The no fork thing I get.
Dating only within the same socioeconomic background (however that's define), wouldn't be my choice.
I'm not sure your last point follows, though. Maybe it depends on age, but certainly when I was younger I knew plenty of folks who came from the same general upper-middle-class socioeconomic background as me but had wildly disparate current financial means, due to career choices and the like.
My wife's family had considerably more money than mine. When we started dating, I was fresh out of law school, working for a big law firm, making stupid amounts of money. She, having years before given her dad the finger and gone off to art school, was working as a gallery assistant and getting paid bupkis. The financial disparity wasn't an issue for me, but it was for her for a while.
