Chas VeShalom they should date someone poor

While the writer's topic here is about lying for shidduch purposes, something else caught my eye:
"The groom was from a 'good family'; his father is head of a large hospital unit. The bride is also from a 'good family.' Her father has a dental clinic, which employs around a dozen employees. His father is a professor, hers a doctor, it seemed like they were two peas in a pod. My friend only knew the mothers, but the similar socioeconomic status and background seemed an adequate indication for a good match."
Really? Socioeconomic status is the basis of a good match? Chas VeShalom that a rich person should date a poor one.
