Would you ever marry for money or make a partner's financial status a deal breaker in a relationship?
I never used to think i would... but now im starting to think maybe i will lol
yuh no kidding it's the only reason i ever WOULD get married
No, I would never marry for money because i know that I wont be happy ; yes you do need money to pay for bills and other expenses but it's not everything in life there are other things that are more important in life than money.it's so important that you feel complete before you meet someone rich and loaded; then someone can decide if he/she should marry for money.
Tough call...I fall in and out of love faster than I can even figure out my own emotions, and have absolutely no desire to get married. If I have a ton of fun, love, and receive love in return for years to come, but don't find somebody I can commit to FOREVER, then marrying for money might make sense. If I'm not in a 'till death do us part' relationship because I want to grow old with a person, then I might as well be in one that at least encourages financial security!
dunno maybe i would maybe i wouldn't. it all depends. if he is rich and nice and likes me then all the best for me and him but if he is sub-par rich and is very nice then i will still go for him. i need my man to be smart, handsome and nice to me.
Marrying for money is neither good nor bad. It just depends on how you see money in relationship to people. Its one thing to say money is not important but as self development speaker Zig Ziglar puts it "it ranks up there with Oxygen". I believe that money is more than a measurement of wealth. It is a representation of positive and negative. It measures our greed, ambition, view of others, our service, work ethic, temperament, desires,morality and ultimately our values. Money is a life tool used to reveal our deepest desires and intentions. I think we marry for more than money. We marry for all the stuff money means to us whether it is good or not.
Sure I would ..love is overrated and you cannot live on love..but with money you can live very well indeed..and have your "love" on the side..if you are very discreet no on need every know..if they find out..you would have the $$ to buy silence..perfect.
why would anyone marry a broke guy?
No, but financial security and stability is a priority for me. You'll ALSO have to be compatible emotionally.
Why would anyone marry someone for money? It's obvious you would never be happy, money cannot buy happiness. I'm 24 years old, I have a bit of debt, I'm living paycheck to paycheck, not struggling but I could be doing better financially. My boyfriend is doing the same, we are happily in love, and if we won the lottery we might enjoy travelling or buy a house and a car and all that, but we don't NEED it, we are doing okay and we are in love, and that's all that matters!!!
yes, but love doesn't pay the rent!
thats why we work, we have good jobs! we are not broke but we cant buy everything we want. we support each other. is money going to be there when you get home from work? is money going to kiss you goodnight? is money going to tell you they love you? is money going to be your shoulder to cry on? is money going to surprise you for a weekend getaway? is money going to hold your hand? is money going to love you unconditionally? is money going to be there for you, no matter what?didn't think so.
I'd rather marry for money. Sorry, but love doesn't pay the bills. I've dated too many broke losers to finally come to that conclusion.
Money can be a means of protection, however it comes as easily as it goes. Let's not forget that money is a good servant, but a bad master. Bottomline, a marriage based on money lacks substance and the fundamental and irreplaceable element that any marriage should have: love. For those women who prefer financial security, learn from the drive and struggle of our counterparts in developing countries. Become well-educated and financially independent prior to entering marriage, hopefully with your soulmate.
Nope. I'd rather work hard and earn it myself.
Well yes i would marry a man for money it doesn't mean that he has to be a millionaire. Its means someone that is well established in his life, someone that know what he want and i am sorry if you go back in time women use to choose a strong man who can hunt so that their future family can survive , today its a little different we need MONEY so that the family can survive. Everyone want their kids go to a good school, have a normal health care and and healthy food on the table !
No I wouldn't marry someone for money. I'm not selfish, spoiled, lazy or shallow. No self-respecting woman with substance or integrity would ever marry a man simply for his money.
It's true, love doesn't pay the bills, but money without love is like a prison.Why not take money out of the equation and just be financially responsible, smart about saving for yourself and not relying on a man to 'keep' you?Whoever pays, is in charge and makes the decisions. Do you want someone else be in charge of you? Or do you want to take charge of our own life?Without a doubt, I'd go for a similarly-minded, financially responsible man, but if you can't give as good as you get, you deserve what you get.
Now that you mention it, I think ill start looking for a rich man now...
money isn't there for you, and it definitely doesnt love you back...
Ive been thinking of than ever since the day I could learned the alphabets. Money can love you back, you just have to sit back and let it. The problem is most of us need an array of people to make us feel better about our existance, in my case, money does that and more. Oddly enough, I married for love, and although I have it, I think Ide be better with money.
hi how are you im amer from jordan
Marry for love not for money marriage relationship is always between two people belonging to the love of the type of sacrifice is very beautiful to sacrifice for the man and estimated what you do for him to marry is brought to you Saad marriage is not the diamond is for the money in one case: that is to marry a young man in the age of young people from a woman in old age and have a lot of money and thank you
Would never marry for money. Just want to be happy. Tks.
I am very hardup and can hardly make ends meet, but I have a wonderful family and I love my life. Don't need pity just need u guys to get off my back. lol.I love all my facebook friends and so want to wish everyone a merry christmas and a happy new year. Love u alllllll>
'Any woman who says that she would marry for money has NEVER BEEN IN LOVE, Real love. I feel sorry for people who would marry for money because when you say those words, till death do us part, its over, the life is gone and all the material objects get left behind. I would never marry for money, mind you I have had quite the array of rich men who pursued me from business men to professional baseball players and I was always smart enough to know that a man that defines himself by his money first will never prioritize his love, and a woman who married for money will never fall in love.'
'Yes, I would marry a guy for money. There is only one guy I would marry who I have been unable to get over for years, despite therapy and what not. I\x3bve dated other guys though. At this point, I don\x27t really care who I marry, they just have to treat me with respect, look good, and have a financially stable life since I am an independent and driven woman. Not that hard to find...'
