money? love. i would have to say love. definitely love. not for some millenials at least to a new service by comment. it found 41 percent of working millenials without a spouse or children would end a relation ship if it meant getting a promotion. love. that's sad to me. it's hard when you you don't have it to know how to value. to get a response between the ages of 0 and 36 and stay single for # # years, delay marriage for seven and put off having kids for 8. that's not surprising. if i had an opportunity to go to a grad school in a different story would be more important than staying with someone that didn't want to move with me. if everyone had their price this group is no different. a $37,000 pay bump was enough to end a relationship. they shouldn't be in the relationship at all. that's greedy. while postponing marriages children required nearly double that. where does that leave us in i
