Money is More Important than Love

2 years ago by Linda Wilson in Lifestyle > Other

My friend made the case for this the other night, and I must say I had less than a convincing response. The argument went something like this:
Money will get you around, keep you alive and functional, love will not. Even in love, when money runs out, love is often next to go. What money can buy will keep most people happy and motivated.
Is love more important than money? I have my own thoughts but I'm only going to share them after I receive yours!

Important for what? If it's for happiness it should be love. Anyone can survive.

Haha is it? People with money and without love kill themselves and people with love and without money do as well. So I think we need both in equal measure.

Is that even a question? From my experience money comes and goes, but love remains.

LOVE is more important anyone with some experience will tell you. Only a loveless person would come up with that statement I dont mean you Linda!!

Well you can't judge. Poverty is driving people crazy. Yes if you have enough to pay your bills def love is more important than money but if ur back is against the wall then money becomes very important because who else are you going to sustain your life?

Yes money is more important than love. And without money you might as well forget about life. And you probably won't get love either, except from your dog as long as you have money to feed him :D

Many have been wooed without a penny, you might not know them but dont never generalise on women.

You can woo without a penny, but you can't keep things going without a penny, let me promise you. I don't mean that in a bad way, it's just the way the world works.

For what? For survival or for happiness? If it's happiness I think love wins out.

Some nice observations, thanks. What I'm reading is: Money takes care of the basics and might qualify you for love, but love itself is what brings happiness.

Love is more important….if you have that you can always have the strength to make the dough you need……but if all you have is money you never know who likes you for who you are or for what you have…it's simple, first things first.
