nooo, there actually is a term for money rich guys give to their girlfriends if she's been dependent on him for a while... even if not married. the japanese courts enforced it once and it was a big deal.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
