I know. I know. You don't come here for relationship advice. You come here to get a greater understanding of personal finance, and I try very hard to play only in that niche. Today is different because one of the best relationship articles I've ever read was posted in the NY Times, and it prominently features one of the relationship columnists I most admire, Dan Savage. So, whether you are single, married, partnered, widowed, divorced, gay, straight, bi, or some other identification, this article holds something for you. It is LONG, but it is well worth the read. Most of the knee jerk comments that follow it are not. Alas it is true that some ideas are ahead of their time, but in most cases I find there are just a lot people that are behind the times.
Here's the article. ENJOY!
PS I am planning a follow-up article on how the principles of good, giving, and game apply to personal finance.
