Peter and Loveth got married without considering their financial incompatibility. She is the extravagant type while he is the prudent type.
Months into their marriage, the problem came up, but this time around the burden was too much on Peter who is the sole financial source of the family.
His account was going RED because Loveth loves to shop often, eat out in expensive restaurants.
One faithful day, Peter came back from work and he presented a budget on how they are to spend money in the family, stating their income and every necessary expense ranging from gas refill to hair cut.
He also had a miscellaneous account wherein they could buy things from at anytime outside their budget. This didn’t go down well with Loveth and it led to series of disagreements and arguments. The couple had to visit their marriage mentor to present the challenge at hand. Over time, she came along and began to live within the budget.
