Why You Definitely Shouldn’t Marry For Money

The Internet is flooded with articles telling you why you should find a guy with tons of cash and try to marry for money, and next to none on why you shouldn’t. Ignore all of this “smart women marry for money” BS and marry for love, or hell, don’t get married at all. Here are 10 reasons marrying Mr. Moneybags is never a good idea:

Because smart women don’t have to marry for money.

The Internet lied to you. Smart women don’t marry for money because they don’t have to marry for money. Smart women know how to make their own money and feel so much better about themselves for making it.

It won’t buy you happiness. 

Sure, money can buy you a fabulous vacation and that fabulous vacation will make you happy, but every vacation comes to and end.

It won’t solve your problems. 

Jay Z still has 99 of them and he has more money than any guy you’re going to get to marry you.

It might not last. 

Sure, they say the rich keep getting richer, but sometimes the rich go broke. Nicholas Cage seemed tolerable when he had a $150 million dollar fortune, but not so much when he had to file Chapter 7.

It will trap you. 

Money is the number one reason people stay in a loveless marriage, especially if it’s the reason they got into it in the first place. Most people with money want to protect their assets with iron clad prenups, so don’t plan on walking away unless you plan on walking away broke.

People with money still fight about money. 

Whether you’re fighting over hundreds or hundreds of thousands, money will always be a point of contention.

Love is priceless.

There’s no doubt that it’s corny, but if you only marry for money, you’ll never know what Taylor Swift is singing about. She’s talking about a blank space, not a blank check, people.

Because you’re not that cynical… yet. 

Maybe after your first marriage ends in a nasty divorce and you no longer believe in love, but for now, there’s still hope.

Because nothing is free. 

You might not have to ever work another day in your life, but nothing in this life comes for free. You’ll have to do SOMETHING to remain on the gravy train, and good luck blowing someone you aren’t even remotely attracted to.

Because you can’t be bought. 

Your integrity is worth way more than the millions he has in the bank.

Because the people who feel this way are unhappy. 

Any married person who suggests you marry for money is unhappily married. You should feel bad for them, not take their advice.
