So, I'm watching an old episode of Sex & The City and Carrie needs money. She has to find a new apartment, but doesn't have enough for a down payment. The bank will not give her a loan because she doesn't have good credit or enough in her savings account.
She goes to her ex-boyfriend, BIG, and tells him about her problem. He writes her a check for $30,000.
When she tells her girlfriends that BIG gave her money to put down on a New York apartment, they have mixed feelings.
Miranda offers to give her the money instead, at least half. Samantha offers to give her the other half. Charlotte doesn't say anything.
Later, Carrie confronts Charlotte about why she didn't offer to loan her money (like Samantha and Miranda). Carries tells Charlotte that if she was in trouble and needed money she would be there for her.
So my first question is, if you were in financial need would you accept money from your man - your boyfriend? Does it matter how long you guys have been dating? What if he was your fiance? What about your ex-boyfriend?
Now, $30,000 is a lot of money. Would you lend that much to a friend of you had it to spare?
Let me know your thoughts.
