Is it a shallow person that is happier when there is more money?

It sure makes things easier but what does it say for the relationship itself between two people?

  • Not necessarily. When there are money problems or lack of money, there tends to be more stress which can affect a person's happiness. A shallow person will bail at the first sign of money problems.

  • More money = less stress
    Less stress = happy

    I think it's shallow to be WITH someone for money. But not shallow when things are going well financially and you enjoy it :)

  • I'm always happier when the bills are all paid and theres some money left over. Would be even happier if there was more money. lol But, in all seriousness, would you trade your family and what you have at home for money ? Wishing you had more money does not make you shallow. If that were the case we would all be shallow.

  • Yes.

  • Enjoying the security of money does not define being shallow, but if money is the basis for the relationship, yes that IS shallow. In the long run, that type of shallow does not bring happiness because there are so many factors besides money!

  • No, I feel more relaxed and easier to get along with when I know the bills are paid. If we had some money left over that would make me even less stressed. If everything is behind and we are both stressed out, then no one is happy.
