  • Of course it's better to marry for love. if you marry for money, the relationship won't last.
  • That depends what you want out of the marriage. If you want money than marry for money if you want a relationship then marry for love. BTW if someone marry's for money and the realationship ends why would they care if they still have the money. (alimony) :) Edit: As I said it depends what someone wants out of the marriage not everyone marries for love. There are people who care about money more than love. Sad but true. BTW I never said that I agree with marrying for money but then as you know not everyone agrees with me. :)
  • It is better to marry for money. It is easier to make love than to make money.
  • The only answer to your question is to marry for love. when times are tough and you are down on your luck, there is nothing, nothing that helps, other than your wife or hushand. they are your best friend. try talking to a stack of 100 dollar bills and see if you receive any comfort. i wonder how many people, married just for the money, that are now divorced? money can come and go. but, the love of a good mate is forever. ever heard of cold, hard cash? its not that way with a soulmate. if you are still in doubt, just listen to the words of the beatles song, Can't Buy Me Love!
  • Love. If you're a gold digger who only marries someone because they are rich and a big shot.. then I'm gonna put it rather bluntly and call you greedy and selfish. Look around you. What about the people in third world countries that are dying every day? If a rich person is so selfish that they keep their money and don't offer it to those less fortunate, it's not saying much for that person, either.. so I think that would only breed a marriage of hatred and selfishness and a "I WANT MY WAY" type of marriage. It just seems wrong. Love is selfless. In love, you don't expect anything back.. so how is marrying for money better? Definitely love.
  • It is far better to marry for love. You need emotional support through hard times more than you need money. Even if you are dirt poor, the best thing you can have is someone who will always be there, not some cheating sleazeball only wanting a good time, or someone who pays no attention to you. Because they know you're going to be worse off without them, they think that will make you stay, when really, you don't need them. You may think you do, but it's much better to marry someone you love, and then make your own way. Marrying for money only hurts you because you may not be able to leave freely. If you have a steady job, or can get one with decent skills, do it. You have to have your own money, not be relying on someone else. You rely on them for emotional support, but in finance, rely on yourself.
  • There is no one definition of love - love has different meanings for different people. We are all vane because we are human, so whoever brings out the best of us has the most chances to witness our life - of course, if we are smart enough to realise how important that is.
  • Well, you should always marry for love, however, you marry who you date, and as I told my daughter, it is just as easy to fall in love with a rich man as it is a poor man. So if you date only rich men, then you are most likely going to fall in love with a rich man. But she didnt take my advice, married an ex-con drug dealer, had my grandson, he got put back in prison and now divorced and trying to take care of her son. WHich she has done very well with, went back to college and is now a nurse and doing very well. So, there you go. Life is crazy sometimes,,, LOL
  • It is unfortunate that marriages begin with "love" and die because of "lack of love," but still technically survive because of money issues. I don't know what's more important. It seems as though if people thought that love was truly more important they would stay or leave despite financial reasons, but this is not the case. So, it is money that rules, not love.
  • would and did only marry for love. money will never buy happiness, and I would rather be poor and happy than rich and miserable.
  • I married for love. we had just come out of teachers' college and had nothing. my engagement ring bankrupted us (and believe me it was at the bottom end of the market). But I loved that ring, and I still love the one who gave it to me. we are 27 years married this year, we have a house (with a mortgage) two lovely daughters, and each other. With God over us, what more do we want? Money? Well, it would be nice to pay the mortgage off, but that will happen eventually.
  • Marriage? What's that?
  • i would marry for love only. in life i want to do what makes me happy inside. money doesn't solve all problems. besides being happy is the only thing that matters. not wealth, not rank, not statisis(spelt wrong).
  • Marriage for love - been there done that. Marriage for money - uh no, I'll make my own!
  • first love then money..........in islam there are four principles for marrage and their importance is as below 1.pity 2.beauty 3.wealth 4.anscety( from good family)
  • I wanted to marry for love until my fiance got nervous three weeks before the wedding and called it off. One of his main concerns was that any future decisions he made would somehow affect me. He couldn't stand the thought of being responsible for someone else's happiness like that. Even if you really love a man and think he really loves you, nothing in life is certain. You can't always depend on someone even when you really think you can. I'm not sure I trust love anymore, so now I'm thinking about going for money.
  • Love, hands down!! Money is always nice but it doesn't keep you warm at night...
  • Money of course. Love lasts for what... a few weeks, a month or so. But money! Money, in a proper savings account, could last a lifetime.
  • I have been in relationships where I loved so much and ended up getting so hurt. A hurt that I promised to never feel again. So in my mind now, its better to marry someone that has enough there to learn to love... Money can be one of those things.
  • It is better to marry for compatibility. Love and money are more fleeting.
  • Dangerous situation that is... Ideally you'd want both! I see it like this.. you can marry for money but if you never learn to love each other... it could be a disaster. There are no bigger fights in a marriage than the money fights. Id rather marry for love and deal with the bills. :D
  • Love. F*ck the rest.
  • both ;)
  • I know that money makes the world go round but it cannot give you the things that love can,plus being happy in this cold cold world is very important because everybody needs love.
  • Love, because money can't buy the connection and intimacy that comes with it.
  • Money is not a good foundation to build a lifetime on. MOney can disappear and then where are you? Money isn't satisfying and can leave you lonely. It can't bind two hearts together. It's love or it just isn't anything.
