Should you marry out of love or out of money?

If you love someone but the finacial part of your marriage will be hard/difficult/stressful, do you still get married. Or do you marry someone that will be able to be supportive finacially but you don't necessary love them?

Add New Argument

Marriage is not a prerequisite for love, nor does it help to maintain it (see the numerous divorce cases), From what I can see, the only purpose it serves outside of a religious context is to establish inheritance and insurance rights.

I believe we should not marry at all.

i don't really believe in marriage either, but that wasn't the question. I didn't ask if it was required or needed or whatever I was asking if you should. I guess in your case/opinion we shouldn't marry at all

Side: Marriage is outdated

I agree with you, but one other thing marriage does, is help to cut down on the number of people with hyphenated last names. Imagine two people with hyphenated last names have children together. Those children would potentially have hyphenated hyphenated last names, and it wouldn't be long before two people with four last names have children with eight last names.

I have a hyphenated last name.

Marriage is seeing a beautiful flower growing in a meadow, ripping it out of the ground and freezing it. The flower can remain like that almost forever, but everything that made it beautiful has been killed.

I'm saying I oppose marriage for any reason. Neither love nor money is reason enough to marry.

You're kinda demanding; don't you think?

That's not what the title says, did you read the question - yadda yadda yadda.

Let people answer in their own way.

you can't marry money. they peron who you would marry for money may lose it all, or may have been lieing about it to get your money. you would also be spending money on the wedding ceromony, and quite possible the divource papers

and i'm sure you can marry money. it's an object and you can marry objects. so im assuming you mean yyou can't marry someone for their money and you can...the rest of what you said actually all of what you said, doesnt make any sense...

in my case marriage is very important thing in our lives even the most important one, so people should be very responsible for their actions and if they decided to marry they should love their partners but not love their financial position. I think that money in comparison with human qualities is nothing. if you have money - it is good, if not - you can earn it! but if you do not like a person except his\her money there is nothing to do with that to be happy

Side: out of love

It is up to the discretion of the individual. Some people find it happy to marry for money.

Side: out of love

you should marry out of love, and only when that love has become stable enough to handle itself. marriage is not a tool to help love advance, but rather a statement of the love. that statement allows the couple to carry on their relationship under law, religion, and tradition. It give helpful benefits to the couple, but only if love is involved.

what about those who are forced into marriage? and love is forced in on them? wouldnt love be a tool to help marriage at that point?

Side: out of love

you are right, that is a legitimate claim. when i was speaking of marriage i was invisioning a couple that choose for themselves. if the marriage was arranged, love would most likely help them.
