Would you marry for what kind of reason?! what is the truth behind why you want to marry?! Most people want money some for love, Some chose money to secure they future and others love just because it feels right. I chose love for one reason, love is always gonna be there and it is not a material thing, although most of us had experienced that love can be also lost like money does but the main point is you can never be sure if youre going to be happy just being rich without love. Now when you answer this comment please answer it with full meaning .. if you chose love then its just love . . if money its just money . . i hope you understand . . P.S if anybody had the same topic as i did im sorry i just wanted to know any opinions im going to have with my friends and people who want to reply

i would/will/have chose love over money. if there is no love money will always be the problem, and when there is love money always seems to be there (to survive). i am the kind of person that can not let to be touched in any intimate way from the person i feel nothing about so i could not marry for money. it would be the end for me. So love is my game... (but if money is involved to it just makes a nice addition ;D)

yeah youre so right at that one . . we should never be attached to intimate materials .. those things are just there throughout our lives.

I would only marry for love. My parents married for love. They were so poor when they began their marriage. But though we're not living in the Ritz, we're doing okay. I would rather have to work hard all my life as long as I get to go home to a man who loves me.

Marriage is not done for money or love. Marriage is part of every human's life. It should not be compromised with anything else. Money & love only helps to run this institution. lol..

Well friend,I will marry for love but I think money is also required for living.By loving each other or looking each other we cant live.So I think we should see both.Love is there but money is required to carry on the love.

but you could both love each other and see things through its like your offering your love for somebody and yet with gaurantee or he should be this or that in order for it to be complete. Things are going to work out. same way as too love you could also marry for money and yet you could develop that love. But i want a more specific answer if its love then its love if its money . . " its all about the money"

i choose to love a man for love not for money. money is just a material thing that will not stay with. but the person who loves you and you loved will be together until forever. How can a man or woman be happy just because he or she is rich. You cannot be happy with a man who could just give you all the things in this world. You cannot buy happiness. But if you're with the person you love guaranteed that you'll be happy. And even though he don't have lots of money, he can work hard with your help of course so that he can provide you better life for your family.

certainly things can never be bought all the time. It is very hard to love somebody who isn't worth it. You must know the right reason why you love that person. You could work things together in order to make a living . . ?"love will keep us alive"?

I will, and have married for love. I think love is what you should get married for, if it's for money, then it seems the relationship would be meaningless. I just have to ask you, how do you type those hearts?

I married for love. My husband and I met in college at the first dance we both attended and danced one dance there. after that it took us more than a week to talk again because we were both shy and quiet. Once we got to know each other we found that we had a lot in common. Our love will keep growing and changing. We have our son now and he is two years old this week. I will tell you that I have been married for 13 years now and still love him as much as i did at the beginning.

Definately for love. In my opinion, moeny should not be a factor at all, but maybe that's just an idealistic viewpoint. Now if you marry for love, and the guy happens to be rich, too, all the better! LOL! If you go with love first, you can't go wrong, because you can always get money later. And plus, to me, that is what marriage is all about, LOVE. If I want financial security, I can create that on my own.

but your missing the bigegr picture . . if you were to choose one no more no less, it is pretty obvious we need both but what would be YOURE CHOICE! im sorry for emphasizing that but you really do need to pinpoint out something.

Hi there, I have read all your utterances about the reasons to marry and I think that you are all right, whether you go in for money or for love. It is all about education, life philosophy, geographical origin, and other factors that come into play. Personnaly, i agree with the one who says that you have to go in love and with money inside it is better . that is for now NKM

hi there, well i'll marry for love.i can never even think about marrying money and i find it very difficult for me to understand those people who marry for money.i mean when the base of your relationship(which is most important relationship according to me)is money or anything like that and not love,feelings or emotions then it would be almost impossible to keep that relationship because on one day or the other you will develop that empty or shallow feeling which will lead to nowhere but dissatisfaction with your life and your relationship would not survive.now if this is bound to happen which really is then why should anybody go for a emotionless contract between two people.

I have married for LOVE...Most definatly marry for love not money...Money can't buy you love or happiness but if you have a good loving relationship and finances are hard come by as long as you have the love you can make it through and as long as you are happy...

i think there are some one live for life ,but there still someone live for their own life .life need money ,but money wil not make a happy life more times . our life is made up of love ,happy and money is like a house without which we still can live ahappy life ,with shich we may make a happier life .and marry is like the hero ,if we only have a house but no hero how can we live ahappy life . money is just money ,it is not life in itself

I already have set this on my mind, that I will marry a person whom I love. It doesn't matter where they came from, what their pasts are all about, as long as we feel love with each other. It would be a big slap for me if ever I marry a person just because of money, same goes the other way. I won't allow myself to marry a woman, just because she wants to make a run out of my money..

This is not a difficult decision for me. It goes without saying that I will marry for love rather than money. Although I have to say that money is very important and we can't live without it. But love is much more important for me in my opinion. Maybe we are not rich at present, but it will change when we both work hard. Money can also be earned by efforts. But if you marry to someone for money, then you will feel very bored after that. Life without love is very meaningless.

wealth - living in luxury. is this why you would want to get married?
It's easy to make money and there are many ways to do that. But true love is like a rare gem that's difficult to find. Marriage is a lifelong commitment. You'll be miserable if you didn't love your spouse. Sorry but I look down on people who marry for money.
