Which choice would you make between love or money

Updated on December 6, 2009

Shh! Take a moment. Allow your mind to float. See yourself as relaxed as you possibly can, while reading this hub. It's a time of quiet reflection, inner peace; a time to listen to the sounds your body makes as you sit hear reading. Your heart beats. A blue fluid flows in your body delivering life sustaining nutrients through-out the entire system that you have come to call, “[quietly, softly, speak your name here]!” Just maintain a simple and study breathing pattern. Ah!

A question has been raised. One of significants I think. The question is, “Which is more important in life, love or money?” To answer this question, I think you have to decide what love and what money means to you. No, really! It's easy for me to say, “I choose love because love conquers all!” Or, “I choose money because I have always wanted to have the power and prestige that comes with great wealth!” But what would you be really saying? So, I thought I would try to break it down a little more, than just a simple line or phrase or paragraph. Here goes …

For me, life is all about fun. To have fun, you need someone to share things with. To be in love, also carries a huge amount of fun as well. So, I choose love. I choose to marry fun! I choose to devote my life to fun. Fun! Now there is something to get excited about.

No! I'm not being silly. I am expressing my feelings in a very serious way. So please ... just hear me out.

Their is nothing comforting about money. I repeat; "their is nothing comforting about money!" There is no emotional connection with money. You cannot have a conversation with money. Money is just a facilitator. The choice of money is nothing short of a choice to live with paper. And yes, you can use money as a vehicle to drive fun, but it is not fun onto itself.

Love on the other hand has some unique qualifications that makes it the ideal choice. Especially if you are like me, and prize fun in your life as much as we all need water to drink and air to breath.

How can you not choose love!? How can you not choose fun!?

Here is a thought. If you do not already do so, please, … consider injecting fun into your life, and into your love. Just think about some of the things your other half (NOT YOU) would find fun (or funny) and interesting. Then, do a few of these fun things per day.

It will bring all those you love closer to you, help strengthen the bonds of love that you share with your family and friends. And, it has the potential of allowing you to see the world, nature, and life in all its splendor.

So, the question could have easily been, “Which would you choose, fun or money?” I choose FUN! And, I choose LOVE!

      I chose love and fun over money, and would make the same decision again every time. When my husband had a major health issue, making money was the last thing on my mind. We now live off the grid, grow our own healthy foods and laugh all the time!

      I think we need love more than money but it will be great if we can have a balance of both. Money can enhance our love life and gives us what our heart desire. Love makes us feel loved and valued. there are 2 different things but work great together in this world.

      I totallly agree about the whole "love is the best thing and the best feeling" and it is well-written, but when a tried to think a little more about the question something more poped. What about all the women out there, who sell their bodys? What about the thaiwomen who has been bought? They choose money because without just a little money, you cannot choose the love. Your question is not fully answeared jet and your answear to the question is a little too easy and simplified... Please comment!

      Love means nothing. It is money that makes the world go round. Money rules this world for without it- you are an impoverished, homeless nobody who have to take the crumbs and abuse that society dishes out. But with money and lots of it, one can rule the world and be a mover and shaker. You can be powerful with money.

      I go for love, simply because if you know how to love. You know how to sacrifice.

      Good question that many people ask. Seeing some of the more bizarre shows on TV with people eating worms and bugs for money - yuck! What are they thinking?

      Having once had a choice between marrying someone I didn't truly love (very rich) or someone who made me feel important and valuable, guess who I chose? I like what someone once said, "If you had only hours to live would you rather have more money or the love of your family?" I choose love emphatically!

      A thought provoking hub - well done! Most believe the grass is always greener on the other side. I too choose love and fun! For those lucky enough to have found true love, there would be no other choice. Love can bring to your life so much more that money. Yeah - it might be hard, and you might have to struggle, but with that person by your side, working together with you through those obstacles, giving you support and laughter along the way, the rewards to me outweigh any monetary gain.
