Over ten years ago, my husband and I found ourselves almost half a million in debt. We were like most couples, we had good jobs but were spending more than we made. We felt it was not a big deal. We could just make more money. We had a few credit cards, one car payment, medical debt from our third delivery, and a mortgage. Not terrible, or was it?
I was the nerd in our relationship and gladly took care of the finances. My husband was the free spirit. As you can imagine, I was not happy when he suggested a new financial system. All I heard was what a bad job I had done on our finances. We had some work ahead of us. #debt
