Convincing the other half .....
My husband and I are 23 and 25 years old. A couple of months ago I proposed this idea to him to sail to the Caribbean. We are selling our first home soon, and since we live in Florida, of course we made a ton of money off of it. So with this extra cash, I told him what an exciting oppurtunity this has opened up for us. We could buy a larger boat and sail off, then worry about what happens next when we get home (if we ever decide to come back) At first he thought i was nuts, and now he is more and more seeing the reality of it. We have been doing alot of research together, looking at boats, and reading plenty of stories of other people who have done this sucessfully. He knows how much this means to me, and he loves the idea too, and is going along with all of the preparations so far, but he is worried. .......
He is so worried about what is goign to happen when we get back. I see as such an oppurtunity becuase we are so young, with nothign to lose. No real ties to our careers, since we just graduated college in the last 2 years, no kids, and no debt to worry about.
I don't necessarily need to convince him, that has been done and he's excited, he just doesn't have the confidence that i have that this is a positive thing for our future, and not somethign that will kick us in the butt down the road....
ANy ideas, websites, articles, or testimonies, that might help me to show him that the world will be waiting for us right where left it when we return?
