The whole aim of me setting up of www.GoMarry.com and creating Marriage Meetings was to build stronger families. Thus in my view, helping family members out in time of need is definitely an attractive trait. Others might not have the same viewpoint.
Things to discuss:
How will they respond to helping your brother with his rent, tuition fees, etc? What would be your reaction if your husband or wife took some money from your family savings, but obviously not compromising your basic needs, to sort out their family members? Would you agree to forego some luxuries?
- Do you have any issues with me supporting my parents through their old age financially?
- Would you be willing to make cutbacks for me to meet my above obligations?
- What is your viewpoint in helping family members financially?
- Who deserves it and who doesn’t?
