I'll take my understanding of reality from the Beatles over a dating website any day of the week, Subby.

So if money can't by happiness, I guess I'll have to rent it.

Don't confuse Love with Rent-To-Moan.

I guess "Money can buy you a facsimile of love, YMMV as to how convincing this is" would have been too obvious a title for even an obvious bullshiat dating site?

Giant Clown Shoe: Rich > Poor

In love > Rich


Choice between money and love == False

Rich + In love == Awesome

I don't have the rich part down, but my rich aunt and uncle sure do. Man, that seems sweet. It's like being middle class and in love except with the capacity to take up ridiculous expensive hobbies and never have your travel destination determined by Groupon.

Right. Because she TOTALLY loves him for his personality, his kindness, his gentleness, his...

I just can't.

You realize this is the photo cover for Mnuchin's book "Riches Bring biatches, and Other Stories from the GOP," right?

Funny how much happier life can be when you don't have to stress about things like whether to get your kids food for the week or medical care.

Financial security is a necessary but not sufficient condition for a happy relationship.  More at 11.

The article doesn't mention anything about someone using money to attract a partner. What it says is that a couple that are financially secure enough that they don't have to stress about making basic ends meet are on average more happy. It also says couples that are more educated are more happy, which is probably due to the act of acquiring a higher education pushing marriage to later in life, giving people more time to figure out what kind of partner they're compatible with.

And money buys you time.

Money may or may not buy love, but it definitely buys beer, and that's all I need.

Money can't buy happiness but it can sure keep you comfortable in your misery.

I recall seeing a streetwalker prostitute once. There was an abandoned business, no lights, and a scantily clad woman standing in the parking lot near the road. I thought wow, what an incredibly sh•tty job.
