Did you marry for love, money or citizenship?

I married for love. Most definitely for love. He waited 3 years for me to be comfortable getting married again seeing as I had previous bad marriages. He is definitely my soul mate, we finish each others statements all the time and know what the other means a lot of the times without them completely finishing!

for love definately, but you have to be able to use your head about it too. sometimes we fall in love with the wrong ppl and we have to make sure that both the head and heart are in order then marriage can be a good thing. I just dont believe money can buy happiness and I would rather be rich in love than in money, and the citizenship thing, well I have never had to run across that kind of issue so I probably shouldnt make an opinion on that one.

i would not marry somebody that i was not in love with. i feel in love with my hubby about a month before we started dating he asked me out everyday for about a month and half but the fact that i was in love with him scared me a little bit. But i finally told him that i would go out on a date with him.We have been together for almost seven years now. He is still my best friend. So yea i married only for love.

Absolutely for Love! I can earn the money for myself, never for Citizenship - the person you're marrying is not a piece of legal document.

i thinks it is for companionship, raising a new family and for love, though now aday people marry for money, and to get resident permit.

For me getting married has everything to do with love and friendship. I dont think I could marry someone I was not in love with.

Of course, love. How can I get married if without love? Of course, I am a selective person, the factor of education, looking and money. Many westerners may feel corious about my thinking. If I love my girl, why should I add so many barriers? However, I have this thought depending on the current Chinese society...

I will marry for love. I won't be happy if I will to marry for money, money can't buy love.

I married for love - I could never have married anyone I didn't love and could not have just married somebody for money or citizenship. I think to marry somebody who you have no feelings for at all is going against what marriage is all about.
