  • For us, yes, I do... we have a good marriage and healthy kids. Good friends. We both work, we both struggle, we have no time. Money would make us happy by giving us TIME...material things wouldn't make us happy, but paying the bills no problem every month and not having to work our butts off all the time would most certainly give us more happiness.

  • If it buys Prozac. lol. No really I agree with the above poster other than right now money would take away a lot of stress from bill paying making our marriage better and give us more time to be together. We work all the time at opposite times so we never see each other and when we do we argue about money and what bills to pay as opposed to which bills to put off.

  • I believe that you can buy something that makes you happy but money doesn't buy happiness. I believe it can keep you happy because financial issues are usually one of the biggest issues in relationships. Money does have a lot of influence but whether people are truly happy or not is not based on money.

  • Not true happiness. Love makes the world go 'round, money just greases the wheels!!

  • No, true happiness comes from within. If you can't be happy without money, you won't be happy with it.
