There will be a time when you must leave the

comforts of your parents home and head out on


your own.
Like a young eagle that has been nurtured by his
mother for the first few years of its life, but must
eventually leave the security of his nest to survive
on his own. Well, you ARE that eagle!
This project is designed to consider the real life
economic challenges that exist when young adults
decide to live on their own. Whether you are
headed to college, or entering your career, you
need to be aware of the economic realities you will
encounter in the real world.
There will be different
parts to this project
that requires
dedication
from both partners. So
be sure to pick the right
mate!!!
Marriage is an adventure, like going
to war.
Marriage is like a phone call in the
night; first the ring, and then you
wake up.
Love is blind, marriage is the
eye-opener.
Marriage is a relationship in which one
is always right and the other is the
husband.
