“Money makes the world go round”. Is this true in love and relationships? Can one start and sustain a healthy relationship without money or with inadequate income? I mean, have you ever tried paying your bills with a hug or a kiss? The answer, just like the answer to many of life’s questions, is YES and NO!
Yes in the sense that, Money is needed to fuel relationships. It’s not about the huge spending, but the little you can share with your partner. There is need to maintain this person’s needs, take care of the person in a way or the other, and that will be impossible without money. Even if it is possible it will be difficult to do it without money. For example say your partner is in the hospital and people are visiting, her friends come over with gifts and amazing “get well soon” presents, and all you do is visit her with nothing, not even an apple. Who in your opinion do you think stands the chance of being appreciated more? Just a simple flower or apple that costs about $1 you take to the hospital will make you stand a better chance of being appreciated. Like I earlier said, it’s not about the huge spending, but money is needed to fuel a relationship.
More so, the heart is inside you and no matter how you explain, it is difficult to know when you don’t show it out or express it. Some will say you can express it in order ways not necessarily through a display of wealth. True but it is the easiest and most recognized way of most partners. It is therefore difficult to express your love for somebody when all you do is tell this person and you can’t help this person financially when need be. Have you ever tried paying your bills with a hug or a kiss? I leave that for you to answer.
What some people fail to understand is that money just fuels a relationship, it can never buy love. You can buy a person presents but you can’t buy his or her heart. In other words the person might be with you but his heart and love are far from you and if you want to know how difficult it can be to leave with somebody whose heart is not with you but with your money, just lose your wealth.
Love therefore is not for sale and money can’t buy it. A person might be a big spender but yet treats you so bad, hits you for the case of women, disrespect you in front of her friends in the case of men, insults and cheats. It might come a time when you think you need money more than your partner, but I dare you to leave your partner for money and you will regret it just when even in the mist of all the wealth, you barely have the person to enjoy it with. Not that there is no body but just that there is no him or her. A house is not a home when your loved one is gone even with all the golden jewelries and cute clothes, expensive cars and all.
It should be noted that loneliness is not the absence of people; it is just the absence of the right person. Love can inspire, it can recreate, and it can build and transform any body into whatever his or her partner likes. If you want a rich man, make him out of your man and vice versa. Love can very well be expressed without money. For example a person can express his love by always granting his intellectual ability, his time, strength and many other resources.
Most often the problem with us is “what will my friends say” we could forget about our friend’s opinion on issues like this and get a happy and peaceful life, with or without money.
To conclude, money can only act as a fuel to relationships, but can never buy Love. If money runs this world then love could run a better world than this.
