Could it be about the benjamins?

Reminds me of a quotation that I've seen attributed to Mae West, Sophie Tucker, Gertrude Stein, and others: "I've been rich and I've been poor.  Rich is better." From Liza Mundy in TIME Ideas.

Study: Men Are More Attracted to Women with High Salaries
But a growing body of research shows that while there may have once been a stigma to making money, high-earning women actually have an advantage in the dating-and-marriage market. In February 2012, the Hamilton Project, a Brookings Institution initiative that tracks trends in earnings and life prospects, found that marriage rates have risen for top female earners — the share of women in the very top earning percentile who are married grew by more than 10 percentage points — even as they have declined for women in lower earning brackets. (The report also suggested that the decline in those lower brackets may be because women can support themselves and are dissuaded from marriage by the declining earnings of men.)
