No way.. I'm too pigheaded to accept hand outs..
If I fell in love with a guy who happened to be rich..
I think I'd still get my own job and make my own way anyway..
No silver platters for me.

Coming from a well to do family, I would hope that no one would ever marry just for money. Some people were born with money, others have worked very hard to achieve their goal of having money, either way, they are still people and people have feelings regardless of their wealth.

No, I would only marry for love..........

While money can't buy happiness, it sure can rent it! The question leaves some thinking though, but realistically, no I couldn't do it. I get by financially on my own and am quite happy that way.

Money is the root of all evil they say. Ever seen a rich brat? It can buffer you from what is really important, it can even stall your growth indefinately. There is a thread on these forums about a guy agonizing over how to properly setup his prenupts, or suggestions he get a maid for the house and keep one for sex in another local just to make sure one can't sue as a couple etc etc...

If they flash their bank statement at you, then they are buying you. You became a potential possession the second the zero's crossed your eyes. The relationship itself will have just as many zeros.

money means nothing - and people who think money with make them happy of solve there problems are skrewed up in the head. I would much rather be in the middle of nowhere with somone i truely love - than be rich and not have a truely love based relationship

well the problem with that is that your assuming that attraction cant grow


if there is mutual mental interest you would be amazed at what kind of relationship can come out of that

maybe there are both really passionate people and the first time they make love for six hours

brings them together like no other couple could be

maybe money doesnt really matter to him/her

who knows


I would marry someone rich or poor

as long as I knew they loved me

No way. I turned rich guys in the past. Its actually puts you off sometimes. I don't want to feel beholdent to anyone.

I am happy with my man now. He is broke but he makes me happy with his kindess and intelligence and tells me I am beautiful even on days when I get out of bed with horrid greasy unwashed hair. Would pick him over a rich guy any day.

The fact that "her" and "I" will make and enjoy tons of money together is a mandatory criterion for my choosing a mate; yes. But would I get married just because her dad gave me 75,000 in a personal account to do so? no. Would I marry because her parents were rich? no.

But money is, most certainly, a consideration. IN reality; "lifestyle" is what it's all about for me. Pay me nothing for my work but guarantee me that I can do whatever I wish as far as vacations and home changes and such go and I would take that deal. Money is paper, the things it buys is what I am interested in.

Absolutely.

How many people go through their lives not finding "love"?

I imagine nowadays people are so independant that they usually prefere to be alone.

Why I'd take the money?

Love isn't always a sure thing, well, unless we are talking about the 2005 Mustang GT.

Oh wait, what kind of love are we talking about again?

@msreddress
GreenyX, no offense or anything but the saying actually is
THE LOVE of money, is the root of all evil.

Just so you know.

No offence at all, you can correct me anytime you like. I did know, but I'm just very used to saying it in its contracted form.

No I wouldn't "marry for money". Attempted a relationship with someone who has money... I can't be controlled and he thought he could control me. Sorry... money doesn't determine my happiness.

Being broke doesn't buy either one.

No way. Ive met too many wealthy and miserable people out there, stuck in loveless relationships to ever go there. Theres only so many shopping trips you can do, only so many diamonds you can wear. [ yes I know many would disagree with me] And really what is all that spending about anyway - are you doing it for yourself or to impress others.

Whats the point of a castle if the prince is really a toad....Being financially comfortable is nice, but I would want to equally contribute and he and I work on it together !! I agree on with another post, I wouldnt want to live on handouts.

You go in with nothing, you walk away with nothing...to me its kind of like they are leasing you....nup, not for me

I bet I've met even more miserable non-rich people in loveless marriages.

Hell, I'll bet I've met more people who are miserable because they're married

Person you have no attraction to wants to marry you. They are not ugly, but they are not in any way attractive to you. There is moderate emotional, mental chemistry. No romantic factor other than polite conversation. They show you a brokerage account and legal forms that proves they have these assets. They have 10 million dollars. Would you marry them?
and oh ps...
nothing goes in your name. If you walk out, you walk out with what you came in with.
would you marry them?


No...I don't need or wants someone else's money (then they feel they can tell you how you can spend it)...I need not only mental chemistry, and way more than polite conversation, but I also need them to touch my heart. If that's not there, then neither am I.
