I would not say u're right or wrong.But u say money is a way to reach happiness?Perhaps,however...happiness can be achieve without money right?Money is not everything is this world.

It might not be able to buy happiness but it can buy peace of mind. Knowing that you have enough money to pay bills and wont lose your house would be a big relief to many people. Money might not bring happiness but you can be miserable in comfort.

I agreed with what u thinks.However,paying bills shud be well manage under your budget once u start working or earning money.So your point is money helps u reduces stress or financial matters.

Money alone cannot buy happiness. But it can buy security, and security frees you up to enjoy the world around you more. Money can help to smooth your passage through life, but it comes with it's own responsibilities too. Not all of it's responsbilities are pleasant ones either. Lack of money brings worry and hardship. Money itself can bring discontent. They say that the best things in life are free, and that is certainly true. Hugs, laughter, sunsets and good friends all cost nothing. So maybe we should concentrate our efforts on enjoying ourself for free rather than trying to buy our way to contentment.

To answer the question,first you should know what happiness really means to you?I think when we got something we need and we want,then we feel happy.Things like love,rights,respect or material things.So the question depends on what you need and you think can bring you happiness.

Absolutely not!Money can lead to a happy life,but it is not necessary.Maybe people can not buy something he want without money,but one can live happily without it.

HI, I hope it depends upon the person who view and use his money. Moreover it is the mental peace and mental happiness that brings more happiness. There was a time before the invention of money and hope people know the feeling of happiness too. Money do need to buy priced happiness. But the real happiness cannot be valued or priced, hence I feel money has limited role in giving happiness.

Money can provide some sort of happiness as money answers everything here on earth but that happiness is not lasting but still we can call that happiness I think. The poor can still be happy even without money and in fact there are many poor who are happy.
