Many couples use credit cards to keep them afloat as they take care of essentials and to keep up with their neighbors and friends. It doesn’t have to be that way though.
Live Simple, Be Happy
The good news is that they were able to turn it around and on today’s podcast you’ll get to hear their story.
As we chatted during the interview, Mark and Lauren took the time to share:
- how they achieved the typical American dream, but how their debt affected their marriage and family
- when they decided they needed to change and what was the first thing to go
- how simplifying their lives made their marriage stronger and their finances solid
You’ll notice that Lauren and Mark have no problem being completely open about what went well and how they coped as couple through the transition.
I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did!
