Social Gap in Relationship

Updated on October 29, 2009

I’m not an actor

I’m not a star

And I don’t have my own car

But I’m hoping so much you’ll stay

That you will love me anyway

The ActorMichael Learns To Rock

Social gap is social class differences between man and woman. Like the song from  Michael  Learn To Rock. Sometime can’t be avoided.  Because many people believe in a particular social class divisions. Based on economic factors, lifestyle or family background.

Social Gap is actually different problems and ways of thinking habits caused by factors such as money, education level. This social gap happen when the one of both can’t tolerate  with the habits and lifestyle between the couples.

Money Talks

Not all men objection has a couple richer than himself. This is become consideration getting approach with her. Sometimes woman have no objection when she paid the dinner. All about money is sensitive thing. When he can’t follow his lifestyle couple and he think he can’t tolerate her lifestyle. This relationship future will end soon and it become big question.

The So Called Education

In the era of technological progress and information, there was a man who objected when his partner smarter or higher levels of education. They think that men should have higher education than women. But for a man who have wide of knowledge it is not a big problem. The important key is how to support and fill each other.

The “Royal” Family

The differences of family background still become a problem in cracking of a relationship. Still remember with “A Cinderella story” movie , with Hilary Duff as an actress and Michael Murray as an actor. This movie tell about a girl who work in café with want a relationship with a man as the quarterback of the football team and the most popular student at school . But this story end with happy.

Down To Earth

Even if you're rich.  You have to “down to earth”. Don’t too pick the partner. You have to get along even with the social classes under you.  As well as if you are not rich don’t limit your interaction. It’s only a matter of time. Just optimistic.

Tolerance in Relationship

Try to take your spouse to a place that is not too fancy. The important thing is both of you feel good and enjoy. If you go by yourself, there is a problem between your relationship.  We have to talk the differences and try to get the solution. Between each spouse there must be the differences. The important thing is how we put ourselves. So insecure feeling will be lost.You can put yourself in a new social class. Social gaps will be a problem if we are less confident.

      One minute I was the local squatting agent in inner city London, spending time with people so poor they were burning the floor boards to keep warm. A week later a prestigious job too me to California where I appeared on National TV and had to escape paparazi. I love the contrasts, they feed off each other. And I like to get on with people from all walks of life.

      "Down To Earth" is the best advice in this hub. Thank you for the positive thoughts. I have been fortunate to have success and fame at different times of my life. The biggest lesson that I teach my children is that everyone should be treated fairly and never judge someone before you speak to them. I have good friends from all walks of life. Some are extremely wealthy and I too am very fortunate right now in my life but some of my good friends don't have a lot but are very happy. The thing we all have in common is that "we are all down to earth." The way we see the world and what we put out there. I always give people a chance for us to establish "trust" in the relationship first. This is most important in relationships. Not money and education only. Best, GPAGE

      Hi Prasetio - The only social gap that I have experienced is the gap between what I want to do and what my wallet allows me to do. Quite a big gap, that one. :-)))

      Thanks Hello and Pete. I agree with you Pete. I think with the same responsibility where man and woman can do that this is the equality mean. Better to melt the "social gap" become "social unity". You have nice opinion about this topic. I am glad to know that.

      Hopefully we are getting over all of the silly notions of the past. Men and women perform equally well in most tasks and should expect equal respect. There are some things men to do better and there some things women do better but I think we have grown out of the notion of a dominate sex.

      That was great, really was. I never seen it as a 'social gap' and therefore found it very interesting. Thank you.
