For the past 50+ years, I’ve been fortunate to have an amazing work/life balance. I have a successful career in the finance industry, a nice house, a nice car, and a great wife. Plus, I work for a major insurance company. Now I’m starting to wonder if all that is really necessary for a relationship and marriage to work.
I recently talked to a friend who was recently laid off and he didn’t know what to do. He’s in his 30’s and with his savings of $70k, he seems to be pretty much broke and his wife just quit her job. He couldn’t afford to pay his mortgage, car insurance, or any other bills on his own. I’ve had some interesting discussions with my friends who are in the same boat.
A lot of people work for major insurance companies. They have a lot more responsibilities than most of us do. I have also talked to some people who have left their jobs after trying to find a new one and ended up falling into a trap that didn’t work out. They were always told to go back to work, but they got burned.
People who quit their jobs because they couldn’t afford to pay their bills are a little different from people who quit because of a romantic relationship. They don’t go nuts and try and break things off because they’re fed up with the situation. They just don’t have the guts to go off and get an apartment or a car or a real job and try to make the most of their lives.
If you don’t have the money to give your partner a ring, then you shouldn’t be in a relationship. And if you don’t have the money to give your partner a new apartment, then you shouldn’t be in a relationship. And if you don’t have the money to give your partner a car, then you shouldn’t be in a relationship.
And if you don’t have the money to give your partner a new apartment, then you shouldn’t be in a relationship. And if you don’t have the money to give your partner a new car, then you shouldn’t be in a relationship.
When you’re in a relationship, your partner is “giving you a ring.” Not buying you a gift. It’s your turn to give her a ring, but her ring is not the same thing as your ring. So you shouldn’t be her partner. If you need to buy her a ring, then buy her a gift or not. You should be her boyfriend. And if you need to buy her a car, then buy her one.
It’s important to remember that your relationship with your partner doesn’t have to be about how much money you’re putting into a relationship. It doesn’t have to be about how well you get along with each other. In fact, your relationship with your partner can be a way to be more financially self-sufficient. This is because you are investing in your relationship, not just the relationship with her.
This one is really easy. Do you really want to make her rich? Then don’t. Don’t expect your ex-girlfriend to go on a shopping spree when you suddenly realize you need money. If she’s rich, she’s not going to go in a million different directions. She will invest in the relationship in ways that you wouldn’t.
