming, assertive guy in uniform. She was likely just some goofy Army brat going into nursing. You were the prize.

Yeah, I was the spitting image of Sean Connery

So let's review. She was the daughter of a big wig in the Army at Heidelberg. I was the Son of an Army Colonel. She was going to University on a full scholarship. She already had a BSN and was working on her Masters.


I (who was a brand spanking new) former Staff Sergeant turned Warrant Officer assigned to an Intelligence Office, keeping track of Russians operating in West Germany in Heidelberg.

So yeah, I was a HUGE prize!

Sickening. Absolutely sickening. Went back out and mowed the yard......
Eh. Black nationalists are calling her a race traitor on black twitter. She's a hero or a coon, depending on which idiot you ask.

Personally I'm pretty sure the US fought and won a war specifically so we didn't have to give a **** about the royal family.

I was thinking about this post as I've been binge-watching the PBS series of Victoria, despite having posted earlier on this post of yours.

Actually, Victoria and Albert did have some problems as Albert felt useless and without purpose at first. I usually check out what is true or not in these entertainment films or series and per the BBC Albert and Victoria had terrible rows with each other over management of her household, her duties as Queen and some things he did publicly. She resented her numerous pregnancies because he would take over her duties as Queen.
