what you say? should relationships be based on back balance.Would you marry someone just because he has lot of money.Are relationships in today's time only based on money where love is not a consideration. Would you like to marry someone whom you love,has moral integrity or any other guy who has lot of money.

I would never marry for monetary reasons If I do not feel a genuine love for somebody, and we do not share that special connection, then simply put, I won't bother starting a relationship with them Like the famous saying goes, money can't buy you love.

No amount of money buys true happiness. I know a lot of very un-happy people that are very wealthy. A happy, fulfilled life has nothing to do with financial wealth and the sooner you get this lesson in life the sooner you can focus an what really matters. True fulfillment comes from helping others achieve their dreams, and doing that without expectation or recognition will bring you closest to nirvana.

Nowadays you have to be practical so many give weight to money matters rather than love. Yes I will marry for money.

nah I would never marry just because of the money or bank balance. There are a lot of people that do though but personally if you did then the only person your cheating is yourself in my opinion.

Well i agree with you that money can't love but i feel that if there is no money love can't survive alone. Well thanks for your response.

Afcourse not. Love is everything on this world. The love makes people better. To marry for money -------------- this is the most stupped thing that one person can do. Everybody loves money but the Love is a one thing that we can't buy with money. I'm not marry yet but i will marry for my true love, the love of mu life and i'm not gonna marry for money. That's not good. Everyone must love someone because everyone must have some good guy only for him or her. Do not marry for money!!!!

Not quiet. Ithink the best of all is to marry for pure love, not for money. But in other way, is the best to marry someone nice with also a good cash background. In the both cases, I prefer the first one, marry for love, not for money. Is healthier and better.

My husband and I got married but had to save for it. My husband didn't get a job until a few months before our wedding, and I didn't get a job until after the wedding. So we had to mylot and do odd jobs for people to save up for the wedding. Of course we had the help of his parents when it came to buying some of the things. In any case, money does not make happiness... If it does it's only false or short lived! I believe that people should not marry for money because a marriage made for money to me is like not really loving someone. It's a disaster marriage, and is a shame! I believe that money is god's money and that all money we get should be saved and spent carefully. Of course that's not always so easy. With bills and then wants, it's hard to really save and spend frugally or thriftly... I firmly believe, however, that a man and woman should not marry for money. Whether or not there are many people who do, I am not sure.

for me, money is not that bad i dont want to say that i wouldn't like a man with lots and lots of it. as long as he has certain qualities that i know that i could live with, if he wants me then yeah i would agree marrying a rich man. cuz i know love and all that tingling feeling when you think you like some fades with time, and if you married a poor man and he cant sustain your family then it will cause a lot of problems, and believe me these problems can lead to separation. but if you marry a rich man, you and your children to be will be financially secured and thus your married life will not experience such calamities. a woman's heart is soft, it easily loves, so i think i would just do my best to learn to love him. but on the other hand if he has unbearable complexes then i dont care if he owns half of texas.

it depends. to be practical specially how hard life now, maybe i will, but as i said it depends. if the guy looks cute and still young then why not, its not hard for me to love nor like him anyway besides i can just take his money all the time and open a bank account for me or buy properties so that in any cases that the guy will divorce me then at least i have lots of money and properties and at the same time i can still look for someone who can love and i can love in the future. but if the guy is already old nor ugly then im sorry, i cant imagine myself kissing and hugging oldies feel like im hugging my father You cant follow love all the time specially in today's life. and if the guy is not that stable in his work then can love give you food to eat for every day nor to pay for expenses? how about if the two of them already have kids. you also have to think not just yourself but your kinds future too. i mean you must choose someone you love at the same time stable enough to have a family of his own, someone you c\think that can give a good future for the kids.

no i wont marry some one because of their money . marriage is a important and wonderful thing in our life and i think that money should not decide it . its always the love that should decide whether you can marry someone or not . i dont think that the marriage based on money will last for many time and their wont be much of a love in that marriage life . i will always marry only on love and never on bank balance and money they have .

I really could not do that. I really couldn't marry someone for money. I don't think that I'd be able to do it. I couldn't justify doing, if it were just for the money, if money was the only reason why I was marrying someone.

relationship should only because of love and mutual trust with each other. Money is also important for me but if I don't love or affection for the couple means I have wasted her life and playing with her feelings. Love is pure and can not be purchased with anything.

It seems that many people today would marry just for the money. I would never do such a thing though because you're going to spend a good portion of your life living with them unless you intend to break it off which I highly doubt is a good idea (probably because if they have money they have a lawyer). Love is the main reason people marry and I think it should stay that way.

hi! no way, I will not sale my love for some cash, never and never! I think love is something much bigger than than money, because love is in your mind and heart, and money is in your hand. Yes, they can warm you, can feet you, but can't warm you like the true and real love. Even the whole money on the world can't make that Love above everything

I would never marry for money.It is very true that the financial condition of a person matters as ultimately the expenses of raising a family have to be borne,but that does not mean that I will get into a relationship with someone only for having a financially secured life.This just does not fit my bill since I am an extremely emotional person and I give the utmost importance to genuine feelings rather than one's bank balance.I would fall in love with someone depending totally on what kind of a person he is,whether his attitude and outlook towards life match with me or not,and whether he cares for me or not.I would choose a man who is a better human being than one who is rich but emotionally shallow.

I wont agree to marry just because of money. The girl my wealth that is enough for me. The trouble comes when the girl I want only wants to marry for money.
