    Everyone there lives happy/happily

    Everyone there lives happy/happily.

    Are both the adjective and the adverb fine for this sentence?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: Everyone there lives happy/happily

    If you want to describe how they live, it's "happily."
    You could say "Everyone who lives there is happy." But it's not quite the same thing.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
