We can all agree that it’s important to have money before getting into a relationship. However, is there anything wrong with making it clear that you are only in the relationship with someone for their money, and that you’ll probably leave when it runs out?
This was the conversation Sizwe Dhlomo and Media Personality, Khanyi Mbau, recently unpacked on Kaya Drive about relationships and money.
Listen to the full conversation here:
Here are some nuggets we learned from Khanyi about relationships:
Be clear about what you want in a relationship
Mbau, who shared on the show that she recently received a Lamborghini from her partner which is still yet to be delivered, says she treats relationship the same way she would do when buying a car or a house.
“You know what you want in a house. I want 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, I want an entrance hall, I want a pool etc. That’s how I treat my relationships as well, these are my requirements, this is what I want and I am not backing down from it. People like going into relationships and say I am looking for love, 2 weeks after that they are looking for something else and that’s why you’ll never win. Because you haven’t made it clear what you want. ”
Men must have money to attract women with money
Mbau says that for men, it’s a lot trickier to go for women for their money, she says if you want a girl in a car, you must also have a car.
“If you want a girl with money you must have money, a man in a relationship is like the cops, you must serve and protect. So if you can’t serve and protect, yeka Joe. You’ve already missed it… White people will tell you, you must marry well.”
Love is a condition, and you must maintain it
She also says that the reality is very different from what we’ve learned from Hollywood movies, that there’s actually a price to pay in any relationship.
“Love has a condition that needs to be maintained when you can’t maintain that condition that’s when the love ends. Love is a condition, stop watching “The Bold and The Beautiful”, stop watching these rom-coms, love is a condition.”
Listeners of the Kaya Drive also weighed in on how they viewed being in a relationship for money.
