Recent trend shows more women are graduating college than men. This could potential mean more women will start making more money than men. The problem for women is that hypergamy makes woman always want to never settle for a man who they perceive are lower than them.
A common problem among women who are in high paid profession like lawyers, doctors and engineers is that they waste a good bit of their youth on their education in order to get high paying jobs. These women can make enough to support themselves and a child if they had one. Yet, many women today still want a man to "provide" for them.
This is where the problem arises for these women. Many of them are in top 10% of wealth in world. Several of them make over 100k/year. Yet, women still for the very least want men who make around their salary or more for a relationship. Majority of women still refuse to date down;whether it's financially or status wise.
Men in general do not care about a woman's wealth or status. It' doesn't really factor so much into their attraction for mates. Men care about personality, youth and looks and many of these women squandered it in pursuit of male dominating careers. So the men they want are dating an attractive math teacher, or girl whose in college still and that lowers their dating pool for eligible men.
Women in this predicament seeing that they can support themselves and stand on their own feet would have a much easier time if they look for someone who is good partner to them and good with kids. Rather than focusing on how much a man's make and his status. After all having 2 high paid professional for parents would mean that the kids would most likely end up being neglected at home.
