I earn quite a handsome to sustain may family and afford them some of the good luxuries of life. There are some people out there who earn more than me. Sometimes, though my family don't say it over my face, feel bad about some stuffs that I cannot afford. Does making loads of money mean a happy family?

No, making loads of money doesn't mean a happy family. Money is not everything though I must admit that it is important in our everyday lives. You can earn plenty of dough but if you don't have time for your family then it won't make them happy though.

No money doesn't = happiness you can bring all the money to a family and it doesn't mean the family will be happy its the love and friendship in the family that I think matters most

Having money only helps with the needs in ones life, but it doesn't necessarily make for a happy family. The reason for my saying that, is you can have all the money in the world, and still not have a good family life for one reason or another. A lot think that if they could make a lot of money, they would be set for life, but that isn't necessarily so either. It seems the more a person has the more that they way, and that is just common with most people. So, really they could be wealthy by others standards, and yet they wouldn't feel that way, and they would want more. Sure, I wish I could have more too, but only to help me better financially. I just don't want so much that I would end up unhappy. I am happy for what I do make, even though is isn't a lot but it all adds up in the end. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

May not be, but making loads of money will avoid being a unhappy family, in many occasions. There are just a few things that money can't buy, which make the family happy. But, being poor brings all those unhappy things.

Nice question! I have an answer for that. Here's a quote from Angelo D' Amico: "Money is not the key to happiness. But the more money you have, the easier it is to get the key made."

Making loads of money may keep you happy being able to buy stuff but keeping the family happy in the sense of being happy spending time with each other is more important. I don't think money is important to make a family happy because we should be happy as a family without it if we really love each other.

No, i do not think so. But sincerely, more money can help us to get happiness easier. That doesn't mean you should earn more. But your family really need to fight together to pursuit better lives. It's not your own bussiness to feed your family but all your family menbers'. So i think you'd better learn how to manage your money and let your family members know that it is also their responsibilities to run a faimly. And you will feel much happier~~~~~

Making loads of money does not mean a happy family.Some rich people lead a unhappy life.Their family is unhappy in daily life.All of us think that the rich man can make her family happy,but the fact is except money,there are many kinds of other things to lead a happy family.

There can be two answers to your question. Ans 1. If you are making loads of money you will never fall in deep financial crisis or debt. In that way you will be happy as well as your family. Ans 2. If you are making loads of money with out being appreciated by yourself and your family members,then its a curse. In conclusion Without Money one cannot live happily up to my understanding. And finally nothing is certain answer in this ever changing world.People change, views change and opinions change.

Nope, Having a happy family is not all about money. Sometimes you just have to grateful, contented on what you have right now. Other families who have a lot of luxury are not happy on what they have because they are not all together. Some of families who just have enough money are still happy because they are all together at all times. Being happy is up to you. Also teach your children just to enjoy your life. If everything you are doing is not just enough teach them how to fetch some money.

Absolutely not! There are plenty of examples of both very unhappy rich families, and very rich unhappy individuals. So these things honestly have nothing to do with eachother!
