It has some effect. If I have poor conditions of sharing time and space, I will be likely to put off marriage. However, I think money is not the only factor for good relationship. More important thing is a shared belief that marriage requires devotion and sacrifice as well as temporary emotional connection.

Yes. It is a major problem personally and I believe for all low income persons. For instances, I would have like to go to Philippine or U.S to meet my dates. The 7.6% who say finances can't affect it, are millionaires! I wish that they send me some bugs .lol.

I tend to try to share the expenses when first getting to know someone -- why should he carry the financial burden? But, I have other responsibilities that also need to be met so cannot offer fancy dinners or high price concerts -- I have had some people challenge that I had offered to share expenses but was not doing a full 1/2 of the expenses -- my reaction was to say so long! Many women I know do not share any of the cost for dating (but do buy a new dress or outfit for each date LOL so there is some cost there! )

I have paid for the lives of two husbands, I made two husbands go from zero income to multi-millionaires. My last husband stole my entire inheritance and retirement income. I do fine on my own, however, I am tired of taking men on vacations, dinners, paying for cars. I want someone who cares about me and won't leave because of my money.

Yes, No matter how much money women make these days, they still seem to expect us to make what we used to before they took their high paying office jobs. Said of a local insurance co. My neighbor, "I can't believe they pay me 50k/yr, I make bank deposits!"
