  • For the UK it's £6.50 per hour.

    Yes I would. I mean I would be very hypocritical if I didn't. I mean one job I'm on min wage and the other I'm on apprentice min wage (£2.73 an hour).
    Thing is, money isn't everything and when you are on that low a wage with dedication you can move up easily. I'm not gonna be an apprentice forever and when I'm not I will probably earn more than min wage.

  • Whut? The minimum wage has just gone up by 20p to £6.70 for a 21+ year old. They expect to get to £8 an hour minimum wage by 2020. I would marry someone on the minimum wage and no I'm not lying. If it's enough to sustain us and I'm truly in love, that's all that matters.

    Your poll game is poor.

    • Minimum wage is way less than $13.44... try like $7.44 It differs from state to state tho

  • Yes I would. He's got a job and that's better than just staying in your room/living room playing videogames.
    I would be working too so it won't be a problem. :)

  • No, not unless I was earning minimum wage too. Fuck that "money doesn't matter bullshit" I want someone who is able to contribute financially to the relationship and provide for our future children. It would be different if we are teenagers/college kids... but full grown adults? He better keep moving.

    • Haha, I was just writing a long ass answer but then I see you write that. Unfortunately, I don't like that attitude. I feel like you were never going to accept what said if I did give you a direct example anyway. Oh well.

    • @UnknownXYZ lol, then ignorance will continue to be my bliss.

    And why I decide to marry someone

  • Honestly? Yes, I would.

    You should only consider marriage if you're in love. If you refuse to marry someone because of the size of their wallet, you're not in love.

  • The minimum wage where I live is lower than $3, so no. They aren't ready to get married until they are financially independent of their parents.

  • I voted "A" and I'm not lying at all.

    Who cares how much money someone makes? At least they're WORKING. It's better than people who purposely don't work at all. It's not their fault that minimum wage isn't a liveable wage. Even if you tell them to get a better job, it's not easy to most of the time. If you tell them to get a college degree, they might still be working a minimum wage job (if they couldn't find a job with the degree.)

    Anyone who who wouldn't marry someone who makes minimum wage is superficial and is PROOF that many people (especially women) are gold-diggers.

  • I do well enough... so it would not be a big issue. Some people are not afforded the same luxuries in life such as an education in a field that lands them a good paying job.

    You can't fault them for that!

  • I dont think people are taking into consideration that some people have crap degrees and have no choice but to work at minimum wage. I personally dont understand why people pursue certain degrees because they are obviously terrible but if it's what you love then go for it. So depending on their situation why wouldn't you marry someone that is making minimum wage? If they are some high school drop out reject that doesn't care about any advancement then i can understand. But if they show determination to better their lives then maybe they are worth standing beside?

    I might be okay with it if she's actually a hard worker and trying to do better, but I'd at least prefer that she makes somewhat more than that.

  • more importantly why is she earning that much?

    if its a good reason, i would date her... if its because she's lazy, doesn't care about education etc , no way

    i plan on making good money and its not to baby sit but to invest for retirement.

    • Pound still doing well then. How does that work were you have two separate currencies? Do you get the option of what currency you want to be paid in? Which currency is seen more commonly on a day to day basis?

  • Yes I would marry a woman that made minimum wage. The good news for poor women is that men don't tend to judge women based on how much they make. The bad news for rich women, men don't tend to judge women based on how much they make. lol That is why being a successful career woman doesn't effect a man's opinion of the woman much. So if that is her biggest selling point, then she doesn't have much to offer the guy. Most men simply don't value that trait in women.

    The only way a man will care about a woman's money is if he is poor and needs the money. Most rich woman aren't going to want a poor man anyway. This is why rich women, and poor men are the least likely people to get married.
