Well said. I think most people would gladly give up what they own for true love, but if it doesn't happen or they never find it, I'd choose happiness because you can be happy without love or money if you're happy with yourself. Life is what you make it--find what makes you happy!

I agree too, Since i recently became a stay at home mom and we've lost my income I think this household just picked Love icon_smile.gif And i wouldn't have it any other way, i find my self lucky that i have the option to pick.

Well.of course I agree with everyone....but since I have love already the money wouldn't hurt..I mean a little oil greases the wheel!! I'm just waiting for my lottery win..HA!HA!

Money doesn't but happiness or health!

oh i agree with that too...the money would be a nice addition...lol.

I know someone who recently married for money and it is not a good situation at all. ...about to end in divorce. I have way less money than them but my life feels totally complete.

Love, with all it's finer definitions, especially friendship.

Money makes some people ugly.

My best friend (of 20 years) was always looking for new places where her DH could work so they could have more money. They have 5 kids, so that's understandable. She would often ask if my DH could give him a job where he manages. My DH was finally able to about a month ago.

Last week I went to visit and she was sitting there with her new gels nails in her silk robe while her cleaner washed windows, cleaned the floors, folded laundry and scrubbed the bathroom.

I'm not jealous, I just don't see the point. We're both SAHM's with plenty of time on our hands.

This morning I saw her up the street and she snobbed me!

The silly thing is we still make more money than they do. We just don't flash it around.

Money just doesn't suit some people.

Jen is feeling a little sad today icon_sad.gif .

Cheer up Jen....Money comes as quick as it goes and when their money is all gone...She will be crying the blues to you and well...Too bad!!

What comes around goes around.....

Hubby says I have "rich b*tch" down pat .... all I need is the money part! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

So if he's still alive and we don't have the money part, I guess that means we chose the love part! thumbs_up.gif

I would definitely say love. My husband and I have had a wonderful love life together, but our financial history would give nightmares. It has been a rollercoaster ride in that area. If I had to live in a tent, I would go gladly as long as my family was healthy and happy. I wouldn't change a thing. And Jen, your absolutely right, money does corrupt some people. Just thank your lucky stars that you are not flashy, someday she may wish she had some of that cash she's flashing around right now.

I chose a poor man I loved over a rich man I liked, and have never regretted the choice.

My mother, on the other hand!

Thanks Kiddiekakes and cabecakes icon_smile.gif . Perhaps she is one of those who don't talk to "the help" (ei. Karen from W&G). I'm making her daughters birthday cake this weekend icon_wink.gif .

Now Karen, well that is one rich b*tch I LOVE!

Love...it's what gets you through the tough times as money comes and goes. Though money sure would help relieve some of the stresses we face daily, love is what makes those stresses worth it.

Love.......most definatly.

My hubby has low self-esteem and I tell him over and over that I would love him if we lived in a cardboard box, that he is the best thing that ever happend to me etc etc....

I have several friends who are in the middle of separating from their spouses because they aren't "in love" any more. I am more in love with my hubby now, then I was when we first met. (It was love at first sight kinda thing)

Money would be nice, but knowing that he is there for me is priceless.

According to these stats love doesn't last forever. I'd still choose love over money.

According to enrichment journal on the divorce rate in America:
The divorce rate in America for first marriage is 41%
The divorce rate in America for second marriage is 60%
The divorce rate in America for third marriage is 73%

For me Love can do more wonders. Money may be essential but Love always surpasses it. icon_smile.gif
