There is another level of complexity to this. One I personally witness often in male identity. Primarily being your income as a source of attraction for potential dates. Many men who try and puzzle out their lackluster dating lives see income and wealth as clear metrics for gauging how easily and effectively they can find partners to begin with. Having the money to buy attractive things you’d associate high status with is par for the course in many dating advice circles. As for how this sort of paradigm would be redefined is anyone’s guess but if your desire is to be successful it needs to be done on a level that breaks the narrative both on a marriage level and on an attraction level.
