Not only do money, cars, etc. not matter when it comes to having a successful marriage, but it' s all just fluff in life. Things that create a good marriage or those that come from both partners. The actual relationship, how you communicate and support each other is what' s key in making it for a life long marriage. I' m trying to show this to my boyfriend of almost 3 years. It' s hard for him to grasp because he' s so money oriented, and I hope that he makes a good decision in the end when it comes down to the final wire.
