  • One spouse?

    Just kidding! Saw the one car and could not resist!

    Apparently my wife's coworker claims they have 2 husbands in another country and is in the process of trying to divorce them. Do not recommend any more than 1 spouse.

      Naughty, naughty. Sometimes even 1 spouse is 1 too many…

        My opinion is pretty much the same. Number of spouses greater than or equal to yourself. I grew up in a place where you had to have a spouse so that has significantly shaped my opinion. The peace of mind is worth it to me.

            It was my exact same post in Nysoz 's thread except I basically replaced 'vehicle' with 'spouse'. I knew it had the potential for a very high miss rate and I wasn't wrong.

                But I like that you'll take the shot.

                    For most on this board, the financially optimal number of spouses is zero.

                    There may be considerations other than financial ones.

                        Those married tax brackets are pretty financially helpful.

                          hmmm i wonder. I know marriage is not always easy, but my wife is such a huge blessing and without her i would probably do a lot of dumb stuff.

                          Hard to put a math number on it, but having someone genuinely love my unattractive/ ugly self is remarkable and makes me more productive.

                          Being lonely pretty much sucks.

                          That said, one is enough.

                          You could say the same about any family member…..kids…..dog……mother-in-law.

                          Behavioral finance is more complicated the just math.

                          Happy people do better work.

                            Diversification has it’s benefits I guess. One cannot always pick the long term #1 performing spouse.

                            Not sure rebalancing would work well, trimming the winners and investing in the losers sounds really difficult.

                            Non financial considerations are important aren’t they?

                              Don't be so closed minded people... "Don't knock it till you try it" as they say.

                              (Heck I can barely handle 1 girlfriend.)
