Obviously that isn’t the only factor. But is there anything wrong with taking wealth into consideration when looking for a shidduch?
It seems relatively frequent for long time learners to seek wealth in a potential shidduch to support their Kollel years. When a girl looks to marry for money it seems as people look at that with revulsion.
Don’t Chazal warn against marrying into a moneyed family?January 31, 2014 10:07 am at 10:07 am #1002439King19Member
Think about it logically. Why marry someone who you can’t please her the way she was pleased when she was younger? Unless she has beautiful middos, where you don’t have to worry about her not being pampered.January 31, 2014 12:32 pm at 12:32 pm #1002440TheGoqParticipant

ask LOR. kiddushin 70a “kol hanoyseh isha lshoom mamon, havyan lai banim she’ainam mihuganim.(theres some more” ) rashi says thats only if she has a psool and you ignore it for the money. check sh”u and stuff on the page whether or not its limited to a psoolJanuary 31, 2014 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #1002443Being RealParticipant

In Mishlei it says sheker hachein vhevel hayoifi, which implies marrying for money is a good thing. About money Shlomo Hamelech says oiheiv kesef lo yisbah kesef, but hey no problem, just keep marrying more rich girls.

These days people are crazy about keeping tradition and want their children to marry a learning boy. Its not the girls fault thats how they were raised.
so if your gonna be marrying a kollel boy and the wife will be working full time and taking care of a handful of children.. then money will be a plus. it will be helpful to the craziness, but to marry because he / she is stam rich. then noFebruary 3, 2014 5:14 pm at 5:14 pm #1002447Torah613TorahParticipant
Dreykup, why are you so worried about it? Do you have money and want to make sure boys aren’t accepting shidduchim just because of your father? Or do you not have money and want people to look at other factors instead?February 3, 2014 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #1002448👑RebYidd23Participant

This can be the most painful way to get money. You may be better off taking up bank robbing or hard labor.February 9, 2014 3:38 am at 3:38 am #1002454👑RebYidd23Participant
