I’ve had some very interesting conversations of late, with people who have told me straight they would marry for the money (male and female) and that marrying for love is rare and mugs game... and I should basically wake up and smell the coffee.
Please tell me we have not allowed ourselves to stoop so freakin’ low.
Please tell me that it’s your personality, your qualities, your character and your goodness, your connection to another, and pure old fashion falling in love , that is still the gold standard.
One comment made was ...”I need a rich man with integrity!”.
I asked...”Would a rich man with integrity marry a woman he knew was only marrying him for his money?”
I got no answer..
I know that people marry for all kinds of reasons... but money comes and money goes... love will last forever.
I don’t see why people often see it as and either or affair anyway
Either you marry for love or you marry for money...why?
Why not love, and build on money if you haven’t got it... shit... it aint rocket science
Another comment was...” I’d like a rock star!”... (so I offered up)... “why not a gangster?”
“Oh no!”... (and then came that integrity word again)
“Hey” I said... you may find that the gangster has a lot more integrity than the rock star”
I mentioned the fact that there is a website available for women who want to meet and marry millionaires...
“Oh no!...she said... No websites!!... (that told me!) “I want someone to introduce me”
“Errr okay... good luck with that!”
To hear men and women so cynical is unpleasant to my ears.
It’s murky and I don’t like it.
Get a grip people
