Familiar story. I'm sure somewhere out there a spouse has put the other through school, spent heavily to start their business for them, etc. and everything has worked out great. But I only seem to hear stories like yours. I've lost whole years worth of income supporting a few different women with tireless hope and encouragement only to discover that they (like apparently lots of folks out there) will never in their lives be able to understand why they should ever be even partially accountable for paying it back it when they abandon the project and the relationship.I feel V E R Y strongly about keeping money separate. If love has nothing to do with money then it is no threat to love to look at it frankly, regularly, and together and by using actual mathematics when doing so. In my view, there just aren't that many things in life worth buying to begin with anyway. Life should be about doing, understanding, making.Single now, but cannot imagine even meeting a girl for coffee if she cannot first prove that she can and has been earning her own living for many years running AND finds the idea of not paying her own way to be utterly disgusting.
