Not everyone bears the bad behavior of their life partner just because they earn a substantial amount of money.

While everything was going fine, an argument soon snapped him to a realization that the relationship had no potential future. She mentioned a lot of things that were wrong with the guy, which also included the huge difference in their earnings. 

5. When Love Overpowered Financial Differences

Someone shared about dating a self-made woman who earned ten times more than him. And what set her apart was the fact that she used to save more than she earned, unlike other rich individuals. The guy went on praising her determined attitude. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out, but not because of the money issues. The man was in the struggling phase of his career and had to stay away from home for long periods.

An individual got lucky with his love life even when he was dating a girl who was not rich initially. He shared how her mom remarrying a wealthy guy changed their lives for good.

Someone shared the story of their not-so-conventional relationship where the woman was eight years older than the guy. While she was generous and had a straightforward personality, it turns out she was with him just because of his genetics. The woman wanted kids and made it clear to the guy within two months of their relationship.

10. Vibes Over Bank Balance

A college graduate dated a rich girl with expensive fashion choices, a luxury car, and a huge river house. While she herself was earning a minimum wage, it was her family’s wealth that she showed off. According to the guy, he ended the relationship in just four months as he could not click with the girl. He does ponder sometimes about how he’d be able to retire the same day if they got married. But alas, for him, vibes mattered over the bankroll.
