Fast forward 2007, my wife and I got married. We struggled after buying our first house. To make things worse, I felt terrible because there were times when I was exhausted from work and yet barely got an extra dime to pay off our debts. I felt horrible because I was supposed to be the man in the relationship, but my wife was working two jobs and we barely see each other 6 days a week! I was working to death and yet I'm a failure as a husband.
There was one time when she got sick for a week and we barely got any food in the fridge. Bad times and equally good times man! I can still feel it like it was yesterday.
That moment made me think about how my college degree and my stable government job would barely get us through life. Doing what we were doing, we'll always be broke and beaten up…despite giving all our time and energy to our jobs.
Then, as if by chance, something amazing happened...
