    Happiness only comes from within ones self. If it could be bought for a dollar amount, then this would be truly sad. Having money just makes life financially easier.

    I agree with FirestarterFL. Financial and intellectual equality seems to bring happiness and understanding, but there also has to be a common goal for the relationship to last.

    Money doesn't buy happiness by any means. My ex is very wealthy man but he was very pessimistic. He never had fighting chance to enjoy his life because most of it was spent guarding his assets.

    In my opinion most affluent people are sad because they can't reap the benefits of all their hard work. They search their whole lives trying to find true love.

    Money doesn't buy happiness but it does give you time to breath when you are feeling down. If a person without means is depressed, they still must get up and go to work and find a balance. You have to keep a brave face even when you want to cry in your pillow all day long.

    If your depressed and have the means, lots of means,¿ you can just get on a plane and go somewhere to hide the pain you are feeling. It doesn't solve anything but it sure masks the hurt until you are over it.

    In the end, who is better off is the real question!

    Because as your wealth increases due to your hard work and efforts, the "distance" between you and your immediate geographic social group tends to increase. With the best will in the world, financial and educational differences seem always to cause friction in a relationship - At the beginning, the more wealthy, more¿intellectual¿¿of the two always finds themselves "carrying" their partner. This is the basis of the trophy wife/husband. The more powerful partner gets the physical benefits of a younger, more beautiful partner, and sacrifices the ability to have a good conversation and really be in a partnership of equals.¿

    Rich people with¿trophy¿partners seem to have a lot of affairs, ¿whereas¿people in relationships of equality seem much more stable.¿

    A little off topic I guess but that's my thought. I'd rather date someone cleverer and "richer" than I - the challenge is delicious.¿

    No money doesn't buy happiness, but it can make your life less worry some and enjoyable. Only unconditional love can make your life happy. It is better to share the failures with someone you love, than share your achievements alone.
