Money changes more than your pocket it actually bends and distorts time! Things that you planned a lifetime to get all of a sudden appear tomorrow. Places you planned to go for retirement you cross off your list this summer. What you wanted to do for your mother you took care of before you took care of yourself. Cars you only imagined to drive are a choice of how much you want to show off. So why wouldn’t it push back the time you decided to get married?
It’s a fact that most of your educated people who have a master level or professorial level degree do not get married into well into their 30′s or 40′s. It’s also a fact that most people who run a profitable business also jump the broom with little to no vertical leap left. Another fact is most people who marry before they have money divorce the person they built it with once they have it. Yet one more fact is the number 1 reason for divorce surrounds the lack of money and the sacrifices others are unwilling to make. Now none of these facts are 100% valid but they are the current statistics and trends.
I say all that to say money will destroy the timetable you had before you had money. Higher education which translates into more money will destroy the timetable you had when you got out of high school. Do not spend anytime fretting or comparing yourself to the standards held by those who have built their life on what job people will give to them, what vacation time someone will give to them, what party time someone will give to them and overall what opportunities someone will give to them!
Money changes the timetable and allows you to determine when you actually want to bring these things and people into your life. Most likely money will allow you to see more than your high school sweetheart. Most likely money will introduce you to the big house instead of the starter house. Money will take you to a great restaurant instead of where you guys bumped into each other trying to save a buck. So nothing will be the same not even that PoorMan’s timetable!
