    I wonder if America collapses tomorrow and life was going to be worst than Venezuela right now. Would you marry someone in a safe haven country to save you our skin?

      I would think that money is not everything to save our skin regardess of the economic condition of one's country...besides marrying someone in a safe haven country is not a guarantee for a lasting relationship, it may help in a way for a while depending on the persons involved but it's not a solution, it would just be like holding on to the blade of a knife...

        If American were hauling people into Fema camps and I'm sure I would be on their kill list as a non conformist

        I would find it in my heart to marry a lady that I was in deep like with. She would be my good knight. Besides, you must love yourself first.

    I've had money and was miserable, I've been broke and was happy... definitely marry for love.

    Of course marry a partner for love because it is eternal while money is just temporary.

      I know my ex wife married me for money , not love. I was in love with my unborn child to be.

    I'm an old fashion man. I believe that one should marry for love only. Money can last, so can love in some cases. But, still, love is that something that provides us with reasons to live. I don't deny that we need money to lead a good, comfortable life. But love is something you can't live without.

    In life, there are times when you can't enjoy money, only love can give you a life energy that time. And to tell the truth, the world needs more love than money.

      The world is run on more fear than love right now. For sure, if each and all nations had all their gross national products made into happiness, it would be run on love and kindness.

    Love equates to money, in the final analysis. Is it love to make just enough (for yourself) to survive? Is it LOVE to expect the wife to work AND take care of the family, chores, yard work, pay her own car repairs, the kids' doctor bills and groceries?
    Don't be fooled, women! I say! Marry wise if you have to marry. My grandmother would say, "You can love a rich man just as easily as a poor man." He He He.  If you are able to survive/live well without a man, don't complicate it with love, I say.
    There are enough people tromping around on the earth. You don't have to create a family.
    Actually, many of the youth (young adults) realize they have a lot of living to do before they have children. Not sure if they are marrying.

    I didn't read any of the other replies because this was posted five years ago but if you make enough money on your own then marrying for money isn't really relevant anymore.
