No love involved. Just trading your body for cash. Isn't it just glorified prostitution?

Prostitutes sell their bodies for cash.
Expensive spouses sell their bodies for an entire lifestyle!

As Dr. Phil says, when you marry for money, you earn every penny of it. Whatever that means.

Yes, OP, it is. When you have a short term contract (usually oral) the term used is whore. When you have a long term contract (usually with trumped up ritual) the term used is wife.

You say that as if it's a bad thing.

I use this argument when I tell my shrink why I engage occasional...services.
What's the difference? It's paying for a service.
Then, I give her her co-pay.

Not really. If you marry for real money, it is work. You have to always be "on" and have to be available 24/7.

No. There's nothing glorified about it. Prostitution is much more honest for everyone involved

My Russian cousin came to the US 20 years ago and married a woman for her money. I told him it was a mistake. Twenty years later and he's had a great life. She set him up in business, they live in beautful homes, travel constantly, have nice kids.
You know sometimes marrying for money isn't a bad idea after all. It's much better than being a prostitute.

There's nothing inherently bad about marrying for money. Our weird, human behavior in this part of society has us fucked up on indelible ideals of romance that are illusions. Romance cannot possibly be the cornerstone of commitment, though we're all kind of trapped in that pattern now. Add that to our fucked up ideas about money, and you have a recipe that can make gold-digging an ugly, sad endeavor.
In many other places, marriages are arranged or organized for practicalities that would yield the highest quality of life.

No. What's would be wrong is to convince your wealthy spouse that you're marrying for love, when all you want is the spending money.
But sometimes there is barely a pretense of love, some people are happy knowing that they've exchanged their money for beauty, or vice versa. Some people don't want to contribute anything else to a relationship.

Actually, that's more like traditional marriage--in terms of history.

this is ideal for any closeted gay man / gay woman looking for similarly closeted spouses to satisfy their parents ( who could not believe they have raised gay children). if both parties engaging in this setup agree and actually prefer this kind of setting, problem solved. they can even live separately within a house for convenience. i would prefer this too if i were gay. or straight.
