If a girl wants to marry someone who will remain in learning for as long as possible and wouldn't take tzedaka if possible to avoid, how does she think it will work? Will the money rain down from the sky? Perhaps if a girl (before marriage or early on) is encouraged to get a real career for herself she may actually be able to have a husband who is zocheh to remain in learning and even be able to concentrate on the Torah!
I do know that this isn't something that everyone could or should do, but why is a girl afraid that she won't get a shidduch she wants, namely someone who has a cheshek to learn, just because she wants it enough to act on it? (I'm referring to someone who takes real courses, maybe even attending a real college so that she can support a family.)
