Your wife asked the impossible, and you promised it. Investment without risk is an oxymoron. IMO, the two of you need to talk a lot about investing. The emotional side of investing. Your hopes and dreams. How fear and greed affect you. Maybe she doesn't want to be picking stocks with you. That's OK, but you need her to have some level of buy-in to what you're doing. Instead, you made a promise. This gives her permission to avoid dealing with investment issues. But now a mistake can become an issue of trust. This puts a lot of pressure on you, and your relationship.Slow down, read a lot, and don't shoot for the moon. And revisit that promise, OK?>>>This is as good as I have seen it discussed.
