    No it doesn't.
    Too many women care about money and too many men care about sex.

    Too many people care about money.

    Yes of course it does.

    Money helps everything
  • Gregaj7 2012/05/03 04:12:56
    Yes of course it does.
    Never asked how much. Having none doesn't help matters.

    Yes of course it does.
    Yes most definitely.

    My wife and I have been together for 10 years and have owned a home together for the last 8. We keep our money separate...no joint accounts. A modest direct deposit payment comes out of her paycheck and into my account every week. I am the only one that takes care of the bills so there is never any..."Did you pay that this month?" In 10 years we have probably argued about money 5 times.

    As long as the core of the bills (Mortgage, Utilities car payment etc..) are taken care of with an efficient setup whatever money remains in our separate accounts...see ya...feel free to use as necessary.

    Yes of course it does.
    Money only matters when there is not enough.

    It's been said "It's just as easy to marry a person with money as it is to marry a poor one!". It just depends on what your priorities are at the time.
  • BeautifulSoul 2012/05/03 03:47:09
    No it doesn't.
    Nope :3

    Somewhat, yeah.
  • PonToki 2012/05/03 02:38:15
    Yes of course it does.
    I don't think its how much you have that matters, but rather how responsible you are with it. I don't want to marry someone who is a shopaholic or can't budget.
  • ★misfit★ 2012/05/03 02:19:33 (edited)
    Yes of course it does.
    Not how much you have, but whether or not you both agree on how it's managed. Financial problems are the number one cause of divorce.

    Yes of course it does.
    Money helps keep stress levels controlled on both end. I'm not saying you buy love. I saying romance without finance stand a hard chance. Corny, I know. But it's usually true.
  • Indie 2012/05/03 02:04:18
    No it doesn't.
    Just a little bit
  • BIG BAD JOHN R. 2012/05/03 01:47:01
    Yes of course it does.
    Yea, you try dating and living without it and let me know how you fair! pot of gold
  • Flyingbug 2012/05/03 01:42:34
    Yes of course it does.
    Money is one of the major things that can break a relationship. If one partner is a saver and the other a spendthrift, there WILL be arguments. I've seen it in my own family.
  • TheMadChameleon 2012/05/03 01:37:27
    No it doesn't.
    If so, boy am I doing poorly, since I am broke and so is my boyfriend!
  • MOMMA THOMAS 2012/05/03 01:14:00
    Yes of course it does.
  • Figment 2012/05/03 01:11:11
    Yes of course it does.
    Yes, because if a couple that does not think the same way about finances they will have much to fight about. My wife and I are on the same page. She usually makes the yearly household budget.
  • FrozenHeart 2012/05/03 00:59:31
    Yes of course it does.
    I REALLY wish I could say it didn't but it does.
  • Fluttershyfan 2012/05/03 00:15:19 (edited)
    Yes of course it does.
    As much as we'd like to believe it doesn't, who are we kidding? How many people would actually prefer to date a poor person than to date a rich one? We're greedy. It's in human nature. If we have a choice, we choose more. That's just how it is.
  • Mustang Girl 2012/05/03 00:09:00
    Yes of course it does.

    Actually it depends. At least the relationships I've been in it does.... But if you love each things will workout if you're not rich!!
  • jacob crim 2012/05/02 23:33:40

    It does to a certain extent but I do not think it should be the key to a relationship.
  • TheHushedScreamer 2012/05/02 23:31:26
    Yes of course it does.
    I'd love to say no, but everyone knows it's true; Money matters. Money's what makes the world go around. One of the most stressful situations a relationship has to deal with is their economical problems.
  • meho 2012/05/02 23:21:31
    Yes of course it does.
    I would like to think not but sadly it does in most cases.
  • Kyra 2012/05/02 22:51:09

    Money makes it worse.
  • jere.chievres 2012/05/02 22:42:59

    Only if there isn't enough!
  • wackychocolate221 2012/05/02 22:34:40
    Yes of course it does.
    As long as you don't use the person for their money.
  • the judgebigdogeagle-~PWCM~JLA 2012/05/02 22:33:35
    Yes of course it does.

    It makes it easier aslong as you do not over due like some friends I have do.
  • Maleficent 2012/05/02 22:14:54
    No it doesn't.
    well to me it really doesn't.
  • Joyblossom 2012/05/02 21:46:48
    No it doesn't.
    Of course not! I have all the money I need already :)
  • wpsark 2012/05/02 21:44:31 (edited)
    Yes of course it does.
    To a certain degree. Money problems cause stress in a relationship..Especially when one is pulling all the weight.
  • Vision of Verve 2012/05/02 21:32:43
  • L1 2012/05/02 21:31:20
    Yes of course it does.
    Yes, it does if the relationship is going serious as in marriage. Any liabilities are also on the spouse, not just assets.
  • miztemecula 2012/05/02 21:26:49
    Yes of course it does.
  • mike 2012/05/02 21:20:07
    Yes of course it does.
    it probably shouldn't matter as much as it does, but it does.
  • Ben 2012/05/02 20:49:58
    Yes of course it does.
    Everything matters in a relationship.
  • Zippcodey 2012/05/02 20:48:54
    Yes of course it does.
    Money problems is the main cause for most divorces.
