I'm in a similar situation to you (economic downturn) some sisters will likely refuse you due to your financial status.
Its always quite a problem where parents are concerned.
I've faced such obstacles myself.
There are however some more open-minded sisters out there, and personally i think its a great sign of a sisters character if she's looking at more than just your financial status.
I'm not disregarding the responsibility of the husband as the main financial provider however, but that said, there are ample ahadith to support that a man should be selected based on his piety, not his financial status.
One of the hadith (i believe) is posted in one of these forums by brother Eemo, who seems to have left now sadly, since he often posted interesting articles and anecdotes.
