I'm already single forever for free, so bring on the money. Getting a bunch of money without having to do anything sounds like the best thing ever.

I can't imagine most people taking the money and not regretting it in 20 years. Your friends will mostly all be married. You going on those vacations yourself? Living in your mansion alone? At some point you just become the crazy rich dude trying to buy your friends' time. Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't asexual people also want companionship?

Personally, having someone who knows you, loves you, and validates you is worth more than money.

Not even if I wasn't already married. I need close relationships. Even with the money I'd spend the rest of my life feeling desperately lonely.

I'm going to be single forever anyway. No on will have a piece of trash like me. The money would just be a bonus.

No. I make enough money now to feel secure and my wife has been my best friend through some of the shittiest parts of my life. My priority is for my wife to be supported and loved - not for my own selfish pursuit.

As a gay man, I've never seen myself as fitting into the heteronormative expectation of getting married, settling down, having kids anyway, so yeah show me the money.
Oct 27, 2017
20 million isn't even close to enough to have me even entertain this thought. Add a 0 and I'd have considered it and sided with my boyfriend in the end anyway.

Forever single... but also being able to setup your immediate family for the foreseeable future if invested correctly? Oh man I'd seriously consider doing that.

I'd consider doing that for my siblings and parents alone.

I am doing that for free right now. So, I will be a bit stupid not to take such money. With that amount of money, I can at least wipe my tears with 100 dollars bill.

I'm married but I said deal.

I would take it, transfer half to my now-ex-husband, and accept that we'll be best friends.

Besides, love isn't constrained by how you're legally recognized. (I'm assuming single here just means you can't get married ever.)

Absolutely 100% yes! That is a life changing amount of money. I’d even be celibate for life if I had to just show me the money.

Having unstable and generally small income is what’s making me have occasional thoughts of dying. Considering I don’t party or have generally dangerous and expensive addictions like drugs or alcohol, having that amount of money would literally save my life.
