Things are just things. I've seen people lose it ALL in one day and end up divorcing. Screw that.
If you're always wanting bigger and better, your focus and priorities are out of whack. You probably work longer, and harder, taking time from each other just for money...for things.
I'd like to get rid of more things. Live a simple life. Less bills, less stress.
That's exactly how we conduct or marriage (and conducted our relationship before that). Money has never been a major issue for us, whether we had it or not. There have been periods when she had more, periods where I had more, and it all works out.
Money just isn't worth letting get in the way of you and your soulmate's relationship. Sadly, a lot of people let their marriages fall prey to financial woes.
