It's actually pretty exciting to be part of a "team" and be working toward goals together and supporting each other in those goals. I'm learning so much about investing and money management from my husband (who is a natural saver, unlike my own inclinations) and I find the whole subject fascinating.

You are quite lucky in that regard. It can be very difficult if you are fighting debt and a reluctant spouse/partner. It sounds as if both of you are committed to making this work and have a good plan put together in order to make that happen.

It's a whole new world!

Oh yeah, I meant to welcome you earlier as another fellow Chicago area resident. I have been seeing more and more Chicago area residents on the Fool lately. I am in the far west suburbs.
