I have a cousin who is in a de facto marriage with a "rock star". They have enough money to buy a nice terraced house and drive a new VW. They're waiting on their second kid. When I visited them my cousin was embarrased about her oversized bath-tub. "It's more opulent than the catalogue suggested" she proclaimed. They live modestly, through choice. I'm not sure I would be comfortable splashing my wealth around either, knowing the poverty many others endure. My cousin is left wing politically, as am I. If I had $10 million I wouldn't have a clue what to do with 90% of it...give it to some cause I suppose, some charity...but which one? RDFRS? I'd have real difficulty spending it on myself, or my relatively wealthy circle.
