Whatever happens to ladies' intuition and common sense? Can't a lady recognize a man that is good for her, the guy's situation irrespective? Is it so easy to make wrong judgments when marital issues are in view? I think not! I assume you don't see/meet a man today and just decide to marry him - his social status nothwitstanding; so why the hullabaloo on riches/poverty as a criteria in the choice of a partner?
