In every relationship there are two types of people: the spender and the saver (or some call it the nerd). In our marriage we are an anomaly. We are both nerds. We are both savers and planners and conservative when it comes to our finances. You can only imagine how much excitement our weekly budget meeting holds. Yes, we have a weekly budget meeting.
Case in point, when we went to our premarital counseling session our leader asked us to bring our budget for our next meeting. We looked at each other and seriously asked, “Do you want our working budget, our long term financial goals, our short term financial goals, or all of it?” He just stared at us and after a long pause said, “Just bring it all.”
