Since the dawn of time, there has been a conflict between love and money. Which one will you choose if you can’t have both?
When Araba Koomson, JoyNews Editor, took her turn on Moments with Joy on Friday, she was thrown in that corner.
The media personality, on the other hand, had no trouble deciding.
“Between love and money, I value love more,” she says.
She went on to say that, while love is paramount, money is also necessary in partnerships.
“You can’t use love to go to the market and buy tomatoes,” Miss Koomson added, citing the upkeep of a household.
“Money is also vital; it isn’t the most significant factor, but it is important, and you can’t ignore it,” she said.
The news anchor, who is not materialistic, also stated that she would not hesitate to prefer money in paradise over money on earth.
Although she was unsure whether she would be assured of a place in paradise in the next part of her life, she believed that it was a test of one’s faith, and that it was therefore necessary to conquer some earthly temptations.

“All you have to do is mix and match till you appear presentable.” When you look acceptable in inexpensive clothing, you can appear to be more costly. So it all comes down to how you present yourself,” she explained.
