Your household income during this time is what is about a hundred twenty thousand and it went up two hundred sixty thousand. Whoa, nice. What do y'all do for a living, physical therapist? And I work for electric cooperative is a communications coordinator. Oh, very cool. Congratulations. So when when when did you get married, exactly April seventh? Okay. All right. And so before that you had already started getting out of debt. We did. Yes. Cash flow, the wedding get married and finish up knocking off the bat. What kind of debt was the forty thousand is kind of. A combination of things we had pretty much the typical things we had two cars both of them had names Bertha and Martha white same had some leftover student loans that she had that we took care of as well. So we started financial peace last August and. Here's one of those things where when we first started it. I'm very gung ho on things. Sam Sam takes little more time to warm up to those those things until we ended up doing financial peace university down there in Murfreesboro. And I just really sparked a fire that got us got us go in and was actually the reason why I was even able to save up for an engagement ring for to marry this pretty lady here. There you go well done. Good job. Well done. How old are you to twenty nine and you have no dad? No. Next feel good guess what? Cray way to start your marriage to. It is an even today.

Yeah. You're gonna it's bright very very bright. Good for you. All right. So what do you tell a young engaged? Couple out. There listening that the secret to getting out of debt is. I guess you gotta go about the right way. When we first started doing this. Of course, I'm very. Into things when I when I started doing doing I'm going one hundred percent. And so you definitely don't want to beat the other person over the head with it. So at one point we were on a date and Sam was like, listen, you know, I love you. But I would rather be on a date with you and not Dave Ramsey. So. Kind of thing that I kind of had to grow into a little bit. But had to change the way he was. Yeah. Listen to one of his live airs or on the podcast got it started. Okay. Yeah. You get sick of hearing him talk about. Yeah. And three Mr. enthusiasm over gauge couples. I would say that that if you can eliminate any struggles before you get married. Yeah. I think that it really makes it easier. I mean, we're still in that honeymoon stage. So there's you know, of course, we've not had any knock down drag out fight yet. And I'm sure at some point in the future that might happen. But at least it won't be about money or least hopefully it's not about money. It'll be about something else. You know about. Yes. That's a fair point. Good job guys. That's wonderful. Great. Great job. Very very fun. Who were your biggest cheerleaders other than each other? Probably our parents and then nurture family, and then our friends, okay?
