It's funny--more often than not when someone says money can't buy you happiness, they have money.
Seriously, having money solves so many of our day to day battles. I'm not talking about luxury living, but having enough to have a home, for medical insurance, for necessities. When those issues are taken care of, I am more content, and more likely to be happy.
It may not buy happiness but it solves a lot of problems and it one has money and they are still not happy--they can afford a really good therapist to deal with that.
Money cannot buy you happiness. That being said, a lack of money can cause misery. I have heard that 75k per year gives the average family enough money to live without worry. Past that amount, money will not provide happiness.
Depends on your idea of happiness... If being in love means being happy, then no, obviously it can't. If owning a bunch of super-rad things, and never having to worry about making ends meet is your idea of happiness, then yeah it could...
Money can't buy you happiness directly, but it can buy you things or fund events that can bring you happiness.
I think money might have a better chance of buying one love rather than happiness. Happiness comes from within. First you have to love yourself then...
Money.. buys things and stuff. whether or not those things and stuff gives you long lasting happiness is entirely dependant on your own personal values system...
I agree with almost everything everyone said.
As I'm finding it hard at this time to pay my rent and buy food I can definately say that not having money causes mega stress and unhappyness.
I would love to have enough money to buy a home and not have to worry about whether I will be able to afford to eat this week. so yes money would make me very happy.
I can also state I would never be with anyone because they had money. Love is the only reason to be with anyone. Though it would be nice to have some financial security
Sorry for answering with a question but "can one be happy without love"?
If not, I would say no, money can't buy you happiness.
Money can buy you happiness. A child with few cents can buy a cup of ice cream and is happy. You save some amount of money to buy anything you want- a new dress, a new pair of shoes, a piece of jewelry, a new car- and an endless list of things that make you happy.
And who says money can't buy love? In not so many occasions, some good men with lots of money take a life's partner(mostly arranged by parents), and with sincere nurturing love blossoms between the two. A near fairy tale story but it happens.
absolutely. only the poor would think it couldn't. i'm not rich but i know that money has bought happiness many times in my life and it will continue to do so. when i bought my boat , our family went out for a 3 days boating trip on the great lakes and we had a great time.
There was a song (still is) and sometimes we quote it to each other when we joke with friends (it is in Russian), so it goes roughly
Press a button
You'll get a result (in a sense you will get what you wanted)
And your dream will come true
Why are you not happy?
There is nothing you can dream of....
Happiness... This question has been answered so many times. To cover your basic needs you need money, but when you get enough money and get things that you wanted - then you come to the point when money/things don't make you happy.
You need connection with others, friendship, love, acceptance, belonging, contribution.
The idea that self-actualization is happiness. Nobody can buy self-actualization.
I might be wrong, yet I don't think that too many people get to that point. Instead they settle and then delude themselves that EVERYTHING IS FINE. But they overindulge, why people are lonely? Are those unhappy people have no money? You tell me.
Money Can’t Buy Love. At least not true love in my opinion true love is not for sale, not for any price. It is the deepest of human connections and is invaluable. However, money can be an instrument to show your love for another. You can give money freely to those in need, without expectation of repayment. You can use money to provide shelter for those you love.
Money can’t buy happiness; spending money in an effort to influence our own emotions just doesn’t work because dollar bills are just band-aids. We have to identify the real reasons we are sad and do what we can, within our power, to turn those emotions around.
I think it can...What you can do with money is...
1. Swim with dolphins....That shoulds like a blast, pure happiness if you ask me.
2. Sky diving
3. Swim with sharks.
Check out this page. It asks if money equates to happiness.

One can say i am happy because i bought my favorite new car and a house etc. Money gives you security and luxury but it can also ruins the true meaning of happiness you desire for more.
I dont believe money can buy happiness. Real happiness comes when you can become content with what you have and reallize you dont have to have everything to feel you have accomplished something. If you have a roof over your head, food on your table, and clothes on your back. You have plenty of reason to be happy.
Money cannot really buy happiness but it can sure make life more enjoyable and comfortable.
ofcause not??? Even if you possessed all the money of the whole world and you don't have your love near you, you can never be happy!!!! even if you are money minded!! there will be a stage in your life where you will feel this lack!!! so money cannot buy happiness!!!!

Money can't buy happiness. Agree?It is definitely better to cry in a BMW 7 series than to walk on the streets as there's no place to go.
