    Why do women refuse to believe that money is an extremely important component regarding

    entering a relationship?

    I believe what generally happens especially if it's a woman under the age of 30 is they think more in romantic terms at the start of a relationship. Money is not all that important to them if they are "extremely attracted" to the guy. In fact the truly romantics can turn cheap dates into memorable/special times ( a picnic in the park,  a walk on the beach, matinee movies, free concerts in the park...etc)
    Things however tend to change as pressure mounts if the couple gets married and has children. Added cost of day care, diapers, family insurance deductions on payroll, baby food and other assorted items, rent/mortgage, gas, clothes, car repairs..etc can create tension if there are not enough funds to meet those expenses. Dating while broke is not that big of a deal but if you are married and broke especially if you have children you are not going to be "happy" very often. Awhile back I wrote a hub 5 Reasons Why Men Should Not Get Married, which could easily apply to women as well. Being in significant debt is one of those reasons. Plan ahead. http://dashingscorpio.hubpages.com/hub/ … et-Married

      Dashingscorpio, finally a person who agrees with me.   I concur with your statement a million percent!

    Why?  Do men believe it is an extremely important component entering relationships?  I don't think it has much merit at all.  If you like someone and care about them, it shouldn't be a problem.

      Wake up to the REAL world, money is a very component in relationships.   I KNEW that when I was 13 years old!    No romance without the finance!

      You're very narrow minded to think that money is the root of everything.  We're living off pennies for the past four years and we are very happy together.  having low income doesn't define who we are or our relationship, maybe u should try it!!

      Money is important in a relationship.   If you want live low income, that is YOUR business!   I am upper middle income and prefer not to live from hand to mouth!   No romance without finance!   If you love poverty, fine!   MONEY defines RELATIONSHIPS

      I dont have a choice living low income actually!  we're both putting ourselves through college, but it has NOT affected our relationship!  You must be a very arrogant to think you need money to be happy!  What about the poor?  Can they not be happy?

      If you are a student, putting herself though college, that is admirable. I applaud you for that!  This shows a remarkable work ethic.  You will be a successful woman, hopefully a famous one and I wish you luck and a high level of success!

    Because they believe in love? I would never get involved without a man that was well established financially. I did that once and learnt the hard way. I guess I had been brainwashed by the media and romantic books.

      I totally concur.  Even as a young teenager, I BELIEVED the same.    To me,  the partner has to be highly educated and well established financially.   As the saying goes, no relationship with finances!   I was always level headed even as a teenager!

    If a woman is concerned about her well being then she is concerned about money, whether she is single or in a relationship.  Having money is part of your well being. I would never have a relationship with a man who was cheap or did not have any ambition to provide a good life for himself or his woman. Does that make women gold diggers?  Not necessarily.

    And it goes the other way too.  There are men out there who have made a good life for themselves and they would prefer a woman who has made a good life for herself as well. Some men will say they don't want moochers or gold diggers.

      Thank you, Efficient Admin.   I agree.   I cannot fathom why many women refuse to see our points regarding this.   Money is a very important component in terms of relationships.   In order to live beyond struggle and survival, one needs CA$H!

    "No romance without the finance!" Uggh. All I know is that any women checking out the size of my wallet on the first date wouldn't ever get a second one.

    I don't know why some women refuse to believe it's not important when it is, but at least for me it's not THE most important thing regarding a relationship. I mean, if the right guy comes around to a specific woman, and he's not rich, then it's choosing money over a great partner. Now, if he's a lazy person and doesn't have a job, then that's a whole different idea when it comes to finances. At least for my ideas and the way that I think, a good partner is worth having even if he isn't wealthy or well off, because money doesn't last as long as good company. But perhaps I think differently than other women do in this topic, so this is all just my opinion. I do like your question though, it makes me think critically smile
