My girlfriend is from a fairly wealthy and religious indian family. Her parents purchased an apartment for her, paid for her very expensive education, and support her financially while she is in school. She is finishing her psychology doctorate and will be moving away soon and wants me to go with. With her education she will make a good living starting out, but has never really had to work for much in her life. At least financially. She works hard at school, but is a bit lazy at times elsewhere. Her brother is also my age, and makes about 500k a year and very well off, I feel I am compared to him a lot from her and her family. Her parents do not love the fact that I am white, but their "fortune teller" told them it would not work with an indian guy for her, so they are more open to it now, and at least I am not black... which is a huge taboo for a conservative indian family. But they have "accepted" me because I am white, make 6 figures (barely lol) and have a job they can be proud to tell others.

I am from a middle class, white, catholic midwest family. We didn't have a lot of money growing up, but my parents went back to school and managed to carve out a comfortable middle class life for us. Eventually making about 100k each. Recently retired. I went to Art School, lol I know. But studied graphic design. I didn't make much starting out, but I now work in the tech field as a UX designer and make about 100k a year. Have paid the majority of my 100k in student loans with a bit of help from my parents, and now am looking to buy my first house at 34. I have the potential to make up to 200-300k in the future.

She has mentioned that she wanted to marry a rich guy, that she doesn't want to work much, and judging by how wealthy and successful her family is, it is a bit intimidating for me. I worry If I don't reach the peak of my earning potential she will get bored or try and find someone more wealthy than me.

What do you guys think about this situation? What should I do?
