Do you always regard financial status as very important factor?

Financial status is one of a number of factors that must be considered in choosing a potential partner.

Anyone who says, "oh, the person is more important than money" is correct UP TO A POINT.

But in the end, their economic status MUST be considered, amongst other things.

One related factor also is if they have little money, how did this circumstance occur? Did their husband gamble the money away, for example? Or have they been physically incapable, due to something such as a car accident? Or are they simply a little lazy? Answering this will in turn give you an opportunity to learn more about the characteristics of the other person.

So the bottom line answer to your question is financial status is one of several important considerations about a person. It's not the most important factor to consider. Yet it's not the least important one either. It's in the middle.

If I were so afraid that my finances are such that that I could not take on a mate, I think that I may be the slacker. People live in all sorts of economic positions that do not dictate their happiness quotient . If a man brags how rich he is, and puts his money before his heart, he will get a gold digger. The same if a women puts in her introduction that she seeks a rich man,likes to travel etc-- and only makes a small salary as a clerk -- she better be a very good cook and have, well, other great skills.
Both of the above should be ready for a short, disappointing relationship . Taking care of your finances as well as a relationship is something only mature people can do. Love is blind. Sometimes if you think too much, you will screw it up. Relax.

Barry you at least mentioned some of the other factors briefly. Some people have gone through a divorce or more, and have lost everything in the divorce. So what do they do? Some will be pulling themselves up by their bootstraps and will be starting all over.....from scratch. The US is in an economic downtrend, people who thought they had security in their jobs are back to pounding the pavement, but at a certain age, when a man is middle age, who want's him, when they can hire 2 twenty somethings for half? Accidents are another factor, they can take an otherwise hard working guy and put him out of his regular work and he needs to find alternate means. I find it pretty funny when a woman with a HS education or even less is looking for a man who makes 100K or more, That just reaks of gold digger.
Some of the happiest people are not rich, don't live in a mansion, but are happy because they know their life gives them time to be with their family, and that is more important than the money. Some of the most miserable bastards I have ever met were rich, celebrity, or in high business positions, and they tend to be the most arrogant, and cheapest people on the planet who will dump on the working class.
You can have all the money you want, but when you have no home time, no family time, no time to do the simple things so what do you really have? ulcers, migraines, alcoholism, just to name a few. People have taken someone's financial status as a means to measure the worth of another individual, and they are dead wrong in their assumption.
Here's a case in point, real life, I personally know this. I know a person who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, had a maid growing up, get the picture? The man has no manners or consideration for his friends who are more loyal than his better-to-do colleagues. He will go to the house of a struggling friend or family's house, and uninvited, gorge himself ( and sometimes bring his son,) on their food that they have set for them to eat for 2 nights, cutting into their budget, and then have the audacity to complain about the food!! To those that cooked it, it was a nice home cooked meal.If he should offer you food, it may as well be dog food. His colleagues think he's a real piece of work, and I don't mean that in a nice way
A few years ago, I did a favor for some friends I hadn't seen or heard from for about 15 years who lost contact with their brother. their mother died, and they wanted to let him know she had passed. I found the brother, who was always in trouble, and he was in jail.I found where he was, how to get in contact with him, and they did. I gave the info to the brother, and he was very grateful, he was almost in tears that I would go out of my way to help. a couple of days later, I got a call from his twin sister ( who I had a thing for in High school) She thanked me so much for ding something like this out of the blue. We talked a couple more times about how our lives were, what we had, and were going through, and one of the things that she said, (and this is a 52 year old woman now) was this. She realized that after all of the mistakes in her life, the struggles of being a single mom, problems within her own family, What she said would have made her the happiest would be someone who loved her, and he didn't need to have a fancy house, just a roof over their heads, and food on the table. She realized that money isn't as important as having a good home life. She also had a couple of accidents that left her slightly disabled, and is dealing with the cards life dealt her. she also found someone that seems to make her happy, so I am happy for her.
This might be a bit long, but there are a few things to consider when starting a new relationship. And another is this for us older folks, we all had lives before we met a new love interest, and so did they. Expecting your life to be a life of the rich and famous is a fantasy for many. and for you ladies looking to marry a western man, it would be a good idea if you get some knowledge of what is going on in his country and decide are you really marrying for love? or are you marrying for money?
Me personally, I would take a poor farmers daughter, I like to have a garden anyways

I always thought that I would be best off with a beautiful but poor and hard working factory or farm girl. This type of woman I hope will appreciate whatever we have together rather than always want a bigger house or a more expensive car.

So for me, money is not a criteria whatsoever. I have had the opportunity to date someone insanely rich but choose to date someone poor instead. I don't need a yacht or a bmw to be happy.

No, anyone who says it does is lying. There is money laying everywhere.  If you want a lot or a little - you just need to know how to pick it up.
