  • neither, i'd stay single.

    While love is great, if the man has no money or no chance at ever being a responsible adult and partaking in helping out with the finances then it won't work.
    poor, or at least trying is one thing, no money is another.. no money proofs lack of commitment on his part toward being responsible... and that's a poor characteristic. Been there did that. When there is NO money there typically are other issues that pop up as well.

  • Love over money anyday, which ie exacatly what I married, a young handsome Marine. He once told someone we didn't have any $ at 17, it was strickly a Love Affair, he made me so happy and proud. Love does NOT buy you happiness, it buys you THINGS.
