Marriage and Finances: Me or the World?

If D, through her finances, can help someone truly in need or make someone happy, she will go out of her way (including entirely dropping her own financial plans) and do her bit. Her philosophy is that if your money can make your present a better world (qualitatively, not quantitatively), then that’s where you should channel your money.

I, on the other hand, have a plan for each and every rupee in my finances. My plan first and then the world.

It goes without saying that our perspectives have clashed at times. Which one’s right? Which one’s wrong? Is there a middle ground? I think there’s no definite answer to these questions because our individual perspectives are a direct result of our individual experiences and beliefs.

What do you think?
