Love or money?

An age old question.

Ideally, you wouldn't have to decide between the two.

In a perfect world, you would be able to find the true love of your life and be incredibly wealthy all at once.

But, as the saying goes, you can't have everything.

Though if faced with having to choose between the two, people might have a different idea of what the obvious answer would be.

Redditor lulinghayaw was curious how people would decide when faced with this decision, leading them to ask:

"Genuine, true love or 5 million dollars? Why?"


My love is worth more than that.

"True love because my true love is 5 trillion dollars."- ImOnARush.

Freedom to do what you love.

"I'm gonna be really honest, I'd choose 5 million dollars."

"Having that much money means financial stability."

"It means not having to work for money - that wouldn't mean not working ever again, but doing a job you really love even if it doesn't pay well."

"I would be able to study without worrying about burdening my parents."

"I could achieve my dream of getting multiple degrees."

"Money isn't just money, it's opportunities."

"Without having to worry about money, I could focus on improving myself in every way - getting healthier, studying more, having a stable routine, reading a lot, overall becoming the best version of myself."

"I'll have plenty of time to find true love, improve relationships with friends and family and everything else."- lux_blue.

How much is true love worth.

"Money."

"Love can't pay my bills."- LiteLit.

Money can't buy happiness.

"True love."

"Moneys cool and all, but I'd much rather be in a loving relationship."- WhiskersCleveland.

But money can buy a lot of other things...

"5 mil, I’ll wipe my tears with hundreds."- Weary_Gate7941.

True love...with a rich partner.

"Genuine true love."

"It didn't say my partner and I would be poor."- moonIightbaby.

"The greatest thing, you'll ever learn..."

"True love."

"I have been alone all my life."

"I’ve always had toxic friends because i told myself i deserved it, i told myself 'at least they want to be friends with me'."

"I have a narcissistic mother and a dad that isn’t emotionally there because of his own trauma."

"I have a sister that flat out ignores me when I talk and my other siblings are too young for me to have the kind of bond that i need right now."

"I have an amazing best friend but it’s different than having someone that loves me and i love back."

"If you had asked me a month ago i would’ve said 5 million."

"I would’ve been lying."

"If you had asked a year ago I would’ve said 5 million and I would’ve been telling the truth. true love is priceless."

"I’ll be winning 4 million on the lottery tho."- 76543210987654321.

Some might say being truly, madly in love feels like having five million dollars.

While others might feel that having five million dollars feels even better than being in love.

Others might simply strive for a little bit of each.

There is no bigger mystery than what happens to us after we die.

But even those who don't practice an organized religion tend to believe that there is a Heaven, a happy joyful place where our souls will remain for eternity.

No two people share the same idea of what heaven would be like, but everyone who believes in it probably has an idea of the first thing they'd do after entering the pearly gates.

"If heaven exists, what’s the first thing you’d do?"

"Fun facts" generally refers to a tidbit of information about a specific topic which the general public might not have otherwise known about.

But the first word in that term can be misleading.

Indeed, some "fun facts" reveal information that isn't remotely "fun" in the slightes.

What's a 'fun fact' that isn’t fun at all?"
