    No im sure there are millions of women with the same opinion as you. One of my friends wants to.do everything herself so your not alone . I want financial support in a marriage though.
    Well, you want your husband to work, whilst you stay at home, so that you can take his money and live your life. How about you contribute towards the financial situation?

    This is just ****ed up. Why are girls so materialistic? "I can easily marry a rich guy if I wanted" and thus have an easier lifestyle. This thread blatantly supports the idea that a lot of women only want money and all the qualities they look for in a guy i.e. Personality is just utter crap.

    My parents arrived in England not knowing English and not having any money. My dad started as a cleaner then catering for like a decade prior to marriage (he's now in a 50k job)

    Some people... You need to lose that attitude that you can easily get and deserve a better life. Maybe you do but you need to work for that. Come back to me when you become rich through hard graft and I'll consider retracting my post. Yes you are ill, but that doesn't warrant you to a better lifestyle

    So..iv been with my bf for over two years. we love each other a lot but its gonna take him many years to be financially stable and to be able to provide me with a house and stability for me to move into. it doesnt help me being older than him and being ill and not being to able to work full time to do all these things by myself

    I could easily marry some rich suitor guy if I wanted... through arranged marriages.. simply for that house that ease of lifestyle.. but I wont do that

    but the question is.. if most of you didnt have a partner.. if you could have suitors to see who were all financially stable.. if you clicked with one.. would you marry them.. simply for the money?
    why on earth would a rich guy marry a too sick to work (and presumably not be able to do anything else) woman whose only prerogative is money?

    And marry for money no i wouldnt. Oh and btw i do own my own home (4 bed bungalow on 1.7 acre plot in the country and fully paid for), i have a good career ahead of me and i wouldnt touch someone like you with a ten foot barge pole

    No, money doesn't bring happiness.
    That is entirely subjective. IT really depends on what makes you happy.

    That being said - i dont have that much money lol

    umm if you partner provides less income wth should it matter? If you love the person than things like that go out the window for awhile atleast besides what happens if you were to marry a "rich guy" and then your bf got finacially stable would you go back?
    And to answer your question no i wouldnt marry someone for money

    I married for money 2 years ago and I have definitely not regretted it. My husband works late hours and I cheat on him with my ex quite regularly while my husband is out. I also have lots of spare time for hobbies.

    I definitely think you should organised the arranged marriage, and see your current boyfriend on the side for romance. We are liberated women in the 21st century!

    No i would not marry someone for their money.
    Of course, i would like her to have a financially stable career of her own so that she does not solely rely on me to provide everything. But money is not the be all and end all, as long as we both can contribute together to live fairly comfortably and pull our own weight, then i'd be happy.

    As a previous poster said, girls who would happily sit back at life and whos only aspiration is to marry a rich guy is absolutely repulsive. Unfortunately this is a common occurrence and which is why you see these bored, hot wives who cheat on their old, rich, fat, balding husbands with the guys they wished they should have married. And then usually divorce them and squeeze them for all they're worth. Sad state of affairs but this is nothing new.

    Let me see. I don't view an Asian female doctor ..who im not btw...wanting to settle down via arranged marriage...which im not having ....choosing a partner...considering all aspects...ie personality views beliefs money family....and if she met several people and met someone who she was fully compatible with who happened to be a doctor as well and then she decided to work part time ....I don't see problem with that..the women doctor is.comfortable working pt and she contribute to the living and maintenance of house she looks after both families she's noble kind..does charity work...doesn't just sit back and go on spa dates manicures girlfriend lunches. Please try and understand that there are some people in the world
    Who meet their partner differently.. And like to make sure before they enter a marriage contract..things are agreeable on both sides. I am not talking about marrying some old Guy who is a billionaire.

    I am being honest. I don't have the capacity to work full time amd keep up with mortage payments and such. No I don't want to waste my Money to rent a flat where todays landlords are out there to swindle just about anyone. So are estate agents actually. If I didn't have a bf right now I still wouldn't have arranged marriage I would just see if I end up meeting anyone. Now I do have bf we want to marry im future and buy a house so worth. So yes I would need him to have a decent salary so we can get settled and then have children. Why is it soo wrong to be honest with ones self to be prepared to be truthful....

    To all the people who think my only ever aspiration was to marry a rich guy..I completed my degree become qualified worked full time went self implied work ft till my health declined and have been working pt for a year..at age 18 I didn't want to marry I wanted to get education..but I wouldn't judge an 18 year old who wants to not study be a housewife and provide for her husband cos guess what it's her life she's entitled..ad long as she's happy. The ironic thing is I want to study further if my health permits me and want to marry bf is all world our well im future so stop assuming it's classless women who want to marry billionaire to get ahead in life lol

    Ignore all those who babble on about pride. It's your life and you can do what you want. There's nothing shameful in being a housewife, if that's what you want to do. Equally, there's nothing shameful in working after you get married. Do whatever you feel comfortable with.
