Marrying For Money

How Much Weight Does Money Have in Your Relationships?

I've never been someone to evaluate a guy's attractiveness according to what's in his bank account or what kind of inheritance he may have lined up. But I do know several girls who list wealth as a must have in a guy and won't even consider dating someone that can't provide a luxurious lifestyle. Of course you want your boyfriend to have a good head on his shoulders and be financially stable, but I've never understood the disparity in setting higher money expectations for a guy than I would for myself.

And while money hasn't been a priority in finding my match, a Prince & Associates survey of 1,134 men and women earning $30,000 to $60,000 a year found that about 70 percent of women and 50 percent of men said marrying for money is a consideration. How much money are we talking? Every person said they'd prefer to marry someone with a net worth of more than $1 million.

So tell me, how much weight does money carry in your relationships?
