From Prudence Debt Free …
I’m Ruth and I’m 55 years old, and my husband David is 59. Of our 3 daughters, two are in their 20s and have flown the nest, and the youngest, 19, continues to live with us.
David and I earn a household income that is above average, but it’s not as high as the income we used to receive before the high tech bust of the early millennium sent us reeling.
This is my advice to anyone struggling with money – particularly if that person is middle-aged and has been through significant financial upheaval.
