    Oh, absolutely, money can buy love. But when the money is gone, so is the love. See ya!! It is like paying for a car, house or an apartment; the day you stop paying, well…. you know the rest. So my answer is definitely no. Money cannot buy love. Not true love, anyway.

    To a layman, a player: yes, but to someone like me, whose love is extremely expensive that even combination of billionaire’s money on this planet, earth cant buy: no. Love is not a riddled thing that can actually be bought over from me except I wish to give it out willingly to a responsible fellow. Thank you.

    They say “at the heart of every woman is a prostitute”
    And also “Every woman can be bought, the difference is just the price”.

    My love has never been bought, but maybe its because I’ve never met any one who’s proposed to pay a price that has sounded tempting enough, but I still think love can be bought with money.

Is Burundi’s President Out Of Line For Giving Unwed Couples An Ultimatum To Get Married By End Of This Year?

Unmarried couples have until the end of this year to legalize their relationships, the Burundi government said, as part of an effort to reform morals in the country.

Burundian President Pierre Nkurunziza

The order follows the launch of a campaign in May by President Pierre Nkurunziza “to moralize society” in Burundi. Interior ministry spokesperson Terence Ntahiraja told AFP the country was facing a population explosion which he blamed on “illegal marriages”, polygamy, bigamy and “hundreds of schoolgirls getting pregnant”.

He said church and state-sanctioned weddings were the solution and were a patriotic duty. Nkurunziza said Burundians should show their love for each other – and their country – by getting married. The government has since been pressuring unwed couples across the country to tie the knot.

Consequencies

Pierre, a 27-year-old farmer living with his partner in Ngozi, in the north, said local officials had threatened him with a 50 000 Burundian franc ($25) fine and said any child born out of wedlock would not be eligible for free education and medical costs.

The Obstacle

Pierre said he had not married because he could not afford the bride price demanded by his girlfriend’s family.

“She told me she was pregnant. As I am poor, we decided to come together to raise our child,” he said. “We thought we would legalize our union as soon as we could afford it.”

That was five years ago and the couple is now onto their third child.

No Excuses

To enact the president’s orders, officials have begun organizing mass weddings, something one civil society activist opposed as “a violation of human rights because the state has no right to attack two adults who have decided to live together without being married.”

President Trump on Sunday issued a new order indefinitely banning almost all travel to the United States from seven countries, including most of the nations covered by his original travel ban, citing threats to national security posed by letting their citizens into the country.

Starting next month, most citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea will be banned from entering the United States, Mr. Trump said in a proclamation released Sunday night. Citizens of Iraq and some groups of people in Venezuela who seek to visit the United States will face restrictions or heightened scrutiny.

People seeking access to the United States as refugees are not covered by the proclamation, officials said. Entry of refugees is currently limited by the president’s original travel ban, and officials said the administration was preparing new rules for refugees that should be announced within days.
