I ask this because I have been in situations where my finances werent so great and the other person had to come through for me then down the road, they threw it back in my face. But then i know some people who have nothing and they are more content than people who have millions. Do you think that money is important to relationships because if you dont have it, it adds on additional stress to both parties involved.

Love doesn't pay the bills. Well, at least legally. Is your landlord going to waive your rent because you love your husband? Will the electric company waive your bill if you tell them you love your kids? It is how you use the money once you have it that determines happiness. Yes, money can buy happiness. PRoblem comes in when the money is spent stupidly, ignorantly, foolishly and greedily. People get alot of money and what do thay do...go buy high priced stuff, most of what they don't need, have not use for or just want so as to make themselves look good. Well, thing is, that money does't last forever. Once it is gone, you still have to maintain those things you bought and people don't think that far ahead which is why the problems start. Allocate your money wisely and it will last a long time and you can be happy!
