Love Vs Money

A scale with money on one side and a heart on the other.

Would you choose love or money?

If you fell in love with a poor man would you stay with him because ‘love always wins?’

Assuming I can't have both, love and money, and I chose money, would that make me a gold digger? Money minded? Shallow?

They say love is the best feeling in the world and that those who are lucky enough to experience it are the happiest people in the world. That money should never be compared to love because love is endless and money can't buy love.

Love is more important than money? Have you met poor people? If love was all you needed to be happy in life then the poor would be the happiest, most content people on the planet.

Love is endless? Ever heard of divorce?

Love is not all sweet and rosy and filled with happily ever afters. Wake up and smell the coffee. You have to differentiate between fantasy and reality.

Money makes the world go round.

It's 2016, you are madly in love with your partner but you have no food to eat. What are you going to do? Beg for food or walk into a grocery shop and buy food with love?

Ever heard of The World’s Most Loving Couple? No. How about the World's Richest? Bet you have. Would you rather cry in a Porsche or on a bicycle?

Love is important. Don't ever think it's’ not. But don't think for a second you can survive in this century, in this world, only on love with ZERO money.

So yes, I will read your sweet poems, have long late night conversations with you and respond to your pet names with a few creative ones of my own. But if our love cannot permit us to lead a comfortable life and put at least three meals on the table for our children, I’m out.
