One of the biggest mistake you can ever make as a man is for you to marry or date a lady just because she is rich or highly connected. That thought in itself is a poverty mentality.
Money or connection should not be your focus; you must love her first and ensure that marrying her will help you fulfil your purpose in life.
You will be limiting the repertory of giftedness God has placed in your life, and the power of greatness inside of you, if you think you can’t make it unless you marry someone who is richer or connected.
The Good book of wisdom said, He that finds a wife, finds a good thing and obtains favour from the Lord. It is not he who finds a rich or highly connected lady.
There is nothing bad about being married to a lady who’s well to do, but there is everything bad about marrying her for her substance. Your pursuit should be love and purpose, and not her wealth and good things of life she possesses.
If you are privileged to marry a lady who is richer or more connected than you are, your mission should not be to go into her life with the aim of collecting, you must be ready to give and make her life better. If she was in stage 3 by the time you step into her life, she should be in stage five in one year.
When the love is genuine, she will be more than willing to help you.
