    The simplest bit of advice and the most obvious is that you could always go back to school and take a course in a field that will let you earn more money or simply change jobs now to one that currently meets your academic qualifications if you are not happy with how much you are earning now.

    Money is not everything in life, though. It's what you do with your life that matters most, after all.

    A lot of the time the most obvious steps are the ones worth pursuing.

    I'm a little confused. Why is it that you need to earn 'top dollars' in order to get married? Is it because the cost of living where you live is incredibly high or simply that you FEEL you need to earn top dollars in order to be worthy of marriage? For starters, women attracted only to money and/or a successful image are no good. Furthermore, to earn very high incomes often involves long hours and lots of effort which can dampen the quality of married home life (neglected spouse/kids etc.). Personally, I don't see how an average working income wouldn't be able to support an average partner and average family life. Of course you won't be able to have a trophy 'Barbie' as a wife or multiple mansions but that doesn't mean you can't be happy. At the root of it, I think you just have to recognize there will ALWAYS be people doing better than you and people that are doing worse. I would advise you to simply look to find and only marry someone that loves you for you first and foremost, not for how big your paycheque is.

    I've got this in spades. My husband killed himself and left me financially ruined. Then along came the current political and economic climate which has taken the rest. I expect to be homeless soon. I can't even afford food.
