Like ok I'm watching maury lol, I know I watch a lot of tv and ok, but I was watching maury and this guy accepted $200 from his mother to break up with his girl friend. I say if you love this person and supposedly he did, then why would you accept the money. I could understand if you didn't love one another, but when you're love their shouldn't be any boundaries of the amount of money received to break up with your significant other. I know that I wouldn't accept any amount of money and if it was my mother or father offering the money I would ask why they would want us to break up and just go from there. What would u do in this situation.

let's just put it this way, supposing the amount is $50000. in exchange of you getting the money is to sacrifice your love for your partner, we just can't judge the person that his/her love isn't genuine. maybe he/she is really in need of cash due to some circumstances and you were left with no other option but to accept the money and to say yes to what was agreed on... :( on the other hand it could be possible that since the guy can't give a brighter future for the girl so instead of fighting for their love, he ended up thinking for what he thinks would make the girl more secure.

Well, yeah true but let's say he wasn't struggling finacially. I think the whole thought of him excepting the money period over his love just isn't right. Imagine if it was the man you loved and he accepted the money and during the act broke up with you. Would you feel the same let's say it was a smaller amount. I know I would be very upset if my husband had done that and i'd want a good explanation. But thanks for responding. Hope I didn't sound harsh.

no you don't sound harsh... :D it's okay... i guess i'll have to conclude that you were just so attached with the movie/tv program you're watching...

Clearly it was staged. Two hundred dollars, he surely did not care about the girl. I think if he cared two million would not matter to him

Cheap a$$hole. Clearly, what he was feeling wasn't love. He'd probably just buy another female to satisfy his need for one.

Whoa, If he truly loves her girlfriend no amount of money can ever replace her, I can say that his feelings is not very true for her. I also can't believe he took that money, whats more unacceptable is that It came from parents. If It were me I will definitely refuse and ask for a much higher offer (just kidding). But this is also a wake-up call for his girlfriend.

Yeah it should have been a wake up call for his girlfriend. But yet she took him back, that's something I couldn't understand either I would have never taken him back period. The day I found out he took money to break up with me would be the last day that we would be together.

I agree with you.. If I were in love, no amount of money would be able to move me away from my love...$200 will be spent in a couple days..Love is suppose to be forever..What a sad trade he made.

It was sad that he had taken that amount over the love of his life. So obviously he didn't love her much, that's my opinion.

Is that a movie? if it is really, then this guy is cheap... way too cheap. His love to his girlfriend is not real. Love can make people do anything for it. Just offer money and break up with his girlfriend then He is too stupid to do. Sometime, he just take the money but he never do what his mom asked tho, who know?

Nope if only it were a movie. This happened in real life. It does sound like a movie though huh? Lol. But I totally agree that $200 is cheap. I could maybe be understanding if it was one million dollars.

I don´t know who this Maury is as I don´t watch that show. I don´t even know how old is he. $200 seems to me a miserable amount, unless I´m 13 years old and I have a crush with this very non acceptable girl. If he is a grown up, I also wonder at the kind of relations he has with his mother. His mother is acostumed to buy him off, not to give him love and teach him. So I suppose he is the kind of person that doesn´t have the least idea what love is about as he didn´t even have it from his mom. Anyway, it doesn´t sound the type of show that I would see. I´m immersed in the CSI type of show, with lots of murders and very bright guys that solve the mystery in half an hour. Happy posting

I love watching csi as well. I definitely get hooked on that show and have gotten hooked ever since I lived with my mom and she watched it all the time. I totally agree with you on the whole situation though.

Wow! i haven't watched Tv in a while. But your right what type of person actually takes money to break up with there girlfriend. And only $200. bucks!! That's crazy. He must not truly loved her as he said. And what kind of parents would be actually offering to pay for them to break up. That to me sounds silly as well.. Or. It could be that Maury well, it's changed a lot from the 90's to now. Basically it's more like a Jerry Springer than it is like a Maury of how it use to be. So I wouldn't be suprized if it was rigged in someway too. But your right I wouldn't accept money to break up with someone I love. Basically I would have to hear the reasons of why they feel that person isn't the right one. And go from there. If my family can't work out how they feel about the person I am with. I wouldn't be with that person. I love my family more and would want that enduring relationship with them. But that again I'm very close to my parents. If I wasn't that'd be a completely different story.

Its starting to get that feeling of being like jerry springer and I wouldn't be surprised if it was rigged either, or it be headed in that direction. I totally agree with you on the whole family thing and thing is that he was close to his mother and during the whole show the mother did like her, so I don't understand why she did that. And the even more sad thing about it is that they are back together. I know if my husband had received money to break up with me and he did then tried to get back together with me I would not take him back. Although on the other hand they have a child together.
