This is quite a strange AMA -- are you expecting people to ask you to justify
'marrying down' in social class terms, or to explain how it happened? Or is the 'reveal' going to be that in fact you both met at Oxford? Proles do go there, you know. I did myself.

Like millions and millions of other couples around the world 🤷🏻♀️
Look, I’m not pissing on your chips to encourage a nasty pile on but it is quite a normal state of affairs. My last boyfriend was a trust fund millionaire, one of a long line educated at Harrow and lived in Chelsea. I’m the product of divorce, mum received benefits (until she went to university / got the job she wanted) lived in a council house till I was 13 and went to State school (albeit Grammar, darling 😉).
Why do you think you are different? Not meant in an arsey way - genuinely interested in your position.

Does it affect your everyday life ?
do you think it would have made a difference marrying someone of a similar background
I married someone who has had the same level of education and religion as me so I kind of think it shapes how we are together (not much conflict we literally earn the same money)
