* The Trope Image above is actually a well known fake viral image that appeared on Website/{{Reddit}} and an instigator of PoesLaw. The woman in the photo is Swedish actress, singer, and model Natacha Peyre. The guy next to her remains unidentified. (He's probably just a fan that she agreed to pose with for a photo op at one of her shows.) Hoaxes like this appear on Reddit a lot.

In historical eras, this used to be the rule between ''both'' parties; back then the now-rare male "fortune hunters" were much more common, owing to the bride's lack of say in the matter. This was particularly common in VictorianBritain, when many [[BlueBlood Peers]] found that their old way of life had [[ImpoverishedPatrician become unsupportable]] (particularly their [[BigFancyHouse country estates]]): their primary source of income had been agriculture, but the main crop (grain) could be far more cheaply grown in the United States, Canada, Russia, and (later) Australia where land was abundant, and with steamships it could also be imported so cheaply the importers could undersell the aristocrats even though they were bringing the stuff from the far side of the world. The aristocrats (after trying and failing to "fix" their problem with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corn_Laws protectionism]]) started losing income. As a result, many [[NobilityMarriesMoney young British nobles married the daughters]] of [[SelfMadeMan self-made industrialists and merchants]] (who had previously been seen as too low-class for the upper crust to marry), particularly American ones.[[labelnote:For instance]]Lord Randolph Churchill marrying Jennie Jerome, the daughter of a [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity New York]] banker - their name should sound familiar, as they're [[UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill Winston]]'s parents.[[/labelnote]] TheOtherWiki even [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_American_heiresses has a list]]. By the 20th century the male gold diggers almost disappeared (except for more villainous roles), and middle-class women were now getting married to richer men, establishing the current image of this trope.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': A light example in Donna Noble. She chooses to work a temping job at H.C. Clements in the city specifically because it's "nice and posh" over working as a full-time secretary for a photocopy business. Her mother Sylvia claims she's only doing in the hopes that she would "meet a man with lots of money and your whole life would change".

* In ''ComicBook/{{Drowntown}}'', Gina Cassel doesn't care that her courier business doesn't bring her riches, and refuses help from her rich boyfriend, Vincent Drakenberg, on the grounds that she wants to keep her independence. This view is not shared by her partner in the business, Izzy, who tries to seduce Vincent herself. It doesn't work ([[spoiler:or perhaps we just haven't seen it yet, since Izzy certainly seems to have prospered in the time since Gina's supposed death.]])
