Your money and family is a blog series that brings you into heavy contents about my experience being a new father who trying to juggle money and family matters, which both are the most vital element. It's like a WiiFit Balance Board; on your left foot is money and on your right foot is your family. Failing to balance the need of the family, leads to more money followed by inevitable disaster of family institution. Failing to balance your money will let the enormous debt support your family lifestyle, and see yourself standing on the brink of destruction. Someday you can't shoulder the weight of the debt and eventually your family feel the money shortage in sluggish mode.
Although you have heard 'everything's family' phrase everywhere you go, as for my opinion, there are circumstances where money is more important than your family. Through my experience as a new father, there are times when you can't distinguished between family need and want, and consequently you spending your money like crazy on unwanted things. I've experienced several mouth fights over money, heavy debating about what needs to be put on first priority, and excessive arguments about our child's expenses against my beloved wife. It was so hard to reach mutual agreement between us but we managed to give a nod to each other in the end.
