Be honest now would you marry someone for money. I would not know but I think when I was younger i probably would have. Funny how you change through the years.

I've never been tempted or even considered it. I've always been financially independent, which is good because it ensures that no man has too much power over you. Look at how far Anna Nicole Smith got by marrying for money. Do you think that her choices ever made her happy?

You know what they say money is the route of all evil, And by the way Anna Nicole Smith claims she was in love with that 120 year old man, and I can lift 700lbs. over my head.

I married for love and not money. However, if I was to start all over again, I think I would marry for both love and money. I don't think I could go through all the stress of rearing children and managing the household on a small budget ever again. If I was to turn back the clock, I would difinitely take money into consideration. However, things have worked out ok, and I am finacially stable and very happy.

Who knows! if my life was terrible, had no money, alone, homeless etc. and if that chance came along to marry a rich guy even though there was no "love involved"? I probably would! But since my life isn't like that, and I am happily in love, then no. I would choose love over money for sure.

I would never marry for money alone, it can be a factor to consider if someone loves me and I like her but not really in love with her. but it would be never for money alone.. anyway why a rich girl would love me anyway.. I'm just dreaming lol

That is a hard question to answer. On the one hand money would make things a lot easier. My mom had always said it is just as easy to marry a rich man as a poor one. What comes to mind is the fact that there are arranged marriages and they work out fine in most cases. Over time when two people live together you learn to love each other. The only hard thing for me is I would want love and if you are marring for money that is missing at least at the start of the marriage.

Money can change your attitude. For example you don't like this person you are about to marry, but she's or he's a wealthy man. After many days you will probably change just you have a new life to face.

Oh no, I feel sorry for those who are locked up in a marriage with no love...the feeling you have when you are even just in the presence of someone you love is like no other feeling in the world, money can't buy that.

Never, because I wouldn't be happy. I would marry for love... always. What is money compared to happiness? The more you have, the more you want and you end up lonely and miserable, despite what you have. No... is the simple answer I will give you. I couldn't possibly stay with somebody I didn't love, money or not.

I will not marry for money. Life is too short to spend on the wrong person. Unless I like the person. Then again, if I like the person, then it would be marry for love instead of money right? : )

money is necessity of life, but still there are things much above than money, suppose you marry a persone only for money and after marriage, he loses his money, then can you wonder how your life would be, so money is not the only thing in life
