Would you leave your spouse or partner for money? Why or why not?

Some people love only money. If someone offered to take care of you on the condition you leave your partner or spouse, would you do it?

I would never leave my spouse for money. Call me old fashioned, but I honestly believe that I would rather be loved than bought!

money is nice, but there is no money that can replace a sweet kiss goodnight and falling asleep in someones arms that makes you feel safe and complete.

A dear friend of mine was very wealthy and could never find love except the true love of her husband of her youth, he didn't need her money, he loved her deerly, but she divorced him after a year of marriage at a very young age (married 19 & divorced at 20).

Now, I'm don't havea partner or a spouse or anything but I would have to say no. Because the way I see it is if I cared about someone so much that I would want them to be my spouse, why would I want to leave them for money? If I did thenwhat was the point in being their spouse in the first place?

though I am divorcee but never for money one should leave his or her partner that is what i feel. Basically it is the mental incompatibility for which people leave their partners.

i've had that choice before when i was choosing among suitors. i've chosen my husband though he's financially at the bottom of the line in comparison, far from being rich. his looks are not even extraordinary. it's the patient & genuine loving that swept me off my feet :) thus, leaving him now for money isn't a question at all.

No Way, happiness is not money and vice versa, money can always be got, but love, some people never find it.

Definitely not!!! I agree money is important..but not more important than love or values of life. Where's the commitment to a marriage if you are going to leave for money? What happens if the next person loses all that money?

I think love is more important tha money. Money is fickle, noone knows when it will leave you but if your beau TRULY loves you then he/she will be with you, in good times and also in bad times. There are plenty of people on this planet who are millionaires yet they are not happy. This is bacause there was also a time in their life where they had to choose between money and love and, they chise money. So now that they have the money, they are seeking love only to find people who are hankering after their money.

You're correct, it happened to my friend. She had wealth but not love.

No, I would not leave a partner or spouse for money. I know money is important, but if can leave someone just because of money, then you do not love the person. And it kinda says something about the person you are.

No amount of money would pay me to give up my husband. We've been together so long now that I honestly don't know what I'd do without him. Besides, money doesn't always insure happiness. I figure if you've got a good thing going, don't take a chance on something else.

There is no amount of money that can buy happiness. Some people get confused and think it can but in the end it doesn't. For me I rather have happiness than to be rich for an hour.

Naw, I've never been a lover of money. In fact, if I could I would cut it out of my life completely, but that is a utopian dream. Money is no substitute for love, but love, well that can be a substitute for money because it can bring happiness even the most dire of financial situations. I love abundantly, I spend sparingly. There's no competition.
