If you are a physician, would you marry a truck driver?
I'm serious. Please no sarcasm.

Statistically men tend to marry down, as far as that is concerned. Poor men and rich women tend to remain single. No one wants to marry the poor men, and rich women price themselves out of a relationship by over estimating their own value.
I am not upper class, but I don't think I would want to marry if I were upper class. The laws can screw the guy over so bad that if I got married it would be in a country where the woman would not be rewarded by divorcing me. As far as dating goes, I have would have no problem dating the same woman for the rest of my life. I just wouldn't get married if I were rich, as that would turn me into a target under our screwed up legal system.0

My first reaction was "yes, of course, class shouldn't matter" and I do believe that's morally right. But when I think about it, I probably wouldn't marry someone 'lower class' if I were 'upper class', because I always prefer dating people I have a lot in common with. I don't think there's a large chance for the physician and the truck driver to have similar intelligence levels, to have similar hobbies and interests or to like to hang out with each others friends. Therefore I'll probably date someone of around the same 'class' as I am. Anything's possible though.2
