Choices & Consequences

With the pending draft in two days and the future of many men waiting in the balance, the choices these men make will ultimately decide their career futures.  A game they’ve played since they began walking, will turn some into millionaires, changing their world in an instant.  Never was there a truer statement than when the late Notorious B.I.G. uttered, “more money, more problems.”  Money may change, and theoretically cure, numerous disadvantages and problems, but it also causes just as many, if not more.  The allure and chase of the almighty dollar brings forth a plethora of family, friends, and strangers alike, who all have issues and need help. Coupled with an unyielding sense of responsibility, wanting to save and help all those who sacrificed and paved the way to make this moment happen,  how is a 22 year old young man who has never had to manage a checkbook, let alone a multi-million dollar portfolio, supposed to adequately handle this new life?  Let’s not forget that he is embarking on a new career with its own set of pressures also tied to the millions that are being paid and the expectations of a profitable return on that dollar.

Brother Word,

I make more money than my husband and it has caused issues in our marriage and is a constant source of discontent between my husband and me.  I’m not sure how to resolve this issue or how to appease my husband’s pride and dignity.  Is this an issue of my husband being uncomfortable not being the main bread winner or a sense of embarrassment amongst our peers?  How can we move past this? 

Sincerely,

Money Talks
