Lol, what make you think I'll leave for mehr? I'm cheap but not that cheap. Honestly, I used to only be interested in Somali woman but as i get older and meet new people my range is widening.I'm not saying that at all. You will find reasonable xalimo's if you look for them, so don't get discouraged. Work on youraelf and be the best version if yourself and you will attract quality women. Believe me.
If she is a good person, she will be worth giving your money to. Don't forget, she will be raising your future children and supporting you. That is something money can't buy and we are worth more than our mehrs.
If you want to marry out, no problem. Nust amke sure she is Muslim and if good character. I see no issue with that, but don't marry out just because of mehr That's crazy.
