Would you marry for money?

Imagine you are single.  You know a wealthy man (he's has a business with 9-12 million in revenue of which roughly 30% is profit).  He's decent looking.  He's a decent, moral man.  He was a good husband and is a good father.  You've known each other since elementary school and it has never been a secret that he was interested in dating you.  You know that you'll never be madly in love with him--for whatever reason, he's not the type of guy who would ever sweep you off your feet.  He'll never be madly in love with you because he's not the romantic type who falls madly in love with anyone.  His wife died 8 months ago, leaving him 3 young children to care for.  He likes being married, likes having a wife to come home to and keep things running smoothly at home.  He's a devoted family man.  

So, if he asked, would you marry him?  

If it matters you made out with him at a party in high school.  It wasn't the best kiss ever, but it wasn't the worst either.

I am single but no I wouldn't marry for that reason. Of course, I'm just plain not interested in marriage.

Hmmm... If my hubby died then maybe... I could never imagine loving anyone ever again. So I guess I would

I'd consider it. It wouldn't be just for the money though.

Nope. If I'm not marrying for love, then I'm not marrying at all.

If I were single, I'd at least give it some thought.

That's the case.  Her husband, whom she dearly loved, is deceased.  She has two kids of her own--both older than his oldest.
