Welcome to another Marriage Monday. Today, we are talking about money , and the effect of it on your marriage. Eddie and I recently celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary. When we first got married back in April of 1985, we made the decision, that I would be a stay at home wife. That really turned out to be a wise decision, due to my health problems. We are not wealthy, never have been, and never will be. We do not have the most up to date electronic gadgets, we do not have a house, we have lived in apartments our entire marriage. We do not wear name designer clothes, or shoes. We have never been able to travel on vacations. We always had used cars, until in 2000, we were blessed to get our first brand new car. It was a beautiful 2000 blue mustang, we call her, mustang sally. We are so proud of that car, that still remains our only vehicle. We do not eat out at the best restaurants, when we do eat out, it is at fast food drive thrus. My fingers, and neck, are not filled with diamond jewelry. Of course, I do not need to visit a hair salon, lol I care nothing about visiting a tanning salon. I have never had my nails, or toenails done. But, you know what? We are as happy, as two love bugs, snuggled up in a comfortable rug, laughing, and loving, the days and nights, away. All we need, is each other, and our precious Lord. There have been some tough times financially, due to Eddies health crisis, back in 2010, and then my stroke last year. The medical bills piled up, but God intervened on our behalf, praise Him, and we survived. Thanks to the prayers, love, and help of our precious friends, we made it through. We are forever thankful. Marriage is not about the money you have, it is about the love you share with one another, and the memories you make.
