if you are being pressured into marrying someone that you don't love just because the guy is rich and spends a lot of money on your family. and you are being pressured by your whole family especially your mom, what would you do? (did i mention that the guy is like twice your age?)

I will fight against them,even they are my dearest people in the world.marrige is the result of love,not money.and I can not accept an old man who is older than me so many years,I am afraid that we do not have commen topics in the future.I will tell my mother that I will pay the money he has spend for us,but I will not marry him just because of this.

No.i am againests the forced marraige.arranged marraige or love marriage whatever it may bee decision of the people who are going to be married is very important.spending lots of money or being rich is not an imporant one .

I will never do that,I will choose my true love.but maybe it is difficult,I must face lots of pressure from that man,and my family,even the society.everyone know that,money is very important in the modern society,it can solve everything in my opinion. Please do not put your real feeling in your heart,and endure the all responsibility yourself.you can say it out in a frank way,to communicate with your parents,to that man.I think they will understand you if they really love you,they will never sacrifice your happiness for their own pleasure. Good luck to you,take it easy.everything will be okay,everything will be fine.
