Re: My wife is making my financial life miserable

I don't consider our spending to be extravagant but am cutting back on stuff and re-structuring how CC debt will be paid down because two student loans have no more grace period left.


Having been on both sides of the equation, I think it really comes down to discussing things and having a reasonable expectation about one's budget and spending habits. We're going to hit Duncan at least once/week, for example. I can't realistically say "Cutting out Duncan will make me get out of debt ten dollars a week faster!". Yes, it's technically true but ain't gonna ever happen. Smiley Happy
