I've lived in a situation where we had plenty of money but the relationship itself was bad so there was little happiness. I left that relationship finally and struck out on my own, with less money but with definitely more peace of mind and my new home was a happy one. Now I'm married to someone I have a good relationship with and we're okay financially but, if the money was gone tomorrow, that would matter less to me than if my husband was gone and the money was still there.

For a simple person like me, it will be happy family.. ^_^ If a family is happy, no matter rich or poor, as long as quality time are spent together and sharing of both good and bad times, the family will always be together and will cherish everyhting even more.. As for money, money can upset the whole family as well as giving a family a good life.. But when it comes to end of the day, money will still be the cause of all problems.. Thus, happy family is much more important in life ^_^

Welll, I believe that a happy family is much more important in life,but we have to have money. It seems as though our lives have to revolve around money. I wish it wasn't that way,but it is. I guess I have to say that I would rather have a happy family though.

Hi successlog! My family is much more precious to me. But I wouldn't discount the fact that money is also important in my life in order to achieve happiness within the family. I have experienced both, having much money and having so much less. Money whether we admit it or not is essential to achieve that happiness and completeness within the family. When my family have much money before, everything is in place. We have food on the table, we were sent to good school, we were able to be treated properly by doctors when we were sick, we were able to put proper clothes in our bodies and we thank God for the blessings we have. We did have problems but we were able to solve them with not so much worries and anxiety. Now, that we have much less, I could see my family trying so hard to get through with the struggles of living with what we only have. Less food and sometimes we do skip meals. We have a happy family but the struggles have lessened the smiles in the faces of my loved ones. We all tried not to be burden to each other and not to add more worries and anxiety. Everyone in our family do not complain of what we have less for we tried to be happy despite of the trials. But how can I be happy when some of the members in my family are sick and I can't or we can't have them treated in the hospital? How can someone be happy when they have no food to prepare on the table? As I said my family is more precious to me and I can live without money as long as my family is happy but how can a family achieve happiness without having to worry about money? We can't deny that money is very much essential in this world that we live in so we can achieve complete happiness. I am not saying money is the most important one to achieve a happy family life but it is an important factor to have. But if I have to choose to give up what money I have left to have a happy family, I will be choosing the happy family in my life. But will wonder, where will I get the money in order to survive? Just my thoughts dear. Take care and God Bless!

Happy family... Ahh... That is really nice. It is like a precious thing in the society, if there is a country full of happiness, there is no problem if they have no money, low economy, or a lot of taxes, they have the force of the life with them.

As a human being, i prefer family than money. because if you have money you can never buy a family. Right? I think you know the answer. If you have a happiness family, you will be happy all the time when you working. Its important that the attitude when you working. The good attitude come from where? A happy family or money? Its family right? So, i strongly mention that FAMILY is important than MONEY. Best Wishes For You!^^

money is important but love of the family is more important.. yeah they're filthy rich but they're lack of love, when they have lots of money sometimes our family just ignore them coz they are so busy to put up money.. unlike on the poor people, yeah they don't have enough money & let's face it, but they are rich in love of the family.. i will prefer happy family than to have lots of money but still im lonely...

Wow....this is a tough one. Honestly, I think a happy family is more important because money comes and goes. I mean dont get me wrong, money makes me very happy personally but just because I have it doesnt mean that I am happy with life. It just means that I can buy whatever I want but once you have everything, what is left? Nothing! Having a happy family is priceless. They are a support system when you are weak. They provide laughter in a time of sadness. They are reliable when you are helpless. They are there whenever you need them. They are more dependable. You cant buy a happy family. You can buy your family things with money that will make them happy but that is completly different from having a happy family.

Money can buy a toys, clothes, and food BUT not the smiles in our faces, the laughter we make when we are happy and the fullness we feel when we are together. Money can buy an apartment, a building, a condominium...in short a house BUT not a home. A house without a family is not a home. Family is definitely more important than money. Take care

Without hesitation .. A happy family is more WAY more important. What good is money if your not happy?? Money cant and dont buy true happiness. I have a loving family and that is way more important to me.

Hi successlog Happy family is definately number 1 priority. It is priceless. You cannot buy happiness with any amount of money. On the contrary money can be the root of all kinds of problems. I neither wish to be too poor or too rich. As the Bible tells us if you are too poor you might sin against God and if you are too rich you may forget about God. I thank God He has given me the balance - sufficent to meet my family daily needs. I have heard so many sad stories simply because of money. Family members divided not because of lack of money but greed for money. What is your opinion on this? Take care

A happy family is very important especially if you can lean on and count on each other through the good and bad times. Yes, money is always nice but it might be fleeting and can go at anytime. Your family is there all the time and hopefully it is a good experience for you. I have had my ups and downs within family but when it really gets down to it there are alot more important things than money.

As they say, money can't buy happiness. Yes money can buy all the things that you wanted to have but it can never buy your happiness. To have all the luxury in life because of money do entail happiness which I think is just temporary. I think that it is worth to note that real happiness can be found in having a happy family. Furthermore, it is important to find this happiness within the family first for this happiness serves as your motivation and inspiration to achieve the dreams you desire for yourself and your family.

There is some conflict here in this question, because happy family should have money too they cant be happy without money. So my answer is the most important is the family but we should have in our consider that the money is important too to make this family happy. Have a good day.

As a happy family that has barely enough money to keep us going, I would still say a happy family is more important than anything else. When a family is happy, they can keep each other going in times of periods of having little extra money to do things that cost money. When we spend money (sometimes whether or not we can afford to, it is not on frivolous "things" It is money spent doing things as a family that help keep us happy, going to a theme park (we have passes so the only money spent that day is about 30 buck for lunch) treating ourselves to a nice dinner.. etc We do a LOT of things together (the teenagers love going with us) So that keeps us happy.
