Today,my manager was trying to introduce an engineer for me with the intention for me to have extra choice in choosing boyfriend. Well,I have a very good boyfriend whom I stay with around 3 years. He really loves me and cares about me. Maybe he does not earn as much as an engineer but I am satisfied about it. I think that's enough. Nothing is more precious than can get a boyfriend that really cares so much about us. But why do some people still thinking this way? Will ones be happier if she has a rich boyfriend? I wonder,please share...

I think there is a similar question to boys:Will you be happier if you have a rich boyfriend or husband? I think it is quite difficult to answer this question.If you really love each other.Of course money will let you be happier,but if you choose your spouse only because he/she is rich,then I think you won't be happy.

Happiness in a relationship cannot be based from the money, earning, or possession you have. Honestly I couldn't tell you if I would be happier or not. I would rather say it is the love that would assure you to have happiness with your husband and/or boyfriend. Maybe the reason why other people consider money us happiness its because of practicality. Some people don't use the heart anymore because they need to live. It is better to feed the stomach than to follow the heart because of love. In todays generation people are happier to have high-tech gadgets. Take care =)

Though momentarily one will be very happy with the boyfriend with all his riches at one's disposal, it is not going to last for long time, because it has no solid foundation and once the guy is exhausted or sick of spending on the girl, the relationship turns sour. Whereas husband if he is calcualted person who spares money for rainy day, the life may go on a straight line, depending on the extent of cooepration each extends to each other.

seeing the present scenario, nothing is constant nor the love , nor the boyfriend , nor the love....atleast money would be constant..so i would opt for the person who is rich as i think how much ever time i spent with a person those should be royal and great to remmeber for ever in life..

I think love is much stronger than money and I can't understand people who only marry for money. To know that you have someone on your side no matter what is the greatest feeling of all time and I don't really think that you have that with someone you matty for money.

I think that I would be happier with a rich boyfriend / husband, because then it will take away one of the issues that many relationship have and that is financial worries, without these then you have "one less problem on your plate" so to speak. However if he is not the right person for you then you will have more problems to deal with it and it will not be worth it.

It depends. If you love that person and he's rich then you're lucky but if you will just get involved with that person all because of money, you will never be happy. I still don't believe in practicality. Maybe yes, being practical with some things but when it comes to the heart, you can never cover up love with money.

money is not every thing around you can buy every thing by money but you cant buy happiness and the moments you spends with your loved ones.money doesnt matters every where but at sometimes we need money and as well as we need somebody who cares for us and love us.

If you are haviing good caring boyfriend then you are very lucky. Money doesnot happy people happy. The caring and loving which we receive from our partner is the wealth. Some people doesnot receive the caring of the partners. For this kind of people thenmoney is great. Happy posting and take care.

[i]Having rich BF/GF is really great. You have no problem about your date. He/she can also help if your facing financial problems,but the question is,Did you really love him/her? or you just feel in love because of his/her money. If I were you, stay with your Bf now,money is nothing compare to real love. Have a Great Day![/i]

I think having a rich boyfriend or husband is just a plus in your relationship.. money can never replace love. As long as you and your partner have a healthy relationship, then that's what it means by being rich :) Rich in love. God bless you!

No!!!!!!!!!! I dont think have a rich husband will be happier. If he is a hot tempered or a very flower hearted guy then sure you will be very very sad to be with him... He only can give you money. He cant give love that really come from heart like make a cake for you... He will only buy you expensive cake or present. Cant feel any warm from him. So i dont think have a rich boyfriend will happier. But not all rich people like that. Good Luck!! Happy Myloting~!!

I think only those people who really deeply in love with money will choose someone who can give all his/her luxury or possession in life.. If that person who is rich can makes you happy and you love him/her for who he/she is and not because of his/her money then it is okay to choose him/her but if you just love him/her because of what he/she have in life then think about it.. I think you can't be happy to be with someone whom you don't love and care.. You will just make your life miserable being with him/her just because of something... I know money is important but too much money can't makes you happy anymore.. Money can't buy real happiness...

This question really depends on situation, if you liked both guy (one richer than the other), and the both guys loves you, then yes, I think you'll happier with the richer one. Because your relationship with him is based on love. But if you leave a person who loves you to pursuit another guy that is richer but not loves you, then you'll regret it one day. Many people says money is not everything, but don't forget with no money then you'll have nothing. But if it's comes to relationship, better place feeling a little bit above, besides your current boyfriend is not too poor to support you in the future is he?

The ideal situation is if a boyfriend is rich plus loving plus caring plus good looking. But men are human after all, and they can't be all that. If they are rich, they are not caring. If they are loving, they are not good looking. And some animals are none of the above. It depends on your luck. You are lucky if you can fall for one who is all of the above, but it rarely happens. So, we settle for one or two qualities at the most. Now, you have a not-so-rich, loving, and caring boyfriend, and you seem to be happy. So go for it. Tell your manager you are already engaged. :) Oh your question!! Show me the gal who says she will not be happy with a loving plus caring plus RICH plus good looking guy, and I will show you a liar. Even is a guy is only rich and none of the others, she can still be smart enough to have a jolly good time with his money. Cheers and happy mylotting

I married my husband for better or worse, richer or poorer, We have not been rich, far far far from it. But I would not trade him for a zillion dollars and a rich man ever. Money cannot buy genuine true love, it cannot buy real happiness, it cannot buy success that is real. It cannot buy friends. It often is shallow and though money can buy goods and even better health and food it is not going to make you happy. Love is not bought it is given and grows over time. We have been married going on 40 years. I love him thousands of times more now than when we first married. He is not rich and we struggle to make ends meet and do without medical and dental except emergencies. We love each other we often argue but we work things out and communicate and we love one another. Tonight after an argument we put on music and danced and kissed and made up. He is my best friend and my sweetheart and lover. Money cannot buy his love or his compassion and kindness. So no marrying someone rich is not going to make you happy.

I would agree with you. A girl having a rich boyfriend does not automatically equate to happiness. (Neither does a girl having a poor boyfriend automatically equate to happiness.) Happiness has to do with something other than being rich or poor. It has to do with contentment with each other and personal commitment to each other. Cheers!

well i believe money does make some people happy. but a marriage without love is certainly not an ideal one. if i have to choose between love and money, i'll definitely go for love. money is important when you don't have food to eat or shelter over your head. but when you can earn that yourself, you will yearn for love. i earn my own keep so my partner's wealth is not important to me. no one will reject more money but no one will reject more love either. it'll make me happier if my partner is richer but i will not forsake love for money. cheers ;p

I understand how and what you feel. Just don't mind it still just smile say hello. Don't make it a big deal. Just let it go. If your happy and satisfied with your bf be it. If you love your bf you wont wonder or be curious of anything else. Money cannot buy happiness. As long as your contented with what you have. Have a nice day!
