Top Ten Reasons To Get Married: Money

Here goes, the number 9 reason to get married:

No.9 - Marriage increases your earning power

You know that big-screen TV you've been saving for? Well, if you were married, you'd probably own it by now. Being married means sharing expenses and splitting the costs of major purchases. You cynics out there gripe about the money women cost you, but the money you'd spend on dinner dates and the occasional gift is dwarfed by the prospect of having an extra income in the household. Marriage means you can afford the things you could never afford on your own; it means a better home, a better car, a better vacation, and cooler stuff.

First life now money? This marriage thing is going to be even better than I thought :) I'm very fortunate to be marrying a woman whose spending habits are much like mine- we try not to buy anything!! We've had almost a permanent cringe on our face while shopping for furniture for our house, but we keep telling ourselves that this stuff will last us the next 20 years. Plus, we've been looking for really big stuff so we have to buy less of it! It has been fun though. We've had our interior designer (aka Mandi's mom) along with us which has come as a big help. Let's just say that Mandi and I don't have quite the eye that Nancy does.

Well, that's enough for now, apparently I need to go and pick out a big-screen TV!
