    Is money / wealth important to you?

    Why or why not?

    Money can buy you the things you "want" in life. But, it cannot buy what you need. So, my answer would have to be no. It is not important to as long as I can provide for my family.

    Money is important for me in materialistic sense for the pure happiness for my family. Money without happiness is no worth. Thank you.

    Yes. It provides a home for my children, food for their belly, a car to get them to school, books for them to read, water to bathe in, beds for them to sleep in, and activities to entertain them. Money is very important to me. Without it we'd be homeless, carless, and hungry.

    It is important for my future and to give my children everything I want them to have. Otherwise, it's not important. For social status or fame, those are worthless to me. If I ever win the lottery or come into a ton of money, I won't tell anyone. Not even my husband how much we have. That wouldn't be difficult since I control the finances.

    Yes, it is insofar as it provides security against hard economic times, good healthcare, and the assurance my family will be cared for.  It is popular to say that money cannot buy happiness and surely it can't - but it can provide security and the ability to pursue good medical care which is huge.

    Being homeless for some reason is a huge fear for me so knowing I will always have a roof over my head would be one reason that money is important to me.  Being rich, or having an excess of money is not important to me - just having enough is what I want.

    It's important right now for my well being. I'm trying to afford my own place and until I move I feel a little like a prisoner. I want to avoid fighting with my parents so I don't go near them, I have a stash of food in my room, and I stay out of the house in the evenings as often as possible. I don't need or particularly want a huge amount of money, just enough to survive in my own place with a little bit of comfort.

    Yes, because of the life experiences and things it can afford me such as a home, travel, education, healthcare, the ability to be charitable, hobbies, etc. Being honest about it's importance doesn't mean that it's the only thing of importance to me, I'm just being honest.
