no (of course i'm already married), but if i wasn't my answer would still be no. that would be like making a purchase of a person, that's just wrong! reminds me of a friend i had that wasted thousands of dollars trying to buy a russian bride. even traveling over to russia several times to try & purchase her. we are no longer friends. and thank God he didn't actually buy her.

I thought I had strong morals, you people who "wouldn't marry because it's wrong" are making me look like minced meat. Hell that billion dollar enterprise that Anna Nicole's husband "Howie" had made him look kinda sexy...wheelchair, liverspots, and all. wink

Nah seriously though, I would need more info. Just like I have a problem spending "blood money", I would have a problem lavishing in wealth if I was knowingly taking advantage of someone. If there were somehow a "reality show" that was going to dish out that kinda money to see what would happen, and we both went into the situation with our "eyes wide open"...I'd probably have little or no guilt.

I'm at the stage of my life where I'm doubting that "true love" (the way it's presented to little girls as children and teenagers) exist. There is no "Knight in Shinning Armor". I think folks love each other, and work desperately hard to remain in each other's lives even if that means that they overlook cheating, abuse, and all other horrible things. Very few people want to be alone.

I'm still trying to come to my own "realistic" conclusion about what "love" really is in regards to romance. But here's what I've learned thus far....love is NOT the butterflies and the obsessive thoughts, and the hot nights filled with passionate sex. That aint it. The marriages that I observed that "last" are somewhat of an "arrangement", and neither party is willing to let the other party go....at least not at the same time. So eventhough one person might become disinterested, the other person is holding on to the marriage, and then when that person becomes tired, the other spouse holds on tightly. Kinda like a "buddy system". So there is always at least one person pulling to keep the marriage together. Now when that no longer happens...then we have divorce.

If you research back to the beginning of time, hardly ANY marriages had anything to do with LOVE. They were all arrangements from early on, and folks "grew" to love each other. At some point in time things changed and now we look for love "First". Go figure.

Although I'm your biggest fan...I'm also your biggest critic. Can you deal with that?

Considering all the love I've seen in my lifetime between family members, and all the REAL SHIT they've gone through to keep their love and their families and their sanity, there is no way in this world I'm gonna choose some useless cash over the fraudulent love. Why would I do that? I'm not that kind of person.

'Cause....okay...so I'm rich, right? I'd rather share that with someone I love right off the bat. Not go through all these ridiculous changes to find out whether Imma love this new person or not. We're humans, not pets to be bred. Am I getting paid to breed with this person? Seriously. Sure you can grow to love someone. But what if you don't fall in love? You've got your dumb old money, you gotta get a divorce, and they get half. lol

And what if he decides to kill me off and keep all the loot? So now I'm dead, and some crook got my money! And I didn't even get to spend it on all the stupid things I wanted, like houses and diamond-encrusted dildos....or my own Lesbian Bar equipped with the latest in disco technology! COME ON!! I'd like to exercise my right to marry someone I love--no matter how it turns out. Not be reduced to being bought/sold into something that doesn't feel right to me.

I might answer differently a few years from now, but one of the things on my "to do list" of life is to get a chance to love someone. I mean really love them. Good times, bad times, and those incredibly shitty times that seem to pop up at the drop of a hat these days. Can't put a price on real love....

Generally speaking, I would say no. No matter how easy and no strings things appear on the surface, you could be sure that would be all sorts of sorridness connected to that amount of money for hire and frankly,I wouldn't want any part of it. In my fantasy world though, I could see it happening if it were for a friend, and they were some kind of trouble like needing to clock in on an inheritance. Like this movie:

Otherwise, meh.

If I look over my life goals, making or having a billion dollars didn’t make the list. Finding and maintaining a lasting, loving relationship did.

I can imagine a scenario that I might accept such a proposal (I’m single with no prospects, the “suitor” is a good friend I care for and respect, we have an honest, mutual understanding of how our marriage would work and many other factors, etc.) but even then, probably not.

Money’s not that important to me. shrug

Yes providing I didn't have to fuck him, could fuck who I wanted, and I got at least half my money up front and tax free!

Sounds cold but think about it...you don't love this person, not even a little bit and you have to stay with them for the rest of your friggin life. If this person knows you don't love them, imagine what a horrible life they could make for you- emotional and possibly physical abuse. One thing I've learned about men....they can't stand for a woman not to think they are GOD's GIFT! Big blow to the ego.

I sat here and thought about it for a while... hmmm

* Does he love me, and I just don't feel the same way? So there's the possibility he'd treat me really well... smile

* Would I at least "like" him? We could develop a friendship and deep admiration for one another.... nod

* What would he look like? If he's paying a billion for a wife, probably not too good. hmm

At this point, I can't find love, so I've basically given up on marrying for that reason.

With today's economy, I'll be working until I die. It'd be kind of nice to not have to worry about money....

I can't decide! bawl

This is exactly what I was thinking. I can see myself living like that for a while, but not forever.

For a billion dollars would you marry someone you didn't love? (forever-no divorcing!)

ANSWER: Yes, I would marry the woman for a billion dollars, provided that it's written in the pre-nup agreement BEFOREHAND that I can keep the $1 billion if OR when she ended the marriage in divorce. wink

hmmm... I think people are cheating by saying they could be married but separated. lol the question then becomes moot. I mean there's got to be some price to pay for the $1 billion... anyone would take the money with no strings...

Yes I would. You don't need someone who loves you to have a great life and with a billion bucks I bet I'd have a better time than most people who are married to someone they "love".

Gawd I hate that movie!

On what planet is Demi Moore worth fucking for a million dollars?

On what planet is Woody Harrelson a better pick than Robert Redford?

On what planet does Robert Redford have to pay a million dollars to fuck anybody?

On what planet is Robert Redford even a single and lonely man?

Honeymoon in Vegas was much better! lol
