It is common to see parents looking for brides and groom with good financial stadning.Is money the only consideration in marriage? As elders, should not they be wise enough to understand that love is more permanent than money? A marriage based on financial consideration will only sustain because of societial pressure and not on mutual love and affection..

I will marry for money.though it is really recommended that a person should marry because of love,it is not really practical.I have to think about my children's future.I don't want them to be deprived of the good things in life.I do want to marry for love and money,but if it is not possible,I will choose money.

Imagine a hypothetical situation. U married a man for money and didnt have even one bit of love for him. If per chance he became financially broke, did u imagine ur condition? u will have neither money nor love.thx think over

I think mylotters are tired of discussing this topic. I will mary for love and money. I don't want to lie saying I will marry for love. Money takes the second rank here and love takes the first rank. I don't think there is a point in marrying a beggar for love and my parents don't expect me to do that. I don't want to make them sad.

u said u will not marry a man for love alone, means money is also a criteria for selection.. but remember one thing. If u marry love, ur man will see to it that he will do anything to keep u happy even if he were to sleep empty stomuch... but in money marriages, he will love his money more than u thx think over

I am not going to lie, while I am marrying for love had my fiance had a bad job where he could not support me and children I would not have been interested. So I want love but I also want stability, no one wants to live on the streets.

yes i know we cant live on empty stomuch. we surely need money. when i meant marry for money i meant greed. In some countries grooms demand hefty amounts as dowry before marriage.. Thx

They are looking for financial stability of their children. For them safety first. But true love doesn't come from any where and every where. Money can come from any where and every where.

we think elders are always right... need not be. they too make mistakes.. finance is needed but not at the sacrifice of love..thx

I will marry for love definitely. I cannot connect money with marriage...money is imporatnt at all times not only while marriage. So money should not be the deciding factor for marriage. Money is important too but not equal to love.

yes where there is love there are compromises. when there are compromises in a family, there is understanding. Where there is undestanding there are fewer quarells and fights. Couples adjust to life within their means right? thx

Well,i think both is required for marrying.Bcuz if you dont love then it is not good for married life and if you dont have money then nothing will stand in your life.

For me love and money is equally important. But of course the person that I love is not necessarily is a rich man. At least he need to have a stable job and financial is stable. We as a human can not live without money, don't you agree?

yes its fair to expect wht u stated... what i meant by marry for money that there should not be any exchange of money in marriage as consideration like dowry in India. It has only to be an unison of two hearts and not two bank balances...thx

In an arranged marriage,parents will not focus on money alone.They look for the family background,their reputation,economical as well as educational status,caste,source of their income,etc,etc...Parents will not ignore money just like that.Because we need it more.But if you are going for love marriage,then love stands first but to nourish that love even after marriage you need money.Cheers!

just before this bubble of the software burst, there was a craze amongst parents to get their daughters married to SW engineers. You think they made proper enquires about the family background? if so there is a 50% divorce rate in the IT industry.. They were only looking at the financial aspect of the groom or the bride.. think over thx
