Maybe. If I really liked the guy as a person, and could trust him to follow ground rules with things on the side, then definite maybe.

I wouldn’t at this point in my life, though. Now that I have my own career, I am my own sugar. Don’t need it from any man.

I have always thought, though, that I could be a good trophy wife for an ambitious spouse, if I were only a bit more of a trophy. Tongue out Like I would be a good politician’s wife. Those ladies are usually really sharp and savy.

Yes I could. Life would be easy and I could have anything I wanted. I probably wouldn’t fool around while the kids were under 18, but to have to opportunity to have them set for life without worrying about money would be a big advantage to me.

Love is nice, but marriage is about choosing to be with someone and sticking with them no matter what. As long as you know upfront what you are getting into, who am I to knock people who get married just or money?

Not in my life here and now. If I was living in a poor country with no family, resources, or ability to get a job? Probably. 

I would rather be independent and self-made with the possibility of a great romance and life on my own terms. I couldn’t imagine staying in a relationship where we were not 100% committed/in love. Of course there will be hard times when we don’t get along, but I think that foundation of love is what makes the hard times worth it.
