In our society, as can be seen, a lot of parents prefer to have their children married with rich ones or those in the top class of the society they may be official second generation and rich second generation. As a daughter of my parents, I fell in love with a boy who is not in both sides, what can we do? Are we going to break up with our partners?

When it comes to love and marriage,parents always wanted their children to marry the right person. Parents are there to guide and give advice,but not to choose whom you must marry. You have to understand your parents if they will be upset with your choice. And they need to understand and accept your decision as well,if your parents love you. Because,there is no worth,no money or wealth in this world that can buy true happiness and love. It's your life,and you will be one who's going to marry,and will live with that person the rest of your life.

I have to say your opinion is so similar to mine. But you know in our countryside , many people are obessed with marrying the rich or powerful ones. they trust that they can abandon the poor by doing this.I seems that in their mind this is the only way to live a good life with which I do not agree.

Not exactly rich, but well off. indeed not all parents like that, but 99% are like that. not that materialistic. but it is realistic. with treasures parents see the possibility of his daughter there is more hope for no future life miserable if they already live alone / join her husband. and sometimes (not always) the property can make love more colorful, wise in the long run it. rich but not the start of the heart. if the spirit to be rich already exists in your heart, surely the road to it will be straight and easily accessible. if you have a belief that men can be like that, it's already way over there for you.

It is not necessary to have a son who must be rich in law. I think everyone should work for his or her need. You should not bank on your children to make money for your need. I think a mother or father should pray for true love and happiness within the marriage and not to spend all the years searching for millinaire suitors. You may end up never getting someone to be married to. It is a fact that some rich in law can be rude,arrogant,evil, and dangerous. So hope for true love.

Parents should not want their children to be married off to someone rich. They should want their future in-laws to be industrious, hard-working and kind. With these traits, they will always be willing to do the work to be able to provide for their spouse. Not all rich people are hard-working and kind anyway. Some would even squander their riches away. So if the prevailing practice in a society is to marry off the children to rich spouses, then there's something wrong with that society. I mean no offense. But it teaches the singles to look at material things first and not the character of the person. That's wrong, I think. Of course, I don't need to mention that we should marry someone whom we love. That's a given already.
