Planning for a wedding is fun, saving up is not? Surprisingly, I disagree. Saving up is fun, fun, fun! Sadiq and I have a monthly routine to the banks. We share an account (which was created without any purpose initially, we were only 21 when we did it?) but we began putting in money when we got our first pay. It’s been a sweet journey to see the money grow from zero.
Anyway, both of us were really neutral about sharing an account. I’ve heard of stories where it’s said not to be healthy to be doing so, but to each his own. We do have our own separate savings account so this is something we call, ‘the fun account’ because it doesn’t have any purpose right now. In fact, I think it gives us more discipline to save. Perhaps for a future home, car, children…? We don’t really know, but I sure can’t wait to find out what He has in store for us both. 🙂
I’m just glad that my future life partner believes that above all, worldly wealth is only transitory. May we never be blinded by this momentary fortune and forget our roots.
