I can actually relate to this article. When I was younger, no one can stop me from working my butt off. When I reach the managerial level, I started to slow down. Eventually, I did part time and spent more time with my family. What made me happy changed after reaching a certain income level.

They say that greed has no limits so I don't agree with this article. I haven't been earning for a long time so I still want and need more. There's still too many things that I need to buy. Although honestly, that list of things to buy keeps on getting longer. Is it my greed or is it a necessity? I get confused.

I don't earn that much and I don't foresee earning that much in the near future so I don't know how that feels like. Money doesn't really make me happy but I really need it to survive. If I can live in a world where I can eat for free, I would probably be happier.

Let's be realistic here. We need money to make our lives comfortable. It'll be less worrying if I had enough money to pay off all my bills. I can also buy what I need and help out my family. So for me, the bigger money I get, the better.

I kinda agree because when you get more money, sometimes you get more problems so I do believe there is a magic number but not sure if those are the magic numbers.

I would need way more than those to be happy. It would make me happy if I had enough to live off the interest or passive income. I would be happy if I can live life not having to worry about work or money ever again.

Money problems have a ripple effect on your life. They can result in an overall sense of unhappiness, and they can create marital stress, making both spouses unhappy in the marriage. That stress can cause health issues and, even worse, it can negatively impact the lives of your children.

I can see why the study would think that but I think it depends on the person. There are some people who are driven by greed and no amount of money will ever be good enough.

I don't agree with this. Being rich creates an overall sense of happiness, improves your marital relationships, eliminates stress associated with money problems which improves your overall health and enables parents to give their kids a superior education and lays the foundation for success in life.

I think I would rather be rich and unhappy than to be happy and poor. Let's admit it though, are there really people who would turn down more money!?

I think most parents would agree that when their kids are doing well in life, it makes them happy, and when they are struggling in life, it makes them unhappy.

When someone says"money does not buy happiness," they're wrong. Being wealthy can increase happiness in many areas of life. Wealth and poverty have a domino effect on all aspects of your life, so if you improve your financial condition in life, you will increase happiness in other aspects of your life.

I can believe that what they say is true. I believe there is a saturation and a point where too much money can make you unhappy.

C'mon! That's a lie! I'd rather have that kind of problem! Money is money. It doesn't measure happiness if you are fulfilled in terms of your family and life in general.

I agree with this! You just need the basic to cover shelter, food and clothing and once this is met, the rest of your"happiness" would depend on intangibles like your relationships with others, job satisfaction and what not.
