CBS Local – Does love really conquer all? If it’s up against cold, hard cash – true love may be choice No. 2.

According to a survey conducted by Survey Monkey and Money magazine, more people would choose the cash over love.

Predictably, those happily married are the least likely to choose money over true love. Alarmingly, though, barely more than half would choose true love over $1 million. The majority shifts to money when asking single, never married participants at 55 percent. Coming in at a whopping 71 percent opting for the money are those who are separated.

(It’s important to note that one cannot extricate money problems from this equation. Another question asked was if the participants had anxiety about their money situation, of which around 70 percent answered ‘yes’, so that’s at play, too.)

Here’s all that information wrapped up in a neat graphic.

Can we call a love of money true love, at least? Count it – it’s a technicality, but we still love something!
