Thanks for your thoughts
Hi Richard! It's my understanding that the two things people fight most about in a marriage are sex and money. I am not cheap by any stretch of the imagination; thus, I have often thought that I would need to marry someone who is a little more materialistic than myself. With that said, spending habits are just that! If a person is accustomed to living his or her life that way, it would cause serious concern for me. I refuse to fight, in almost any situation. So, for me, I would not choose to hitch my wagon to anyone who cannot control their spending habts. We are all subject to a "budget" - whether by choice or circumstance. Outspending our limits can have devastating results, in my opinion! Chelle
