  • ewwww. I think marrying a man about your age who has a college education and a good job is a wise decision but to just marry for money? no way!

  • LMBO!! Well..I have to say..this is advice I can hear from my own father, thats for sure,lol.
    I wouldn't marry for if there was LOVE AND MONEY...well hells bells..thats the jackpot! LOL
    But...I can understand why some think that way. Fatherss want peace of mind that thier baby girls are financially taken care of...they don't think about the mushy love and romance.
    For me...though...I love my guy..if I was looking for money when I met him I probably still wouldnt know his name to this day, haha. :)

  • LOL. Hmm doesn't sound like a bad idea, but only if they actually leave you the money they have to begin with lol and if you don't mind changing a diaper on an adult hahaha.
