Would you give up a billionaire lifestyle for true love? What is most important in life for you?
No - I LOVE MYSELF enough to want a good life. True Love will be found again.
It depends on what you define as true love. I think a balance of both is important as a loveless relationship or lack of financial security can cause an amount of strain in a relationship. I would give up a billionaire lifestyle for true love because I would still be able to live as a millionaire which will just be a change in my financial status. It will however still enable me to live comfortably and have my true love - the best of both worlds. Its about the importance of both love and financial security.
I have written a hub on money and happiness which might interest you as it mentions the fact that a significant amount of financial security does go a long way to create a stable, happy and healthy loving relationship . See link below.

Absolutely. There is nothing more important in this life than people. When the money is all good and spent, there is nothing left, and your "friends" will leave you because this is so. When you die rich, people don't remember you for you, they remember you for money. I want to be remember a a person, and while I am down here on this earth, I want true love more than anything else. Love will always make me happy, when I know, that money never will.
First, I've never lived a billionaire lifestyle, but what is it really? The ability to have anything I want, go anywhere I want, wear expensive clothes, eat expensive dinners? I suppose it would matter what kind of billionaire "lifestyle" I was actually living. BUT, I can tell you this. My husband and I have been poorer than poor - at times unable to pay our rent, and visiting a food bank. And, through all of that and more, we have continued to love each other - and I think it's been because we've had nothing else to hold on to. Frankly, I'd rather be poor as a church mouse and have my love beside me than to have all the money in the world and be without him. So, the short answer? I sure would give up a billionaire lifestyle for true love. Like Tevya said in Fiddler on the Roof -
"They're so happy - they don't even know how miserable they are!"
absolutely not! smile. I refer to C.S. Lewis book "The Four Loves" for help with this. Referring to 1) Affection, 2) Friendship, 3) Eros, & 4) Charity. Having the resources of a billionaire and 'My' lifestyle are two different subjects.
I can't give anything that is my lifestyle for love. before it could be considered true love, the person that is indeed in love with me must have known i was a billionaire before it went that deep to begin with. So no i wouldn't besides i dont live the lifestyle i'm assuming so why would i want to give it up for someone who doesn't accept me for who i am. pssh. Money is part of everythng my friend.
one can earn money by tact and harwork, but true love is hard to find almost impossible,some dont even find it,so love at the top for me
Oh definitely. I'd much rather be stoney broke and totally loved up, than rich and alone.
Money and wealth, who really needs it. Happiness is where it's at :-)
Why can't a billionaire be accepted for who he/she is? If it is true love, it should be the other way around. Will a guy/girl still love a billionaire if he/she will loose everything the next day?
One can give up the lifestyle but not necessarily the billions. The money can be used for the good of humanity, not just for selfish indulgence. A true test of love is knowing that your partner has billions in the bank yet both of you live in a rustic cabin or hut. And he/she willed almost all of the money to charity. How's that?
But since I'm not a billionaire, true love will do. Lol.
I have never had even close to that much money, but I have had a love that makes me feel like a million. I will keep the love and let the money go. I know it is rare to find a love so precious, and I wish that everyone could, for then the question would never be asked.
@keepitnatural...It's hard to imagine a billionaire's lifestyle, but giving it up for something as fragile as love is hard to imagine, too! I knew a couple who were married for 68 years, and they had true love, I believe, because they were just as affectionate and kind with one another the day the man died as they were on their wedding day. I don't think a billion dollars would have made any difference in their love.
If I was as certain as I could be that I had true love, I think I could give up the billionaire lifestyle, because having someone to truly share life with is just more fun and, so, more important.
In a heartbeat! You can always work to earn back the money. It is material and worthless on it's own. It just funds your lifestyle and is a good tool for other things.
Love, on the other hand is priceless. With love, you can be fueled and have the energy to achieve anything!
I would keep the money because I would be able to help so many people in life, that is my idea of true love. I could put smiles on the faces of so many people with that kind of money. I would give up a personal love so I could fulfill my mission of trying to make the world a better place. I think that is more important that romance. Beside I think there are much higher forces at play that will determine if you keep the love of your life or the money. The other person could die the next day or you could go broke the next day.
Not in a million years. First of all, I would never have that kind of lifestyle! Even if we had all the money in the world, we would be as normal as we possibly could be! I want my future children to have all the thing that they want, but I want them to appreciate what they have. I think anyone who would give up a happy, wonderful family life with just the simple things like love, and togetherness for having "a billionaire lifestyle" needs their brains examined!
Love. I have money, but the greatest moments in my life comes from my husband and my beautiful children. These are the memories they give me, and the most amazing times we have had with each other has nothing to do with money. If we had to give up all of our finances, our home, our cars and all of our worthy travel to keep our love together, it would not be hard to do. What we have we worked hard for, but if we had to give it all up for love, that would be easy to do. Love is the greatest thing in my life.
i don't think i would. but i am very very broke.. so my opinion may not count for much..
Not in a million years. One can always find love. Love does not put food on the table, send kids to college, and keep one from homelessness but having lots of money does. Love is so fleeting and temporary but money talks and is more permanent.
For me, I value sincerity and transparency in relationships. So far, I lived a middle class life style and contented and happy about it.
I have had very little money at times and at other times have been fortunate so far as wealth is concerned. For me, money in and of itself did not make me happy or unhappy. I've met a lot of unhappy people over the years who had a lot of money and some who always had a smile but were poor as church mice.
Setting aside the question of what constitutes "true love", I'd have to say I would definitely rather have true love than money. It is a lot easier (for me) to acquire money and things than it is to have good people in my life who feel a high degree of affection for me and I for them.
The most important thing in my life is without a doubt my family and not my mutual funds and gold.
Definitely. For the average person, both is hard to come by but when it comes down to it, true love is most likely even harder to find. The most important thing in life for me is to be able to die without regrets.
Please Please! Give me the Billion dollars so that I can make a proper comparison?
Truly having a billionaire lifestyle can in no way be a problem with having true love, if anything i believe it is an advantage in every sense of the word.
i would hope so. If not I think you should reevaluate yourself.
I think I'll stick with the billionaire lifestyle. "Money can't buy you happiness" is incorrect in my opinion.
In my life, I give more importance to my love and I can sacrifice anything for him. I love him a lot.

Suddenly this question strike in my mind today ... " Which is more important LOVE OR MONEY" to live a happy life ?? If any one have to select her partner which criteria one should follow for choosing her life partner..

I recently realized that true love might just not exist at all. The feeling of love is momentary, i.e. what you feel at that particulart point of time... Nothing is same after a lapse of time, or rather we are no longer the same....
