It used to be that you dated the blue-collar construction worker, and married the white-collar lawyer. However, recent studies and surveyed have shown that there is a new trend of white-collar women marrying blue-collar men, and, when you come to think about it, it does make a bit of sense.

First of all, as women are able to study and advance in high paying careers, they are now freer to follow their heart. After all, chemistry is chemistry, and has nothing to do with your background. Many women also have a lot of trouble being themselves are immigration lawyers in Parramatta. They believe that they have to prove themselves to be treated as an equal, and find it hard to relax. With blue-collar men, they are under less pressure, and find it easier to relax. This also works in reverse: white-collar men are more likely to be uncomfortable dating a woman who has a better job or earns more than them. Blue-collar men tend to be more relaxed, and so women feel more comfortable around them.

A couple can have the same drive and aspirations for their career, and happily support each other in their different fields. This is the case with many white and blue-collar couples, and this support is vital in a firm relationship. Many white-collar women find that white-collar men tend to be less supportive of their careers if they are achieving to the same level that they are. This sort of competitiveness is destructive, and something most women would seek to avoid. So, in this case, a wild differing in fields of work can be a good thing.

Differences and similarities are important in any relationship, and so while a man and a woman may have very different jobs and social networks, if they are connected through similar likes and drives, they can look beyond the ‘class’ stereotypes. These stereotypes no longer drive our society in the same way they used to, and so those in the dating circle are generally no longer afraid of looking beyond their own white-collar or blue-collar standing. Of course, there are those exceptions to the rule, but with white and blue-collar dating and marriage on the rise, it is safe to assume that society is slowly changing and becoming more accepting of these difference in background. Society realises that what is most important is a person’s heart and personality, not their job or position in life.

In the end, whether a person is a dating a blue-collar or white-collar person is irrelevant. If two people have a real connection and a solid system of support, then the differences in ‘class’ and career are a mute point. Dating and marriage is about personality and common goals, not backgrounds and careers. It is because of this unrestrictive societal belief that white-collar single ladies are now happily dating and marrying blue-collar men.
