A friend of my said that love can not hold without money
Love has got absolutely nothing to do with money cos in any relationship there must come a time where money will fail and its love that will sustain the relationship. It is in times like these that relationships which are founded on money collapses.
On the other hand, money is easily obtained where love dwells. Genuine love generates ideas, fires passion to excel and create an atmosphere for distinction, That is why they say behind every successful man , ia a loving woman.
Love means a lot it goes beyond money but our soceity today has centered it on money. This is because no girl will go out with a man without expecting @least ice-cream and no man will give any lady free ice-cream without sleeping with lady.
This is what the soceity calls love, this is not love.
Love gives no condition.
We dated for 2 years so it was serious. I saw that the relationship could go somewhere because I saw that he had potential. He needed someone to support him, not look down on him because of his situation.
I helped him get established. I got him in school and enouraged him throughout.
So, when you were dating this guy who was sleeping from couch to couch, you were saying to yourself, this is a relationship I see going somewhere?
Or were you thinking, you know, if he gets his own place, we might become serious.
Or was it, if this becomes serious, he can come live with me.
Or you were just dating for fun?
I ask because I find it hard to believe anyone would seriously date a homeless guy
Love Anything To do with money. Love Comes straight from the heart and its unconditional.
We shouldn't be saying love has something to do with money. If is because of money we love, am afraid to tell you we all making a mistake. If the money finished today that means we will go in our ways. My opinion is that we should love right from our heart so we will be able to understand ourselves.
Well friends, i really like us to understand what LOVE means in its true sense. Love is not what people takes it to be today. What people see as Love today is not Love but LUST. Now down to what love means... It means Sacrifice. Doing something for somebody out of compassion and without expecting something in returns.
Now lets address the What transpires between two people: Loving someone is knowing the person, and knowing someone is loving him; it's difficult for you to say you love somebody when you have not known him/her. If you found yourself saying you love someone when you have not known him/her, then you are actually lusting after him/her. People, feel attraction for each other base on so many factors..... But here is the point...Loving someone has little or nothing to do with money but Attraction does. If you are not perceived to be rich....you probably may not get attracted to somebody.
Money is surely a lubricant (I stand to be corrected), but if love's founded on money, it's like a house built on quick-sand (it's flippant and shallow).
True love (I tell you because I've been there, done that!) is founded on mutual understanding, fondness, sacrifice and a brotherly inclination to always watch out for one another's back.
I see no reason why a guy should go into what he is not yet capable of achieving to the fullest.
If I am a sister to this guy who is living on the street with only one pair of shoes, I will tell him that the next thing on his agenda should not be going out with a lady who you cannot once in a while take care of. He should work on himself first.
The world is growing day by day so let us stop this thinking of he has nothing and that the girl cannot go out with him because he does not have money.
You can avoid the 'too much asking babe or guy' but try to be able to stand as a man in your own small way. Even if it is your pocket money, try and save some for a bottle of coke for the babe. Take it or you leave it, there is no way money will not come into your relationship and you better know it now before you say "hi girl".
On a lighter note, I do not pray to be the highest spender in my relationship because it is an ordained thing from the bible that the man will always be the head but that does not also mean that I wont spoil my husband with the so called much money.
are we talking about the ideal world or the real world
Ideal world: love has nothing to do with money
- that is because everyone has all the money they want, everything they could possibly want they could get for themselves, anything they want to enjoy they can, except one thing, the love of another person
Real world: love has a lot to do with money
- most girls will not date a guy who is broke and living on the street with only one pair of shoes, you barely will give the bum money, let alone love
I believe the money we are referring to here is not Cash per say because there is no amount enough for love but rather, the processes which we go through to maintain this so called love or to beautify it and make it last long cost money.
Have said it before on this forum and probably maybe on a different topic that ordinary phone call to say hi to a friend (not necessary going out) once in a while could be referred to as the financial aspect of that friendship. The importance of this scenario is not the money involvement but it helps build up your relationship in any way.
Love has everything to do with money! a relationship without money is a complete bore! There will be no fun outings, no treats, no presents, no dinners, weekends at exotic/average places etc. If you can't afford to do at least 3 of these things then what exactly will you be doing huh!
Money makes a relationship exciting and funfilled!
yes we all know that love and a healthy marriage thrives on passion and passion only. Money and love are tragically transgenic in most cutlures, hell I can't recount the amount of time my father has told me to get a good job so that I may have a good wife and assorted "advices" along those line. It is naive to think that love and money do not have any effect on each other but the truth is a girl is interested in how successful you are or can be before "falling in love" with you. I love the term "falling in love' because it proves that there is no such thing as love at first sight, sure there is lust but not much else. "Oh honey I didn't know you had such a large bank account and a successful job with benefits.... I think I am falling in love with you" haha it is foolish to hope to foster a long term relationship without a healthy bankroll. I concede that money has nothing to do with one night stands but if you are talking about love and long term relationships you will be hard pressed to find a happily married couple in financial strife.
Ok, let's clarify something:
How much money are you talking about? Does the guy have to be rich or comfortable? Is he so broke he's homeless? How much money do you think is needed?
If you say a lot, would you think that the one you're with is only after you because of your money? How will you know it's truly love for you and not love for your money? How would you know she/he would still be around if that money should perish?
Yes, it is true that we've looked into this issue on threads such as:
- Why are girls so eager for money?
- What is the perfect gift of love
- Wealthy Men Who Refuse to Give Their Women Money
- Can a Girl Choose a Husband on Love Alone?
However, we do not seem to have dealt with the issue directly. Let's do that here and now.
What, if anything, does love have to do with money?
