Link love (Powered by matters of the heart)

NZ Muse - Link love - blogging roundup

Thoughts for the week:

It’s amazing how powerful inertia and fear of change is.

It’s amazing how long people can tolerate living in limbo.

This week’s links

Ask yourself the hard questions

When financial fatigue gets the best of you

Class mobility, decision fatigue and budget failure 

The times when you need to say no

What exactly makes a happy marriage?

Marrying for money

And on a lighter note:

What happened when I tried being white (oh how I relate! Today I love my straight hair and my weirdly shaped eyes, but not that long ago I was obsessive about my lack of lashes and flat nose)

    I guess if marrying for money worked for her.. why not ? I just read it though and felt a little sad. It’s like since he makes the money, he has the right to tell her to work out and “keep up her body” and basically control her like a thing he owns.

    I suppose that is exactly the reason why I make my own money and I am 50/50 for spending. My own partner can be a little controlling & ambitious too (being older as well) but I have 50/50 say in everything even if I have to remind him of that sometimes (then he backs off).

    Great link.

      Yeah, that was the only part that squicked me out.
