Is she good looking, has a big boat, plenty of female assistants, even a cabana boy for her for when I am tired of doing her. An apartment in Paris, another one in Rio and one overlooking Time Square. Would I marry her. Fvck no. I am too stupid to take charity. Besides, happiness is where you are and make out it, you start compromising your life all there will be left is shit and excuses. Live, pursue, enjoy, even if what you reaped was just some nasty water in the dessert during an adventure race.

People sell their souls everyday for money...recently someone I loved very much...walked away after 8 good years...for the lust of money....happens...one thing that will draw the true content of one's character out into the open...is the LUST for MONEY...troubled times...broke...and an offer of relief??? Ah hell yeah...just pretend it is LOVE...and dump all that has been good and true blue for you, wipe it right off your shoe..........who needs loyalty, devotion and tried and true...when you can drive a nice pick up pulling a nice boat and wear the diamond stud earring and PRETEND you EARNED every dime!! Be ALL THAT AND A BAG OF CHIPS!! Take on the 'high brow attitude....look down your nose at all the low life" and forget you were ever anything but the piece of plastic you are now..BOUGHT AND PAID FOR!!

No I would not marry for money.
You still gotta with them, with them, and take on the whole family .
Money does not mean somone is a good person ; of course depending on how they got it and what they do with it.
Money is the root of all evil and cannot buy true-love or happiness.
I choose to fall in-love with the man , not the money.
If he is rich.......He can tell me after we are married.
Then he will know for sure that I married him and not the money.
Of course it would be nice not to live paycheck-to-paycheck and for once not have to look at a price tag.
I raised a Son by myself without support, whom I recently lost .
It has been a struggle, but I manage.

OH!! and TRUE LOVE has no age limit...no boundaries, it is unconditional....and has NOTHING to do with age.....money can make a mockery of it....but, it can't destroy it...and long after one has wiped their feet of the "real thing" for the lust of money...long long after...he/she will remember way back when...when they were of 'value' in someones heart...back when he/she didn't have a dime......
when the money runs out...and the LUST isn't as becoming anymore...they will remember all they threw away.....and it will hurt more than any troubles they ever had because they were 'out of money'......when they realize they are way way 'out of love'....

I certainly would marry someone w/out money.
Would I marry someone w/out money, that didn't think working should be expected?
NO.
It isn't money...it is the transparent opportunist looking for a 'free ride'...looking to 'better thier lives' (as my ex described his actions)...VIA someone else's money.

gettoelf your headed for a troublesome relationship. I would marry the person I feel is right for me...money or NO money. Some of the happiest people in this world has no or very little money. The love of money brings many pains in life.

There's a nice saying where I came from... A person is asked: wouldn't you want to get rich or marry rich? And the response is: "It would be great if coffins had pockets!" In other words, if you marry for money, your life is briefly exciting and than you are really alone again...You're left with all this money and then you die and nobody cares except maybe your children and other family fighting over the iheritance like vultures...If that's the only reason you decide to tie the knot, I'm sorry, you're a gold digger! You are an empty shell...

I would not marry for money.

But I'm a guy, it's ok for me to socially not care about how much money my potential bride brings into the picture. I accept though that how much money I can offer makes a huge difference in my range of options in terms of marriage candidates. I also accept that if I marry someone around my socioeconomic level, that there is more common ground to share and the relationship might have a better chance.

Given the reality of modern marriage and the rates of divorce, it's near financial suicide to marry someone who is not around your income level. That's not to say a person should rule it out, but it's something you have to think long and hard about as a male.

In an ideal world, if two people love each other, nothing else should matter. But as a guy, I know other things do matter, they matter a great deal. I wish it was different but wishing doesn't change the world.

Interesting comments, maybe the thread should say; Would you marry only for money?

Kind of a loaded question, and naturally and the majority of folks would say no . I have only been in love twice,once for money and once for love.

And was there a lessen to be learned when it was all said and done? Yes, to me there was,
we all need to make money,sell,buy,barter,etc to exist in this society, and being in a relationship where money has the highest priority it does get very insensitive, money is power and control and cannot substitute for love and $ does not have a conscious, and if one thinks you can shower the person with homes,cars, gifts,etc without true love, well guess what, you will always feel emptiness inside.
Money helps but it does buy love... in true love it is a happy balance and respect.

When I was in the Peace Corps many moons ago, I worked in very poor conditions according to our standards, yet the love was there and this is what touched me in my experience there.

This is a paradox and I quote, "When I have nothing,I have everything to give"

Again....I don't believe it is MONEY...it is the LUST for money...
When someone is having a sudden extreme hard time financially....and they begin making decisions based on offers of MONEY and RELIEF due to these hard times....
When they suddenly go for the MONEY and create a new relationship with the person with the MONEY......they've LUSTED.....they've allowed their current situation to blind them and control the situation..."falling in love" suddenly because the money will fix all the 'ails' them. It is a 'band aid"....some can live their whole lives with a 'band aid' existance....never looking any deeper than their wallet...or someone else's....empty loveless lives.........

I think this question has morphed into a new question…for love or money??? Does it matter? Some say love doesn’t buy happiness. Now you have to have money in the first place to even make that statement. After all every where I go people are asking for my money. Others say love endures all things. Then why are divorce rates so high?

Truth is you can fall OUT of love just as fast as spending money. So love yourself and make a million!!! You can always date from time to time. You’ll find it’s far less frustrating and much safer both emotionally and financially.

yeah i sort of agree to that i saw this lady today she was young and beautiful and yet her hubby was an old guy plus she looked realy sad and wondered if she regrets being with him, she probably likes the comfortable life sure but she didnt look happy, money doesnt make u happy they say but happiness generates financial success and therefore you can have love n money. happiness is a a moment in time its not everlasting just like sex etc i think other factors contribute to a fall in a relationship like age, who's domineering in the relationship, rich people tend to walk over people because they feel powerful example PAUL MCCARTNEY, GREG NORMAN see what happened to their wives, other factors are they have to many expactations of their partner to be, like a noble prince etc so wishful thinking alway leads to disappointment.

I'm sorry but for me money doesn't make the person....
I don't care what you drive.. what you own.. and did I say that money just doesn't interest me... its what is on the inside that counts... I've been poor all my life and I'm used to it... I can be happy just the way I am... no thanks..
