    If you're talking about a relationship, it's not fair to either party to be in it for the money, unless of course the person is shallow and doesn't care about using other people. to me, it's just wrong!

    I agree with moonfairy if its is an intimate relationship. But if it is for work, a business deal, etc., it may be in your best interest to deal with someone that has the funds to back up any transactions.

    Very interesting question. The knee jerk response is to say NO!
    However in reality no man wants his daughter to end up with a broke guy who has no future prospects of ever earning a decent living. Most fathers want their daughters to marry financially successful men. They just don't want their own women to marry them for money! lol
    Truth be told everyone is with a someone because they have (something they value). No one wants to be with anyone they feel has NOTHING going on for themselves. Some people go for looks, power, connections, personality, and yes even money.
    Men with money aren't fools. In fact quite a few of us were raised with the belief that if we became successful we "could have any woman we want". The fact that an 84 year old Hugh Hefner can "attract" 24 year old model types of women proves there is something to that theory.
    On the other hand it does not appear to work in reverse. Not many 24 year old guys would date a 84 year old woman no matter how much money she had. Traditionally men went after women for "beauty" and women went after men for "security". It's always been a case of people using what they have to get what they want. If both people know why they are with one another then it's up to them to decide what is right.

    What do you mean deal with someone? Have a relationship with someone who is rich? No, that is not nice. You are only thinking of their position and not of the person themself. Having a business deal with only someone who is rich? It depends. If they are known for not paying others back, then no dealing with them. If they have a low job but pay everyone back, its fine.
    Even though no father wants their daughter to have a relationship with a man with low pay, that is not up to the father. The daughter controls her relationships as she should. Her family might voice their opinions, however, they should have no sway in the daughters choice. For example, though my family hate my husband, I am perfectly happy with him.

    You guys all have very interesting but so different comments. Like @dashingscorpio said, most men goes for beauty while women tend to seek security. Im not here to debate whether its right nor wrong. Just looking to see what others think about this. Knowing it happens everyday.
