money is not the end of life if u marry someone who has got too much money but has no time for u then what?? u need to marry a human being not money after all. money is just a measure of someone's success in life. but then success is not only measured by money. i agree that money is required for the sustainment of the life but it is not the only constituent of love and life of everyone. while tying the knot, the nature of the person matters most because he/she will be someone who will remain with u life long so how u can tolerate if the person with whom u have tied the knot does not cares about u ??

to some people if you don't have any money then they may not marry you. Me on te other hand if you don't have a job & are a lazy bum then I'm not marrying ya at all.

why not? my husband was unemployee far before we get married, he only works for few month then resign and it always took a long time for him to finally found a job again.but i didnt left him and we even get married on feb 2006,that time he still not working.but the thing is he is trying to find a job so its not becoz he was lazy, and i appreciate his effort and i support him.now he found a good job even he got lower pay then me,but we are very happy,i love him so much and he is too.so money got nothing to do with love unless if the man is lazy then u better dump him :)

No - the number one cause of divorce is financial instability. I think that both parties of a marriage should be financially stable and both parties should be willing to contribute to the financial stability of the marriage. This does not necessarily mean that both must work outside the home, simply that both should work together to ensure that the family is financially stable.

I dont't agree with this. The number one cause of divorce is NOT financial instability, but relational crisis and dissatisfaction, not necessarily linked to financial problems. Indeed there are many couples with financial instability that "works" very well. It depends form the so called "coping abilities"...

I would marry for love because as a couple we could help each other to fulfill our dreams. But in case where my husband want me to stop working and be a full time housewife I guess he better have a stable job and must be able to give our future family's needs because I don't want my children to suffer the consequences of being poor. I'm not saying that I am against the poor but I simply want my kids to have a happy childhood just like mine. I want to provide them all the things that they need and want. I will not spoil them but as much as possible I would like them to have what I have when I was a child.

The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transform. Love possesses not nor will money be possessed, for love is sufficient unto love. Just cooperate him to get more money with your love making.

I think money matters a lot. I don't think it's good to start a marriage when you can't afford the basics. Don't even get started on having kids. If you don't have a good job with good insurance, how will you pay the medical bills, and basics after the baby comes. You can love each other a lot. But after time, with money problems. The fights will start.

Lets face it, we are in a world where money matters a lot. Love or no love a marriage is destined to be doomed if the couple is in financial trouble. I also belive that both partners should have almost even fininacial standing in a marriage, if one has a greater clout, that could lead to tensions as well.

When it comes to tying the knot money doesn't matter but at the same time it does. Remember one cannot survive on love and fresh air alone financial stability has to be there. Why I say this is when you're single and not so financially stable you can sustain yourself, but after you build your nest things are different there are 2mouths to feed and most of the times scuffles arise,tension builds up in men who are not financially stable and gives rise to misunderstandings.

Money doesn't matter at all. It does not determine happiness. If you can live with someone and struggle to mkae ends meet it will make you stronger. You will grow together! When you reach a point in your life when you have a lot of money and things you will be able to look back to how things were. It pulls you together. It makes your relationship stronger.

No, I would not marry someone who isnt financially stable. That is the #1 cause for divorce now-a-days.
