The World’s Most Romantic Valentine’s Day Gift

The World's Most Romantic Valentine's Day Gift

 

This year, my husband and I have decided to do something extra special for Valentine’s Day to show our love and commitment to each other. No, it isn’t pretty baubles to wear, nor is it flowers that wilt. We won’t be going to an expensive gluttonous meal or spending a single night in a hotel alone somewhere.

This year, we’re paying off a credit card for Valentine’s Day.

It might not be your traditional “be mine, Valentine,” gift, but for a marriage that we want to last a lifetime (and followed that up with some seriously awesome forever-after promises), I can’t think of anything more romantic. As one of the most common causes of divorce, money has a harsh impact on marriages. This year we’re taking one small jump towards becoming debt-free, a small jump along with the many baby steps we’ve made throughout the years.

The credit card we’re paying off is a small one, and one we would be paying off in the next few months anyway. We probably could have afforded a couple of small commercial traditional gifts, and waited on the card. However, I can’t think of anything longer lasting than the gift of less debt. Few gifts would show our committment to making this marriage long term than getting rid of those lingering payments that affect your financial–and marital–stability.

To my husband, who will probably only read this post because I’m going to print it out for him (sorry, sweetie, but it’s true and you know it!), I’m grateful for all the times you’ve told me NO so we could achieve our goal of being debt free. I’m sorry I haven’t made it easier! I’m so excited that we’re growing ever closer to paying off all that nasty debt, and it truly makes me love you more to know how hard you’ve personally worked so we can accomplish this. I want to live debt free with you… forever!

    I’m so proud of you guys! What a wonderful step to take together. Before you know it, (after many more months/years of waiting), you’ll be able to know you’ve worked hard to be together, debt-free, forever. You can do it!

    • Thank you Nicole!! Fortunately, we have spent several years already on this goal (albeit sometimes less dedicated than others) so we don’t have much longer until we are out of debt – except for a house that we’re FINALLY planning on buying! Can’t wait for the light at the end of the dark, dark tunnel!
