Money Issue In Relationships

Dating someone that you truly love, cherish, respect and admire is a beautiful thing especially when it is reciprocal. The feelings of affection that comes with dating is something that makes a relationship alive, strong and active but most times the absence of money makes it all boring especially when a man has little to offer the woman in terms of cash and gifts.

Apparently, every woman likes to be showered with gifts and money as that alone makes them feel loved and cared for but not every man have what it takes to meet up to such task. Sometimes, women can be so demanding to the extent that they want to have everything they ever wished for. I have seen cases of breakups caused by the issue of money, just because a guy couldn't afford to buy his girlfriend some shoes.

This whole thing makes me wonder if there's anything like TRUE LOVE in relationships without MONEY. Don't get me wrong, i won't advice any lady to date a complete broke guy just because she loves him but she might go ahead if she's ok with it. Anyways, that's optional but the question is Can A Relationship Work Out In The Absence Of Money ?

  • Although most relationship are dependant on money but it's takes the mind set of the parties. True love doesn't depend on money..

  • It can work and it depending on type of lady one marry, their are some lady who are consistent with either big or small that comes from husband while some are not even if they get all what they want they will still be demanding more and more. It can only work mostly from practicing religions lady that took Allah first in whatever they are doing and have believe in God.

  • In my own opinion money is not love and love is not money..... But when you love you give, love means giving...... Don't love someone because of money, don't make it a priority.... Love someone for who the person is not for money because money can go

  • No,Relationship can never work well with the absence of money oh because at a certain point in time peradventure your girl agreed to your brokeness level,she will definitely be tired of your inability to give oh.. Love is sweet oh. But when money enter love is sweeter

  • Relationships have worked perfectly in either ways, but mostly when money is hugely involved. Dating some one who is broke is annoying, because even when the rich person is not complaining, the poor one is feeling upstanding.

  • This is a thing that has been causing more harm than good to relationships lately,  like I broke up with my girlfriend because I couldn't afford to pay her house rent

  • Everything is not about money, relationship can work out with or without money, what matters most is understanding. 

    - Grace Olawale - 2019-08-16 20:37:43 Quote

  • I really do think it can work however it depends on how both parties see it. But on a second thought money can add a lot of spice and ingredients to the relationship but it should not be built on that beacuse it may not last 

    - Benedict Oge - 2019-08-16 22:23:00 Quote

  • Love can work without money, but it won't just be as that perfect. Money is one of the elements of love. Where money is there is love, but this is not universal

    - Emmanuel Iyanu - 2019-08-16 22:24:30 Quote

  • If love is involved I don't think money can stop the relationship.

    But still with money it sounds better

    - Chigozie Emmanuel - 2019-08-16 22:32:32 Quote

  • To be frank, there's no True Love in dis contemporary world without money. No lady will ever love a man if he's broke. That's why we see many of our ladies today looking for an already made man as they call it. No one wants to suffer, most especially the ladies

    - Kelly Emmanuel - 2019-08-16 22:38:55 Quote

  • I think a relationship can work in the absence of money. This depends on the woman. If the woman is the type that likes money a lot the relationship will fail. But if she is the type that values relationship more than money that relationship will stand firm

  • Money makes things easy o, sure love is important and all but love doesn't last in discomfort. And money brings comfort.

  • As you tightly said,  every woman want to be showed with  gift in order to feel loved and cared! Therefore,  there is not absolute  love without money!!

  • Relationship can actually work with or without money but it still goes down to the mutual understanding that exist between each other

    - Oluchi Raychelle - 2019-08-17 05:43:34 Quote

  • For Every relationship to be hold and stand out seriously there is going to be Trust, tolerance, Understanding and contentment. Money is not everything in relationship at all.

  • Relationship can exit without money, once their is love and trust, because in some case especially a lady can cheat in a relationship if the guy do not provide for her needs.

    - Adesua Pelumi - 2019-08-17 06:45:53 Quote

  • Most certainly there is true love when there is no money in the relationship..  I think a girl  that has an issue with a guy that doesn't have money is when she is not independent..  Don't get me wrong here,  a girl can be contented with what she has,strive to get more and even help her guy become better..  This idea of rich men, 'I wamy to marry a rich man' has led many astray... Leaving  their true love for money.. They end up regretting their marriage...

    Do you know what will become of your true love in few years time even tomorrow?

    Do you know if that guy you are running after is driving his last car in life? 

     Finally,  ladies it's better we have our own Cassi that at the end of the day when getting  married comes up money won't be the priority...

  • Money is very essential in relationship because without money love is not 100% guaranteed

    - Nwobi wisdom - 2019-08-17 08:04:26 Quote

  • Yes relationships can work out without money,  because if all the ladies are waiting for rich men they may never be in a relationship at all.

    - Miracle Mbalisi - 2019-08-17 08:46:38 Quote

  • Yes, True relationships can work without money, but what about the long run, I just don't think love is enough most times to substain a relationship forever.

