<<SP, you may be surprised to hear this but I can understand where your POV comes from. This is something that I thought a lot about during my dating period and engagement to DF.>>

Thanks for not biting my head off.

I seem to recall a thread from a few months ago which discussed women's reactions to men who didn't use deoderant. The reaction was decidedly negative, with many women saying they would say "No, thanks."

I would personally like to establish a norm that had a similar reaction to people who have significant amounts of debt without good reason, or perhaps regardless of the reason.

But we don't have such a norm now, and I hope you and your husband work make it work.
