Dear Teachers,

1- She loves you for your money, not for love.

- Is this natural to say?

Thanks very much!

She loves you for your money is ok.
She doesn't love you for love doesn't sound at all natural - you wouldn't love someone for love either.

I agree. I would change the whole sentence to something like: "She doesn't love you, she loves your money".
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

What's wrong with the original? I don't get it.

Think of "for" as "because of"
She loves you because of your money. That makes sense. It's like "She admires you for your strength" or "She hates you for your faults".

She loves you because of love. That doesn't make sense. It's as strange as "She admires you because of admiration." or "She hates you because of hatred".
