Re: Men, if you do *not* care how much money
Some would consider me careless because I was the one to push for a joint account, even before we were married.
I think the opposite, showing her that it was our money, regardless of how much she contributed financially. It helped build the trust quickly and allowed us to move forward fast.
Money is important, but it is not that important. Our freedom has always been very important and it included being free from debt. I did not want my family to become a slave to it.
So, we have a small house while many of my colleagues with similar income have much bigger ones. We have used cars.
But we invest in our kids' education which included a stay at home mom.
My wife's contribution to the marriage is far superior that way than if she had an income.
