Well, I tried to be a little bit of a financial advisor to my eight-year-old son in the middle of a toy store.

He had a birthday certificate. He wanted to just spend it right then, even though he didn’t know what he wanted and couldn’t find the right gift.

He just got the certificate and wanted to spend it.

And I saw a little bit of myself in that.

I think we all do because we all love to spend. It’s an epidemic—we know that in our country—yet it just divides couples so much.

It’s challenging to try to counter our desires together and work at a couple.

Friend, think about that in your own relationship. Money talks and so can you.
