"Fall in love with the person,Not their money.”
I would like to share an interesting conversation I had with a friend. My friend is a CEO but due to the current pandemic, his business like everyone else is not doing well. During our conversation, I asked him about what he learned from his marriage. He quipped, “I learned that my wife doesn't love me but loves my money”. There was silence and I asked him why he thinks that way. He said that they are always arguing about money. It’s a sad realization and I know that it takes a lot of courage to say something like that truthfully.
Sometimes I wonder why rich people often marry the rich. It is the same case in my country, where elite businessmen just date women in their circle. Then sometimes, I would understand when I hear stories about women who marry for money. I know that the situation is different for every person and as a financially independent woman, I try to comprehend these kinds of situations. I know some rich men who never flaunt their wealth to get women because I think that they want others to see who they are as a person and not what they have. Just imagine if someone will measure your worth as a person based on your net worth? It's like a Business transaction, not marriage, not romance.That is why some of them are quite selective with friends and romantic relationships. I know that money is important in marriage and that sometimes it is a source of arguments but if there is one thing that I learned from my conversation with that friend, “I learned that even if money is important, never marry someone for money”.
In these modern times of materialism,how important is a person’s financial capacity in choosing him or her as a marriage partner? (These goes for both men and women)
Would you marry someone for money, even if you do not love him/her?
