Of course not!!

What is the point in marrying someone I have no particular interest in, putting my all into the legal bargain I made , and then walking out with nothing after all the time and effort I put in?? That would be ridiculous!!

I would have to ask two questions before/if I would marry for money.
1. How much?
2. and the most important one is How close to death are they?


Good points.

The only question I'd add is:

3. How big is your butt?

Sorry Iago...it means that you can run out of money....but when love walks into your life..that's all that matters and hopefully LASTS LONGER THAN MONEY! (play on words) :)

Hey, thanks for clarifying. I was mighty confused, 'cause from what I've heard in a few cases is that when the money runs out, so does the spouse.

And, well, it's a nice idea that love lasts longer, but it really is being a bit too hopeful, methinks. We like to think so, but reality always has that nasty way of showing up and knockin' on the door.

You won't get any bashing from me. I think that self-professed gold-diggers and prostitutes are amongst the most honest women around. They exchange money for sex and are upfront and honest about it. Perfect! I see absolutely nothing wrong with stating your intentions and allowing the other party to choose how or whether they want to be involved.

(realizing, of course, that you just MAY have been joking)

Haven't read the posts here, but thought I'd throw in something I read today.

Multi-millionaire man in his mid-forties is being sued by various women for playing them (apparently about a dozen at a time). His photo shows him to be homely with a HUGE belly. Photos of 4 of his female partners show them to be beautiful and petite.

I wonder how many of these women would have looked twice at him if he wasn't stinking rich?

Perhaps I'm wrong, and they were all seduced by his lovely personality.

Personally, I have always avoided dating men with excess amounts of money. I have been fiercely independent since my teens and I have made it a point to be able to provide for myself and my family. This has left me free to choose a man for qualities other than what may appear in his wallet.

You're right to think that way!The truth is you can love a rich person as well as a poor one."It's good to be the King" and the kings wife LOL.

Now it's my turn to get bashed.....

No , l would not marry for money. Money can't make up for a loveless marriage. l want passion and the whole thing.

Well, if you look closely, I did not refer to you specifically as a gold-digger or a prostitute.

I was commenting, however, on your statement that you would only marry 'if he was rich' or something like that.

Who knows if your comment was made in jest or not? Only you.

I was merely commenting on your reference to marrying a guy with money. If you are serious, good for you. That's honest. Prostitutes are honest about their relations with men as well. Perfect.

As far as ignorance being bliss, I've seen it many times and I'm pretty sure it must be.

Cheers.

Edit to add:

I re-read your first post.... If you would only marry someone for his money, how IS that different than a gold-digger? And, again, not knockin' the honesty if that's how you feel. I like it. And, if you are just jokin' somehow it didn't translate... darn the written word at times.

I wouldn't get married only for money, but I surely wouldn't marry anyone who isn't financially responsible. That doesn't mean they have to be rich, it means they know how to manage their money.
Most people who say money doesn't matter are only fooling themselves, look at how many divorces happen over issues directly or indirectly because of money!!!!!!! I think only 2 types of people don't care about money, those that have more than they will ever spend and those that have none at all.
So my point is if there are any real rich women here feel free to contact me, I don't hate you for having money

If I didn't love the person, nothing else would matter to me. Period. Money enough to float a boat or tater-sack poor. Love is all.

Seems to me you have nullified your own question. The idea of marrying just for money is to get as much of that money as possible. If you toss in that little previso of not getting any of it, you remove the motivation to marry for the money. So I ask you now, What's the point of your question?

> rich people tend to walk over people because they feel powerful example
> PAUL MCCARTNEY, GREG NORMAN see what happened to their wives.

They got extremely rich off of someone else's creativity and talent with little effort?



yeah true but remember greg normans wife stood by him he's the one that cheated so in short he did walk over her, people with money tend to do that nearly 90% of the time, as for paul mccartney his first wife she died of cancer and most relationships that end in that particular way are from stress and repression of feelings so death is their only way out a study has shown that look it up if you dont believe me, some rich guys have it coming because they are too selfish n I dont mean by giving her lots of money or diamonds but by being a tight wad by not even giving her a cup of coffee some guys are jerks to their women.
As for his second wife he had that coming but even she was a victim of his greediness.
The man has always been the provider for women and they have been the support for us men, its just the way it is even in the animal kingdom look at some birds like the weaver bird she will appreciate you if you care for her just remember NO FINANCE, NO ROMANCE!
Also remember our times have changed so people think women are gold diggers but forget men can be too. example OPRAH WINFREYS boyfriend i forgot his name but you get the picture.

Money is NOT in fact the root of all evil. The love of money over people is the root of all evil.

I wouldn't marry for money, but I'm not going to marry someone who's lack of responsibility and/or effort has caused them to be penniless either. Certain aspects of a woman's character which are appealing to me (intelligence, work ethic, dynamic risk taker) are going to naturally lead them to be financially successful.
