in our class ,we have some discussion on this topic :What is more important :love or money.One group said that love is more important because there are somethings that can't buy by money .U can't live without love ,and one who has love from the other people around is the happinest man .But the another group said that money make our life comfort and nowaday ,u can't be a good husband/wife if u can't make money to feed ur family .Money is the base for love. And U? What do u think about this?

Hi dinhqanghuy, Love is without doubt more important then money. Of course it is necessary to have enough money get by, but we do not need a lot. Blessings.

i still think that love is more important than money... what for you have all the money in the world but you don't have the love from all the people surrounding you??? you will feel lonely and miserable... i understand that money is important to a certain extent... but when you die, you won't bring your money with you to the grave... and people won't remember you just because of how much money do you have but people will remember you for the good deeds that you had done to other people... so for me, love is still more important... i just need to have sufficient money to fulfill all my needs and a bit of entertainment... i never think of being super rich and loaded... remember, money is also the root of all evils as stated in the Bible...

Having been a have and a have not I'd say love is more important.... Not to say money is unimportant but it can only do so much for you..... As long as you have SOME money then Love is something you should seek but if you have NO money all the love in the world won't help you! lol I don't think I made any sense there. I hope some one more eloquent than me posted. :)

it depends.maybe you should change your question to'what do you choose between love and money'. absolutely money for me,if i have to pick one and give up another. as we know,money stands for some basic material needs.while love is something advanced and super,even luxurious refering to a piece of true love nowadays. i won't consider about development unless i have settled the daily requirement. while,if i needn't to choose one between them,i'll do my decision to get a better balance.anyway,it all depends.

I think that both are important. We cannot live without money. We cannot live happily without love. So I don't think that they are comparable to each other. You know, we do not live in a virtual world, but a realistic one. I insist on the importance of both.

Love is without a doubt way more importnat than money. Love makes me feel complete, without love, my life would be dull and lifeless. I disagree with the statement that you can't make good wife if you can't make money. Yes money helps you live and buy things that you need. Look at some of the celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan, Brittany Spears, Michael Jackson, they have millions of dollars, yet they do not seem happy. Money has only bought them misery. They are missing love in their lives.

well said kiran... i completely agree with you... money doesn't make people happy and most of the celebrities that have so much money are experiencing so much problem in their lives because of money... and yeah... they are sure missing love in their lives... so way to go love...

I'm going to provide a safe answer by saying they are equally important. But the love should be there first, because money can disappear as easily as it is made. If love is the foundation, then that will always remain.

I can see why each would think the way they think. Because without money you have stress in your relationship because of not being able to supply the necessities of life. That being said I think love is more important. Money is something that both can work towards. If you have love you have someone who will stand by you and give you moral support. There are things that you can't buy with money no matter how much money you have. It just doesn't matter. I say love is more important because you have someone who you can stand side by side and weather what ever gets throwed your way together. Money can't do that.

I must say, money can be the base for love. My husband once say, if he can't make money, we might as well feed our childrens rocks. To be honest, its not money that makes the love, but with money, it shows how much one is taking responsibility in their lives. I agree that you cant buy love, but to survive in this modern world, money is essential unless you're living in the jungle. People saying things like "we can live without money" is the kind of people who is still madly in love, living in their own world and have all the money in the world. Once they step into reality, thats when it all change..
