Does a man's bank account really matter?
Someone I know has a 20 year old DD. She has always encouraged her DD to make sure she settles down with someone who is well off financially. Her DD has now just had a baby with a man who is almost twice her age, and the mum is happy because she sees this man as rich. He has a business, a land rover, a fairly large house with a pool etc, and those things seemed to be the main thing that the mum and her DD are bothered about.
I also know a mom who went on all the time about her daughters only dating rich men, and both ended up marrying men that are well off. I don't think they would have dared to settle down with someone who wasn't wealthy!
The woman with the 20 year old seems to think that anyone who doesn't encourage their DD to marry well is weird. My main concern would be that DD is a) happy and b) that she ends up with someone that treats her well. Money doesn't really come into it, does it?
