My Sister in Law said my wife was marrying me for my money so by the time we got married I was broke. Gave it all away.

I'm fairly well fixed financially but grew up poor in a one parent home. I started working when I was in grade school and learned to squeeze a nickel. 
Now that I'm retired I spend a lot less than I used to and I didn't spend much then. My wife shops at thrift stores and won't buy anything that's not on sale.

My kids, on the other hand, all have big screen TVs, i-phones, fancy cars, etc. but they are always broke. They never want to wait and save for a big-ticket item, just put it on the credit card.

My kids and their spouses fight all the time and my wife and I haven't had a real fight in over 15 years. 
So, money isn't the problem. Living within your means is.

Sounds as though he's trying to tell her what to do with the money.  Serious, bad mistake.  It's HER money, and if she wants to piss it away on worthless kids, that's her problem and has nothing to do with them as a couple.

My wife and her sisters inherited a bit when a parent died, and my wife asked me what "we" should do with her share.  I suggested that she spend it all on jelly beans and load them into a dump truck, then back it out onto a pier and dump the load in the water to see how big a splash it would make.  She got all huffy for a moment, saying I just wasn't taking it seriously, so she wouldn't ask me again.  "Perfect!" sezz I.  She started laughing and all was forgiven.  She made her own decisions about the money and had a few wrangles with her sisters. But I backed her every step of the way, never questioning her decisions, and made her really happy with me in the process.

Turns out she's a darned good money manager and still has the money, making it grow along the way. Meanwhile her sisters have frittered away every cent they got.  I'd be on the fritter list too, truth be known.  But now she's got lots of confidence in herself and her decisions and I've got a very happy wife.  Who could ask for more?  That's better than anything I could have bought with the money.

I inherited a bunch of money once. Went through a Church to give to the poor. Found later the Pastor had paid off the Church with it. After that me and him didn't have the same relations and gave me a sour taste about the Church as beliefs.

Most big charities spend 35%-60% on advertising, salaries, and fancy desks etc. I never donate to them. I try to find someone locally who had something bad happen and give the donation to them. 
I don't trust organized religions. Some of them drink blue Kool-Aid.

My wife will be inheriting a good pile over the next 3 years, her money and she is an excellent manager, I am not. There won't be any fights about it and she will be financially independent of me so win all round.

I was the foreman for a small farm equipment shop in Arvada Colorado in the late 60's, for extra money I would make the 4AM run to Purina Mills in Denver to get 2-3 tons of feed each day and be back in time to open up. 

A loading dock friend (Scotty) would always have a story about his new wife (been married a half dozen times - min.). He comes over to me at the loading desk and says "Buck, this new wife may not work out brother. Sent her to the store and she came back with 4 bottles of gin, 2 cases of beer and a dozen donuts". I'm just staring at him then he says "What the hell are we going to do with all those donuts". The desk clerk went nuts and I couldn't stop laughing like everyone that heard him, crazy times at Purina Mills.

Ok I know a couple that is married mainly for money.

Their Son the other night went to a Club and found his Dad there dancing with another woman.

I said something to my wife. She told me the way it is they have to depend on each others income to pay the Bills, so they live this way. Just sad.
