Love and Money
By Princess Pat Akpabio
”I am not saying that it is wrong to Marry a very rich man but the more stupendous the wealth, the more cautious you should be. In fact, the best thing is a man to have his money and the woman to have hers as well. So that giving in the relationship will be a function of generosity and not of love. It is easy to be generous with your money but you can’t love with money.”
Something I picked up while watching a movie on LOVE/MONEY and I thought I shared as food for thoughts: I am not saying that it is wrong to Marry a very rich man but the more stupendous the wealth, the more cautious you should be. In fact, “the best thing is for a man to have his money and the woman to have hers as well.
So that giving in the relationship will be a function of generosity and not of love.” It is easy to be generous with your money but you can’t love with money. If you love with your money, then when the money is no longer there, the love will no longer be there.
The question to be answered is,
What type of man are you?
What type of woman are you?
Are you a woman depending on a man to function financially?
Are you a man depending on a woman to function financially?
Then that is an error in the relationship waiting to happen when either gets tired of giving the money or the money is gone. Both men & women should be financially independent of each other while depending on each other as well. Do not do 50%/50% but bring 100%/100% from both parties so that there will always be a balance should one come short of a fraction of a percentage.
Love independently of money. Don’t make money the reason to love so that you will live a happy life and don’t feel obligated to stay in a relationship that is not working out for you anymore because of the financial entanglement incurred in the process; where you compromise happiness and a chance of finding true love because of PITY. In the long run, you will regret it when you realize that money can not buy you peace of mind nor happiness and put into consideration all the BS you have to put up with as a man or as a woman.
We need to process our feelings out and men and women we have to use our God-given talents to make money for ourselves individually not depending solely on what the man gives or the woman. Sincere love y’all! Love and be free to walk if it ain’t working!
