I choose love. Yeah money is nice, and I’ve been with a guy who had money, but I was miserable with him.
So I prefer to actually have love than money.

Right now? Money. I lost it all when I was in love.

I don’t care too much for money, money can’t buy me love!

There’s an old saying “Women who marry for money earn it”. Sexist, true, but it says a lot.

How about just a little of both? That would do me just fine!

Reminds me of the old Groucho Marx line about innuendo.
“Love goes out the door, when money comes innuendo.”

Money can make you rich, but love can make you much richer.

Love through and through.

Seaminglysew's avatar

Absolutely LOVE. I have had both….. true love and makes me happier than anything money can buy.

“Right now? Money. I lost it all when I was in love.”
Indeed.

@Blackberry It’s a long and tragic story.

“Money…money, changes everything…” (not necessarily in a good way)

Love

looks as though we’re back to poll questions.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@mrentropy Yeah, but you’ve still got the rodent in the sewer?

mrentropy's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Yeah, but that’s not a love thing. That’s strictly lust.

Coloma's avatar

Both.

Who wouldn’t? lol

Okay..seriously, I married for love the first time, and love still trumps money, but..it is also about equality.

I have money, not rich but comfortable, so I wouldn’t want to be in relationship with someone that was broke from the get.

IF, I was in love and committed I would not leave someone who fell upon hard times, ( it could happen to me again too ) but, I wouldn’t go into a new realtionship with somebody that couldn’t pay their way or who was not able to afford basic recreational activities like dinners out, movies, weekend trips etc.

Money.

Is this an either or question. Have money never find love? Or find love, never have money?

How about falling in love with someone with money. ;-)

I could really write some “stuff” about this question, but don’t want to drag up “old dogs!”

Tough question. If you find a good partner, the money will come. If you find a bad one, the money will be GONE!

So, give me a good “partner in crime” and the money will take care of itself!

LOVE!! Always. I’d hate myself forever for giving up someone i love for money. And i’d hate to be lonely with no love in my life, even if i had all the money in the world.

Seaofclouds's avatar

Love. All the money in the world wouldn’t equal the happiness I get from the love I have in my life.

Coloma's avatar

@Seaofclouds

Yes, but…considering money is at the top of the list of things couples fight about, I’d rather fight about how it’s going to be spent than how there isn’t enough of it. lolol

I am not a steak & lobster every week and diamond ring kinda girl, BUT…I do want to have fun with someone who can afford to have fun.

I am generous by nature with my time, attention and money and don’t want a cheapskate for a partner.

NaturallyMe's avatar

@Coloma – yes, a cheapskate is a different story. But i wouldn’t leave my partner, who i love very much, if we’re going through financial trouble, just to find myself a rich husband instead, or something. :)

Coloma's avatar

@NaturallyMe

Of course. :-)

YARNLADY's avatar

I chose love and got lucky.

anartist's avatar

I think I am too old and to cold for love. Show me the money.

Aethelwine's avatar

My husband and I have no money, but we are happily in love. My husband’s boss has millions. His family is constantly fighting, over money.

Love!!!!

meagan's avatar

Money. Was love around when we crawled out of the ooze or learned to walk on two feet? No. Its a modern excuse for staying together and repopulating the planet with one person.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

Of course love – we don’t have money and we have love – I’m much happier this way than if it was reversed.

Coloma's avatar

Even though we ain’t got money, I’m so in love with ya honey, and everything will bring a chain of loooooooove…..have I successfully branded that tune into everyones head now? lol

Neizvestnaya's avatar

As long as I am not hungry and basic needs are met then… love.

bunnygrl's avatar

Love definitely. Would a lottery win be great? sure, but every night I go to sleep with my fur babies near and hubby’s arms round me and I feel like I’ve won already :-)
