    Earning Millions or having a net worth, worth millions?

    Most of us will never have that much
    Precisely my friend. That's just excess. 200k a year is more than enough.

    Tbh, sometimes I'd quite fancy being a housewife to a rich man. I've ended up with a binman as a boyfriend though, so we'll just have to make do until I either get a decent paying admin job, or one of us wins the lottery *fingers crossed* :please:
    I'm sorry but I have to ask, how did your parents accept you having a binman as a boyfriend?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but your parents are Nigerian right?

    She probably tells them that he has a job and works hard. Therefore making him better than a lot of other people out there.

    He is just an analyst though. That's entry level , he probably applied for the new analyst program and with an Msc from Imperial entry level isn't too shocking.

    I'm more intrigued that it's NYC. I wonder how he convinced them to sponsor him.....

    A Brit getting a job in NYC off the bat without doing an MBA in the US is odd.

    Or perhaps he worked in London office then moved.
    I know it's not straight off the bat, but my sister moved to NYC after about 5 years of working in London. No Masters, no PHD, not even Russel group Uni. He must be a very hard worker

    Yes, my parents are nigerian. My mum's not bothered, my dad is a little bothered by the fact that he lacks ambition, but at the end of the day they're happy that at least he works and treats me well, that's the important thing. They want me to have my own good career anyway so that I don't have to rely on anyone

    Well, I'll admit, he's probably not what they pictured as a perfect partner for me (he's also white and Scottish, instead of black and Nigerian), but oh well, what exactly can they do about it? Kick me out the house? They know I'm an adult and it's up to me to make my own decisions and to live my life the way I want, and they're happy for me as long as I'm happy and with a good man :yep:

    I'm 23.

    Trolling? :confused: Being a binman is a legit job. Where would we all be if there was no one to collect our trash? I can understand some people will be snobbish about it, but meh, you say what you want, it doesn't bother that much tbh. It's that hard to find a decent man in this world, so why be fussy about what job they do as well, when that's hardly important in a relationship above over aspects? Well, to me anyway. He works hard, that's the important thing; I'd much rather him than a lazy job-shy benefit scrounger

    I think money does help towards relationships to an extent. I am not talking millions though I mean just enough to be comfortable so to never feel restricted by your finances in respect to the type of lifestyle you want. So say if a couple enjoyed going on a few holidays a year travelling, donating to charity, going out to dinners and theatre shows then it massively helps if they both had the funds to enjoy these things yet not feel limited by the money they earn. This doesn't have to be millions.

    Financial hardship is a common reason for divorce and break ups. So I would agree money helps. On the other hand I think earning too much money often comes with having to put in long hours being away from home and being responsible for an organisation and the staff you hire. This in itself can also put strain on the relationship.

    At the moment she is using a working Visa, and applying for a green card + American passport through a new job, but the process is slow because colleagues can be a nasty piece of kit sometimes.

    Her company basically organised the whole thing, since she is well known for her hard work

    She has similar goals to you as well regarding a husband, maybe I can give her some of your advice to speed the whole marriage process along :lol:
