This paper discusses the question "is there a necessary connection between `being good' and being happy?" which might at first glance look fairly straightforward. However, in order to grasp the complexity of it, each of the important words in this sentence needs to be examined, i.e. Necessary, good, and happy. The paper shows that this is anything but a straightforward question and consequently, a simple answer is not possible. However, on balance, it argues that the answer to this question is no. The word "necessary" means essential or requisite.
