But not their income?
I wouldn't judge someone based on their income as long as they are happy with what they are doing.
For real though... it doesn't matter but it also does matter. I thought love was enough to sustain, and maybe it is if BOTH partners are hard working contributors.
Yes, but it goes beyond them being hard working contributors. They have to share the same life view, have the same goals. Or there will always be conflict. This is much easier when you're young because people really haven't developed a life view. They haven't faced the trials of life yet. As you get older you tend to get set in your ways.I mean what one may consider hard working another may not. I worked my ass off in my 20's and 30's and now i have no desire to work anymore than 40 hrs. A week. If i had to i would. Does that make me lazy? It's a matter opinion i guess.
Credit score is harder to tell... I'm debt-free, have a few grand in assets and cash and my credit score is terrible

I always say "character above all". But that's the point either CAN point to a character flaw. But generally i agree with you.
yeah it can do that but when it comes to money i kinda gravitate to people that dont give a fuck anyway... also someone could do a more credible vocational job that doesn't pay well or someone can have debts following them from a past phaze in their life like the story i saw on a married mother of three who was being persued in the American courts for an inflated university fee debt of 160000 bucks... alll that said about her character was that she changed tack and decided to be a great mum instead of a career woman
It's not how i judge people all kinds of reasons people end up in debt some is excusable some isn't i try to look at the whole person. It's more of a question to get a rougj consensus on how people think. I welcome all opinions ( wherher i agree or not). :)
Well everyone has their own criteria of what is important. I don't care about income or debt as long as I am not expected to pay for it. The vast majority will often say they don't care but actually do, the next level will say they don't care as long as they are 'stable' or 'responsible' which is a polite way of saying yes they absolutely do care but don't want to sound like a gold digger. Then there are those that will say they want someone who can support them and kids, or just outright gold diggers who want a glam life. Overall everyone judges differently.
True, but i guess the reason i ask this question is i hear women touch on whether a guy is a good gamble or not based on his income. Nobody wants to live in poverty. Worst of all if tjey're shouldering more rhan their share of the load. When you're young no one has anything typically. But as you get older, such as me in my 40's you've traded potential for realized gains along wirh baggage, we all have it, and yes of course debt. Point is dating as a mature adult people aren't generally starting from the same spot like when you're young.
