I wouldn't leave you for all the money in the world, because to me, you are worth more than money.

What does this wouldn't mean here? Does the speaker have a possibility of leaving?

For - in exchange for - The price of something.

I bought this watch for five dollars.


I will wash your car for ten dollars.
>>I will only pay you five dollars.
I wouldn't wash your car for five dollars. That is not enough money.

I wouldn't leave you for all the money in the world.

So, what is the imaginary offer, here?
Is it a good offer, a lot of money? Is the the highest 'price' you can imagine?
And is it accepted?
If you can't offer a higher price, can it ever happen?
Are they ever going to leave you?
