Does your spouse/SO like to save as much as you do?
I'm divorced, but my ex was not frugal when we were married and I doubt that he is now.
No. But it's good. I've learned to loosen up and enjoy a bit, and he's learned to coupon and look for bargains at thrift stores.
No, but he's getting better. He often reminds me to take a step back and think before purchases...but I get so tired of being SO frugal all the time!
My husband hates spending money. I thought I was frugal until I met him! It has worked out well though. My ex spent every dime I had and left me broke, so I'll take my frugal fella.
No he was not and he had a ----well i deserve this and that mentality---when we married. Now he is a lot better. Thanks to me being super frugal, we live in a beautiful home in a great neigborhood and have a savings account . We choose to live below our means. I am looking forward to being an empty nester in a few years and traveling a whole bunch. Cant wait.
He does now. In the past he didn't understand the meaning until he got laid off. Now even though he has a job again he is not scared to bust out a coupon or shop sales.
