Thanks for sharing this incredibly sweet story with a fellow sap. You and Gwen sound ridiculously adorable together. And I appreciated the analogy you used to illustrate abundance mindset.
As relationships go, I find that the biggest deal breakers tend to include money, sex, religion, kids, geography, and family obligations. To have the money issue resolved at the outset can really help everything else fall into place.
The last woman I dated before I met my wife was a spender. I continue to be a saver. I lived in constant fear that she saw me as a way to subsidize her irresponsible lifestyle.
In contrast, my wife and I are both frugal savers who agree on 95% of the big items in life. I’ve never felt more comfortably myself around another non-family member. We often talk about the difference between black and white and color as the feelings we felt before and after we met.
Wishing you and Gwen happiness,
