well I have encountered a lot of discussions here talking about money versus love. I read most of the responses, they picked up love. please answer my question with love or money: Which one can feed you sons ? Which one can buy your wife flowers? Which one can buy your children blankets? Which one can feed you and help your heart to beat? Which one can make you buy movie tickets for your girlfriend? please do not tell me love. money can buy love and happiness together. Love is a huge lie. Look forward to hearing from you.

Money has become a very essential part of life, no doubt, but that does not mean you have to say, "Love is a huge lie." Love is more essential among your close relations like ur parents, spouse and children, love keeps you happy with them. Money is in most part needed among friends, relatives, and the others i guess. dont ignore love totally, if u dont have love, u wud not at all want to earn money to buy the blanket for ur children or flowers for ur wife or tickets for ur gf..just think.. its because of that love inside you, u r forced to earn money to see ur loved ones happy...

goergineo oh no don't say that . Love is what keeps us all going and raising our kids. without love money is just some pieces of metal and paper. Yes we need money to buy our necessities but who we going to buy them for if we do not love and marry. A person with loads of money and no one to love can feel so empty and so lost and the money does not help one bit. Why would you even have a girlfriend if you did not have love? Love is what motivates us to go out and earn a living so we can provide for our loved ones. Love is an emotion and money is just an inanimate object. Love pushs us to do our very best,it fuels our desire to make money for ourselves and others.

Yes, Love does not put food on the table, you need money to do this but I don't agree that money can buy love and happiness together. Money gives you contentment of buying necessity for your family, yes that is true but remember, there are still families out there that are not happy even if they can buy the largest mall in the world... since their marriage is not working out... Love exist on those people who found their match or it does exist in family too but remember, there are people who breaks up as well since Love can't FEED them... So, I therefore conclude that MONEY and LOVE are needed in the relationship. Why? I believe that when you love someone and decided to have a family of your own, you will do everything like having a job or doing some nice work to earn MONEY for your family so that you can give them their needs.

Let me simplify my question: Who comes first money or love? By the way, I see more break up cases among poor families than rich ones.

Let me answer your questions. Love always comes first then your questions. First of all you wife will be as a result of your love withe your wife. secondly Your children will be the result of your love with your wife. Thirdly your girlfriend comes with you as a result of your love with her. Money can buy you a bed not the sleep. money can buy you a blanket but not the warmth that you wife will give you. Money can buy you a movie ticket but not the girl friend with whom you can watch movies.

I don't believe love is a lie. Yes money is important but it will never buy you love and happiness. Life is empty without love, however I know you have to be practical and money is an essential. Yes love doesn't pay for things, but it is very important. There would be no fun earning money if you wouldn't be spending it on the ones you love.

To be completely honest, I could go my whole life without love. I chose money. I'd rather explore the world and be able to do anything I want than to have loved someone. More than 60% of marriages fail. What's love? Not forever I guess...

Both plays an important role in your life and therefore one should have both love and money in order to be well established in life and a defiency of anyone thing will make the life incomplete.

"To have money is something, but money is not everything". This is a quote from one of my professors back in the university. That professor is actually a successful businessman and family man. I truly stand by the aforementioned quote. Sure, we need love in this world, because love keeps a family and relationships together in good and bad times. But i'm also a very realistic person, I don't believe love would solve everything. Love in itself can't sustain you and your family's health and well-being; you need money for daily survival and development as a person. If you really love a person or your family, you would want to be able to provide them with their needs. You can only do that if you work and earn money for them. I don't believe love is a lie, it happens, at least to people around me. I think love and money should be equal in importance, because it allows persons to live in a humanized fashion.

It is true by money you can buy this thins but still there is something that money can't buy. That is LOVE. Love is everything & it is everywhere,in your mind.

Love is something good if it comes with the money but alone it's nothing, I agree with you, a family cannot exist with love only, love may help but money is the foundation.

Seems like you have been just thrown out if a relation that you never probably understood. Nobody in the world says that Love is more than money, although it makes you do thing that wouldn't have been possible. If you are completely serious about having a person as your life partner, then you would make sure that you have enough money to support them. And this love would make you better. Trust me, If you are in love, and you try to do some, then you'll find that you can do those things in a better manner and in an efficient way. All the above cannot be answered cos Love doesn't buy you those, but surely it makes you work hard so that you can get them for ur people.. bourne

I do agree with what u say, money can feed sons, money can buy flowers, can buy blankets, and also help heart to beat, but without love, how can we think to raise our sons? if we dont have love, we cant raise our sons, so we dont have to have money, if we dont have love for our partners, we dont have to buy flowers, so no need of money when no love. if we dont have love, we shudnt need to bother get blankets 4 our children. if we dont have love, we shudnt need to spend huge money on some1 whose life we want to save and help his heart beat. So love is the driving force to get money and money with love to get a life. But Can money buy peace?

Both are equally important. There is just a line of difference for both of them and you should be able to balance it. Once you make the money that you require it is good to acknowledge the love without which you couldn't do it.

this is a good topic to discuss.. well as they say money can't buy love, but this is only applicable when you are courting someone, you cannot bribe them just to make them love you. but when you already have a family and you need to feed them... that is a different situation. money is the most important necessity that a family should have or else you will just keep asking for the governments help which is not good. although, money should not also be the only means love a person. what i mean is that you need not to live in a luxurious life. as long as i could make your family live a comfortable life then that is all that matters.

that is why you should have a job and livelihood before you get into relationship.Without love you cant be happy.You can have both love and money if you are hardworking and responsible.With love, there is also a consequence of commitment which you should support by work to keep you survive.Money cant buy happiness which love only brings .

Yes there have been plenty of discussions relating to this. And yes, I agree, you MUST have money to SURVIVE and its nice to have a little extra to enjoy yourself from time to time..like to go on a vacation or dinner or something. However, money does NOT buy you happiness or love. And being "rich" does not always mean having an abundance of cash. To me, a couple who is living on the comfortable side financially and truly, truly love eachother and find happiness within their family unit and in life in general are richer than the billionaire couple who are miserable in their marriage and in their lives (sorry for the run on there)
