“My husband is reluctant to
work together financially. He has exhibited financial
irresponsibility.” Exasperated, she concludes, “How do I
save to accomplish financial goals alone?”


If she knew he was financially irresponsible, why did she marry him? Is this another case of, "Oh, we'll get married and hell see how wonderful things are and he'll change just because he loves me so much." ?

I'm sorry, I may sound like I have a cold, hard, heart, but I'm really tired of women that do not put any serious consideration into the person they are marrying and then get all upset when he turns out to be a jerk.
