I just finished my first year of University in Glasgow and will likley have to finish my studies at home in Bordeaux.
It's just that living costs here in the UK are insanley high, and the fairly weak euro doesn't help. Now that my mother has lost her job, my parents simply can't support me anymore.
I met my boyfriend actually on the very first day here in Glasgow. We've been dating for 9 months and he asked me to marry him.
I said yes at first, but now I'm not sure anymore. 9 months isn't a lot of time. And the thing is his parents are rich and he is making good money too. He often offered to help me out financially, but I can't have him pay for me.
Yesterday he said "you know what's great? After we're married you won't have to worry about money anymore. What's mine is yours then"
I know it sounds cute, but thinking about it, what if he only asked me to marry him for that? or even if it was just a big factor
Would it be a good idea to get married still?

It does sound like that.
Marriage is supposed to be about spiritual unity first and foremost. If there isn't that, then all the other things will become superfluous over time. Such a love will never mature, and will be hard to hold together. See if you can cultivate that in him. If not, then the engagement may have been a mistake.
Marriage is to be a sacred calling; not a personal "right." If more understood that, then a lot of the current political bickering happening in the US would find itself completely foundationless.0
