When we got married we didn’t have much of a plan other than we wanted this marriage to last. Conversations about our finances were casually brought up and that’s because we knew we needed a plan to save money if we wanted to move in together and make this relationship work. I was unemployed and didn’t have money to contribute. However, that did not stop me from educating myself on becoming smart with our money. Long distance relationship meant a lot of traveling both ways, flights, hotels, food, entertainment, you name it!
