If you don’t have money, you’d better not get married… Marriage isn’t something that you do because you have money and you don’t do because you don’t have money. It depends on each individual. However, you can’t be confident unless you earn a living. It’s difficult for you to be respected if you don’t earn money.
Some youngsters found this offensive since they’re struggling really hard to find work but can’t. I see his point about people gaining respect by earning money, but I don’t necessarily think that has to be a prerequisite for marriage.
