I will choose to marry a wealthy guy. I realized that a lot of people still prefer to stick with the old adage, "money is not everything." But money means your survival. It will be an added bonus if the marriage turns out to be a good one. A good job can only give us a temporary fulfillment. Mostly, we are courting pressure and stress that comes with having a good job. I guess I'm just an old cranky bunny who is beginning to feel weary with the jobs and tasks that I need to undertake everyday.

i agree with you charms88. if i were a woman i should have done the same thing. i will choose a wealthy guy. i am just being practical because it's really hard to find jobs with good pay these days. and as you said, if the marriage is okay, count it as a blessing.

The foundation of marriage should never be based on wealth otherwise it will fail miserably and you may be left with nothing at all. Besides, it's easier to quit a job than to get out of a marriage. So, obviously, I would pick a good job.

Why are you thinking about quitting even before choosing.

I am already married to a wonderful person and I know I can't ask more happiness in life than this life with my hubby. But as you are giving choice I will I will choose one. I would definitely go with choice number 2. The main reason of this is I would like to marry only the guy whom I love, so their is no question of wealth. Second if I can have a good job with all facilities and happy living, I can marry my love and can live happily for the whole life. With this choice ultimately I can get both wealth and my love.

I have done the second one. My current job, though it doesn't pay much to make life uncommonly comfortable, is something I am happy about and proud of. I don't get to have all kinds of luxuries through it, but I do get the chance once in a while to enjoy as a privilege what those with money enjoy as a right pertaining to their status. My job enables me and my family to have meals at mealtime, a car in the garage, private school and personal computer for the kids. But enough of this. Now I want to be reincarnated and in the next life I WOULD DEFINITELY AND IRREVOCABLY CHOOSE THE FIRST ONE!!!!!

well i would prefer to have a good job with all kinds of facilities.. having job satisfaction is something very important to reduce stress related problems and heart problems.. If you have a good job then you can also get married to a rich girl but you wont be able to get a good job after marrying a rich girl..

dahling, the grass is always greener on the other side. hear this from an experienced lady who has a nice job that pays like OK, a non-interfering husband (she can spend her own money), and generally enjoys her own independence. even then she sometimes yearns for a life where she can just put her tired legs up and a bevy of servants would be at her beck and call. and what would she be tired of?? why lunching out and partying, of course! she would have nannies to take care of her child and maybe after a late night party, she'll just take a peek in the nursery... but with a rude thud, i'm brought back to reality and even now, honestly speaking, i don't know which life would be more desirable. however, as an afterthought, i think marrying rich is definitely a wiser option, but you have marry very very rich, otherwise you will not be admitted into the halloed portals of upper society life, where the real enjoyment lies.

If I would be given the choice, I would choose to have a very good job. I would actually prefer to be single. But then, I figured I have to complete the cycle of life somehow. Right now, I have my career at full-bloom and I've never been happier. I believe that there's no other way but to go higher. So, I have actually achieved what I wanted already. So far, I'm still single but I like this single-blessedness. I'm just worried about the need to have my own family. Well, whatever's meant to be, will be, I guess. Happy myLotting!

I will choose option 1 because it the better way to enjoy life than the second one.marriage gives a status to a girl/guy in the society and if accompanied with luxury life i will never leave that option go off. Good job cannot fulfill all happiness that human beings need in life which is of a short span.We cannot live just working with a white collar job till we die.there are certain happiness apart from this.

I personally would choose a good job. You can be independent if you have a good job. Saving money and not depending on the wealth of another person. A marriage with a wealthy person could change at any time due to the fact that they do have wealth. They don't have to worry about anything. Depending on how they got their wealth they could decide on a whim that they are tired of you and leave you. A good job on the other hand is steady and you have the pride of knowing that the money you have you have earned.

I'll definitely pick number two. At least because I don't like the idea of owing anything to anybody. I want to earn a living through my own powers not anyone else's. And I am not too fond of luxury anyway :P

Um, theres more variables to it then that. I'd really want to have both over all, but only if it was a guy I was definately in love with, and only if the job was a job I really wanted. If both of those were true, I'd be happy with either, but I would really want both.

If practicality applies, I would choose the Rich Guy. BUt I've already falllen in love with a guy who isn't that rich. But I feel the luckiest girl when I'm with him. So I think that's enough.

Right now I don't have a job because I migrated to the US to marry my fiance who lives in the US...... It hasn't been easy because I was happy working as a junior doctor in Australia and now I have to sit a whole barrage of exams for medical boards in order to become registered here....and I really am thinking of going along another career path. I currently do virtually all the housework and cooking except I don't get paid. My husband earns a good income, more than most families but he still wants me to get a job.....sigh there are times I wish a well-paying job could just rain on me without me having to study all over again. I'm almost tired of life
