Ah, remember the Good Old Days, when people married for money, power and status? Marriages were essentially a business partnership arranged by the relatives, designed to increase or solidify family or personal fortune and prestige. Love had nothing to do with it; people found that elsewhere.
Of course, these days, couples still get married for many of the same reasons but they aren't quite so overt about it. There's almost always a pretense of love, even when it's masking more practical designs. Now let's review your relationship history. Did even your earliest relationships smack of status-building? Did you always fall for the most popular boy or girl in your school? Long for the football captain or head of the cheerleading team? Your boss's son or daughter? If the answer to any of these questions is 'yes,' then it's likely that you're falling into the partnership-for-prestige paradigm. It's not that this is entirely a bad thing, but it's good to be clear about it. How unfortunate if you let someone believe that you actually love them when all you want is their money, or vice versa. Come to think of it, you might be better off waiting until you're a little older to marry, when you've developed your own personal wish-list for a partner instead of the one you inherited from your family.
