We hear about women who marry wealthier men all the time. But eyebrows get raised when the reverse happens, when the man marries the girl from a wealthy family and enjoys all the perks, that’s the kind of stuff that really gets people talking around here.
I know a girl who worked as a teller in a bank that married a guy so wealthy (who happened to also be a client btw), she quit her job the minute their plane touched down from the honeymoon, she didn’t even give a months’ notice, and mind you no one really cared, it was the most natural next step for her to take before she assumed her position as a high roller in society.
But I also know a guy who married a girl whose daddy owns one of the most lucrative construction businesses in the Middle East. While most men would feel emasculated at the mere thought of wedding a woman from an entirely different social standing, it didn’t bother him in the least, in fact it may as well have even been the deal breaker. His wife’s parents financed the entire destination wedding-extravaganza, gave them a million-something dollar apartment in one of the most high-end districts of Beirut, threw in a couple of sports cars here and there and, he even got a senior position at her father’s company. Everyone just loves to discuss how he’s “milking his sugar mamma”, how he has “no dignity”, how he “sold his soul” to his in-laws, a guy that made his way to the top by falling in love with the right girl. But the truth is he really does work hard, takes himself very seriously at the workplace and boasts about the profits he’s reaping in for the company. In his eyes, everyone’s a winner.
No matter how happy and in love those two may seem, all people do is hate on him. While the rest of the men are struggling to make ends meet, he married his millions. But what do you think, why it it ok for a woman to marry rich and not for a man?
