Priyanka, who writes the vGossip blog, reckons there will be a shift in the hierarchy of professions when it comes to eligibility for marriage.
Citigroup, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, Rothschild, Goldman Sachs, ABN Amro, HSBC and Deutsche Bank were probably the hottest bank brands that were most sought after on any online matrimony or dating platform. A profile with the above names on it underlined the fact that the guy had both, education and a suave lifestyle.
Today, ofcourse, the theory does not hold ground.
My friend, informs me, that investment banking groom valuation has taken steep fall in the matrimony market, both online and offline. On the online sites, ‘Friend’ request for Investment bankers have seen a decline and all the filters are being applied to them. And despite their supply, to-be brides/friend do not want to invest their life time in such a risky venture. Who can blame them?
So what’s a girl to do?
Who could possibly gain ground in the matrimony race?
They will never go out of fashion. Sub-prime crisis, IT slump or stock market crash, they are immune to all. Rather heart surgeons and cardiologist will be making a killing (pun intended) out of investment bankers in the current scenario.
In hard times, solid reliability always looks more attractive.
Perhaps I should ask her where she thinks management consultants come in the dating league-table.
Hmmm. Then again, perhaps not……….
