    For me it does. Money drives me. Money makes me do things, makes me get up and go to work, makes me sacrifice my soul and sanity for a future with plenty of money.

    Having a lot money doesn't guarantee happiness, but it makes it a hell of a lot more likely.

    Plus, the more money you have, the more options you have.

    Thats how I see it. What if my heart yearns to see other worldly places? If I have plenty of money, and more importantly money invested into systems that produce dividends, then I can go see whatever country I want to. Money is freedom.

    Money buys health. You do not need a lot, however you do need enough so you do not worry about financial issues; so you can buy quality foods (not fast food or junk food cause it is cheaper); so you can afford to seek medical attention if needed; buy meds if needed; etc. Happiness comes from within.

    That's my number one reason for wanting to be rich: to travel.

    I'm assuming that by talking about going to "other worldly places", that we're talking about planes and not quality acid.

    I'm going to make my bid for upper class in about 9-12 months.

    I agree it allows you more choices and to an extent freedom to to things. However, that is not happieness.

    Happy is more likely with money.

    Trust me, I'd know.

    Yes.

    Misery comes from poverty.

    Most marital issues arise from a lack of funds.

    Live without money then say money doesn't buy happiness. You can fuck it all up with little effort, but then you can just relocate and start over again. Unless you're broke ... then you are stuck a broke assed bitch in what ever shit hole you were dropped into.
