Hey MyLotters! This question has come up when I was talking to my oldest sister the other day. She has recently met my girlfriend and asked me all questions such as marriage. I do not planned on getting married for several more years! However, she told me I should marry for money and not love. I don't agree with her, what do you guys think?

yeah i see why you dont agree with your sister...i also believe that it's not right to marry for only purpose of financial stability..money in other words..yeah it's good to have a lot of money..you can do a lot of things..you can buy whatever you lik..you can indulge on things you love most..spend money on luxurious things..yeah that5 would make you happy but only for a little time..no permanence and no true happiness..it's only love that can give you the whole meaning of happiness in a marriage..i guess money is just a shallow reason for marrying a person..

Marriage is so important in our life,we can't lose our love and some days later we meet them again easily.But for money,we can't lose them and if we work hard we can get them back soon,we have more than 50 years for earining money.So I think marry for love not money.

Marring for money wont last long! I saw it many times and not in the movies. A marriage based on love would have the power to defite and pass through all problems that will occure.

Marry for love first, and then for money. Without love, a marriage seems not so exciting and it turns out to be a result of necessity. So first, choose the one you love is very important. But the second thing you have to take into consideration is the guy you marry to must be ablt to earn money after getting married. Without money, a love would not last long. I don't believe that love can replace bread and butter in all one's life.

Everyone must Marry for love and nothing else than that reason. Because LOVE makes all things bearable. And if you gonna marry somebody because of money, then what happen if time comes that money will disappear or lost? So??? Everything will disappear and lost too...Right???

I also agree with you. I would only marry if I truly love the guy. Money should not be the reason for marriage. I would be happier being with someone I love..It would also be unfair the for the guy if I only agree to marry him because of his property. Money can never bring you real happiness.

hhmm..first of all,you would not marry a person which you wouldnt love at all..you will marry a person because you think that she/he is the one you want to be for the rest of your life..eventually,there are some case that a person will just marry a person because of money.if they really want to escape from poverty and want to feel the life of richness.
