In this economy, you bet your ass I would marry for money...if I believed in marriage. If both consenting adults know what situation they are getting into, I don't see a problem. Everyone has a price, I'm just very expensive.

I would marry a man with money, WHO LOVE AND CHERISH ME AND THINK HIGHLY OF ME. ** Your qoute ," nothing goes in your name, you walk out with what you came in with.." So this hypothetical millionaire is marrying a woman for just a polite conversation ,no emotional / mental chemistry and showing her his assets that he has a 10 million dollars ? Yawn,, excuse me I have to read some novel of Danielle Steel, it makes more sense to me..

Life is way too short to marry for money. Everyday you would wonder what you were missing out on by being with him, everytime you saw someone who attracted you it would be a reminder. Its not how many breathes you take but how many take your breathe away. You will not have many really breathtaking moments with someone that you do not have that deep feeling for.....................

Somebody said "money is not a synonym of happiness but better cry over a Ferrari"

Just teasing.

When I was in college a group of student in my dorm (coed) got into a discussion group on ethics in life. The question for the day was close, except the question was "would you have sex with a person you were not married to". It was the 60s, and people were starting to become fairly liberal.

I arranged the group was that we were sitting in a circle, with Beth (a very conservative and religious girl) on my left, and Linda (the groups ultra-liberal) to my right. I made sure to go around the group clockwise. Beth started, and said no, she wanted to be a virgin on her wedding night. Most of the gals said they would if they were engaged, or loved the guy. The last person to answer the question was Linda, who didn't disappointment me when she said, "If he was good looking, and it felt good, Hell Yes"

So then I changed the question "Would you have sex with someone you neither loved, or even found attractive, if you would be paid one million dollars, tax free?" Again, Beth gave a firm no. The remaining answers varied as we went around the group, with some gals asking "how ugly is he" but most at least considering. Again, Linda did not disappoint me with her answer. "For One Million Dollars Tax Free, Hell Yes If he looks too bad I can always put a bag over my face"

Then I reached into my pocket, counted my change, and asked her "How about for $2.35? Linda recoiled in disgust, and angrily asked "For $2.35, what kind of girl do you think I am?"

I calmly replied "You have already established that; now I am haggling price".

Almost everyone laughed, until I went on the say "Some people marry for money, not love. Some people laugh at jokes they find offensive, or endure sexual harassment, just to keep a well paying job. We all prostitute ourselves to some extent. The ladies on the street are at least honest about their motives. " You could have heard a pin drop, until I finally said "Tomorrows subject well be...."

Gives you pause for thought, doesn't it? Have a Happy New Year.

First time I had to perform "marital duties" and couldn't get it up, that'd be kind of a problem, don'tcha think?

Ah, but you probably wouldn't walk out with what you came in with. Most states are either a community property state or have laws that say what ever is acquired during the marriage is marital property. This would include any interest accrued off those assets.

However, there is an old joke that covers this situation pretty much to a T. Ladies, understand this could also apply the other way. It goes like this:

A man was at a party and saw this woman he was very attracted to. He went over and began a conversation with her. During the conversation he asked, "Would you go to bed with someone for just one night if they gave you a million dollars?" She replied, "Well, yes." The man then asked if she would do the same for a hundred dollars. The woman replied, "Of course not, what kind of a woman do you think I am."
The man then said, "We've already established what kind of woman you are, we're just negotiating price now."

If you're getting married for any other reason than love, then you're a prostitute. The only question is how much has to be in the asset column for you to give in.

Reply to initial post (I've not read anything else in this thread):

No way! I would never marry for money.

Also, I would not 'not marry' for lack of money, or 'not marry' because of an abundance of money.

Money is not a motivating factor for me. That said, I do look for drive and goals and some direction in life. Money can sometimes be evidence of a goal oriented person.

Chemistry & common values first...Money? Whatever...

This is not a simple question to answer. There are few things I need to know to make an informed decision. These questions assume there is no attraction (emotional or physical)...


How long do we have to stay married?

How much money is involved?

Do I have to consummate?

I wouldnt marry for money.
I have to be attracted to someone.
But i sure as hell woudlnt marry someone poor that would be a leech on me.
For me the ideal marriage woulkd be where there is passionate love and amazing chemistry, AND enough money to enjoy a nice lifestyle together.

Ive been making my own way and close to getting to my goal. I wouldn't trade the possiblity of meeting somebody for love, nor sell my soul, just to have an easier life. Being able to laugh on a mattress on the floor is more important than taking a trip with somebody that can't even make you crack a smile.

Well, Im not sure. If we were really great friends, we got along super well, and life together would be great - I might marry him. But keep in mind, I do look at things differently than most people.
I think i would marry someone now that I may not have great love for but I am very fond of him, he treats me super well, and we could have a good life together. I think we could grow to love in a very special way.
The money would be nice and would keep that from being something that be a stressor.
