This may take weeks, months, years or decades to manifest but it absolutely will happen sooner or later.
And we gave each other complete responsibility and freedom within our respective realms. My bride is anything but a spendthrift but she was more willing to open up the purse strings to enjoy life.
I was still living in a great deal of financial fear when I started my career.
It boils down to this: You should have the money conversation if marriage is where your relationship is headed.
It is stated as the number one reason why some relationships break up.

If one half of the relationship is unemployed, it puts the money conversation on the table.
There are some couples who never talk money before they tie the knot.
I can honestly tell you that I was way too tight for no good reason.
But we were both convinced that we were right and the other was being silly. Really listen and hear what the other was thinking and understand what they were feeling. So when I say that money is more important than love I’m really saying that a relationship is in jeopardy as long as money disagreements go unaddressed.
