Love over Money?

May 27, 2011 6:37am CST
people choose LOVE over Money, coz they said LOVE can move a mountain, love can make you happy even if you do not have money. Love is priceless and is greatest gift of all. But why mostly in the real world , people broke up coz of Money or financial problems, people fight because of money, people kill because of money, people cry because of money, people die because of money. . ? If Love is more Vital than Money then why most people choose Money..? ...why some are easily attracted to Rich people, why some are easily idolize Rich people..? Why money is created if it causes some pain?

A few years ago the answer to this question was quite easy - it'll be love over money. However, these days, with the current situation I doubt people would still readily choose love over money anytime. I think it's more practical now and the whimsical feeling of being in love is often set aside for financial stability. Further, I think as we mature, we would want stability as well as love, though we can't really get them both - well at least don't get what we expect. Right now, my friends and I not just look for love but we also look for the possibility of having a family with the man we are with. We'd like him to know his responsibilities. I know of someone who used to go out with a guy who's a hopeless romantic. Everything he does is just cute, it seems he could make her poems and songs, and hold her hands into the sunset, the promise of wedding bells was always there. However, he never was interested to earn, thought that opportunity would only come to him if he waited long enough. Well, she left him in the end. I know it seemed bad, but it's difficult to love someone if they can't act on what they're saying.

base on the thoughts i collected, we really wishes for the best of everything for ourselves and for all the people we love but sometimes we cant really get everything what we wanted or even we needed because of some factors that we need to consider. If we talk about Love and Money, this two are in need as of these days... we can hardly survive if we don't have enough money for our daily living.. however , these days we hardly get real Love coz most of the people are scared not able to survive if their future partner cant sustain their future family's needs so some rather choose practicality , go for the one they not so love but can provide... but i agree with your brilliant idea and thank you so much for sharing it with US... i admire your thoughts about this discussion. :) thank you again . have a great day :)

Depend on the character of love. If it just a game of love, of course it won't be a serious thing, money is stronger than. But if it serious love, love is stronger than anything. I do belive it!

Hi emzpeed! For me money is useless if you're not happy, what's the use of having everything if you're alone and lonely, if you don't have that special someone in your life loving you with all his/her heart then for me it's not worth it.The reality now is people will only love you because of what you have and what you can give to them and that is a very sad situation to be in , I'd rather live a simple life at least I'm happy with the one I love....

wow... nice one. which is true, it is so hard if you almost have everything (material things) when you do not have someone to share it with after all... and you are right when you said money will be useless if you are not happy. because not everything that makes you happy can be bought by money... and it is better to share all what you have by the one you love.. :) but hope when you will loose all what you have , your love will not leave you and be with you still :)

Hi emzpeed: I think tyhat people chose money over love because money offer a feeling of stability and to have all in control but at the same time I think just as you have said, that love can move mountains and if a couple work together, they can create the stability the want for them and their family. ALVARO

realistic... i can sense you are a man of action and not only a man of words.. which i like.. hehe but going back to your point you are correct if we base it on our real world... and you are right in your point that if money will be utilize in good things then it will be beneficial to those who dream for their love ones as well... :) lucky will be your family for you not only provide care but also stability and security for the future... which is a great thing too :) have a great a life ahead :) thanks for the thoughts :)

i would go for LOVE :) as you said "love can move a mountain" but money can brake the moutain and place a mansion on it, but love can do both without much effort :)
28 May 11
you must be very in love right now.....hehehe you are lovely. hehe but if that someone break a mountain to create that mansion for the he / she loves then would you consider that one as "doing everything for the one he/she love" heheh and is it that bad to give too much effort for the one you are so crazy about because of love? heheh just saying... heheh :) but i know what you mean and i understand it :) hope you wer able to move a mountain too for the one you cherish the most in your life :) heheh thanks ^_^

if we make love for money.Or with a man for money then what is this love.if you love a man you must be willing to stick with it even without money and without anything. Because when two people ove can overcome everything and should not have significant money. They are needed but should not be leading in a relationship.Have a nice day!

brilliant. two people should overcome to any obstacle that has smething to do with financial problem coz two people should not let anythingelse overcome the love that they both share.... that is great! have a nice day too ^_^ thanks.

Money was created for only one purpose payment of goods and services. I'm sure the people who made and coined this concept never imagined it would become like this someday. Money has nothing to do with what's happening to people since it is just a thing. We are mainly the ones to blame for this for giving money so much value in the first place. Greed,too much ambition, and desperation are most likely the reason why people are doing what they do now.

im not so sure if there is a higher number of disadvantages of having "money" as part of our lives today.. however compared the life we had those days that technology are not so high , our need for money is also not that high... no much crime i guess.. hehe because of money there are increasing number of people being greedy and desparate of becoming rich. and Love, you are correct that it has always been there coz despite the bad things that had happened there are still those who cares and gives us the feeling of being cared despite of nothingness... :)

We can't deny that money plays an increasingly important role in our daliy life . We need to pay for our clothes, foods,medicines and so on. However i still think Love is vital than money,if a person earn so much money ,at the end ,he can't find the loved one to share with him ,what a sadness .While if you find your love one and then work hard ,i think it's better than the former. What do you think so ?
28 May 11
you are right in some point that money is a need for our daily survival however not all end up having no love at all.. hehe and some can afford to find a way to decrease sadness.. hmmmm well it's a case to case basis.. :) but i like your point too..

Love without money is hard to live in this cruel world because we need money to live well, but Money without Love is a deepest sadness in your life because you can't buy love, because we need to love to fullfil our life and happiness. Both is our need to live and were lucky if have both but if we need to choose is a matter of circumtances we face it and what your priority in life. But the end to the days it is in our own hands to choose what good for us. When they ask me love over money? I'll choose LOVE because when im with my love one i have to strength to carry all the burden and strength to work harder for them and i have a reason to live happy and contented. With LOve I can earn money but With money you can't earn true love.
