We consider ourselves extremely lucky that we are both interested in managing our finances without an expensive adviser and wonder why so many people whether single or attached don't. With many couples it is usually one who is trying to get his or her spouse interested, or the differences are similar to ours, one is overly aggressive and the other is overly conservative.
I know we are the lucky ones. We have each other to help bear the burden of aging, to soften the blows of time. He's always been my safe space to land, the one whom I trust completely and who can make me laugh at anything, most importantly, at myself. But selfishly, I don't want him to grow old too. It's just too damn scary and he's too much to lose.