  • Love is safe
  • Well I actually found this site by typing in this question marry for love or stability? It brought me here...I always think about this and wonder what is truely the best. Of course we all want to marry for love but what if we never really find that one person that really gets a hold of our heart? I'm currently in a situation that really is wearing me out mentally. I have 2 guys that want to marry me. One is someone I have known for over 5 years and we were together and shared a house for about 2.5 years. I got tired of being the live in girlfriend without the commitment of a future I wanted a ring and never got it from him so gave him a warning that I was going to move out if he didn't give me that commitment. He didn't think I would actually leave. I told him not to chase after me with a ring later when he figured out what he lost...but sure enough he has been chasing me for 2 years now wanting me back and wanting me to marry him. Inbetween this time I dated a little and met another guy that I have been dating for over 8 months now. He is also serious about me and wants to marry me in the future but wants me move in with him now. I feel chemistry with this guy but financially he isnt stable at all. He owns nothing and has no savings. Mt ex boyfriend is very financially stable and owns a house, business and drives a BMW. I would have the life with him and could be a stay at home Mom. The other guy we would struggle financially and probably live in an apartment for awhile. My parents always seem to lean towards the one with the money which always gets me mad. I remember being with him and money didnt make me happy. But I'm getting older now 31 and I need to think of my future. Do I have 10 years for this other guy to maybe get finacially stable if he ever does? I'm so confused..I feel so torn I dont who to be with and they are both putting pressure on me to either be with them or let them move on. I'm so scared of making the wrong choice.
  • Well, Money don't buy me love (Beeeeeeeeeeatles =)
  • I think marrying for love or marrying for money is a mistake: Both love and money come and go. I would recommend marrying for trust. I would recommend marrying someone you believe will stick to a commitment. Marriage is not about love. Marriage is not about money. It's about staying committed to eachother in good times and in bad times. Marriage is a contract, and I would recommend marrying someone who will honor the contract.
  • um... love... thats why your supposed to get married, to someone you love ;)
  • Honestly I think it depends on the person. I'm a die-hard romantic. A life without love is hard for me. Money is irrelevent for me. But, there are people who don't feel empty without love. A marriage for money may actually be a better option for them.
  • marry for love sister. It's the only way. Marrying for $$$ is shallow.
  • Is this a serious question?
  • for love of course...but it would be cool if they had $ as well...less problems in life.
  • I wouldn't narrow it down to having to choose ONE. I want BOTH!
  • It's good to marry for money. It's better to marry for love. It's best to marry for both love and money :o)
  • Funny how life leads you to websites with these questions…will never get married to many hang ups in my opinion, how ever the thought of spending time with some one made, it seems just for you does sound intriguing in some weird way…I best motto is to let life live it self…and then you just jump in at some point and enjoy it
  • Money, at least when you divorce, you can walk away with some of it
  • Money will surely run out. True love is like an artesian well.No bank is big enough to hold this great value.
  • Love can faid money can be lost. but love can carry you when you have nothing else left.
  • Is that even a question? Love. You can be happy without a ton of money, as long as you dont blow it all.
  • depends on who you are, and what matters in your life.
  • Love............unless he/she has billions & are willing to give you half lol ;)
  • I would marry for love but do want some financial support. Unless we had a agreement that one of us would be the bread winner.
  • Well one is love and one is prostitution. Not that I'm against prostitutes, but intuitively, I'll say love is a better basis for marriage.
  • I was told by first true love that sometimes there are things just more important than love. We truly loved each other. That thought she had broke my heart. We went our separate ways. I never could understand that. Still don't. Now I am much older and still have not found a woman that could make understand that love is the most important thing in the world!
  • Marriage is a a commitment of love to share lives together. If you want to think of it only as a business contract, then the answer is obviously money. But if you've been in love, and know that real love does last, then you are obviously above and you will choose to marry for love, and of course, work together to make money. CHOOSE to marry for love, is not the same as Having to marry someone for the money. Although you choose the amount of money, you will always be poor inside =) Funny Quote of the Day - Joe E. Lewis - "The way taxes are, you might as well marry for love."
  • Marry for money because then you will have both. We all "love" "money"
  • Love. If you marry for money you will earn it.
  • Why not both?
  • Honestly, it is better not to marry at all.
  • Love... But money is certainly handy too XD
  • Love. With hard work you can almost always make your own money. If not I would still rather be poor and in love.
  • I would say, a combination of both, but once you've married, then you and your spouse can come together to make plans to make MONEY!!!!
  • If better is judged by duration than I would say it is what works when both agree to or at least accept whatever reason "til the end of time. If one does for for a different reason that the either cares not to than it won't last. For both that are into the conventional head over heal type of relationship - for only love , honor, ect, ect. For those who believe the one with the most toys wins - you gotta go for the bucks. Not sure what I personally believe about the reason{s} for marriage.
  • i would rather marry for love as love is more rewarding then money
  • People get married for different reasons, you will have go for what's in your heart. If I was really really desperate for money and a golddigger, I would marry for money. If I really loved someone and felt I couldn't live life without her, I would marry her based on that.
  • I have to say love. I've dated guys with a good amount of money and that's all they cared about. after awhile of not seeing the person due to work you begin to wonder what they like more-you or their pay cheque?
  • Love, if you marry for money then what are you really marrying for?
  • if u dont know then i cant halp you.
  • To marry for Love and have your partner have money is a great combination. If you can only choose one then they say that Love flies out of the window when money goes out of the door
  • Whatever is more important to you.
  • Money. I say this because I sincerely believe that if you have to ask, you're getting divorced anyhow.
  • Depends!!!! If you are poor then go for rich one. and if u r well settled then find love.. Simple!!!! Although i need money hahahahha
  • Sonmeone once said the first marriage is for love, the second marriage is for money,and the third is for fun. Why limit yourself :o)
