Is it true that women are after money?

I don't think so. Well to justify my view i need to bring in our primitive ancestors who simply mated because they wanted to expand their species. So the strategy is simple. Women always want men who are powerful and protective. A man that can protect her family, her children from predators and powerful enough to be the bread winner. Now with the advent of money i think it has made things a bit more complex. So i personally feel that women still need a powerful and protective guy who can protect her (lil') family. And in today's world people have become so materialistic that money makes them look powerful or define their status. Probably this is why woman seem to be after money! So what do you say?

We all need money in order to be able to survive. I think that some women are after the money, but I don't think that every woman is after the money. I'm not after the money, not only after the money. There are other things that are a lot more important to me than money.

Yes you are right. This discussion was stared to clear out doubts from all those minds who think that women prefer a wealthy man or prefer dating a man who has wallet full of cash and cards. Thanks for your valuable contribution. :)

Hello divkris , maybe some women are after money but not all are that matrialistic. I have dated a young man who was materalistic and needless to say that relationship didn't last more than 3 months.Now my b/f shares what he has with me and I share what I have with him. When he was out of work I supplied his gas money and he added my name to his car so we could get better rates for insurance.So no, not all women are only after money. If I was I would have stayed with my ex-husband or fought him for half of his multi million retirement and I left with nothing but my sanity intact.

You are right ds. Materialism cannot give protection. Probably many think like you and me. Protection on a mental level than a physical stuff. But for a few it is probably the other way - remember they are still primitive and think being powerful (money, materialistic comfort, having influence and power) can actually help them and their kids in the path of survival! :)

I think actually most people want money...need it really to survive. However i think that in relationships what most people women and men are after is the closeness...being together love...family kids and such. I wouldnt say its money.

well this for those (especially men) who think that women prefer a man who has more money or power and unfortunately there are a few women who think that way. but i wouldn't blame them because it is their natural instinct that is actually making them do so!

I totally agree with you. Getting in on your line of thought, its not really the money in itself but the security that money brings to a woman's and her future family's future. If one has money, then the world is their playground. They wouldnt have to worry about where to get funds or resources just to bring food to the table, pay the bills, or at least have a home that one can call their own without a landlord banging on their door every month demanding lease/rent. Nowadays though, most women have careers and have already established a lot all on their own that they wont mind if they would be the 'powerful' one in the relationship. But that is a case to case basis. Generally though, you have well articulated a woman's need to find a man who is powerful, protective and have ample resources to set her for life.

I am sorry, I have a differnt opinion. I think all are after money - women and men. You cannot discriminate and say women are after money. In olden days women wanted to marry a strong and wealthy guy who can take care of her and give her a rich life. I think in this modern world women are more concentrating on making her own money. Women want to get good education and build a good career. Of course when it comes to marriage she is looking fo somebody who is powerful and rich who can support her. It is a fact and nobody can deny it. I think at the same time a woman gives importance to how good is the guy, how nice he behaves to her, and how well he keeps her happy.

Money is needed for survival but not the dominator for any person whether men or women. I have heard that women are polite, smart, beautiful, wise, soft and calm by nature. So if any women is cruel, it means she has been made so cruel. According to me many men are involved in making the women cruel. Its just a joke.

i think nowadays there is a deep linking in many cases between money and women especially because all want money now..and so other things can pass on a low level!! So surely a man who have much money normally will have a great follw from othe people and especially women too!!So i don't know if this is a kind of rules considering the living now but i think is a consequence of the thoughts and models that society gives to the people..so the model is like that and many people just try to follow!!

No,i think woman are after man for love especially and to lead them.They also want man to protect them where money is the second thing.In this modern and challlenge life,of course all of us need money too,and money has become important thing in every thing we do.Man also after money too.Without money we cannot do anything and like people always say,no money no talk.It's not true that woman are after the money just because whe they ask man have money or not,it is because they worry if the family he want to build with that man will destroy and cannot afford their life just because no money.Thank you.
