Every month, your rent should me no more than one AVERAGE week’s take home pay. This is not what you should spend, this is your upper limit.

I built my home on the pay as you go, no debt plan. That’s the only kind of monthly payments I like.

“I’m getting married to a wonderful man, but his 19-year old daughter from a previous marriage is very irresponsible. She doesn’t want to make her own car payments and doesn’t want to work. Lots of days, she sleeps until noon and just lies around the house. He agrees that he’s been too lenient and that she needs to grow up, but doesn’t want to pull the rug out from under her. What do you think? “

Kelly,

You don’t have a future-daughter-in-law problem, you have a fiance problem. Do not marry this man until you both can come to an agreement (and there is evidence that he is sticking to that agreement). Preferably, do not marry him until his daughter is moved out.

Man, oh man do I ever Praise the Lord I married a lass of Scottish descent with an accounting degree.

We both got laid off last year, after 21 and 23 years with the same company (Thanks, State Farm), but at least debt free, house paid for, Harley paid for, one income property owned free and clear. It might be tight but if we were in debt it would be far far worse.

Her attitude is always ‘prepare for the worst’.
