  • i have done poor for 31yr and i am not happy to live with out to say no to your kids ,
    to have more money better life for my kids not worrying about the bills yes in your eyes i would be miserable
    but in my eyes i would be safe i wouldn't have to worry living on the streets with my kids ,that fear is realty .when you become a parent we worry enough ,we move heaven and earth for our kids to have better life

  • I couldn't be happy being poor, so I'm not sure where I would fit it. I can't imagine the stress of constantly worrying about putting food on the table, or paying rent, or living in an unsafe neighborhood, especially with children.

    I wouldn't want to be miserable, but at least I wouldn't worry about providing for my children, and getting the new audi convertible that I want would at least make me a little happy :)
