Would you rather marry a poor man with a kind soul or a cruel but rich man? A time-tested question no doubt, a yardstick to measure the direction that humanity is heading to. Discuss.

I personally don't care about wealth or kindness, actually.

What do you care about then?

Compatibility. I have always had a high list of standards. I don't care if a guy has money or not, it really doesn't make any difference to me. And kindness and sensitivity can get boring and annoying. I like a guy with a dark sense of humour and a sadistic streak.

It's difficult to answer your question. In love there is no choice of his worthiness but it is choice of your heart. for me I will love and get married with man who give me feelings.

Yes, it is indeed difficult to answer this question as one may also be in love with the "rich, cruel guy", who gives you hell. But somehow, you want to stick with him! This is one of the many dilemmas in the original question.

I would pick the poor man, I choose to be a poor man with a kind soul. A good heart is a real treasure than anything else in this world. What good is it to you that you own everything but your were like a slave or something, with a poor man you have both the ability to work right? You can be happier than being enduring in pain. Thats my take.

A poor man with kind soul. There's a high probality of a poor man becoming a great man when he has a kind soul. While one is rich but cruel, his character will bring him down in later stages of life. I'm someone who's willing to suffer for long term happiness. We live for the future, and future needs to be build up. Things that comes too easy will be gone just as easily too.

Rich man with riches. Marriage for me doesn't mean love, just co-existence. The cruel part is harder to tolerate. But if he's with violent tendencies I can always make his life a living hell. And when I'm rich (duh) I can hire the best shark lawyers and label myself 'the bish ex-wife'. So be warned.

i think that is difficult for me to answer,because love is a feeling,if we feel good and comfortable,we should stay with him nomatter how poor he is .

Ahha, it would be better if you marry a rich guy with a kind soul~ If you have to choose one form them, I prefer the former. From my point of view, having a golden heart is much better than being rich. Fortune can be earned by your hard working, but kindness is just a blessing. Nowadays, we suffer from the pression of without money. So, most of us like to be rich. But, I have to say, being a nice person comes first.
