It's All About The Money Money!!!!!

There are some people I know of that it's all about the money and the price tag. I don't just quite get them... there are these girls I know that it does not matter if they are mistresses and have a lovechild as long as the man they are having an affair with has loads of money to give them. There is this one family friend who is married and has 2 children, her hubby has a decent work and he makes a lot of money but ever since he found out about her partying till the wee hours of the morning he controlled how much money he would give her. That did not stop her. She pursued this illicit affair with a married man about 15 years her senior. Since her hubby works abroad she can do all these wild stuff, she even introduced the guy to her kids and drag her kids to lie for her every time. And there is another acquaintance i know of who threw herself over a married man just because he has money, and she was the cause that that marriage broke down, and now they are living together and have 2 kids... I personally refer to them as predators... friends who would still your husband and tear your marriage and your family. I simply keep away from them or being close with them because they are bad news and every wife's nightmare. I don't mean to be judgmental but sometimes it's better to put on your distance. How about you, know anyone like that? How do you keep your marriage predator free? What would you advise a "predator" friend should she come to you for advice? Has it ever been about money for you once?

I told my husband once that I married him for his money, but we were pennyless students at the time...

This materialistic world has produced golden girls who are not only cunning and manipulative but are armed with sharpened razor blades that leave their victims penniless and deranged. They live by the motto 'No money No honey'! Woman are woman's worse enemy as they have no mercy on their own species when it comes to money.

It's a shame that people cannot automatically trust their spouse. I wonder what kind of person she was before she got married. Usually people don't turn selfish and greedy after getting married, they already are like that. But greed can grow, and it sounds like hers did. I don't like being around people like that either.

I know what you mean. There are people out there that will do anything for the almighty dollar. I have no respect for them and no time. I have a life to live. I don't worry myself with those that will take a husband..if mine goes for that stuff...he was never mine to begin with and I'll be glad to send him over. Sound harsh? I guess it does but there is just too much to do to worry about people that throw theirselves away for money...I make my own. I also do not keep company with shady people. I know them if I work with them or something like that..but as far as ever having the chance to come to me for advice..they would never feel close enough to me for that. I have to stay in control of my surroundings if I want to be happy. Bringing someone like that around me would be asking for trouble.

Yes i agree, there are lots of women out there who is not contented of what their husband can give them. There are also women that will do everything in order to have what their heart's desire-luxurious life, jewelries, designer clothes and lots and lots of MONEY. They will do everything just for this. They never realize that this are just material things-these can make them happy just for a while not for a lifetime.

after seeing so many situations i know money can bring out the ugliness in people and even show their true colors. it can even separate the lousy people from the truly good people.

These women might be attracted to married men that's why they're throwing themselves to them. That's another reason why I can't wait to get married. Just kidding. I also don't get them because they can always work and let their careers improve instead of just chasing married men who has a lot of money. I'm attracted to successful women who try hard to get by life and its struggles. They look responsible and smart, even though some really aren't.

There are always women and men that think money buys happiness. We have always been told in the Bible, novels, movies, etc that it never comes to any good. Major book that comes to mind is "The Christmas Carol" remember scrooge kept all his money to himself offering very little to others. Splitting up families is never good because someone has money. They are in love with the money and never care to know the person or package (children, family) that comes with it. Quite a shame. I also see young teens 12 years up that have no clue how to handle money either. If they know they have to HAVE something they rant rave and scream til they get it. I have even seen teens with their parents credit or debit cards. This is not instilling proper spending. to me giving an allowance and letting a child learn responsibility will enable them to become better individuals as taking priority over the money they make as well as their partners. Good Luck to your friends.
