      I hate to compare love with money because one is emotion and the other is material. If someone asked me "which is more important, love or loyalty", or "love or honesty"; some other character or emotional trait then it would be fair comparison.

      Love is important for emotional and personal development. Love of oneself, love of your family, love of your spouse, being in love....all that emotional stuff which makes you feel complete.

      Money in important for survival in this modern day world. The amount you have, earn or spend will determine how important it is to you.

      Money is not important for happiness.

      Love is not important for happiness.

      Happiness is a choice you make whether you have love or money. Happiness stems from that place where you feel peace of mind, mental balance and contentment. This should depend on you and NOT whether or not you have either love or money.

      Choosing your life partner should depend on what you want for your future. Are you seeking emotional security, financial security or both?

      There is nothing wrong with choosing to love someone rich, nor is there anything wrong with choosing someone poor just for love.

      If money is important to you then choosing someone for love alone may be a wrong choice.

      As I said your choice depends on what's most important to you.

        "One can love a rich man as easily as a poor man." Thats what my (well-off) grandmother told my mother. My mother married a guy just out of college. He had a watch to his name and music books in the trunk of my mother's convertible when they came to California. However, my dad did very well for himself.  My mother married for love alone and then look what happened! But those were back in the good 'ol days. Today a girl might have to be more practical. However. you really can't go wrong with love. You can go wrong with money.

        The ideal has been stated very well by Cardisa...very good advice, if you can follow it.

      Money IS important, very, very important.  However, make oneself successful first before looking for a partner on equal footing.   Remember, like ALWAYS attract like.  If one wants a rich man, a woman had better become as socioeconomically successful as possible herself.  Furthermore, THERE'S  such a thing as prenuptial agreements-rich/wealthy men are smart and can detect socioeconomic vampires a/k/a golddiggers miles away.  Chances are if one is a golddigger, she WON'T get a penny or oftentimes, extremely little in terms of monetary awards lest there be a divorce.    Wealthy men SELDOM, if EVER, marry women not in their socioeconomic circles. One has to be real here!  Just SAYIN'.

      HEY, PAUL, my kind of person!  Succinctly stated.  If one has MONEY, one can also BUY love.  Without money, nada.   NO ROMANCE WITHOUT THE FINANCE.    AMEN and a MULTILLION APPLAUSES to Mr. Wingert!

    So if money can't buy happiness, I guess I'll have to rent it~

    Love is forever. No one should rely on anyone else to support them monetarily. You need to support yourself so that when you find love, it isn't conditional. Usually when someone is in a relationship because of money, that clouds their idea of love because they're invested in the relationship for other motives. If you make your own money, finding true love becomes an easier task.

    As a woman who spent an eternity searching for a man to "save" me, I can say with great confidence that to be happy in a relationship, two people must love.

    I have been with rich men, poor men, and men in between, but until love sought me out, and I let it in, I was never happy; not really.

    The man I love is not rich with money. He has a great job, but we struggle sometimes. I would still rather be in a room next to him, doing nothing at all particular, than anywhere in the world. I would rather feel the heat from his left arm as he plays a stupid game on his phone than the heat from the sun at a Caribbean beach, alone or with someone I merely tolerate.

    My answer is, and always will be: Love.
