We are The Millennial Money Couple. This blog was started to hopefully show you how a typical (?) millennial couple handles their money.
We are Mr. and Mrs. MMC. We are both college educated mid/upper level employees (Mr. MMC works for a construction company that does business up and down the west coast, and Mrs. MMC is a government employee that works with the elderly and disabled). We both work 55-65 hours a week (although 65+ hour weeks are not uncommon!). And we both try to live active lifestyles by going the gym every day.
We both know what the grind is all about – we try to save as much $$$ as we can to hopefully end this grind sooner than later. But we know it’s going to be a long, hard road to retirement for us.
A little more about who we are and how we met –
We are part of the 5% of Americans who are in a marriage or committed relationship say they met their significant other online – thank you match.com!
We live in Orange County, CA. Home of the $645,000 median home price. Birthplace of the Housewife (Mrs. MMC seems to regularly run in to Vicky and her daughter Brianna).
This blog is intended to be a window into how we save (Mr. MMC), how we spend (Mrs. MMC), and how we enjoy our money. We don’t always see eye to eye, but we both know our ultimate goal is to retire with dignity. So enjoy our story as we continue to tell it!
