Context: Indian female seeing guys for arranged marriage
I have never believed in marrying for money/status. But I can already see a difference in standard of living between me (BTech in India, MS in US, working an avg job on h1b in Bay) vs my friends
(case 1 - BTech in India then married a doctor or guy working in tier 1 company for a few years in the US.
case 2 - MS in US then married a guy earning way higher than them). They now have a better standard of living than I do.
I have declined arranged marriage or dating proposals from rich guys because I didn't like them too much. But my friends keep telling me I have been stupid to do that, since money does buy comfort and reduces the daily struggles.
Should I encash on the skewed up ratio of desi guys vs girls in the Bay? Doesn't feel ethical to do so. Please someone tell me I am right. And then how do I get over the feeling when I see not-so-deserving friends (in my personal opinion) lead a better lifestyle than I do because they chose the easier route?
May be odds be ever in your favor.
