Didn’t we see a number of Vor buds who married rich plebes and retained their Vor status? I think that there was canon about 20-year men with Vor girls. (If the girl was mid-twenties and the man late 30’s, that’s not too squickish.)

Yes, women could gain or retain (when marrying) Vor status only by obtaining a Vor husband.
