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.

I agree! Money can only make you happy upto a certain point.

I think it depends on the person. I am earning beyond the threshold but I feel I will be happier if I earn more. I can buy more things and travel more.

Yes money can make you only happy at certain points but not all the time.

I don't know about other people but more money would mean I'd have a more comfortable life. Less worrying and stress for me.

I don't think your happiness is tied to your income. I have seen people who have almost nothing but seems happier than I am.

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.
You have a point. I think it changes depending on where you are in your life.
