girl w/promise & a bright future ahead of her to be friends with, let alone date,or become involved with a boy from a poor socioeconomic background?Let's face it,socioeconomically affluent people mainly mingle & interface w/their own kind as socioeconomically poorer people mingle & interace w/their own kind. In fact,wealthier parents strongly advise their children not to have friendships/relationships w/poorer children for quite sound reasons as poorer children usually have NOTHING to offer positively to their children & can be DETRIMENTAL to them in terms of lifestyle & future prospects!

Yes,not only mature but intelligent women tend to be w/successful or potentially successful men.Smart teenagers tend to do this also.When I was a teenager,I would only want to date upper middle or rich boys/young men. I would NEVER EVER date POOR!
You are probably the exception! Most young women are attracted to "hot looking guys" regardless of their parent's income. As a teen guy I always knew I was going away to college so I didn't treat high school as if I were looking for my "soul-mate"
In high school & college, boyfriends were the last thing on my mind. I concentrated on my studies and besides, I had a STRICT West Indian father, need I say MORE....He believed that dating should be when one is in his/her 20s & marriage in o
"no socioeconomically affluent boy would want a poor girl!"
Rich men marry women who are poor/ lower middle class more often then you would imagine. If a woman is (very attractive and intelligent) she won't have a problem finding a successful man
There is one to a million chance that a poor boy becomes highly successful. Let's get real here. Poor/impoverished boys become poor/impoverished men-who WANTS that!
Now you are exaggerating ! There are many successful people that came from poor backgrounds, and yet that is what made them be more successful ! Examples are the rich entertainment Industry. Many are millionaires ,how does this apply to them?
Well, that's USED to be but now the majority of people who become rich are from solidly middle to upper middle class background. Poor children these days seldom become rich. They're more likely to.......remain poor.
You have said some good points GM, and as a perant and grand perant I would only want the best for my young Adults also, but we must remember
Money may buy convenience ,but money can not buy the heart of real love!
Love is totally inconsequential. It does not put food on the table, pay for medical bills, education, & for the future. Money is more than so-called convenience. It means power, influence, & all the IMPORTANT things of life.
the love Of God growed the food. That we put on our tables ,that love also created all the we need to survive on this planet that money can not produce, gold and silver are just tools that man turned into resources!
Love is what is keeping us alive.
Further, does LOVE factor anywhere in this scenario? Apparently not!
Why would your daughter make the choice of a felon! That is saying if! Why would her heart make a choice, if is not money then what els ?
Kiss and Tales - She might be unaware that he's a felon until she finds out and has become emotionally invested in him. Then, disassociating with him would be a hard choice to make, his past as a felon notwithstanding.
I agree Nadia ,that was what I meant about getting emotionally envolved
That emotion is love ! So love can play a part in these choices.
