Money Can’t Buy Me Love.
Do you grumble everyday about money? The cost of living is rising with petrol up and this will cause many things to go up because of the transportation cost. Food will also be more expensive or you get a smaller amount.
Everything seems to be going up except your salary. Even if they go up, it will still be lacking behind the cost of living and inflation. Your $$$ seems to be shrinking. You get fewer goods and less petrol or you have to pay more for the same amount.
In marriage, there are three main issues, money, sex and power. Money conflicts affect our daily life. Most of us are just average wage earner and we have to juggle and stretch our money to survive.
We have to save and plan for the rainy days. Many today do not have savings for old age because of the sky rocketing living expenses and the servicing of the many loans.
Many are living on borrowed money .Spending today and paying tomorrow. We have pawned our souls to the devils (banks and financial institutions) and become their slaves.
Some of us could be earning a few thousands and yet they are still having financial problems. The poor who earns little can still survive on their meager incomes. The problem is not about having enough cash but in the usage. You need to live according to your income. Cut your clothes according to your size .If you live beyond your means, you will be heading for bankruptcy and ruins.
Many young graduates are bankrupt because they don’t know how to handle money and spend like they is no tomorrow. They follow with the Jones and buy a new car, house and all sorts of gizmo’s all on credit. They fall into the debt trap set by those banks who give them credit cards and loans and they cannot get out.
There are two types of people. The first type, money is their servant while the second type is; they are a servant to money. The first type will be rich as money will work for them .They buy properties and houses and rent them out to make money. The second type will rent those houses and money becomes their masters.
Whether you will be rich or poor will depend on your attitude towards money.
Some people will think it is better to enjoy now because no one knows what happens in the future.
You could be dead and if you don’t enjoy now, you won’t be able to enjoy when you are dead. What is the meaning of life? You work like a robot or machine and somebody spends your money.
Another group thinks money is for rainy days. We don’t know what will happen in the future and we must save some in case they maybe needed. We are still being told to save for our children’s education. Right now, there is a govt. body which gives loans to every eligible student .
Another group thinks that money is for sharing or to give some to the less fortunate ones. Do good unto others and you will reap what you sow. It may not be money but could be health or success.
When you are married, you may have different attitudes towards money and you need to compromise. Do not think and do unilaterally but get a consensus with your partner before you spend your money.
A marriage is like a partnership in a business. You both have equal rights and pull the same weight.
