Can money buy happiness?
It is not about the money in every marriage but you also can't live without the luxuries you deserve. Some married couples feel buying gifts for each other is the only way to keep a marriage together. Do you think buying something special for your partner on special occasions even after twenty years of marriage should be of great importance?
It depends upon the financial situation of the couple. Also, buying things for your partner is less important that the daily acts that are giving of one's time and love.
Can money buy happiness? Sure, if things make you happy. But true joy never comes from things.
Let me first answer your general question: "Can money buy happiness?"
My answers this question is: NO! ... However, you can buy a lot of expensive things that are very much appears as happiness.
Then lets's expand the general question to gifts/presents within a marriage: My answer to this situation is also NO! ... Something special for your partner isn't related to money (or the price tag). What is important is that your present is something that shows that you know and care for your spouse. So what is important is that you did an effort to find "the" present that shows your love. (It could even be a handmade (low cost) present).
Money is a tool and happiness is an emotion. You can't buy an emotion. However money can be used to distract one from other things they're (feeling). Some people get a little "high" out of shopping or receiving gifts.
If someone is not an affectionate/romantic or communicative person they may use money and gifts as a way to (express) their love.
Everyone has their own idea of what love should feel like or look like. The goal is to find someone who says or does the things that make (you feel loved) and vice versa. Everyone's needs are different.
Hi thank you and I understand your point here. Some people use money as more than the important tool.
I agree.. But money can only buy happiness for a moment and no moment last forever. Only love do even when this earth is melted away.. One thing still stands, is LOVE and that's forever in ones soul..
No, but it can insulate you against some of life's miseries, like hunger, homelessness, and illness.
Money can't buy happiness, but it can help! Especially if you are struggling financially (living paycheck to paycheck, can't afford to have fun aka go on vacation, can't afford to get sick/medical costs too expensive, etc). and need more money to live. Happiness is from within, materials things and people can HELP make you happy, but its doesn't causes you to be happy. All up to you, because happiness is choice and a state of mind.
For buying something special for your partner on special occasions even after twenty years of marriage is not of great importance to me. If anything investing and spending money on a trip/traveling/experience for the both of us is worth it (way better than expensive jewelry, clothes, etc.). You got to keep the passion alive, material things don't bring passion, but traveling, going out to eat, etc, exposes you to new things and experiences that can bring about passion!
Hi danicole, If money is needed for the extras like some vacation or in a poor standard of living. When one feels only money can make them happy that is certainly not the way to live a true happy life. Thank you
Yes that is so true! Happiness is from within, you must find your happiness, not look for it in others or in material things!!!!
NO money cannot buy or make anyone happy nor can the lack of money make or buy happiness for anyone. Happiness comes from within our hearts, it is not dependant upon external forces to exist. We are all responsible for our own happiness and although the correct amount and usage of money can make this process easier to come by, it (money) cannot make us happy.
Hi billys1 I believe in happiness from within though not everyone thinks that way. Some couples marry for money and find their happiness with gifts. Thank you
Hi DDE. it is a shame others think that way because it is one of the basic tenants in Psychology that I am responsible for myself all alone, not any other person. Thanks for answering though.
Spoken so well.. Money is the rule of all evil.. So if u are only marrying a person for money then that's were its bound to end up.. Because love should only and I mean only be the rule and intention be any and every marriage..
We on this earth need money to live and survival while here. Because in the kingdom of god we are all rich.. Not speaking of green dollars bills. That's earthly things in living control by the ruler of this earth here Satan to make it hard for the p
Yes, money can buy happiness. Money is the difference between having a decent, comfortable, or even a luxurious standard of living and struggling from day to day. Many marriages dissolve because of money issues. No right thinking couple can be happy when money issues are at the forefront of their lives. Marital problems-emotional, mental, psychological, and even physical occurs because of lack of money.
Poor couples are the ones who tend to abusive towards each other because of the socioeconomic difficulties and travails of making ends meet. That is NO way to conduct a marriage. That being stated, wealth has the ways of smoothing a marriage and making married life worthwhile. Wealthy or at least affluent couples can afford to treat themselves and each other e.g. romantic getaways to exotic locales, trips to fine restaurants, and other luxurious ways to express endearments. Money is very important in relationships and intelligent, educated couples know this. Intelligent, educated people date and marry smart. They realize how important socioeconomic standing is regarding relationships. They know that if the intended is not financially up to par and/or standard, they would not date the intended. Remember romance without finance is a nuisance...........Only naïve, uneducated people would date a person without considering the latter's financial standing.
But when u leave this earth along with Evey human one day.. All them Things that money brought you, u can't die with them nor take them with u when your soul depart from your fleshed body.We humans did'nt bring anything in this world, nor take out it
No money can not buy love well not true love and what it intends to be from God point.. Because if u get money for love then the only thing u are marrying is the monwy , not love. Because love is priceless a gift from God

Why do you think that there is still a popular belief that money can buy you happiness? This is despite the fact every month or so we learn that the rich and famous drown themselves in drugs, alcohol and even kill themselves in the process?
