Why do class matters in relationships, the rich chooses among their class.
I have a friend who's family disowned her because she choose love or class. I believe this standard is passed down from elder generations as it was in her case. It has been 5 years and they still want nothing to do with her or their new grandchildren.
Because rich and poor has different lifestyles (mostly). People always try to find someone who are like them. The choice has nothing to do with money.
The reason that people tend to choose a relationship from there class is because of the way they were raised. This is nothing against any of the classes, just plain and simple. Some people will go outside of their class, but complications always arise. For example if you try to take somebody to a fancy dinner party and they never even saw a salad fork before not only would you feel embarrassed but they would probably never want to go to another event with you again. On the other hand if you are from a lower class and find working hard to get what you need to survive the way of life, then it is very difficult to adjust to somebody that has everything they want. Imagine trying to buy them a present! How useless would you feel if you could not afford to get them anything worth while? Still when love gets involved all of those social reasons can go out the window, but it is not an easy adjustment to make.
Affluent people seldom date and/or marry a less affluent person as the latter has nothing to bring to the table. I remember a coworker relating to me that she told her son(she was upper middle class) to NEVER date a girl from the projects-no class!
I know it varies greatly depending on the country you're in. I'm in the US, and I think it's mainly due to two things. First, rich people are more likely to have other rich people in their social circles, and the same with poor people (i.e. co-workers, etc.). Second, if someone is very rich, I imagine that they learn to be very wary of the people who vie for their attention. Someone who is poor might fall under suspicion, because the rich person might wonder if they're only after them for the money. A poor person being wooed by a rich person may think that s/he is simply being played with. If people are of comparable socioeconomic status, then it's one less consideration during dating/courtship/marriage/etc.
Of course, class matters in relationships. If one is affluent-middle, upper middle, and/or upper class, it is better to date and marry within your class and/or better. One dates and/or marry within their particular class structure because there is a commonality present whether it is values, aspirations, and/or goals.
If one does not date and/or marry within one particular socioeconomic class, one often aspires to date and/or marry someone from a higher socioeconomic class. This is smart because the latter can expose the former to a better lifestyle and open avenues which he/she was not formerly exposed to. When one dates and/or marries up, the relationship is often beneficial to socioeconomic, mental, and emotional growth.
It is totally stupid and inane to even consider dating and/or marrying one from a lower socioeconomic class. A person who does this is actually dooming himself/herself to a less than qualitiative existence. This type of relationship will be wrought with problems. Why would an affluent person want to EVEN date someone who is poor? The poor person has absolutely nothing to contribute to the relationship and will be an albatross to the affluent person. No thinking person dates and/or marries below his/her socioeconomic class- the relationship would be highly detrimental in the long run.

When dating do you believe there is real difference between being shallow and having preferences?If a man refuses to date women who are overweight and a woman refuses to date men who are shorter than her would you consider them to be shallow? or Would you view it as having specific preferences?...

How much do you care about what others think about you?Let's assume you're a decent human being. Do you care what complete strangers think about what you wear, what you read, how your hair is, or whether you're in a relationship or not?
