Love and Money
1. Could you fall in love with and set up home with someone who has $100,000 (usd) in debt?
Jayden: Yeah. I essentially did in a previous relationship. But it’s okay. Richard is super debt-averse, which is fine by me!
Richard: Depends on their income, the type of debt, etc. 100K in student loans for someone pulling down six figures isn’t horrific. 100K in payday loans someone making 50K is a problem.
2. Is it important for you to be the breadwinner or make more money than your significant other?
Jayden: No. I don’t care. It all goes into one bucket.
Richard: I want to be a house husband/kept man and throw lavish parties.
3. Are you happy with your chosen career path? What could be better?
Jayden: Some days I love it. Other days, I lose 3 hours of sleep agonizing about it (and I’m on vacation this week!!!)
Richard: Not particularly. I don’t love my job, and I’m pretty sure it’ll be gone before I’m 50.
4. Would you start a business with your significant other? Why or why not?
Jayden: Sure. I’ve done it. I started one with my ex-husband. We still own it together. And…it’s fine. Sometimes he frustrates me, and I’m sure sometimes I frustrate him. But in the end, we’re both supportive of the business.
Richard: We’re totally going to get a movie deal, so I guess we’ll have to figure something out.
Bonus: Can money buy you love?
Jayden: I’m sure a sub could woo me by spoiling me financially, but I don’t think it’d ever be actual love. Money is great and all, but there are more important things. And boy did I prove that in the last ~2 years.
Richard: No. I’ve dated some girls who came from money, it doesn’t really help that much.