    - Elizabeth Daniel - 2019-08-17 10:37:28 Quote

  • Dating a guy that is broke at the moment does not means that he is completely broke. If there is LOVE nobody needs to tell you what to do. If the guy has a plan but does not have a source of finance to make it a reality, the lady should be the one to assist him if she is really meant for him.

    - Iniobong Akpan - 2019-08-17 12:17:07 Quote

  • To everyone saying it can work out without money,  I guess you really do not know nor understand the nature of women. My take is,  there will be a lot of friction in a relationship without money

    - Seun Afuye - 2019-08-17 12:39:54 Quote

  • For some, they think that money is importantbecause, without money, their relationship will fall. On the other hand, some people think that love is more important than money, and the reason being that money can't buy love and love is what makes the world goes around

    - Abakura Umoru - 2019-08-17 15:38:02 Quote

  • I

    Yes it can work out. If there's a mutual understanding between the partners.understandig each other's financial status , effectively communicating with the other party can save the relationship.

  • The truth is that it can actually work, but money is necessary cause love is better expressed than fantasizing. The bitter truth is that even if it stands it will always have trials especially in a case of a beautiful lady and an ugly poor guy.

    - Ekwueme Ebenezer - 2019-08-18 14:34:49 Quote

  • It can work, depending on the foundation of the relationship that is if it was built on truth, the lady should know the financial status of her man that way there  will be no problem.

  • I plan to gather much money before falling into a relationship, but the money isnti just coming. Money is very important in a relationship.

  • Personally i look at money as a thing to add the finishing touches in a marriage or something to beautify the love relationship. It's good to have money and spend in a relationship but it shouldn't be a determinat factor in the love of a relationship

  • Money is important, because the person I truely loved I would like to help her in some aspects

    - Olamoyero Rosheed Adewale - 2019-08-20 11:24:05 Quote

  • Money is the core aim in every relationship cos without money the relationship is as good as dead. You might be a very good and caring husband oo, but once she finds a man that can take proper care of her basic needs better than you do, trust me she will leave you for him eventually. 

    - Famose Ayomide Abidemi - 2019-08-20 11:27:30 Quote

  • Its true that for a relationship to work, there has to be love and understanding. Its also important to be able to afford basic needs. U might love someone but if theres no money to assist and enjoy the joys, fraustration will set in. Love is sweet but love with money is sweeter.

    - Ojugbele Tunde - 2019-08-20 15:13:20 Quote

  • People forget money is just a tool to get what you want per time, if relationship is based on that then that is a business transaction. If understand what I mean. 

    - Joshua Iyama - 2019-08-20 15:56:19 Quote

  • Patience, endurance, hardwork and skills are very good in the relationship. if you do not have money now should not be that you are lazy because money is also necessary in relationships.

  • Money is important, because the person I truely loved I would like to help her in some aspects

    Money as to be important, just bcoz the person you may truly love and he/she will like to help her in some aspects

  • Relationship is not always about money. If LOVE exists in the relationship, the two parties doesn't have to base their relationship on money. One thing I believe is that we're together to  help each other out in every situation we see ourselves, if A doesn't have and B can provide then it shouldn't be a problem for B to help. Love is beyond money and other materials. If relationship is based on money then we can easily buy or sell out love because of money. We just have to learn how to help each other, it doesn't have to be the guys responsibility all the time.

  • Its rare you see girls that hustle with guys nowadays but money is a major factor in a relationship tho but not only the man should be considered when talking about money in a relationship

    - John Akingunola - 2019-08-21 18:50:29 Quote

  • Money covers 70% in a relationship ooo, when there is no money is hard to cope it only takes the grace of God to continue without money, because money is one of the things that controls the world today, so we need money in our relationship to continue warm and sweet relationship.

    - Richard Ejiro - 2019-08-22 07:49:22 Quote

  • In some ways money isn't too important if the two partners are well to do ... They will just support each other when necessary. But it also depends on the mindset of a partner especially the ladies.So I feel you just have to study your partner first.

    - Eka Ntuen - 2019-08-22 08:34:46 Quote

  • Yes of course relationships can work out without money depending on the chain holding the both of you 

    - Kelvin Ndukwe - 2019-08-22 08:57:29 Quote

  • Relationship needs money...but nowadays the ladies take it to another level....they expect the guy to be taking care of everything....when they are not their parents...which z not fair

    - Ikenga Dominic Chukwuemeka - 2019-08-22 16:20:29 Quote

  • Money should not be the foundation of any relationship because when the money is not Anymore, the relationship will crumble. Love your partner unconditionally and make your money together and you both will live happily ever after. 

    - Osinachi Ukah - 2019-08-23 04:23:23 Quote

  • Dating a guy or girl that is broke doesn't mean he or she will be broke for ever. Relationship can exist without money if the two understand, trust and love themselves. It takes God nothing to change your bad condition for good.

  • Money is very important in marriage that's why both the man and the woman should have something tangible they will engage in so that when one lacks another will support.

    And support is one of the aim God gave Adam Eve and so it is in marriage. Reason why there are lots of issues in marriages is because most marriages the man is at the bringing endno one go support him and when he gets fade up, issues starts arising.
