The almighty dollar

It seems that material wealth has always been a number one in the American culture alongside with the opportunity ofself-determination and self-fulfillment. Today, as the economic situation in the country and the whole world shows, the time has come to change the priorities in the societys life. The United States are in great debts, and to some degree it is the societys fault as well because people have not noticed that serious problems were coming for they were in pursuit of material wealth. Now the youngest generations have to pay off the debts of the previous ones; so, it is a high time to put the longing for material wealth aside.
Not only Americans but all the other people as well should forget that money is everything in the world. Other peoples economic status is not as essential for communication and maintaining relationships as their personalities, thoughts and feelings. Very often, people who have quite large sums of money are much more narrow-minded and shallow than people with restricted funds.
However, it is not a good idea to partner with someone in personal relationship without taking his or her financial status into consideration. The matter that is one should be aware of any material problems these two together can face. Therefore, it is very important to know about a partners financial status to be able to build upon their mutual budget and help whenever it is necessary. It is also important because, as the saying goes, forewarned is forearmed.
