  • No! I wouldn't wanna waste my life like that. If I wanted money, I'd make the money & get off my butt, but nope! prego brain stays home for a few more months !

  • I married for love twice, and love does not bring security. You cannot eat love. Love does not pay your bills or help you sleep at night knowing you aren't going to lose your home. If I could do it all over again, YES I would marry for money and security, instad of love. Oh, and just because YOU love the man you marry, there's no guarantee that he truly loves you in return.

  • That depends. ...if i had one man i loved asking me to marry him and another man i didnt love but who had money asking me to marry him i'd choose the guy that i love. ...but if i was single (i'm married for love) and some rich guy was asking me to marry him and i had no reason not to i probably would!

  • no way, men with money are jerks, they think they can get away with anything, . it doesn't matter what someone can do for me financially. It has to be on an emotional level

  • I didn't marry for money, but I DID marry potential! When hubby and I met he was in medical school. I knew that if we could make it work (by being supportive and understanding of his need to study/residency/hours), that it would benefit both of us and our children in the future.

    I chose to date men that had solid futures. I grew up piss poor, and wanted more out of life--which is why I bettered myself and went as far as earning a Master's Degree, established my career and had been earning a 6-figure income, when I met my husband.
