Interesting. I might need to look at couples outside of my college area.

I would say more looks than money.

I think they're generally on par with BOTH looks & financial status. I think people generally pair up with someone in their economic class. I don't think women marry "up" in terms of money, as a rule, no matter how beautiful they may be.

older you get , the less picky you can afford to be , goes more for women but men too as the best women are usually taken by the time they are thirty at the very latest

Early in life (ages 15-25) couples are paired on looks and popularity. After that they start to pair on the woman's looks and the guy's income.

so what are you saying, that women after say 40 or 50, are just out of luck??? they get no one, or do they have to get an 80 year old blind guy who can't see them???? or some super ugly loser guy with money??
sorry,this is too cold and dead and nasty for me. I believe in true love, and that can mean any sort of looks. You know,that thing which is warm and fuzzy and spiritual, and defies your ordinary worldly assumptions, it is called LOVE?????????
and the only kind of guy or girl who attaches themselves to someone for "popularity", must be a narcissist. sorry. even when i was a teenager, that would NEVER have done it for me!

LOOKS are there for identification, not just to look at something pretty. If two people belong together,they will like each other's looks: and if they're really aware and tuned in they will be able to identify their mate. Even if they have a few wrinkles.

If they were made for each other and are destined by God (yep, that's right) to be man and wife, then they will really notice things about each other that are attractive, even if not so "new". They will notice things that are surprisingly compatible.

That seems horribly mistaken. My mom married my dad way back in the day. She was a model and he was wealthy (but also good looking). My GF was too young to have any money at all of her own and I'm very well off, she's gorgeous. Do you think an average girl is going to get with a wealthy good looking dude on average? I really doubt that! Of course hot girls have a great chance of marrying up. Duh!

Pretty much out of luck yes. If you're 50 and a woman you better find an ugly dude with a big heart who is broke as f&@$ so he won't mind how ugly and washed up you are. Ha ha ha just joking
