He Needs Love Right Now!
Dear Dave, My husband and I are adopting my nephew. His mom is involved with drugs and alcohol, and his father isn’t in the picture. We’ve got $1,000 in the bank, and we’re in the process of paying off all our debt, except the house. Should we slow down or stop the Baby Steps temporarily, and spend more on family things since my nephew is a teenager? Jocelyn Dear Jocelyn, Hugs are free. Making cookies costs next to nothing, and spending quality time with a young man or woman doesn’t cost a thing. I call that a teenager-friendly environment. I know your heart is in the right place, but I don’t want you to fall into the American trap of thinking he’ll be happy if he has a Wii or you take expensive vacations every year. It sounds to me like he’s coming straight out of a big mess. He wants and needs someone to put their arms around him, tell him he’s a good guy, and teach him how to grow into a stro man. Doing some affordable family things once in a while is okay, if you can make it work with your budget. But I wouldn’t spend a bunch of money to try and prove that you love him. You’ve already proven that by bringing him into your home and making him part of your family. Continue cleaning up your finances. Then, when you’ve actually got some money to spend, you all can do some really cool stuff together. You guys are awesome! Dave College Or The House? Dear Dave, My wife and I make about $100,000 a year combined, and we’re debt-free. Recently, we got an insurance settlement of $95,000. We have an $89,000 mortgage and a 19-month old baby. Should we use the settlement money to pay off the house, Please See Ramsey Page 7

July 26, 2011 - August 8, 2011 Dear Dave, How do you feel about pre-nuptial agreements? Anonymous Dear Anonymous, When I first started financial counseling, I told people to never get a pre-nup under any circumstances. Basically, I felt the whole process was like planning your divorce in advance. I still feel that way to a degree, because if money is more important to you than the person you supposedly love, then you don’t really love them and you have no business getting married. I’ve changed my stance a little bit, though, and now I feel a pre-nup may be in order under one condition: If there are substantial assets in one person’s name. By “substantial,” I mean $2 million or more. I’ve counseled several wealthy people, some of whom were heading into a second marriage. It’s not that wealthy folks are weird or necessarily greedy, but sometimes they attract weird and greedy people. In these kinds of cases, I’m okay with a prenup. But I still think you should love somebody enough to be willing to take a bullet for them if you’re thinking about marrying them. Dave For more financial help, please visit daveramsey.com.

One of my favourite Bible verses happens to be, “As A man thinketh in his heart so is he”. This wise message from the book of Proverbs really cuts to the chase. I mean if a person thinks they are evil or wicked, then they certainly must be of that persuasion. If that same person tells you that they are happy and have the joy of The Lord then they are indeed also following Proverbs. I’ll bet the second person lives a lot longer and probably has a heck of a lot more fun. Skip forward a couple of thousand years to the 1960’s and I seem to recall that Roger Miller sang a little song that you either loved, or hated. In that song Miller educated us to the fact that you can’t roller skate in a buffalo heard and you can’t change film (predigital age ask your parents about it kids). with a kid on your back but lo and behold you can be happy if you’ve a mind to. I could name a bunch of cliché one liners to make my point but the one I love is that one that goes something like this. “I was sad I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet”. That one kinda gets to me every time I think about it. As my friend Oscar Rogers once told me, “Everybody has problems”. In reality if that is true then how do we become happy.
