Dating different social classes
According to her, while cross-class pairings or relationships seemed egalitarian, it was complicated and required a lot of work.
Rarely is any marital relationship completely even in its power-sharing dynamics – almost every marriage has a partner who is empowered to take more important decisions than the other.

Anyone who has dated someone outside their social class can affirm that there are strange tensions and inevitable speed bumps that come with these kinds of relationships. For instance, your boyfriend could be from a high-class, wealthy family while you come from a working-class family with less money.
Bisi spoke from experience, seeing as she had married into a super wealthy home despite being from a lower middle-class home.
Prior to her marriage there had been endless disputes over her husband marrying down, and her family’s wealth being all too recently acquired.
