Most Helpful Guy
The thing is, the higher earning person tends to lose out, but people also hide their money and such so it can be tough. What it tends to come down to is a good lawyer.
Now if you'll notice, women avoid lesser earning men like the plague. Ever wonder why "career women" are always single? Well if this "career woman" earns 60k, all potential dating candidates who makes 60k and lower suddenly aren't "worth dating" to her. She wants a "successful man." Truth is, she doesn't wanna lose anything in a divorce. If she cheats on this future husband, she wants to be rewarded for it, not punished. This is basically how a lot of "women" are viewing "equality." Bring up a prenup and suddenly you're such a horrible guy when the truth is, she never loved you and she just wants to profit off of you.
Stories like yours are everywhere. Less and less guys are getting married. All these girls with their wedding fantasies won't settle for the 10000+ white knights out there who are willing to fulfill their fantasy because they don't make enough money.
