Love Does Not Cost A Thing – Part 1
That love quote is one of my favourite love quotes! Do you need another love quote? Okay. How about this other one? “Whether you like it or not, believe it or not, whether it even makes sense to you or not, it is immaterial. All that matter is it is love – not money – that makes the world go round!”That last love quote is my all-time favourite; and it was coined out by my good self. Similarly, in my neighbourhood, there is also a popular love quote alluding to the connection between love and money. It goes this way:
“When you have money, girls will call you honey! But, when you have no money, girls will call you monkey!” – Original author unknown

No Romance Without Finance? But, is there really a connection between love and money? Well, the way people behave seem to suggest so. The general ideology of people everywhere nowadays is no romance without finance; or, no finance no romance. Indeed, there is certainly no denying the fact that the present day generation of teenage girls and young girls in their early 20s generally cherish money and material things more – when compared to girls of the same age group a few decades ago. And that attitude is not limited to girls alone. Their male counterparts generally behave in a similar fashion. The love for money is so great nowadays that some young people can even sell their own mothers in exchange for cold, hard cash! No lie! No joke! And that is precisely why moral values and an expression of true love has been on a steady decline over the last 30 years across the globe; because of the general prevailing attitude of”get rich or die trying”. Just take a look at the global divorce rate statistics for you to understand what l’m talking about here. As a reflection of this widespread behavioural attitude, Gwen Guthrie sang the song”Ain’t Nothin’ Goin’ On But The Rent”some couple of decades ago.
Some of the lyrics of the song are as follows:
- Boy, nothin in life is free Thats why Im askin you what can you do for me Ive got responsibilities So Im lookin for a man whose got money in his hands Cause nothin from nothin leaves nothin; You got to have somethin if you wanna be with me Oh, life is too serious, love too mysterious A fly girl like me needs security Cause aint nothin goin on but the rent You got to have a J-O-B if you wanna be with me Aint nothin goin on but the rent You got to have a J-O-B if you wanna be with me No romance without finance I said no romance without finance
- Waoh! That song was the bomb! And do you know why? Whether or not the views expressed by that song is the way Gwen personally felt about the connection between love and money is immaterial. What is important though is that the song sure captured and still captures the widespread attitude of people everywhere across the globe regarding love and money. If you think different, then show me a girl who simply cannot be bought! My guess is that it is in the ratio of one to a thousand! For the majority of girls it is no romance without finance!
Or, no finance no romance! Pure and simple. But, wouldn’t it make a refreshing change for once if we have more female folks who simply refuse to be bought? Personally, l do not see any pride of dignity there when you simply yield to the highest bidder! But, is there really a connection between love and money?
