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.

It is wrong, always, everywhere, and for everyone, to believe anything upon insufficient evidence.” —W. K. Clifford (1845–1879), “The Ethics” My take is belief should be proportional to the evidence.
