My husband and I just finished up our yearly taxes.
Well, actually I did the bookkeeping all year long and Paul took the bazillions of numbers and made them fit into the multitude of forms (Lord, please bless whoever created TurboTax). I’m delighted to say that this year was easier and better than last year. We were less stressed and we handled it much better.
In part we have Dave to thank for better financial planning. In part it is because we are more patient with each other (practice, practice) and we work to face things together (we are a team).
Finances are one of the biggest stresses in marriage. Why not get practical about it? Work to get your finances in great shape and work out a financial system that is understandable to both you and your husband. It’s smart and it’s doable (yes, really it is).
Financial peace isn’t the acquisition of stuff. It’s learning to live on less than you make, so you can give money back and have money to invest. You can’t win until you do this. Dave Ramsey
