Couple holding hands


  1. Excellent advice…not always easy to follow but as long as you keep working at it – you’ll get there. It took my husband and I a few years to learn this (luckily with no major financial issues) but after 49 years of marriage we’re old pros at it. I think the best thing we ever learned (and followed) was to go into retirement as debt free as humanly possible because when you’re on a fixed income it can become difficult at times.

    1. I am amazed at the number of people who have huge amounts of debt, and don’t realize the impact of it on their relationship. It can cause so much despair and fear. It’s understandable in certain circumstances, but when it’s mostly about overspending for overspending’s sake, it is more like an addiction. Thanks for writing and I’m glad it hasn’t been an issue in your own marriage.
