Relationships : Could the woman or man you choose marry make or break you?

There are many young Haitian-Americans out there who believe they have found the love of their life. They end up marrying each other and the next thing you know, things go bad, each go their own separate ways and, financially, they are both in the whole and both blame each other for their misfortune.

Men vs Women - How are men and women different?

So I asked a question: Could the woman or man you choose to marry make or break you?

You want to save money, he wants to go party every weekend.

You want to put money away to buy "our first house", she wants to go shopping.

You think we can't afford this right now, he puts it on a credit card!

Sometimes you are in a relationship with someone and he/she is unable to make the tough life decision, especially financial decisions which can affect both people and the relationship.

At times your partner accuses you of being "controlling" when in reality you want what's best for both of us.

When was the last time you told your partner who is about to purchase a big doodad that we cannot afford it?

When was the last time our partner listened to you instead of turning it into a big agruement?

All of these are big decisions in relationships especially these days when living on a budget is so important.

Setting up a plan requires a team effort. Where we want to be in 5 years, in 10 years, in 20 years.

But what if you married someone who is a big spender or who doesn't care how much is put away for the future?

When will this relationship end up when one person wanst to save, the other wants so spend. One person wants to enjoy life to the fullest and the other believes in delayed gratification?

Let's talk about that?
