Love or Money

Another eternally debated question.

Should I comment on it? Probably. If nothing else, simply because signs demand that I should. Glenn and the Flying Dutchman talked about it this morning, and when I went to blinkymummy's website I saw another post on it.

Personal feel, this is a question where either extreme of the answer is liable to be wrong. No money, both starve to death. Without love, the relationship is doomed to failure. The answer, rather lies in one's opinion in one of the infinite shade of grey between either extreme, and totally depend on one priority.

On one hand, the man is the traditional breadwinner in the Asian Family. On the other, I firmly believe every man wants his partner to see him for more than his wallet. Just like women want a man that can see past her tits.

And the bigger the wallet, or the tits, the harder it is to see past those trappings to the person behind.

That's why the man doesn't like it when the woman always talks about money. It demeans the man. Ladies, would you really want your guy to come up to you and say, hun, I love you, but you gotta get bigger tits. Right?

We all want the good life. Question is, how high is that on your list of priorities?

Question for the ladies, Love or money?
Question for the gents, Love or tits?

Maybe men and women aren't that different after all...

A doctor, a lawyer and a programmer find themselves in the men's lounge, discussing whether it is better to have a wife or a girlfriend.

"Oh a wife, definitely," says the doctor. "I always have a warm meal after a long stint at the hospital, and she's always available to pick up the slack around the house and family when emergencies pop up."

"I disagree," says the lawyer. "It's better to have a girlfriend. When you get bored, you can always swap them out for another one, they don't get in your hair when you want some down time, and there's no commitment other than relaxation and fun."

"I say both," says the programmer.

"BOTH!?" the other two say, aghast, and demand an explanation.

"Of course! That way the wife thinks you're with the girlfriend, the girlfriend thinks you're with the wife, and you can go to the lab and get some *real work* done!"

hey yeah the tits and wallet bit makes much sense, however, males are slowly losing the whole breadwinner status, so they'l be lucky if women want them for their money next time.

the near future might see independent women plus sperm donors plus possibly a world w/o men?

hahah. only kidding.

I think it comes back to what's important to the person. Money can buy a lot of happiness but it cannot give true happiness like love does. On the other hand, money may disappoint you but at least it will not break your heart like love does. Its a universal law of equal exchange.
