    Marriage. It doesn't matter how much money you've got, if you've got no one to share it with. ffs

    Marriage. Or at least a strong ,long term relationship as if I was married. Which sadly I never was. What's the point of having all the money in the world if you come home to an empty house? Or if you have no husband/partner/children to leave your money to? I don't have a husband or partner. But I have my 19 year old son. That's good enough for me.

    career. A successful career can take you all over the world, and you get to experience a multitude of exciting things. Marriage is an after thought for me.

    You mean to say there are successful marriages without the support of a successful career, or at least a reasonable promise of one?
    Ofc there are. Happiness isnt dependent on large amounts of money.
    I know families on modest incomes whi are perfectly happy as well as ones with great wealth which are miserable.

    Exactly, I may not have a job, but at least i have a wife to look after me. And together we have our child, we can invest in. Sure i get it that for some men, money is really the most important thing in the world, just it's not for me. That doesn't make me any less of a man, just that i have different priorities. Actually i place my family at the peak of my asset base to be honest with you. Which i think is a trait i share with most others with a family, rich and poor alike. I'd much rather be poor with a family, than rich with a good job, but no one to share it with!??!

    I would say marriage; I think that (in my case) having a nice and reliable husband would be so calming and reassuring. Also it depends what you mean by successful career as much as I'd like to be a millionaire it's not essential to my happiness. As long as I had a job I liked then it would be fine.
