great but relationships are more important; 31% won't sacrifice eating out.

Yeah, it's never about the money.  Relationship, happiness, peace, integrity, time, and most crucially, health, are all more important than money.

It is a balance; although money can be a problem if one has too little, never be enslaved by money!

Health is my topper also.  How can you enjoy any of the things money can buy if you aren't in good health?

By the same token, IF one happens to have a good deal of money it can afford one to buy the best healthcare so you just might live longer because of having money.  Poor people don't always get the best healthcare or the latest in new healthcare treatments.
