The late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was rumored to have said, "The first time you marry for love, the second for money, and the third for companionship." If that is correct, a recent study would suggest couples are bucking that trend and marrying for money above love. 56% of Americans, in fact, say money motivated their decision to get married. We wanted to know how Southwest Michigan stacked up to these findings, so we asked you the big question; Marry for love, or marry for money?Here are the results:

  • Love: 13 people enthusiastically declared they married for money
  • For the Love of Money: 3 people
  • Health insurance: 1 person married for benefits
  • Neither: 1 (not sure if this person is single or has other motivations to put a ring on it
  • Misc: 1 survey participant was unclear toward their motivation
