My husband and I started our love with little budget in our pockets. He was somehow generous that time, and still up until now. The reason he gave me is that he never experienced the freedom of eating the food he wants when in work. He works abroad, inside a ship. He is a seaman. Being a seaman, when at work, he is getting a large sum of salary. But money isn't the reason why we became a couple and why we married early.
LOVE works for both of us. If love was not present in our relationship and money only matters, then we could have been separated a long time ago. he may have been receiving a lot of money from work, but when he goes back home, he stops working and receives no salary. And that we spend money he worked hard for months.
