    Unhappy the secret of/to/for

    She decided to ask him the secret of a happy old age.
    What is your secret for being so happy at your age?
    The secret to making money online is not complicated.
    What’s the difference between the usages of “the secret of”, “the secret for” and “the secret to”? When do we use “of”, “for” or “to” after the word “secret”?

    There is no secret. It depends on the situation. That's all.
