Would You Marry An Ugly Rich Man or A Handsome Poor Man?

A Pot belly ugly looking rich guy and an handsome poor guy, whom would you marry?

As for me, I would prefer the young chap whom I could be proud of and present him wherever I go as my husband. I don't know about you.

lol,  lol,  Looking at the picture of the guy with the bush rat, and Momodu is not fair, 

First of all, the bush rat guy is not cute,

2nd, Momodu is actually fine, 

Who would I marry? If they have the same personality,  Momodu please!! Life would be much easier. 

Trust me, I am married to a really cute but poor man,  He has great aspirations - Doing a Masters in a great private school in the US.  Really smart,  e just nor get money!!!

Financially, I do ok.  Enough to pay all the bills, and pay school fees,  but everything else is a struggle.  At least I know with his education, the probability of him becoming rich is very likely (add the fact that he's smoking hot), I just have to be patient.

Would I do it again? Yes, cos we love each other dearly,  but if I hadn't fallen in love with him yet,  lai lai!! You go suffer. I knew things were hard when I started counting the meat in my pot.  If e chop pass one meat, body go dey bite you.  U no go fit drink juice, cannot visit your friends or drive anywhere because no money for fuel.  After you spend 24 hours together eating rice and boiled egg everyday, or trekking everywhere, or drinking water always, or using baking soda + salt for toothpaste, and using coconut oil both for body cream and cooking,  body go tell you!

Handsome poor man, and then he won't be poor anymore, doesn't matter who brings home money as long as it comes in.

"He who marrys for money and not love will have good days and bad nights,

He who marrys for love and not money will have bad days and good nights".

Some of the comments on this blog are exteremely laughable up to the extent that I can only conclude that people are writing what they think people want to hear.

Trust me if there is no money there is no love - Period

If you don't have money either I believe and I can bet it with all the money in my bank account that the Poor Handsome Man isnt going to marry you. Now lets go to fantasy island and assume you now get married see the below senarios and i dont want any replies saying love is blind. If you think that way you need to go to the opticians I can recommend a good one.

Scenario A: Both man and wife are wretched.

It is either they have the same goals or are not looking at attaining a higher status in life which is perfect if that is where you want to be. But get married and dont bring children to that miserable world and they deserve the best start in life and not parents that can not look after them. Also your children are not your relatives / governments responsibilities they are YOURS  .

When you have enough money have kids.

Scenario B: Man is wretched and woman is okay (not rich) OKAY.

Your standard of living will drop tremdeously has you now have to cater for a fully grown man. Forget savings you can't save. Your standard decreases his standard increases a bit. Careful dont have kids until this man find himself something to do after all his is surpposed to be the head and he isnt doing so, so far. If he has some kind of job good marry him at least he is not lazy.

If he doesnt dont get married until this man gets a job beware of 419ers I dont care if you met in church they are everywhere.

If the man is a goal getter type and he is just not rich at the moment BEWARE be very cautious as men are slys they will endeaur any situation until they get the money and want to trade you in for a 23 year old version. By that time all the suffer you suffered with him is story.

A man who is not able to look after is family is worse than an infidel and in my opinon should not get married.

There is nothing like a an ugly rich guy - give me examples if you have them and i will show you no one considers them as ugly ie MKO Abiola, dont know many men but look at Whoppie Goldberg and Oprah ugly in all sense but when you see them am sure the first thing that come to your mind isnt ugly.

If you are a very rich woman and you want to marry an okay guy goodluck you may work things out if the man is wretched i will very much question his motives. As you cant be a submissive wife to this type of man it is not just possible and men dont not like been controlled by women - FACT.

I AM NOT SAYING MARRY A MAN BECAUSE OF MONEY FAR FROM IT. As I am not saying marry a man because he is Handsome and poor - Tofiakua

Yes, I have seen suffering before. I'm not some money hungry girl, so the money isn't my concern. Building a life and future with the little foundation that I have with him would be my concern, not his bank account.

Good!

You are either one in a million or you are just one having mouth because you have not seen suffering in your life before. I mean suffering, as in the Naija suffer suffer, not Brooklyn moaning.

And correction, Money is a lot, not nothing.

Yes, I would. Just because he's poor today doesn't mean he can't be rich tomorrow. Being the supportive woman that I am, we [him and I] can build ourselves together. Money is nothing.

if the question said ugly rich man and handsome average man, i'd have chosen handsome average straightaway. but with these options, i have to choose the ugly rich one.

the guy's beauty (or lack of it) is on his face and not mine, so i won't be ashamed to be seen with him. he has enough money so he can afford to dress well. the only way it would affect me is my children, and like other posters i'll pray that they don't look like him. besides, money makes people look good (at least better than they would look if they were poor). i'll take great care of my kids' skin, dress them up beautifully, give them the best education. the packaging would be so tight, people would barely notice their imperfections.

in nigeria (and just about everywhere else), wealth opens up more doors than beauty does. of course, being very handsome can bring acting/modelling opportunities which can make the poor guy rich eventually, but what are the odds.

also, if the handsome one eventually gets rich he'll be perfect and i'm not. but with the ugly rich guy i'll always be one up on him.

I have never seen so much rubbish in my life as I am seeing on this thread.

More than 80% (if not 90%) of females are claiming they would go for the Handsome Poor Man. Unbelievable lies!

So how come some of those ripped agberos on the streets of Lagos are not attractive to the average girl? How come most end up playing about with some married guy in his 30s or even Aristos?

Unbelievable lies!

If you give majority of girls to choose between a handsome Tyson Beckford that makes £12,000 a year (not even as bad as on benefits/welfare) and Biggie Smalls with £200m in his bank account, the Biggie will win hands down.

Like if they don't like clothes shopping, shoes, handbags and dining in plush restaurants paid for by "my man" like death. Poor man will not even buy them slippers.

It's not who says. The topic says the guy is poor poor poor. You are taking a risk. That your handsome guy will be working under the rich ugly guy answering to him. "yes boss"

i have seen a plain nobody turn to "that boy is fine" because the guy bought a new flashy car or the girls suddenly found out he's the aire to his father's fortune. to most women, looks dont really matter as far as there is (lot of) money. the money will definately compensate for the looks.

Still defeats the purpose of getting married. Love should be the sole criteria before getting married. Looks and riches, while a factor are poor excuses in getting married.
