    good points, but i believe in old school living. I think the country needs to go back to the days when it was OK for wives/moms to be at home and the husbands/fathers were the breadwinners. Life was so much simpler back then.

    but what about the growth that happens or does not happen timely. what about the frustrations of paying bills and maintaining the household if there is not enough income. what about expectations not being met and then money is short? i know loving your man is a good thing but what about the other "stuff" that comes along with the lack of funds when the dreams and vision are taking a bit longer to turn into expectations met?

    next…have your answered or touched upon brothers not finding work…after they've looked for over a year? i know a brother…husband and father of 2 who parks cars and jumps off of delivery trucks in peak delivery season to bring in some quan…he has a masters degree and has held some good positions with top companies but cannot get a "real" gig to save his life. economy? racism?

    Great video. I'm in the same situation. I just got engaged and 2x my b/f has lost his job due to the economy. I know he feels down, but I do remind him he's priceless in value because of his integrity, loyalty and emotional availability and will be a great husband. Others don't quite get it because they focus on materialistic values. I agree , the couple that can grow together and love will succeed.

    i loved this couples conversation …. i was NOT offended when the husband said he had more common sense than his wife. i think it was a relationship's accessment and not a universal statementment of everyone's situation. google me at: "warren otis fisher" and listen to my jazz band tribute for SINATRA !

    This couple made some great points; however, I was offended when the husband made the comment that he'd like to believe that he has more common sense than his wife. He is street smart and she is book smart. Why is it assumed that if someone is book smart, that they do not have common sense? Personally, I think this showed his insecurity while his wife sat beside him building him up.

    Women who hold their purse over their partners head are doomed for divorce. Men have big ego's.
