Survival

I am working 80 hours a week and am barely getting by in this City. Between rent, cost of food, and everything else its like I am saving barely anything at the end of every month. I don't care what anyone else thinks I need a guy that makes decent money. I can't marry for just love.

I make decent money & would also like someone who makes decent money next to me so we can live a better life financially than just getting by month to month like you mentioned. What's your IG maybe we'd hit it off?

Yes financial life skills is part of our survival necessity

But you are leaning toward the 'love of money' rather than the love of a truly loving partner who brings into the marriage the combination of both love and sensible life skills.

I find it impossible to believe that you work 80 hours a week.

When I was 18 I worked on construction for 65 hours a week and it nearly killed me.

People are going to have to realize that living in Vancouver is for the rich. If you want a home that you own and some financial peace of mind, in addition to real peace of mind, start considering smaller cities/towns in BC or some of the other provinces.

Marry for love and all the other shit like having all you and said guy and possible family will need now and always will find you. Marry for money ... and well how shall I... oh i know you ever watch divorce court?

My friend (smart, ambitious) is borderline on divorcing her husband who works part time. Two kids, condo, car insurance…..love does not pay the bills. Even mammals look for mates who provide ample resources.

ONLY marry for love. Couldn’t give a shit about their earning potential, absolutely NEVER.

Seeing as OP needs to work 80 hours- perhaps with some hyperbole- per week, it's a very safe bet that OP is working low paying jobs. Maybe in an office, answering phones and filing things, and/or working in stores- folding clothes and talking to people.
All in air conditioned and heated, comfortable places.

A very,very far cry from busting your guts out digging, hauling heavy loads, climbing around, etc all day long in the boiling sun or pouring windy cold rain.

OK OP

Assuming you are only making minimum wage at $15 an hour, is basically $30k a year and after taxes around $22k. So if you're working another full time job on top of that, you'll be pulling in $44k a year after taxes.
Are 1 bedroom apts/suites around for around $2k, so that leaves you with $20k a year for groceries etc.

Doesn't add up

The world is a big old mess.
Surviving is not living.
