do men want to marrywomen who earn more? from my viewpoint, i think a couple should be well matched in character as well as social and economic status. for me, i would like my husband earn more than me, and then i try my best to earn my living and assist him to build our swet home. i hope i can amke as much money as i can, and i hope my future husband can make more than me. i htink men cares about if they can make more than their wifes. there's no reason, in chinese tradition. it is unacceptable for a man to amrry a women earning much than him which makes him lossing face in public. nowaday, young generations do not care the traditional constraints. as a precondition of no concerns from girls and theri parents, couple in love can easy to marry. as for my opinion, balance is important element in post amrriage life. i htink nobody can tolerate a woman holding her head high in home everyday of course, this is a worse case listed and i wish you will not encounter it forever. just a tradition in china and in most of the countries in the world. in my opinion, the thing matter is what your mone use for but not who earn much for a fammily, husband or wife earn more money that spend not in family but in other will spoil the family.

I don't think getting married should have anything to do with social standing or how much money another person makes. I have been married a long time and sometimes my husband makes more and sometimes I do. My husband is much more social than I am but I think we balance each other out. You know they say opposits attract.

Social status should not be a barrier in marriage, you should marry the person you love regardless of his or her status, but the reality in the world of today men do fear a lady who's social status is higher than her, It has been happening and the possible senario is where men feel comfortable to marry women who's social status is either the same or below them
