DB Marketing and Finance

As you know, my partner and I struggle some with the same issues. My partner was similarly deciding that it was all too much so why bother. But, she totally trusts me, or at least she says that she does. We have been making progress lately. We are not there yet either, but we’ve decided that any budget needs to take into account things that both of us value. Maybe DH doesn’t feel that he has a say over the budget and making him feel like what he values can be included might be a good start.
For example, it bugs me that my partner eats out once a week with her coworkers, but she feels that it is important working bonding time. So, deciding ways to minimize that cost might be a better approach than just cutting it out.
Anyway, we are still working on coming up with a workable budget. It’s a work in progress, but I have faith that we’ll get there.
Keep up with the topic during the counseling sessions and hopefully you’ll see the same thing start to happen. After all, as much as you want to be debt free, it will feel so much better knowing that you did it together.
