This.

Quoting nodramamama311:

I would be happier if we didn't have to struggle, worry about how we are going to pay upcoming bills. I'd be happier if we had a vehicle that didn't have a check engine light on all the time and leaked radiator fluid. Yes, if we had more money I'd be happier because the stress and worry would be gone. I don't need to be filthy rich and have tons of material things, just less worry.

no I do not think I would be happier. I am not the type to care about the material things. as long as I have enough for my needs. which I do. I don't need more. I am happy.

More money isn't going to make me happier.  It will just help us better make ends meet.

I would be perfectly happier if my husband got a raise that would cover what I make.  This then would allow me to be a stay at home mom and home school my LO

i believe we would be happier in the sense we wouldnt have to worry about having to pay bills and the extra problems that come up when we have to figure out how to get money together..
