How do you deal with watching people you love make dumb financial decisions?

I don't. If a decision is being discussed, I'll chime in with my opinion/advice, if asked, only once. After that I don't want to hear about it again. You made up your own mind, against my advice, and now want to lay your complaints on the consequences you're experiencing all over me? Talk to the hand, I'm not listening. If they want to force such conversation on me, I'll remove myself from the radius that their voice carries.

Loving someone as a person does not mean you're obligated to let their bad decisions negatively effect you.
