My husband wants space and I don't. Are we doomed?

My husband and I have been together for three years and always struggled with the balance of personal space. I don't need to be alone at all — in fact I hate it. He is the opposite and thinks we should live apart, feels smothered…

How can our relationship survive if he doesn't want to be around me 90% of the time? Isn't him wanting to live separately just the first step in ending the relationship? Or is it already over, and I'm refusing to acknowledge it?

How do you handle money and debt in a relationship?

My partner and I are cool with a lot of things, but in certain arenas we just don't line up. How do you reconcile it when one person in a relationship feels that debt is a sad reality of this modern life, and accepts debt as "just something that happens," and the other person is more in line with the "DEBT IS AN EMERGENCY" kinda deal?

I'm just curious how people reconcile different attitudes toward saving money.
