Interesting article...

I found this article...actually, I don't remember how I found it. I was surfing somewhere. It's by Suze Orman, and she talks about how couples need to be on the same page in regards to finances:

Dh and I have been very lucky as usually, we are on the same page. Every once in a while, we differ on where the money should go (he thinks we need to buy another video card, I think we just bought one two years ago and why in the world does he need to play more games on the computer anyway...). But more often than not, we can keep each other on track.

He's usually really good about talking me out of going out to dinner. We still need to work on that, because I can be very unreasonable, and I know how to use his feelings against him - isn't that terrible? I manipulate him, I *know* I'm manipulating him - and yet I still do it. Good lord.

"They" say that half of all divorces are due to money problems. I'll bet it's more than that. But I can see how the stress could really get to you after awhile.

Well - I'm just babbling now. I'm off to find thrifty things to do!

haha, you're post made me laugh! especially the part about buying crap for the computer as my boyfriend does that all the time. somehow he thinks its reasonable to spend hundreds of dollars on some part for his computer just so he can play the newest video game. boys...what can we do with them? :)
