So you should definitely protect yourself financially in the case of the relationship breaking down. JESS WRITES At 6pm tonight my partner Jack is going to pay off the last of his $35,000 debt. All with the help of your fantastic book.
When I met him three years ago, he was a debt-riddled 22-year-old father (of a little daughter) who could not say no to a good time. I gave him an ultimatum – get his finances up to scratch so we could start our future, or we have no future.
So he consolidated his debts and repaid Telstra, his parents, and the three debt collectors chasing him.
He then changed jobs and started making the “big bucks” in construction. He would come home covered head to toe in mud, with just the whites of his eyes glow- ing, while I helped peel off his muddy clothes.
He gave up time with his daughter to o work, while I learnt how to raise a child d who wasn’t mine. So, tonight he is going to pay off the last $2500 of the loan … and we can put this chapter behind us. He is going to be out of debt for the first time in 10 years! I want to cry I am so happy, and so proud of him (and us as a couple). Thanks for your help! BAREFOOT REPLIES: Amazing! Jack should be rightly proud of pulling himself out of the hole. Yet be honest – it was a team effort, right?
This is why I am so passionate about Barefoot Date Nights: they’re a once-amonth check-in, a time to refocus and track the progress you’re making towards your goals … and ultimately a celebration of the power that is you two!
You Got This!
