Girls say they want a guy who makes at least $X salary. I have no problem with this and wish to join; I want a woman, if I were to take one, who made at least my salary or better with the reasoning being that this means she's ambitious, frugal, intelligent, and practical.
Is that incorrect thinking, that a person who is of some wealth would hold those traits? Mind you, she had to make that much annually; a wealthy female who inherited the estate is of no use to me.

I think it shouldn't be about particular amounts, but I think it is perfectly reasonable to seek a partner to is able to contribute to the household in an equal or at least significant manner. And it's absolutely fair for men and women to hold similar standards. In fact, I think it's ridiculous for anyone to hold standards that they themselves do not meet, male or female. For example, I don't think it is right for a person, male or female, to only be willing to date a person who makes a certain dollar amount a year, when they only make half of that or don't bring in an income at all. That's some grade-A bullshit right there. Different story, of course, if after getting together they start a family together and decide as a couple that one can and should stay home while the other works.1
