Ask Dave

Long Drive

Kerry's husband drives 8 hours to work each day, and Dave thinks it's NUTS! He can't be a dad and a husband on that schedule.

QUESTION: Kerry and her husband have $285,000 in debt, including a car loan and student loans. Her husband drives 8 hours per day to work. She's tried to get him to start his own consulting business. What does Dave think of that?

ANSWER: You gotta be kidding me! That's suicide! I'd go postal if that was me. I would live in a one-bedroom apartment and stack everyone to the ceiling before I drive that much per day. You need to sell your house and move or he needs to find a new job. This is NUTS! He can't be a dad or have a life with a schedule like that. It's CRAZY!
