My biggest takeaway – and it was something I already knew – was that more money doesn’t equate to (much) more happiness. If you freeze the chart at 3:21, you’ll see for yourself.

But the most important message is that committed, long-term love — a pair bond that lasts forever — is about the greatest ticket to happiness known to mankind. Dogs are great. Friends are cool. Travel is a fun, temporary high. But if you want a long happy life, choose a great partner to share the ride.
Have a great day, everybody.
