  • Agree, but it can give you peace of mind.

  • To an extent. I don't think that money alone can buy you happiness but it can make life a lot easier and thus relationships easier which is the true way to gain happiness. Lack of money puts lots of stress on a marriage, it can still be strong with that added stress but it is much harder.

  • It gets you closer. If you are one of those living from paycheck to paycheck. Money would sure make you happier. But money alone can't do it.

  • In general......NO! In certain aspects (regarding for example, what I want for my child/ren)........YES! But these are just guesses, I have never been wealthy. I did have a short period in my life where money was not an issue but I was young and dumb with no kids, if I had that money now I would do a whole lot different with it!!!!

  • It helps, LOL, but I don't think money ALONE will make you happy! You could have all the money in the world and STILL be miserable if you don't have anyone to share it with!

  • Maybe not, but it sure can make life easier. There's nothing worse than worrying and wondering about how to pay the next bill or buy food. That is not happiness!

  • It helps, but I believe you don't have ANYTHING if you don't have your health.
