    marry money or marry into money?

    If a woman married into a wealthy family, we say 'she married money' or 'she married into money'? Thank you.

    In AmE, usually "married for money" or "married into money", but you will run across "married money".

    They all work, but I would consider "marry money" the least usual in Ame.l
