  • Ironically no.
    my DH and I are better off in that department then we pretty much ever have been.
    though I worry about the economy a lot and worry that we'll get sideswiped as a lot of people have.
    but best we can tell it's not going to happen since my DH works in a area that is actually growing in this economy.

    So i hope that it stays that way.

  • No we're not. But we want to make more money so we're trying to launch a few things now and another one in the next 5 years.

  • yes, it definitely afffects our relationship..
    i am on bedrest and havent been able to work.. so money got cut seriously and has been for MONTHS plus the months to come.. nothing really has changed though and that is whats causing our problems. he hasnt quit buying things we dont need and spends money on stuff making us short.. i want to find a more reasonable place but he refuses to.. we dont talk about it much and it just stays tense btw us..

  • No. We are doing fine financially. My dh and I both work and feel we are weathering the recession pretty well. My dh was promoted last year, received two raises, and up for another one in December. We have saved a little more and cut back some though. WE have been blessed... :) Hope everything gets better for the families struggling right now!

  • When the economy went off the cliff a few years ago, it hit me hard and I am still digging out. Money is very tight and will be for some time. My SO and I are talking about getting married and I feel terrible with all this debt because if we marry it becomes his debt too and that doesn't seem fair.
