This is a question Conspicuous Consumption

Have you ever been photographed sat on a balcony eating a croissant; or wallowed in luxury just for the sake of it? What's the most ostentatious thing you ever seen or done?

I've had a pretty unlucky couple of years consisting of illness, lack of work, having to decide whether I should spend my money on my rent or my food, family troubles and having to cope with all the stress and depression that comes with this.
But through this time I have had one thing that has kept me going because it is actually the best thing anyone could wish for, and that is a happy relationship.
In fact, it's not just a happy relationship but one that is so awesome that it takes a lot of effort not to shove my smugness in everyone else’s faces. We are so deeply in love that if it were to be represented as a picture it would make people throw up from the sheer power of it. We are so unbelievably happy together that when I hear other supposedly "happy" couples complaining about their loved ones, it makes me feel all warm inside that no one else is as content as we are.
I don't have a lot and this is why I've decided to rub my awesome love in your faces and say "ner" because you might have money and cars and fancy fur coats but I've got a soul mate.

So there.

I initially replied with a tongue-in-cheek, satirical comment,
and would love to be dark and cynical and cool and moody and all that shit about this, but actually it's fab, so I'm going to click it.

Now fuck off and stop being such a hippy. There's a war on, don't you know.

this would be lovely
if I didn't know who you were talking about


seriously though, I'm in the same position with my other half. We're getting married in just over a month. I can't wait.

I did warn you that it would make you sick.
May your marriage be filled with fluffy candyfloss clouds and cute baby bunnies and other such things of sickening sweetness!

I've done some truly phenomenal and amazing things in my life
but I'm still jealous.

well said

Best answer so far, this qotw has too much "I'm considerably richer than yaw"

As the Beatles said

'Cause I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love

It can, however,
hire out some of the more energetic bits of it...

That's what...
poor people say 'til they sample luxury. If you can't buy happiness you can always just rent it.

Not comparable.
You can do these things whilst in a great relationship. You can also meet your "soulmate" faster if you have more money.
