Does money matter in love?

money heats: does money matter in love?Does money matter when it comes to love? I get that question all the time. And considering I run a business called The Millionaire’s Club, someone who didn’t know me well would probably think I’d be able to give the simple answer of, “Hells yeah, it does!” But you, my loves, know me well enough to know that my answers are never that simple. And I don’t really ever say, “Hells yeah.” So, here’s what I have to say when it comes to money, love and the mixing of the two.

More is more

More money can mean more love. Now wait a second, I’m not saying that the amount of love you feel for someone should hinge on the amount of money that person has. But, it is easier to be happy in a relationship when finances aren’t a stressor in your relationship. And more cash flow normally means less financial stress. So, it’s not the reason you should fall for someone, but yeah, more money can make love a little easier.


Money is the number one reason couples fight. And while there’s no way to guarantee that you’ll never fight with your honey over money, a good way to minimize money fights is to be on the same page in terms of financial philosophy. If you’re a saver, partner up with a saver so you’re not constantly nagging your man about his spending. If you’re a spender, being with another spender will probably mean way less arguments about cashola. Finding a partner who handles money the same way you do will mean a lot less fighting and a lot more loving.

Who makes more?

This isn’t a popular opinion, but I’ve never been afraid to have those. It takes a very rare man to be okay with a woman out earning him. I’m not saying that it can’t be done at all or there’s no way for a high earning lady to find love with a more modest earning man. I’m just saying that it’s tough to find a man who’s sincerely comfortable with that dynamic. And it’s just a whole lot easier on a relationship when the earning discrepancy works the other way and the woman is out earned by the man. So, you might want to look up the financial food chain instead of down when you’re picking your next fellow.

What do you think, my loves? Am I on the money with the opinion or not? Let me know in the comments.
