Josh and Brandon bonded over music and have been going strong for twelve years. However, they never talk about money. The lack of balance in their financial contributions and Josh’s hectic work schedule is causing tension—especially for Brandon who is not the breadwinner.
They both admit to being frivolous spenders never looking at their spending, and only having $5,000 in savings. Brandon also struggles with not “pulling more weight” with their finances, even though he’s the happiest he’s been with where he’s at. For him, balance is important. He feels if he made more money, maybe Josh would work less and have more time to spend together—like they used to.
Misty suggests they create a budget to know what their monthly expenses are and recommends they open one joint account that they both contribute to. She encourages Josh to take time each week to not work and spend with Brandon. Will this couple be able to implement Misty’s recommendations and learn to balance a budget, and their work and personal life? Watch the full episode of Heartbroke to find out.
