​pmsl depends on who u spend time with

Honest thoughtful reminder especially at this time of year - HUKD members will be proud of you!

Money can always be replaced. But, you cannot buy more time.
Many happy thoughts your way and enjoy the time with your loved ones. Merry Christmas

Echo the sentiment

Took 3 tins of Cadbury's Celebrations to the A&E, the ambulance and local fire station to wish them a Happy Christmas a safe New Year and to show them that some people appreciate the efforts they make.

Couldn't be a*sed with the local police because all they do is give poor excuses or pass the buck

Currently being neighbourly security guard (checking letter box and security of property) whilst they are away

Catching mobile phone users whilst driving on my helmet cam (uploading and/or reporting) to improve road safety when I can - also (probably because of my age) I've started twitching - no not birds (the feathered type) but curtain twitching but haven't spotted any wrongdoers << they must know I have a specific set of skills

No I don't need a gold star/medal - it just shows how easy it is to help

Have a good un

What an interesting perspective, certainly got me questioning myself for a second.

I disagree. Money can only be replaced if you have enough time left. Morbid, but true.

Bah humbug. Time is overrated.

Mmmm probably.

I can assure you no one has ever thought MSK = Time + Money. So I am modifying your formula.

Girls != MSK = Evil.

But... I probably am evil for other reasons, so maybe I should let that slide X)

Either that or Fanpages (internet nerds + comedy algebra) = sexist.

so how is living on the street naked without a possession to your name coming along?

or are you another hypocrite, that actually values their material possessions over anything else.

I think the op was talking metaphorically. That, as long as you have the minimum income to have a comfortable living, then more money is not as important as love and memory.

It is false to bluntly state that money does not matter in life as it definately blooming does. Having money bring you a comfortable living, relieve stress as you dont have to worry about earning a living, allow you to care for those who have less money than you that you love.

However, it is also true that to a certain extent, all the money in the world on its own will never make you happy if you dont have people in your love that you love and who love you. I know because i am fortunate enough to have more money than i can spend but i would be very miserable without love, even with all the money.

I agree. I have made a lot of money within a short span of time. However, if i lost it all now, even though i am still very young, i would doubt if i could make it all again even if i had twice or three times the time to do so.

I find that making money, and i am talking about serious money, not your 9 to 5 salary, even in a high paid job, is all about opportunity and it does not come to everyone and even if it does come to you, it may only come once and never again. Destiny is what it is all about. Being in the right place and at the right time. Or in my case, meeting the right person who directed me to the right opportunities.

I can confirm that a divorce will do that almost immediately

However, when wiser on the second (or subsequent) occasion, the potential to earn the same, if not more, income again is greater due to the previous experience(s) gained.

Retaining the money you have amassed, or using it to the best advantage, is a consideration that cannot be dismissed lightly, of course.

"Sonne, think not thy monie purse bottom to burn,
but keepe it for profite, to serue thine owne turn
A foole and his monie be soone at debate,
which after with sorrow repents him too late."

You are right to a certain degree. Some people are born into wealth. Others may be blessed with the desire &/or intelligence to change their own future. Some gain an advantage later in life due to circumstances outside of their control; more often good luck, rather than planned management. A majority may never be aware of any opportunities other than the normal progression of their chosen path.

Have you passed on the same opportunity to somebody else now that you have the experience to do so?

​i think its easy to understand what i mean.. i said it in terms of giving gifts... not your actual life... of course everyone needs basics... I mean instead of stressing over how much you need to spend on a/b/c spend time with them more if possible as that's what is more important x

Depends on who is the richer partner in the marriage. I agree that often men will lose most of their money on divorce. For me, technically speaking i could end up richer on divorce as i actually married money and so i could claim half of my OH's wealth on divorce as they have even more money than i do. However, i would never do this as i dont think it is right to take someone else's money, especially now that i have plenty of my own.

Being a mathematician, i have all the figures worked out Half of their wealth far surpasses half of mine.

Dont get me wrong. I am not a money grabbing so and so. I wasnt actually looking to marry someone rich. I just happened to have met someone rich. When i met my OH, although i had more money than the average person, i was by no means rich. My OH was the rich one and showed me how to make money of my own.

My OH being rich was very concerned that someone would marry them for their money but they trusted that i was not at all like this.

What a mathematician surmises, & what the legal proceedings in a matrimonial split determine to be a fair representation of each partner's earnings, may be completely different, of course.

Just out of interest, how much money did "the average person" have when you married?

I am just curious how this compares with my own circumstances (albeit that I did not remarry).

Very true about the law of divorce. Having never been through a divorce i have no idea how assets are split but i am aware that the man often loses out and certainly the richer partner is the one at risk.

We keep our money separate and we had a verbal agreement that we would not ask for each other's assets if we were to end up in the divorce courts. Of course i was very happy to agree to this when we got married as i was not the partner at risk here by any method of measurement.

I am uncertain how much the average person had when i got married but i knew i had more than the average person as everyone my age would be paying off a 25 years mortgage, whereas i owned a huge property in london outright. I also had about 200k in the bank.

However, in comparison, my OH had millions as they owned several properties in London outright. Had a fat bank account, a profitable horce racing business and was earning a high salary from a professional job.

But i must stress that was not why i married them, because they were rich. I fell in love with them and wanted to be with them.

Shame you missed out the police. Its a thankless job and everybody is always quick to criticise. They deal with the good, bad and the ugly of our society 24x7. I couldn't do it any better and appreciate those who are in the front line.

Don't post in a misc sub-forum that is open for discussion then.

My criticisms have always been justified especially as numerous of your posts/comments reek of smugness as in post #36.

If you don't want to see what I post then place me on ignore. Frankly, I find some of your posts irritating but not enough to start crying real tears about it and put you on ignore.
