Marrying for money is nothing new. People have done it before, and it never ends well. There’s always a catch, always someone who can’t keep up with expectations or pay what they’re owed, but the people who are willing to do that in order to get something out of it usually end up alone, living on their own, and getting worse off day by day.
We’ve seen this movie before. It’s not a good idea to marry for money. And we know how happy those marriages usually end up being. But then again, we’ve also seen these movies where people get married for love and the guy just happens to be filthy rich.
