Do you envy rich people?

Most people will probably say yes but....

What if I told you that...

-Very rich people are more likely to have loveless relationships. They tend not to pursue divorce because they lose a lot of money, so they stay in unhappy and empty relationships.

-They have a hard time making friends. Rich people can only become friends with people that are like them, which is only about 1% of the popluation.

-Wives of wealthy families tend to be considered secondary to their breadwinning husbands.

-Rich husbands tend not to spend a lot of time with their children.

I don't know about you, but it sounds a little depressing to me.

(This is all stuff that I have learned in class, so I don't have any statistics to show you)

  • No, I don't envy, but an extra $25K a year would be great.

  • Not even a little bit.

    Answer by motherofpearls at 3:48 PM on Oct. 7, 2010

  • No. I love my life just the way it is, though I wish we did have a little bit more money. I'd never want to be "rich" so they have nothing for me to envy.

  • Nope, I pity them


    Answer by bjojola at 3:46 PM on Oct. 7, 2010

  • Sometimes.

    Answer by evelynwest at 3:47 PM on Oct. 7, 2010

  • I do not. I work at a job that has wealthy clientele. These customers are usually rude and speak to associates as though they are 2nd rate. They usually are very grumpy & complain a lot. If we don't have what they're looking for, they are very sour and displeased & complain a lot. They have all the money in the worlds so why can't they just go somewhere else? It's not like driving down the road in their SUVs or 6 figure-priced sports cars are going to break their bank. I don't understand why some rich people are so unhappy and unpleasant. I hate dealing w/ these kind of customers. I just don't get it. And then we have customers who aren't as wealthy & they are the pleasant ones to work with. I just don't get it...

    I guess it's true that you can't buy happiness.

  • I would not wish to be rich, just to have enough to take care of my kids and make sure they are happy

    Answer by mama408 at 3:47 PM on Oct. 7, 2010

  • Right now, yes I do envy them. They have the money to pay their damn bills, which I don't. :(

    Answer by thatgirl70 at 3:48 PM on Oct. 7, 2010

  • Sometimes but I'm happy where I'm at.

    Answer by mommy_of_two388 at 3:51 PM on Oct. 7, 2010

  • Not at all.
