If you only had 2 choices, what would you do? Would you marry a rich man/woman you don't know or love, or would you choose to be poor and live in a trailer for 20 years.Is this a hard question for ya mylotters?

easy for me to answer...i take care of myself and I don't need nor want anyone elses money. No, I am not rich...far from it. I actually struggle to get by but if I'm going to add someone to my life, happiness is very important to me. Living in a trailer with someone that brought me joy and smiles would be so much nicer than living with some man that made me miserable but could buy me everything...not me.

I just re-read your question and just to let you know, I have raised 4 children on my own & have dated a couple of very wealthy men and not used them to get into a better comfort zone. I would never ever live with another man that I did not love simply to give myself or my children more material things. I think it'd be teaching my kids poor values and it would make me feel bad about myself. I can take care of my own.

I would choose to marry a rich guy cause there's no way i'm gonna live in a trailer for 20years. It's hard to even imagine either scenario but having the money it's a start to helping yourself i think. Or it can go the other way and you come to depend on wealth and put yourself in a marriage that's hard to get out of.

Not hard at all, I would marry the rich man but there would have to be two conditions. First, no children and second, a prenuptial agreement. I don't see living happily ever after with this rch man so I want to agree on a price of my and his freedom.

for me, it is not a hard question for me... i sure will choose to be poor .... bcoz true love is very difficult to find... if u bcoz of money n marry with a person tat u dun't noe or love, u won't hv happiness.... if u hv children, ur children oso won't b happy... for sure i will choose poor but can live happily... =)

I honestly wouldn't be with a person for money because money could come in many different ways. I would rather have someone that I love and that I could have memories for years and years than just to be with someone because of money. I think that memories that you have with someone you love are worth more than anything in the world including money. I rather be happy and with the person I care about than rich and unhappy with a rich person who I don't love at all.

well money is definitely no the most important thing for me, but when you put it like that i don't know. I mean i do not wanna live in a trailer for 20 years. i just cannot see that happening. When you think about it most people get divorces anyways so why not marry a rich man and get divorce later, who knows you might even learn to love him. And no i am not a shallow person i just wouldn't want my kids to grow up without the basics.

no this is not a hard question for me if im not going to be happy with the rich man why would i marry him not for money because all i need are neccesties and happiness in the end look at what money does to people. so my answer is id be poor and live in a trailer and wait for the right person that i could be happy with
