A VERY SIMPLE QUESTION!

source
We were watching a movie, when hubby asked me; 'Money or love,which do you prefer? Without hesitating, I replied... 
'I.B!' He exclaimed while laughing. Being the tease I am, I couldn't resist telling him, money! Yep! You heard me right! You guys thought I would say love huh? fa-fa-fa-foul! (Zerbudaya's voice} AHAHAHA.....jokes apart though, in this dispensation where materialism is the bane of the society and a person's value is determined by how much they worth in assets, love is no longer given the chance to grow and weather the storm!

Ha! Some might disagree with me....but hear me out first; Money answers all things, as my bible tells me, and when the pocket is full, the mouth is very confident, goes a popular saying.It also buys respect, loyalty and companionship, but it attracts both friends and frenemies, as sugar attracts ants without  buying 'em!.... Now, wait for the whooper!....... Money buys beauty, and men love beautiful women! Q.E.D!.. ...EHEHEHE.....Oops! I forgot; The saying, that it is better to be poor and happy, than to be rich and unhappy, does not hold water in this era o! Money can buy happiness, afterall happiness is relative. Money is the grease that makes the wheel of any relationship run smoothly without too much bumps. If there is no money in a relationship, be it family, friends and spouses, love would jump out of the window, and anger would walk in through the door with a swag.



Well, if you guys don't believe me, the stories in the media are there for you all to read and see................so much vanity on display! So much spousal problems that it leaves one exhausted and some discouraged! Love is a beautiful feeling which is hyped by the movie and romance industry, that attraction, lust and infatuation is mistaken for the real deal! That is why I hear there is a difference between I am in love with you and I love you! My guys, I don't see or know the difference o! Abi unah know? If yes, explain to me abeg o.


Love to me is like a seed planted in a soil and when well taken care of, it would grow into a beautiful flower with sweet fragrance, but if poorly taken care of, it would shrivel and probably wither off. So, people, whatdaya think? You prefer money or love...hey! hey! hey! I don't want those in-between or balance-it-kind of answers o! Because naturally we want both or little of each......but that ain't the question here.......money or love? Choose.....come'on! Who is gamed?..EHEHEHE.

mmmm.....Very interesting

Like Abiola, I want both!
Money in a Loving relationship makes people happier and more fulfilled
HOWEVER
People with Money and no Love are often bitter and suspicious

I was fortunate to meet someone I considered as very successful and I was surprised to discover that while he was very well off, he didnt seem to have a good relationship with his wife. I cant understand that.

Happy Valentine's Day

If it is the true kind of love, like love the way its supposed to be, not what people call love, then I will say since happiness is very important to me, I choose love. Money has never made me happy anyway.

.........thank you very much ladies and happy val in arrears :)

I choose LOVE hands down! I agree with ilola...money has never made me happy.....except when I'm able to give it away. Love, on the other hand is a forever thing. It never gives up! It never runs dry. I'm talking true love...the kind that always thinks more of the other person then themselves. The kind of love that would lay down their life for their once in a lifetime...lover and friend. If I were ever cherished & honored with such a true love...it wouldn't matter what else I didn't have. Love trumps & triumphs ALL!

That's my soul's 2 bits.

hugs

I think both are very important. A touchy subject. Does love feed a hungry belle and children? Will love be strong enough to pay the bills? This is the reality of life. Love is very important however a healthy balance with finances co mingled with love is also very important.

New Dawn said...

There is joy and blessings in giving.......... true love as you described is a rare find in this era ma'am .......but when found it is a priceless gem that should be cherished forever......hmmmm...never knew you were such a romantic at heart Patrina :)...ehehehe................. deep-.thought-provoking questions you asked Favoured.......is love enough to survive in this modern time with the constant rise in the cost of living?.............thank you very much ladies :)
