Karen – I’m glad to hear you and your husband are working together as a team! That was such an important part of Russ and Kandy’s story. It’s also great that you’ve figured out who has stronger budgeting skills, which is sometimes an area that causes strife in a marriage. When the spouse without that “bent” tries to manage the budget, he/she can easily feel frustrated or overwhelmed. It’s much better to give that responsibility to the person who enjoys the details — as long as the husband and wife come together to review the budget on a regular basis. Kudos to you and your husband for using this process!
