Could you fall in love with and set up home with someone who has $100,000 (usd) in debt?
Money is always a contentious issue when it comes to relationships. Starting a relationship with significantly different levels of debt could cause issues, unless the debt is warranted, for example a HECS debt here in Australia for higher education is something that is paid off through taxation, so not really a huge burden versus say $100,000 of credit card debt with massive interest rates.
However, could I fall in love with and setup a home, for the right person I probably could, but they would need to fill a lot of my kink shoes.
Is it important for you to be the breadwinner or make more money than your significant other?
Do I want to earn more than my wife? No. I want my wife to earn as much as she is capable and comfortable as long as she enjoys what she does, and we are living within our means.
Are you happy with your chosen career path? What could be better?
What I do as a career is fine, the problem that I have is the office politics and all that goes along with it. I love learning new skills and knowledge about the career I have chosen. The only thing that could make it better would be removing the office politics that go along with it, (and deadlines of course).
Would you start a business with your significant other? Why or why not?
I have no interest in starting a business from the ground up. I don’t have the drive to setup the foundations of a business, let alone starting a business of some sort with my wife.
Bonus: Can money buy you love?
No. It makes some aspects of life easier, which may allow me time to explore my relationship with my wife. But money cannot buy love directly.
