Today , i heard that one parents don't let their lovely daughter get along with her boyfriend , they thought her boyfriend cannot give her happiness , becuase her boyfriend has not money as many as her parent , but their daughter love her boyfriend very much , and so do her boyfriend ! Her parents try many ways to apart them , and finally , they apart sadly ! After a long time , their daughter get married with the guy her parent thought is good , but , that have not feel happy at all , because her husband didn't love her at all , and always find other girls outside ! All parents hope their kids get happiness , when they meet their ture love , why their parents stop it , just for the reason of money ? I think love is nothing with money !!!!!!

Things are so different in different places. I would have been very upset if I wasn't allowed to be with who I wanted to be, but at the same time, those men who I was with, it didn't work out with. I think that money has not a thing to do with how a couple will manage, except they both must work together to have enough to make sure that they can live. I think that when the parents interfere, many times the relationship doesn't work out from the beginning because there is a resentment there from the very beginning. At the same time, often the daughter doesn't want to disappoint the parents and will do what they want to keep them happy. It is my belief that the feelings of the man and woman must be more important than how much money they have since they can work together to get the money they will need..........they can't always work together to get the feelings they will need.

It's always nice to have money, but it's not necessary, and if two people love each other they should be together regardless whether one has more money or "enough" money. I don't have very much and neither does my boyfriend, but we're very happy and survive. I wouldn't leave him even if a millionaire tried to steal me away from him!

If she'd married her boyfriend and they lived in poverty with the lack of money making them so unhappy that they wished they hadn't married, would you feel the same way? I understand your anger at her parents but we parents want the best for our children and maybe they felt that she hadn't met enough men to understand what she really wanted. And nobody wants to see their child living in poverty or struggling to meet everyday living expenses. I don't think it was all about money. I'm sure they feel horrible about her marriage now but they did the best they could--which, sadly for us parents, isn't always good enough. I hope your friend's life gets better and she finally finds the love she deserves or her husband realizes the treasure he has.

Money is sure an important accessory in life, and i mean accessory! You can become a multi-billionaire overnight or loose your multi-billions. With or without money, true love conquers all. Love will last forever but sadly, we only need money in this world.

Hmmm... for me, if that guy has no money, he should get work, work hard, get money, and get high position! It takes time and suffer, but if he really loves that girl, he will do everything!!! He should show to the girl's parents that he is a responsible person, and their daughter will be "alright" to be with him. All parents want their children get marry with "right" person. If you in the parents' shoes, then you will agree with me.

Money is nothing infront of love but when it comes to living,people manage somehow and earn for their living.I mean if u got love and u r happy with the little money u earn.Then its allright,thats all one can expect nowadays.... Atleast i wish to be happy like this....i may do odd jobs n earn something for myself but would let anyone harm my love....will never let her feel that she's lonely n will never get a situation where we have to beg.

you are exactly right. I'm surprised that they succeeded in breaking them up. Often times when parents try to destroy a relationship of their kids, it ends up pushing them closer together.

'Money cant by you love' by the Beatles... But it can go a long way towards it! If you have money you can afford your childrens school fees, good house, good life, and you are more likely to have love.

it's difficult to make a conclusion which is more important in marriage. a happy marriage is on the base of much elements, such as trust, love, money, etc. lost of any element leads to inbalance.

I am a single mother, divorced twice. Both of my husbands had plenty of money, but money doesn't buy happiness!!! I am now dating a man that makes considerably less than I make, but I know he loves me. We have a deep respect for each other and have a very caring and loving relationship. The fact that he does not make more money than I do does not bother me nor him. We are extremely happy together and money has absolutely nothing to do with our feelings towards each other!!! Money cannot buy love!

That is so true. Money has nothing to do with true love and besides true love comes once in a lifetime.

money is what it is money , love is nothing like money , their total oppposites people cant attatch one to the other , im sure alot of floks get them confused a person may "love" you for you money but how is it when the money is gone? i say grow with the person and then the money comes , to me its all about the persons mind set , you can have all the money in the world and marry the love of your life ...and that love of your can drop you ... money is nothingless

It's true, money has nothing to do with true love, and it's sad that the parents did this to their daughter, they don't know , nor realize how sad they have made her! Maybe fate will lend a hand and step in, and maybe correct this injustice!

In any relationship, money is important, only to the extent that what it could provide, materially. one have to note that there are still, in this material world, there are money cannot buy. Of course consider money as meeting the needs as defined by Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, cuz one cannot or could suffer meeting next upper need as certain unfilled lower needs are not met. At any rate, money need not be an ultimate reason on living purposely.

I mean i guess that you can love someone with money the same way that you could love someone without money...because if you really love that person you don't really care if they have money or not..I just think that some people think that unless you have so much money you aren't as good as they are and I think that is completely wrong..because you love who you love...there's no changing that!

I totally agree with your point. Money can't buy happiness and can't buy many things like health, home, love etc. In fact parents have more experience than us, so when we know love, we tend to introduce them to our parents. But sometimes parents will make mistakes, too. Money is always not the first point to consider. The person's character is the most important. You have to judge whether he/she is honest or not. As to money, if he/she has some, that's good. If not, then they can earn by hardworking.

Sometimes I think if parents try to get their children to enter a loveless marriage then i can't help thinking these parents never experienced real emotional love because if they did they would never want their children especially daughter to enter into a marriage without it, how a parent could wish their daughter to do the things that is expected within a marriage with out love i will never understand, love is the most beautiful feeling in the world, I would rather be poor and in love than rich and never feel that emotion.
