She Spends All My Money
I got engaged to a woman. Now she's asking for money all the time, and arguing about it. I like to be frugal and save, she seems to like to spend and thinks nothing about tomorrow. Should I marry her?

You should not marry any woman that you don't feel right about. If you don't like her ways now, you probably won't like them later.

Maggie....I married my husband for his money and I'm still looking for it.

Break the engagement and you will be much happier over the longterm.

Marry for money the first time and marry for love the second was a saying that I heard in college. Avoid her like the plague.

I would cut the money off also. Life is too short to marry someone that just wants your money.

Stop giving her money and see if she stays.

Slim you should keep her slim and tell her- darlin we ain't married YET.
Now this is me cause I'm old and crotchety- I'd say 'and we ain't gonna be if you keep this up.'
Slim you have to establish boundaries or someone who's materially minded will ruin you. I don't speak from speculation Brother, my wife is a consumer minded person her answer to every thing is to throw money at it, she doesn't think about running out of answers till it happens. Then she looks my way!
Help her learn some self control by saying NO to her, and if she leaves over that she was using you anyway.

No. Avoid her like the plague.
My cousin is a surgeon with a huge income. He married a woman like that.
She went mental on him and did not like all the hours he was working. She SMOKED all the credit cards at high end stores in the mall. Tens of thousands of dollars in debt for jewelery and expensive cloths. He could not pay off monthly on a surgeons income!
It only lasted a couple of years before he divorced her and is now married to a good woman.

If you want to be broke and in debt then by all means, marry her.

No, you should not marry her. Money is a huge factor in divorces. Her attitude about money is a huge red flag. Get out now, before you regret it.

slim ,please dont take this personal. But are you kidding?Just as sue said,you think its bad now? marry her and she probably wont even ask.

If you think she spends money now, wait until you're married. An engaged woman should not be depending on her fiance for money. Please do not think that you can change her because you can't.
