Love or Money ?

What is more important to you love or money ? If someone offered you a million dollars to leave your spouse and not look back , would you take the money or would you remain with the person you are with ? I for one would have to say no thanks to the money . Not that it couldn't help out a great deal but I don't feel money is any good without love and happiness . Just curious to how other's feel .

Having been sort of in this situation already, I made my choice. LOVE. MY husband comes from a very poor family, who (sorry hunny that i use this example) but they couldnt afford water when he was a boy, so they bathed in bins in the yard that filled with rain water. My family is snobby and very well-to-do. Never noticed it much growing up, but I met him and instantly fell in love. When I brought him to meet my family, he was rejected. Because he had no money. My mother offered me a brand new car, and an apartment that she would pay for, if i would move back home and stay away from him (he lived 2 states away). This was a great offer to a 19 year old. But as I packed my things to go to her, all my heart could think of was him, my love. And it started hurting thiking I would never see him again. I left that night,left all my things behind and went with him. Life was rough our first few years. After hard work and determination, and our Love overpowering all the hard times, we are now stable and happy. Not rich by any means, but VERY HAPPY. I wouldnt trade it or the world! Married now 10years :)

That's a very easy question to answer. If I was offered ten million dollars, I would still decline it, and stay with my spouse. Money cannot buy a person and I couldn't be happy with the money if I didn't have my spouse. I think I should show him this response just so he will know how much I care about him (laugh).

lol dont blame me for this, but if anyone would offer me a million bucks i would definitely leave my gf. coz i dont have enough money to buy her stuffs. i need money coz its getting harder to keep the relation bcoz of my pocket is empty. she needs to go to yoga, she likes junk food, her birthday is comming up and i dont have any money! things are getting messy day by day.

if i was truly in love with someone then i think i would stay with that person. but if it is someone that i just hooked up with and had no real feelings then i would definetely take the money and not look back.

Its really a ticky question. But i want to say that Love definitely is more important than money. Love can propel you to greater heights. Who says its not possible to earn 1 million dollars when both of you work hard to it? In that i have said, explains a lot more than what i need to :)

Trick question here. My fiance and I once had this talk...lol. We schemed up a plan in case this ever came about. Love is definitely more important...so we decided that we would take the money, pretend to split up and then move to another country or something and live rich! It sure sounds good, but if it was only one or the other, I would take love! My fiance means the world to me!

Money comes and go. But love is difficult to find. I won't leave my family. I can have that million with my own efforts anyways.

Oh well. money is just a matter. we cant deny how much money is useful and an offer of about a million dollars??? thats hella big money so hard to decline :) But if you'd think clearly, money isnt everyting and it cant buy true happiness. Id rather be poor with just a cent than lose the one i love. Money is everywhere, you can earn it in exchange of work effort but the person you love is just single and only one the entire world has got.

Well I would not leave my husband just for the money, I love him dearly and no matter how much money it could never replace the love that we have for each other and just because someone was offering me the money that does not mean that I would be happy and live a happy life.

I would have to go with love.when it comes down to it. money isnt a priority to me. I know i need it so i do what i have to to get it, but if I had to choose i would choose my family and be broke, rather than money and be lonely. :)

hi there, if i had to choose them options from money or love, then i would choose love because i wouldn't leave my partner now for money. i ave been with him for too long now and we have a nice family together, i would just wait to get money and keep my partner, i can't imagine life without him in a way to be honest! :)

Well, it depends on the situation you're experiencing in your married life. Meaning, no matter how much you love your spouse, though he always says he loves & cares much for you too, yet, he continues to hurt your feelings over & over again even after everything you've done for him just to make him realize his mistakes. But, he still goes on giving you problems or if the spouse cannot stay faithful to the marriage, then, i would choose money over him. I might stay in love with my spouse but i dont have plans of becoming a martyr wife. I dont want to look stupid all my life having to deal with unfaithful husbands. I'm just being practical in this given situation. I would rather choose to live alone with my kids than live in misery forever with an unfaithful & dishonest husband. So, at this point, money comes in handy for me & my kids' future. But, if he is worthy enough for the love & affection, then, i wouldn't trade him for anything else in the world.

I would never leave my husband for money! NEVER! Money cannot make us happy. Love, true love can make us happy. I have never had much money in my lifetime but I have been blessed with true love and I am very happy. You have heard the saying "We can never get enough of what we dont need". I find that quote to be true. People who want more and more money, never seem to get enough of it and they never seem to be happy.

Not for all the money in the world. Money does not buy happiness and I think in a lot of cases all it really buys is more trouble than it's worth. great discussion.

I would say no to a million and stay with my partner if I was in this kind of choice. We can't buy true love with a million, we can't buy the good feeling with our partner. Money sometimes can be very helpful. But when it comes to love, or some other close realtionship, money looks so weak to me.

To me the most important thing is money without which no one would be considered. We must never compare love with money. Love is fully the feelings and money is not like that. the more we work hard, the more money we earn. But even if you work hard, you cannot get love. Its purely the feelings. Hope you agree with it.
